That's good news. Sold my PS3 about a month ago.

I only bought my Xbox 360 controller recently, so it's staying with me until it's broken. Not that I use it heavily anyway...

Apparently they still have a few collectors' editions left... But $180 is a bit too steep for a game.

I hope there's a Darth mod for rome 2, I heard the modder rage quit the total war scene for some reason :(DefconRave

CA wasn't providing them with enough tools to mod, unfortunate, but at least the base game looks far better than the original Rome this time around.

I just got caught up with all of the recent videos they have released for this game, and daresay, I am really excited. Out of all of the Total War games, it was Rome that captured my imagination the most - I had studied Latin in high school and have read many of the first-hand sources from the era - Caesar's "Commentarii de Bello Gallico", Livy's "Ab Urbe Condita", etc. 

I first became acquainted with the Total War series when they released this trailer for Rome: Total War back during E3 2004:

I bought Medieval initially, loved it, and then I bought Rome when it came out nine years ago... I still play it to this day, on occasion, and sometimes with my favorite mods, like Rome: Total Realism, and Europa Barbaroum. Rarely do I still play video games from that era, it just demonstrates how rare video games about history have become. 

I've pre-ordered a Steam key on Green Man Gaming, and I look forward to playing September 3rd!

Just a poll. I was at a LAN party earlier today and it seemed like everyone was using a Razer mechanical keyboard. 

I personally use a Logitech K800 (a wireless keyboard with "pillow shaped" keys) and a G700 as a mouse (love the multitude of buttons on that thing). 

You guys?

At least 100 games. And this isn't even counting the games that I want to play again. 

I'll finish it all... eventually.

Rome. Followed by the original Medieval, then Medieval II. 

Empire, Napoleon, and Shogun 2 are okay... Not nearly as good as the ones I've mentioned though.
