    When I find the time, I’m playing Tropico 4. Never finished the campaign the first time around. Looking forward to the updated version to be released around the holidays. I’ve always enjoyed these kinds of builder-sims with lots of economic guns-or-butter decisions, and strategic placement of resources.Report

    The Nemesis system is pretty much the one unique part of Shadows of Mordor, and I rather hope other games might pick it up — or at least adapt the basic concept into whatever way fits their game.

    It’s a clever idea, invests the player into the game in a new way.Report

      I never played it, but I recall reading some players (maybe commenters on io9?) that said the Nemesis system was a little buggy in the game. The players still really liked it conceptually (and some conceded it was possible that maybe they were mistaken and it was user error not bug); but there were claims that occasionally the system was “resurrecting” nemeses whom the players were sure they had killed, sometimes multiple times.

      Also, I didn’t need this in my head this morning (and boy, they just don’t make videos like this anymore):
