I’ve dived back into Horizon zero dawn so will continue with that playthrough.

Beyond that depends how I feel, maybe some Oxygen Not Included, Factorio, or Satifactory and I might try continue learning Rome Imperitors and Dominions 5

I’ve been getting reacquainted with Elite Dangerous in VR in preparation for Odyssey later this year. I absolutely love the VR experience in space, but must admit that the surface driving in the SRV makes me a little nauseous.  The first VR game to have that effect on me in a long time.

Probably some DCS and some more Cyberpunk 2077. Over 60 hours and still have not beaten the main story...I’ve been playing a little less over the last several days.

First weekend I've had off in over a month.  (Well, partial weekend anyway.  I get Saturday afternoon and Sunday off).  Gonna play a few hands of Kards to get my daily grind in.  I've made it to General rank with my British deck but I'm having the most fun with my combined Japanese and German deck.  It's utter chaos but when I pull the right cards, it's murder.  I'll also do my daily grind in War Thunder naval battles.  I've got my first battleship for the Royal Navy but I actually prefer my cruisers (I really like the little Vospers speedboats best but I need the points so I gotta play the big boys)

Going to play some sort of board game on Sunday with the one guest I'm allowed over (yes, the authoritarian zealots controlling my little corner of hell limit us to one person from outside the house being allowed to visit.  That's not one person at a time.  It's one person period.  Been like this for coming up on 3 months.)   I'm trying to decide which game to play.  Right now, we're looking at Imperial Struggle, 2nd World War at Sea: Arctic Convoy, Lock N. Load Tactical: Heroes of the________ (probably Pacific or Red Star), or Paths of Glory.

Also plan on getting some trigger time with the new toy.

I'm finishing up the 2nd Commie order of battle so I can have a core force for the final Soviet Order of Battle.

As always: where does the week go?

If at all possible, I'm still tankin' via World of Tanks - lucked out and got the 4 gift tanks from loot boxes and one hundred plus days of premium time, so time to seriously apply myself to completing at least one line in my lifetime (started playing in '11 and have just puttered around with things).

Take care, folks!

Oh...and maybe some Call to Arms too. The Russian campaign was recently released and I still need to catch up on the German campaign, as well.

I bought Call to Arms over the sale.  I got the deluxe version.  Why can't I play as the Russians or Germans in conquest mode? 

Also did you have to do anything special to unlock the Russian or German campaigns?  What version of Call To Arms do you have?  (Base, deluxe, or ultimate?)

Unfortunately, you need to have the "Ultimate" version to access that content. The way they released the various versions was pretty screwy and unclear. Rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, but it is a really fantastic game.

Started playing Red Dead Online on PC the last few days.  So much of the content was clearly phoned in by Rockstar, it's actually kind of embarrassing.  Don't know how much longer I'll stick with it.

Man alive, Jarhead.  That gun doesn't even look real; looks like something out of Star Wars!

I've been some serious consideration to trying to really learn Hearts of Iron 3.  I have the complete version from years ago and have never really even tried to learn the system.  I didn't buy IV since I haven't even touched the versions of the game I already have.

It's too early to commit to anything else at the moment.

Rome 2 with DEI if it's quiet around these parts. I'll be taking Rome's new fleet out for a spin, here's what they look like ready for action. Have a great weekend Grogs.  \m/

In terms of non-gaming Fridaying, I picked up a jaw harp recently and have been enjoying strumming on it.  Once you get the technique down it's surprisingly easy to play any sort of sing-a-long song.  I haven't nearly mastered it like this guy playing Turkey in the Straw (about 1:00 in), but I can at least strum along to something simple like Rule Britannia on YouTube.   :buck2:

I feared that that was the case.  Well I have the Ultimate upgrade pack on my wishlist for when it goes on sale next time.  I agree this is a fun game and very well put together.  It's just unfortunate, and I'm saying this selfishly I admit, that I got fooled into buying the basic version then dumping money into the deluxe version when really I should have just bought the ultimate version right off the bat.

When I'm not posting on the R&P board, I plan on getting my Wizards and Warlords game to a good pausing point and winning my first Shadow Empires game.  Next time, I think I need to play with some actual opponents on the board, rather than just a bunch of random minor factions that I wanted to bulldoze the first time I played!   ;D

Alternately, I may get one shard of Eador: New Horizons in, but I think I'll end up doing SE.

If you ever win Shadow Empire officially - please take a screenshot (not easy - there is no internal mechanism) and post it.  Everyone else will have a drink to honor your accomplishment.

I will read about the games , instead of playing them , as has been my, admittedly unhealthy, habit for the past (generously) 5 Years.
Or , if I am lucky , I will expand on my love/hate relationship with GG War in the West.
Something tells me, though , that I will sleep on the sofa tonight, again
