Brand new song from the new Chesney Hawkes record is out today. Duet with Nik Kershaw (on a Nik Kershaw song).



Have a very busy weekend but i'll try to do the following:

- One mission in Conflict Desert Storm
- One mission in Stronghold Warlords (new Sun Tzu campaign will be released on the 28th of may so need to speed up).
- Continue my Rome campaign in Aggressors: Ancient Rome.
- Continue my Tachidi campaign in Master of Orion 3.
- Downloading the Alexander DLC for Imperiums in order to start testing it  8)

Have a good weekend.

Continuing on in a Rome: Total War Remastered campaign as the Scipii as well as some Age of Empires Definitive Edition games, and digitally fondling Imperiums: Greek Wars...haven't pulled the trigger there yet.

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes, even if it was for just one day?

I have it on good authority that Gus' shoes are responsible for breaking-up the Swedish Bikini Volleyball Team.  ^-^

   Alexander DLC sounds fun.

   I'm drifting into an East Front kind of thing.  I got the John Tiller Stalingrad '42 to prove it.  Working on a scenario where Rotminstrov (who led the 5th Guards Tank Army at Kursk) a few months earlier in his career, takes the 7th Tank Corps for a spin in the 5th Shock Army and has a successful role in stopping both pincers of Wintergewitter.  Maybe I'll get some screenshots if anything spectacular happens.

Iron Harvest - I really do enjoy the whacky units in this game. I kinda hope their will be a movie. The content seems good enough, but the factional nation premise probably makes it too divisive.
Ultimate Admiral: Age of Sail - The campaign in this is spectacular! I have now been posted to the Mediterranean with Napoleon reported as having been promoted to artillery officer! I had no idea the campaign would take me anywhere but the coast of the Americas! This game is an absolute blast. I have just captured a L'Ocean 1st rate!
Steel Division 2 - Still need to get used to all the changes and new divisions

Kinda thinking of returning Rome remastered. I am not sure the nostalgia is enough to make this game worth while. I am still dreaming of a rome3 that had ultra hard core realism and nice unit visuals. I have played a few test battles and that is it. In my opinion the rome engine does not look great with modern hardware. You know, shimmering sarrissa at a distance etc

I agree that even with a remastering the visuals of Rome TW Remastered cannot compete with current titles (even Rome 2). That said, the magic is back for me...I am having a ton of fun and have been losing sleep to my Scipii campaign. With mods, Rome TW Remastered will become a reborn classic and I am very much looking forward to playing Barbarian Invasion (one of my favorite games ever) and trying out the Alexander campaign.

Even though I was feeling slightly burned by not being able to get the discount (I found out how to do it too late), I still feel I am getting my money's worth. About 10 days after release and there are currently 125+ mods available.

Can you get a discount if you bought a hard copy of the original game?

Frequently you can activate a game on Steam by entering your hard copy code in the activate game tab.  I don't know if it will work with Rome 1.  You'll have to try it to find out.
