I need some help here. I'm looking at two games, Command: Modern Operations (C:MO) $55.99 w/Tacview $94.48 or Age of Wonders Planetfall (AoWP) $12.49. I'm only going to get one of them and, financially, AoWP is a no-brainer but... I've got a million and one 4X games and do I really need/want another? On the other hand, C:MO looks like an incredible gaming accomplishment that is monstrously intriguing but it also looks like it will take me several months to become even barely competent at it. I'm concerned about my sticktoitivness (good word, eh?) and, on top of that, I wonder about Tacview. It seems that Tacview is almost a required element to aid in learning but we're talking about almost $100 and for a game that's... that's... I don't know, it just seems like a hell of a lot of money for a game.

Comments? Suggestion? Thoughts?

CMO would be my choice. Tutorials will get you up to speed and you can start with the smaller scenarios to start getting the hang of managing a battle. I don't have the Tacview and I think you will be able to get by without it. You can always add it later.

Motion sickness sounds like it could be a FOV issue, and CoD games are historically pretty bad about having a locked default FOV that's super low.
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.

Not much for me.  I grabbed Chains of War and Spratley Spat for CMO and some DLC for Strange Brigade.

  I got CMO.  Looks pretty interesting.

Sigh - I decided to fold.

EU IV has an interesting mod called Anbennar which is a total conversion mod - So I only needed Conquest of Paradise for the mod.

So that completes the EU IV:  Imperial Bundle. DONE.
