"you are the rule maker, the dictator, the mini- Stalin, Mao, Hitler, the emperor, generalissimo, the MAN. You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.

Not sure there's actually a game in there.  The manual is barely three pages long.

I've seen this game engine before. Years ago there was a modern unit sim that went under the name 'Talava', 'Tavala', or something like that. Then later it appeared again with WW2 units. It looked more like a training sim than a game.

I wish I could find a link to that first one but I cannot.  :(


It does look like the engine has been around. Requirements: Win 7, Pentium4, and at least 4 Gig of RAM:

Reminds me a little of a less point-to-point version of Panzer Doctrine (which is rather an interesting little game).
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.
