Aggro Me: Mount and Blade
Mount and Blade
I've talked about Mount and Blade before so I thought I'd mention that version 0.950 has been released.
I still wouldn't call it polished and I'm not crazy about the graphics but the mounted combat is incredibly satisfying. I even love the sword and shield battles on foot - crazy fun.
The fact that the version number is so close to 1.0 makes me think that time is running out to grab this game for a mere 25 bucks. But check out the demo and see what you think.
I recommend starting out by doing tournament after tournament. It's a good way to gain some cash and renown and, more importantly, you really get the hang of the combat.
Trading seems a bit too easy and you can get pretty invincible with the right gear relatively quickly. But I find myself returning to this game quite a bit.
Did I mention that Mount and Blade is very mod-friendly? There are some insane mods already and I bet they only get better.
