Can't say I agree with their politics, but man those fellas can really play. Saw Tom Morello in concert once with his band Street Sweeper Social Club. They opened for NIN and Jane's Addiction. Was one hell of a show.

Anyway, probably a mix of games for me this weekend.  Maybe some Star Citizen PTU 3.10, DCS, some testing of the new patches for Combat Mission titles, and who knows what else...

Everybody enjoy.

I was just coming to post that I maybe shouldn't have used this song.  Had it stuck in my head this morning.

I agree with you JH, awesome band and I wasn't trying to make a political statement here.

If you want me to change it, just let me know.

Iím officially on vacation so the world is my oyster for games.

Looking to get some cardboard action going with my kids.

From the electronic standpoint continuing my Factorio run, some Satisfactory, maybe some Witcher 3/ AC odyssey. Might break down and pick up Ghosts of Tsushima too.
Insert witty comment here.

Love the Rage, also don't agree with their politics.

That said - Order of Battle Morning Sun has consumed my brain. I have been staying up 'til the wee hours of the morning - up to the fifth installment of the 11 in Morning Sun (Japanese invasion of China, late 1930s).

Also dabbling in Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China, mainly in dogfighting missions trying out different planes. Fun but quirky.

Also staring hesitantly at the icons for Outlast and Outlast 2 on my desktop. They beckon but I am afraid.

Tiller things sound good on top of a World of Warships and HLL weekend.

Well, it is progessing and he works a lot on it. But i still find bugs. The game is playable and i do have fun with it but i would guess that bug fixing will still take somes weeks-months. If he keeps working on it like he's been doing the past few months, i am optimistic.

Have a great weekend Grogs!

Finally!  Someone who gets it!  FRIDAY in the title should ALWAYS replace a two syllable word!!!!  And Rage is boss!

Gaming will consist of Civ IV BtS mp, maybe continue my M2TW campaign as the Turks, and some dueling in the Arena.

More Friday metal!   \m/

I've been deep in a Far Cry 2 binge lately.  It holds up surprisingly well despite its flaws, and with a realism mod it has a pretty intense knife's-edge survivalist feel to it.  The malaria mechanic can kiss my ass, though.

Aside from that, mostly juggling Dominions 5 online games plus offline expansion testing.  Deeply regretting EA Tien Chi with a dormant SC god in my latest online game.   #:-)

Oh, I picked up Outer Wilds and it's a lovely little space exploration game.  Highly recommended for people who liked Subnautica, but be warned there's no base building or resource gathering, but some limited character progression.

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.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

Oh man!  I didn't think I'd ever see any Rage on this thread... their cover of Tom Joad is one of the best...

More Dominions 5 Multiplayer for me... strangely enough, I've also been drawn  back to the the 1995 DOS game Machiavelli, the Merchant Prince.  Nobody has ever really done an honest remake of it, although the Patrician and Port Royale series have a little of the flavor.  The game is as good as I remembered at as a teenager.

Other than that, I've slapped Linux on my CPU and am still getting used to it.  I'm liking it though.

Spent all week in the heat out of town, and so, get to play Ceiling Light & Fan Home Installation 2020 as a reward.  Yaaaaay. :(
