Guess what's on sale?

Mount & Blade, that's what.

I wouldn't bother getting the collection and recommend getting just Warband instead. Vanilla is a bit lacking, and With Fire and Sword isn't that great in my view.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/48700/

It's a very fun game; hard to pin down the genre, it's an RPG/grand strategy with a bit of RTS thrown in. Very much worth a purchase imo.

You can get the collection for £7.50 or just Warband for £3.75.

There's a new M&B game due in the future.

I played the original and I was irritated by the amount of wasted potential. They spent a lot of time crafting city and town environments and then didn't use them for anything, at least nothing you couldn't do from a menu.

Aye the vanilla game is pretty crap compared to Warband. I honestly can't think of a single reason to play it.

But does Warband make good on the RPG and adventure elements that were missing from the original?

I think so. It's not a perfect game but it's very unique and innovative in its RPG, strategic and combat mechanics, definitely worth three fifty.

There are loads of great mods for Warband, it's a game well worth getting. At the moment I'm playing a mod called Brytenwalda, which lets you play in the dark age british isles after the germanic tribes had invaded. Incredibly well researched and very fun.

I've been playing Mount and Blade ever since I bought the beta in 2005. WFAS is great if you're a fan of blackpowder arms and Eastern European history, and the vanilla game is still worth buying for the amazing mods alone:

Star Wars Conquest
1866
Europe 1805 II

Europe 1805 is especially worth your time. You can sign up as an officer in the various armies of Europe, advance in rank and prestige, have statues erected in your honour, buy/rent out property, and manage towns and businesses in a more in-depth manner. Pic related, muh statue in Hannover.

Runs fine, just has to be on low settings. Incidentally I managed to track down a familiar-looking certified tournament master.

The RPG elements are mostly tacked on, they aren't very good at all, though I've been playing it for years and still get most of my kicks from riding around on horseback cutting down swathes of infantry.
The Clash of Kings and Brytenwalda mods are most excellent.

Definitely worth the money. I don't think I've played a game that I had so much fun with since GTA San Andreas.

I wish somebody would throw a ton of money at the devs. It would be great to see what they could do with the concept if they had any sort of budget.

I've got good news for you.

Also everyone who's new to game, make sure you're 'delivering couched lance damage' instead of manually using the left mouse button to lance - I actually played the game for months lancing manually until I realised you could deliver triple damage by couching.

You're probably just a bit dim then. Surely that's the most natural way to use a bloody lance?

I meant in the game, I know how lances were used historically. I might have tried couched lancing when I first played the game and just wasn't co-ordinating right.

What I did still worked - and it's still effective, especially when stabbing lots of archers quickly, it's just not as good for dealing maximum damage on individual targets.

Yeah I had the same thing, was holding the attack button when using a lance which still does nice damage at a charge but when you randomly see that red "You have delivered couched lance damage" and you kill a knight in heavy plate armour, in one blow.
It's like "woah"

Some screenshots from Bannerlord. Seems like the graphics have taken a pretty big leap forward (they're almost on par with other games released around the time of M&B 1!).

M&B was never pitched at people with the best PCs. It's a Turkish game published by Paradox. This is more important when you're someone like me who only has a crap laptop and plays Warband on DirectX 7.

Another developer that doesn't bother his arse to finish his games, sadly. They are always half done and clear signs throughout where he's just said "fuck it" and decided to take money for the POS.

It's a game that works and is fun to play. What do you care if it has some arbitrary seal of "Completed" stuck on it? They're intended to be almost entirely open-ended anyway. It's not as though all "completed" games don't still have unresolved bugs even a decade after release.
Some gaming experiences are even improved by the process. When minecraft was fresh it was really enjoyable being able to look forward to updates and having time to experiment with them before even more stuff was added.

I was talking to the guy long, long before the first one came out as public betas. I know what the game was promised to be to the early adopters and why it ended up with broken and unfinished quests and content and then a series of cheap and shameless cash in pay-for mods to milk it.

When he spunked the budget on motion capture instead of finishing the fucking game content, quests, dialogues, etc. it was clear it was heading for the shitter. The same shitter that indie games were meant to avoid, sadly.

It's not that clear to me, or the other people in this thread who seem to have enjoyed it, or the majority of critics who've reviewed it etc. The games haven't been polished compared to £50 retail releases obviously, but that certainly doesn't make them bad.
