The FRIDAY Gritty
« on: January 31, 2020, 04:32:22 AM »


Sorry, fellas. I watch this video periodically. That guy in the front is just so damn good and enjoyable to watch. He blows everyone else away with style.

In any event...might try to get back into Space Engineers this weekend. Maybe some old Deus Ex stuff since Iím in a cyberpunk mood. I also ordered a Logitech heavy equipment side panel to try with IL2 Tank Crew. Not really sure what else.

Enjoy.

 :o whatever works

Continuing my Shadow Tactics campaign, just began the third mission (out of thirteen). Very good game - makes me really use the old brain stem.

Would also like to finally start my Fall of the Samurai campaign and also fiddle around with Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnaught, but time is limited :/

I love dancing and good dancers (Gene Kelly, Fred Astair)! He's impressive indeed!

I hope to finish my Let's play with Horizon (will be episode 15). Uploaded part 14 yesterday.



Would like to continue my campaign of Civilization's Beyond Earth (and finish?)

When I come to this thread and including now while I reply Chrome detects a .swf file and alerts me to discard it as harmful.  Just a heads up.   ;)

Posting at work where we have good anti-virus software.

I have a warning in Firefox about that same file but you can ignore the alert.

The reason of the warning is that in the post of Anguille he included a wrong youtube link  8).

Should be : https://youtu.be/6b_dLKxr9Us   (generated by the share button)




For me it will be Pillars of Eternity 2 or Divinity Original Sin 2.

No worries.   8)

Horizon looks like a good game.  I will have to check this out as I know almost nothing about it.

Wait. What? I loved FoF and had wished they would make another one. WCS had a very promising future in my opinion but seriously dropped the ball with their representation of Conflict of Heroes and then totally missing the mark with their Brother Against Brother. Why they chose to do 3-D for CoH I'll never understand. A fan made his own program and it looked far superior to the one released. Although hi-res maps were eventually released, I think the damage had already begun. The main programmers attitude didn't help the situation although their rep, Gil, is a delightful dude.

Moreb - I also wished they would have made a FoF2. There is something about having the strategic and tactical layer with FoF that keeps me coming back to it much like Crown of Glory.

I was very excited when they introduced the Brother vs. Brother game and thought they had planned to release several versions covering battles that did not get that much attention but I don't know what happened.

Yea, the 3D firstly was poorly done, and also not needed. I love those hi-res maps though. I picked up FOF not to long ago, haven't put much time into it yet. Brother vs Brother i've had for less time and have played a bit of and i like it, it plays pretty well and the maps look good IMHO.

That Conflict of Heroes app looks awesome!  It's as if you have the actual cardboard game on your table.

I too wish they did or will do a FoF2.
