Looking for some new games.

Saw Cossacks at the used book store, is it any good?

I got Cossacks. I played it for a bit but felt that it was a poor cousin to Age of Empires. A case of something being hyped beyond what it actually delivered.

But don't go by what I say, I only give games a few hours before either writting em off as shite or playing them non stop for the next 6 months!

I played it a bit on Shakey's copy. It's more complicated than age of empires. I think I'd agree with BoltyBoy.

Too many resources, units, etc. Good concept and if you like really complicated RTS then it might be for you.

Thanks.

For $10 I guess I'll give it a whirl.

I quite liked it - well worth $10. It is an infinite resources type game though which may or may not be your cup of tea.

I'll sell you mine for $9.99.

Notice how I do that competitive cut-throat marketing ploy thing.

Hey Bolty! How about the shipping and handling?

I think my Cossacks is still in its shrink wrap...

Oh I see, you're competing against me now huh? Well time for a trade war!

$9.97 - hahaha beat that fly boy!

Small print: shipping + handling will incur an extra $35 for..err...time and labour required to put stamps on and stuff.

Not in the slightest, Bolty. If you get a good price, I'll sell mine as well. :)

I play it when I want to line up shit loads of troops and watch them massacred in comedy fashion.

You're bluffing. Nobody could offer it at such a competitive price!

Just because you can't beat it.
