    its more of a sandbox game i suppose rather than one with a true narrative. the "goal" is to build a dynasty, but really the goal is whatever you want it to be- become king, gain independence, survive as a count, make the smartest ruler possible, or whatever.

    Pathfinder: Kingmaker was really good if you turned it onto turn based from the default pause and play. Half party based DnD 3.5ed/ half kingdom building/management. Very good unique fantasy storyline.

    That does look awesome and like one I need to try. Really high production values for an indie game.

    I need to build a PC gaming box at some point. I can boot camp to Windows, but it's kind of a pain in the ass to have to close all of my work applications so I end up only playing Steam games that have a Mac version.

    Fuck building a box anytime soon. 2 year old mediocre GPU's for $1000 right now. Its not going to get better either anytime soon. They just had to shutter another factory for lockdowns.

    Are the prices jacked up after you wait? Hell I see 2060's selling for 1k. RTX 2060's launched in January of 2019 for 300-400$.

    you can also guesstimate queue time per card from this

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NrR71ipaJktCzT1pWj9FWxNHGWAbcxMorvRvEPaPh48/edit

    it looks like some 3080 models are actually pretty well caught up, but pretty much everything else is a 6+ month wait

    I loved them both, but probably would give Dragonfall the edge. If you like one you'll like the other.
