    Man, this is Expeditions in name only.
    I was hyped at first. Now, it's wait and see.

    Better for them to take their time if they need it rather than rush development.

    I was thrilled by the idea at first. Then I saw the elements of modern socio-political ideologies in this game. If you chose a historical scenario for your game, try to make it historical. I find it very unfortunate how contemporary ideologies try to change the popular view on history. The only adaequat representation of ancient Rome I ever found was in HBO's ROME. I would like to see stuff like that in game form.

    Eh, Rome is an excellent TV show (season 1 in particular, season 2 suffering due to it compressing too much of its envisioned plot in light of the cancellation), but it's certainly not a veridic representation of the society it portrays either.

    As to how close to historical fact a fictionalization of Roman society has to be in order for it to be labeled as 'adequate', it's up for debate. I'm going to wait for the game's release before passing my personal judgement, but I'm not too distressed from what I've seen so far.

    Well sure it's a fictional story they tell, but the whole environment, the cultural, architectonic, religious, habitualistic background was extremely elaborated and researched and they catched some the mental specifities of Roman life very well. At least it's the closest I've ever seen to what I've learned in my studies of ancient history.

    Do developers themselves, for real, enjoy these yellow piss filters hiding everything, and truly believe thats how dry areas or deserts supposed to look like?

    Oh, wow. You can't enlarge pictures directly on Twitter, because it puts a giant "Log in/Sign up" box right in the middle of the screen while also darkening the screen a bit and when you press the "X" button it kicks you back to the feed, which has smaller pictures.

    In Vikings was possible to do plenty of nasty shit. On the other hand, perhaps THQ Nordic installed some new standarts to the design, we'll see (hope not).

    Difference between character model and portraits is similar to Diablo3 vs. Diablo 2 Resurrected Hobos
