Just had our third attempt at a family summer vacation cancelled today.

The first vacation was cancelled after my daughter tested COVID positive.

The second vacation was cancelled after my father-in-law was hospitalized for acute renal failure...and

The third vacation was just cancelled because our vacation spot in presently underwater and is located in an area under a declaration of emergency.

...so, I guess it will be DCS, Highfleet, maybe some Carrier Command.

Everyone enjoy.

Shit JH that really is...terrible. Sorry.

Great pick on music, though, nice Tripoli.

My Byzantine Expedition mod for Attila: Total War began crapping the bed and crashing out a couple of days ago so I will be starting a new Attila: Total War campaign with the Radious overhaul and units mods as the Emirate of Cordoba. Also will be playing a couple of Dark Age themed Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition campaigns.

Waiting in the wings as summer turns to fall is a stockpile of dark fantasy and horror game...looking forward to finally attempting Dark Souls III.

Playing "Dawn of Man".....got it cheap during one of the past Steam sales, finally getting around to it.  A lot of fun so far.

Ps.  Awesome music pick Trip...!

New iron maiden album seems to be on youtube in itís entirety, so might listen to that while playing.

Tank Crew is 66% off as well. Thinking of loading that up again.

Been watching Angry Birdís commentary of steel division 2 competitive matches so want to give that a go. However I am sick of the way the AI has perfect memory among other things and so might play some 10v10 online.

Other than that, star citizen, titanfall2 which seems to be working and world of warships. Which I have been trying the subs in.

Here down under. Lockdown has forced the post to shut down ecommerce for 3 days and curfews are in place in our largest city. 1400 cases a day now so I think we will be let out as soon as enough peeps are vaccinated. Which is happening reasonably fast now.

Another week down!

My ADD acted up again, so tossed out the prior games and loaded up World of Tanks / World of Warships, SCUM, 7 Days  to Die, and as a lark (and no idea at what point I got this game) TheHunter Classic.  Gonna blast virtual bambi all to hell.

p.s. Hunter game is poop to me, so no HD space for you!

On a single malt whisky discovery journey at the moment which I am finding is a ideal accompaniment  to some mellow gaming.

I am doing unusually well in my latest Dominions 5 playthrough as Middle Age Cstis but as so often happens I have now got distracted by the release of Pathfinder: War of the Righteous so tonight I will be firing up Pathfinder : Kingmaker that I bounced off first time round to see if that is another rabbit hole to disappear down :)

Now...where is my  Port Charlotte Islay Malt.....

Islay is the right way.  Laphroaig man myself, or maybe Ardbeg...or Lagavulin.  Choices choices...

To each their own but Laphroaig is like eating dirt (peat) to me, obviously it is an acquired taste  :)

Anyway back to gaming. Intention was (possibly still is) for a bit on Pax Nova, following on from I think Anguiles post from a few weeks back I picked it up in the sale and have now added the expansion. However just had the update of Fallen Enchantress 3.0 drop on Steam so very tempted to fire this one up again. Other than those I'll probably go for a bit of Tigers on the Hunt or Valour & Victory as a change of pace.

Laphroiag is my only Scotch. Will try the new Fallen Enchantress patch soon.

Tough break JH.  :pullhair:   WitE: The Road to Kiev Scenario is in full swing and damned addicting to boot for my weekend moments of tranquility which will be infrequent as this'll be a, 'Grand Kids' weekend around here. I've got extra Bourbon on hand for coping. And there's football....finally.  <:-)  Have a great one Grogs!
