Campaign Series Vietnam. Such a great game and I'm learning quite a bit about the conflict as well.

I recently picked up The Hunter: Call of the Wild just to see what it's all about.  I shortly after bought all the DLC.   :-[

Great effing game!  Really takes me back to the old days of Deer Hunter and Carnivores (minus the dinos unfortunately).  Excellent vibe and atmosphere, and the graphics are incredible.  I practically enjoy just sitting around and drinking beers next to a lake with my rifle as much as I would in real life, with the added bonus that negligent discharges are no biggie  \m/

(Obligatory disclaimer that I would never mix alcohol with real-life firearms!)

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Ran into major difficulty with my Shadow Empire game.  Worker happiness is rock bottom affecting my logistics, production, and military forces.  I just can't seem to get these people happy so I started slaughtering them with the forced relocation cards.  I really don't see how I'm going to get out of this crippling slump.  Thankfully no major powers are near enough to me to attack me.

I put a lot of time into Liberty or Death and P.T.O. 1.  Can't believe how addicting these games are despite being over 19 or so years old.

It can be brutal. Suggestions -  raise worker pay to six or seven, build hospitals, universities, barracks, etc., create casinos, scenic views or other mood altering private/regional things via cards, check your governor for good/bad traits such as corruption and charisma, station more troops in the city.

Right, thanks.  I forgot about hospitals, universities, etc.  Unfortunately I haven't unlocked that tech yet and probably have zero prospects to unlock them.  Everything is just down the drain.  All I can do is either continue slaughtering the people or start a new game. 

I admit I am rusty on Shadow Empire but it's slowly starting to come back to me.  Boy I forgot how critical those first few turns are for the rest of the game.
