Congrats on the new job al. I never began a new job without worrying myself silly that I was making a big mistake. Then after a couple of weeks, I wondered why the hell I waited so long to switch. I always hated being the, 'New Guy'.

Yeah, I'm still in the first phase of that process.   :buck2:

Thanks!
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.

Will be playing a bit of Bomber Command - grim subject matter (yes, you really want that firestorm) but well implemented in the game.

Congrats al.

I forgot all about Old World until reviews started popping up for it, and they are very good. But Epic is also a no go for me too. I can wait.

After having finally had a total party wipe in the third major Campaign of Wyldermyth I decided  as a total change to re install and play Field of Glory Empires which I haven't played in a very long time and found some great diplomatic improvements  have been made with regard to clauses that can be proposed or received around peace agreements,  diplomatic co operation  etc.

I t is a hugely enjoyable game and so far my Dacians are doing pretty well and I have just started playing out the climactic battle in my war against the Lysymachids using the FoG2 battle engine.

Always nice to gi back to a favourite game from the past and finding it  retains its attraction.

Almost forgot...Creeper World 4. This is some seriously addictive shit.

Got this a couple of weeks back. Have only had time to do two levels, but am seriously impressed with the game design.
