Happy B'Day Jarhead. I shall have a green tea in your honour.

The games I shall play to celebrate will probably be:
- Mech5
- Steel Division 2
- War In the Pacific - dabbling after *Admiral's posts about TFA*
- Maybe some world in conflict which I discovered I owned.
- DAwn of War Soulstorm3 way multiplayer vs the insane AI. That crew is back.

Happy 93rd birthday man!

In your honor I will continue playing Assassin's Creed Origins, The Hidden Ones, where I have learned the hard way that I had not quite leveled up enough to take on this DLC. It has been a rough, but fun, go. Almost at Level 40 after getting killed 100 times.

Continued tinkering with Imperiums: Greek Wars.

Getting smacked around as the Vandals in Rome Total War - Remastered...I was hoping to be the one doing the smacking as them but it's not really working out. May try the Berbers next.

Happy B-Day!

I've become hooked once again on Shogun 2.  I think I may have to restart my Uesugi campaign.  I got too aggressive and provoked the wrath of the far more powerful Takeda clan who proceeded to march 3 large armies into my territory and take my capital. I have one army left, but I don't think I'm going to be able to get out of this one. :hide:

Happy Birthday JH. I wish I was 93 again. And know what I know now that is, which is....playing Skyrim drunk was way more fun than playing it sober ever was. That's pretty much all I can think of. OH...Playing. BG 2 Has captured me again, I'm lost in quests I never finished when I played it before, both times. After that, I'm gonna find a Dragon and pull his wings off.  :knuppel2:  Have a great weekend Grogs.

^I've played Skyrim more drunk than sober, and played it drunk more than any other game :)

Outside of PBEM and some playtesting I'm going to have to decide what to play in my limited time.  Got a WitE2 solo game started, a Japan '46 game started, just picked up Grand Tactician: Civil War, and the thread on Middle East War has me thinking of firing up a Middle East '67 game as well.

Let's see:

Distant Worlds Universe - Retreat UE mod. My problem is I do fine with the micromanaging then all of a sudden things get out of whack really fast- so back to the drawing board.  :uglystupid2: :buck2:

Shogun 2.... I haven't even finished a basic campaign.  :hide: So don't feel bad Anguille.

Nyqil. I caught whatever bug my 8 year old brought into the house.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, fellas.

Happy Birthday, big guy!

As always I'll be firing up Cold Waters.  I just downloaded the new Epic Mod 2.31 and will need to update and restart all my campaigns.  Lately I've been trying (unsuccessfully) to play through a campaign in a diesel boat.  I think it "might" be possible to be successful, but it will mean losing some missions as there are some things you just cannot do in a diesel boat. 

I'm really interested in trying Close Combat.  I haven't yet, but hope to pick up a couple of the older $3 titles and maybe give the series a try.  CC3 seems to be highly recommended.

No other firm plans at the moment.  Drunk Skyrim does sound pretty good, TBH.   :buck2:

Happy Birthday JH!

Right now I'm sucked into a new Battle Brothers campaign.  Some great medieval turn-based sandbox merc-ing.  I'm playing a campaign on Beginner since every game I've started in this so far has ended mostly in frustration of everyone dying within a few weeks.  It's actually not a terrible way to play -- the battles are still lethal and challenging, but your characters are a good bit more likely to be recovered when they go down instead of permadying.  I think the more rounds they spend down, the more likely they are to die.  However, in my last fight against brigands, a wildman I'd recruited named Alvar the Outcast got his head lopped clean off by a greatsword....  I don't think there's any coming back from that one.   :timeout:  :-\

CC3 was my most played back when it came out. I liked it better than the vaunted CC2. Primarily because of the units that turned up as re-enforcements along the timeline of the campaign. You got to customise the forces you took in and that was a lot of fun. I think I would want to go with Combat Mission cmx2 or steel division 2 if I was to play a tactical ww2 wargame these days though.

I've done some epic gaming on a good Nyquil high. At least it SEEMED epic at the time.  ::)

If you have any memories at all it means you didn't do Nyquil hard enough.

Managed to fight off 2 of the enemy armies in a massive siege battle while quelling 2 rebellions in another province.  Did I mention I expanded to quickly?  I might actually be able to pull this off.  I was able to swing 2 military alliances with enemies of the Takada to put pressure on them.

If you can play through your coming battles and auto-resolve very rarely, you can do it.

And look at those shots...for a 10 year old game those shots are pretty amazing.

I looked pretty good 10 years ago as well  ;D

Speaking of 10 years, those screens are only on the medium graphic settings as I have an ancient PC.

Happy birthday Jarhead !

Not much gaming so far.  Went to a funeral in the morning, got the Pfizer vaccine in the afternoon and watched my country win a game in the Euro soccer cup in the evening.

Maybe some Stellaris today.
