If you like basketball, free game this week is NBA2k1...not too shabby for free.

How is the port for this year's game?  I recall they're usually terrible.

I have never had any issues with the port to PC...always play on PC.

If you go by the Steam reviews, its "mostly negative", but WTH, its free.

I picked this up over the weekend, a quality game. Enjoy it a lot with some novel gameplay. One has 2 tech trees to research one deal with moral decisions. Do you make use of child labour vs allow them education etc..

Another concept is giant automations (Think War of the worlds) that will replace the human labour in a building.

It also has an exploration element with some decision choices to make.

Graphics is great, and one can use the fast fwd button, without getting bogged down in micromanagement.

Enjoy the concept of playing in the polar environment, the ongoing issue of keeping your population warm to ensure they are less susceptible to ill health....but then again if you do decide to make the moral choice of amputations to save lives you can replace it with bionic limbs if you choose...     :)

Mother Gunship is also free this week, which is a pretty cool game too.

Epic has sunk $500M into the Epic Games Store, doesn't expect to make a profit until 2027

It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


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.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

I want to get my mind off COVID and Afghanistan, so I'm thinking about Old World, which is available only on Epic. I have yet to download the Epic client, but if I were to do that, it would be for Old World. Anyone playing it?

I have it, but only lightly dabbled early on when it was first offered for early access. It did not grab me at the time and I uninstalled it until further development. I'm not suggesting that you take a pass, but for me, it didn't grab a hold. YMMV.
