World of Warships for me and a note to myself to add Grand Tactician Civil War to my Steam wish/watch list.  Plus trying to decide what to use my Matrixgames anniversary (14 years I think) coupon on....

I probably won't get any further than a little Medieval TW 2: Stainless Steel as the Storming Normans.  :dreamer:

Dominions 5 Multiplayer for me.  Got a a few multiplayer games I'm in, and things are about to get spicy in a couple of them. 

Other than that, I hope to get a Crusader Kings 2 game rolling.  Listening to an audiobook on the Plantagenets has got me hankering for some good ole medieval dynastic drama!

Well daughter woke up sick this morning and though it could be the flu Docter was about 90% sure she has Covid-19.  That means I could have two weeks or better go play away.  Looks like I'll finally have time to dig into Imperator: Rome like I want and maybe get back to War In the West deeper.

Hope she gets well quickly!   :hug:

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.

That's a yay/boo if I ever heard one.  Yay you get game time.  Boo your daughter is sick.  Hope it's mild and short lived for her and none of y'all catch it.

@several previous re: RRHoF  Just call it the Music Hall of Fame.  Because everyone draws their own line on what defines, 'rock n roll,' and you will rarely talk someone off of theirs.  Music HoF stops all that nonsense and we can honor the performers who have provided the soundtrack for our lives.

Gaming will be less as I have a rare Saturday that I am required by work to work.  I will be home by 5 so it's not a total wash, but, Sunday will have a lot more errands crammed into it than the usual none.  The old standbys of Civ and MtG Arena are now joined by a gracious, and unexpected, gift of Pillars of Eternity.  Just made my character and cleared the very first encounter.  Going in for more as soon as I quit typing here.

+1 This. It took until 2013 before Rush was inducted, and that was richly deserved, and luckily the groundswell was intense because of the success of Clockwork Angels. and partly due to the film "Beyond the Lighted Stage."

Pillars of Eternity - Nice.

So, anyway as for me. I have been just playing a mix of Order of Battle WWII - I am now at Piatek over looking the Bzura river in 1939. Trying to hold on to what I managed to take in the previous scenario.   Crusader Kings II is "kind of" calling, thanks to Kings and Generals since they showing the world in the timelines 867 and 1066. I wish Paradox did that with CK II. Because you can just sit there and look at all the different characters and say, "Well...which one?"  I am glad they focused on just two timelines for CK III ( still thinking on getting it Sept 1st, but I'm sticking to my guns on waiting -possible Christmas or something) I have thought about treating myself to maybe Imperialism 1 and 2 on GOG.com, but we'll see.


nelmsm, I hope your daughter feels better soon. Be safe.

I had a big crush on Belinda Carlisle when i was younger.... :smitten:. Impressive how popular the GoGo's were.

I would like to play some Imperiums: Greek Wars, some Aggressors: ancient Rome and some Horizon.

...

So did I.  In fact there was this one girl I met in college that looked a lot like Belinda Carlisle.  I tried asking her out multiple times and got turned down everytime.  I took that as a sign that I would never be able to date the real Belinda Carlisle and moved on.   ;D
