Anyone try Cults & Daggers?

22 March 2015 - 11:18 AM

I haven't bought it yet -- a bit pricey, but the look/art intrigues me, as does the apparent construction of the game. I've been on a computer board game kick lately, and it sort of seems to channel some of that, but appears to be much more complex (which I've also been looking for).

Cults and Daggers is a strategy game set in the Hellenistic era between the death of Buddha and the birth of Christ.

You create your own religion and fight a secret war for the soul of the world. With your disciples you spread your faith throughout the Mediterranean world by preaching to the people and converting noble families. You and the other cults are the hidden powers behind history, you secretly manipulate the rise and fall of great city states to further your ambitions.

But the Old God’s are also stirring, taking advantage of the time between Buddha and Christ to try and destroy the world they can no longer rule. You must stop them by sending your disciples to their places of power and defeating their evil.

A sprawling, deep and complex game which covers over 400 years of history, spies, assassinations, double dealing, occult forces , martyrs , prophets and blasphemers.

Write your own myths. Single player against the AI or upto 4 player Multiplayer.

If there was some serious interest in the game, I'd drop some money on it to play against some people here. There is a play by email option.

That’s why you haven’t heard anyone saying anything, but a lot of people are having a very hard time because what they seen was unbelievable and it’s been impossible to go back to Madden or even take Madden seriously after that. It’s like, how you felt when you had an NES and you saw Sega Genesis for the first time. The step up in quality is THAT big.

Sounds suspicious, but here's hopin'.

‘Blurred Lines’ Verdict: Pharrell, Robin Thicke Ordered to Pay $7.3 Million to Marvin Gaye Family

In a landmark decision for the music industry, a jury in Los Angeles ordered “Blurred Lines” songwriters Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams to pay $7.3 million to the family of Marvin Gaye for copyright infringement on Tuesday.

Gaye’s family had argued that the 2013 smash hit “Blurred Lines” copied their father’s 1977 song “Got to Give It Up” and sued Thicke, Williams and Clifford Harris Jr., aka T.I., whom all contested the infringement.

Overall, the Gaye family sought more than $25 million in damages.

“Right now, I feel free,” Marvin Gaye’s daughter, Nona Gaye, said after the verdict. “Free from … Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told.”

On the one hand, I'm not a huge fan of IP laws. On the other, Robin Thicke is kind of a horses ass sooo...karma?

Anyone catch The Returned on A&E?

Kind of started out as a shot for shot remake, but lacks some of the tension, cinematography and music (Mogwai) of the original. Dutch angles aplently.

A&E seems to be trying to up its game in general.
