Greetings - I'm back
« on: November 15, 2020, 08:33:20 PM »
Just a shout out to everyone here as I've been away for a while due to work and family.  Man it feels like it's been ages.

Are Starfury, Gus and Brant still hanging around (Mazeltov!).  Is Ghostryder still comparing with Baldurs Gate 2 these days? I jest, it was my favorite as well.

Is there still an ongoing 'what are you playing now?' thread that I can contribute too? 

All the best in these crazy times.

Welcome back, and I dig the avatar  O0
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.

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.

Endfire!  Nice to see you back!  Starfury just dabbles.  Gus is up to his armpits in it.  And brant has moved along.  There's still a FRIDAY thread, if that's your cup of meat.

Welcome back, and I dig the avatar  O0
Many thanks and dig yours as well!  Always good to meet more BlackAdder fans.

Where have you been??
Hey Gus, hope you're doing well.  Just been really busy with work and family time. Prior to 2020, travelled as much as I could with the fam before my son started kindergarten (went to Spain, Portugal, Czechia, Hungary, Croatia, and China).  Work was keeping me busy as well as aviation simulation business has been a literal real roller coaster between 2017-2020 - I'm hoping things will pick up after this pandemic).  Post 2020, I'm just happy my kid can still go to school while taking precautions.  I've finally taken some time to build a new PC gaming rig, and keen to see what I've missed the last few years. 

Endfire!  Nice to see you back!  Starfury just dabbles.  Gus is up to his armpits in it.  And brant has moved along.  There's still a FRIDAY thread, if that's your cup of meat.
Hi MetalDog, good to hear from you again too thanks!  Brant has moved on, wow.  I really did miss a lot here.  I'll be sure to check FRIDAY out. 

Hey Endfire. Great to have you back Man.  :bd:

Hey there Sir Slash, another familiar pic! 

Shouts out to Martok as well.  I've been catching up with Star Trek Discovery and these new Klingons.
