    Tactical Games

    Post  mcmicken on Thu Jan 29, 2009 12:21 pm

    I was going to make this an "Advance Wars Thread" but I thought I'd open it up a little to encourage discussion.

    Advance Wars was the first series I actually got into with turn based, tactical gaming. I remember getting the 1st one for the GBA and loving it(despite the happy orange and blue tanks...). Currently eating my way through Dark Conflict at the moment. Pretty cool considering it's taken a less happy, brightly coloured turn. Decent enough story thus far too.

    I just love the little moments in this type of game where you know you've outsmarted your opponent and you watch as they struggle to get back to their base but to no avail. It's one of those genuinely satisfying feelings in gaming Very Happy

    Yeah, no worries. I'm lending out games all over the place these days. Someone's got my PSP and Crisis Core, college mate's got De Blob, a mate down in Selkirk's wanting Super Mario Galaxy.

    And all I want is the Wii Zelda as far as I know.

    I'd completely forgotten about that...

    Finished a mission I was stuck on today on the bus. Was well chuffed. Very Happy

    But a few missions down the line I'm stuck again :P Ah well, a nice challenge never hurt anyone.
