Title: I got the FRIDAY in me!
Post by: Anguille on October 04, 2019, 02:42:02 AM
Sorry, second video from Kiki Dee in a row. It's been my music for the last two weeks...she was one of the biggest sweethearts in the 70's with an amazing voice :smitten:



Finally learning and playing a campaign in Fields of Glory: Empires with Carthage. Also some Dominus Galaxia and maybe some Interstellar Space genesis.

If time allows, i may start a new game with one of my current favs: Master of Orion CtS, Dawn of Andromeda or Oriental Empires (i finished a campaign of each last week with the Alkari (victory by points), the Ynan Commonwealth (alliance victory) and Liu Bei (defeat by points - second place)).

Nothing wrong with Kiki, something about her :)

Really at a loss to what to play, may just be a shut my eyes and point weekend :)

Atta boy, Martok!  Gus would be proud.  :bd:

My own game playing will consist of some FoG:E or Civ IV or both.

I am proud. Avenge my Bactrians, Martok! AVENGE ME.

Trying out Spellforce III and taking another stab at Vampyr, this time on Easy/Wuss setting, because last time the ‘Normal’ setting was way too difficult for me.

Flub up in pre-move utility turn on/turn offs has left us bereft of internet at the moment and I'm going nuts.  On the other hand, I get time to watch all the bootleg movies I picked up via buddies' drives when last deployed, so go me...?

Ugh.

After adding "I've got the Music in Me" to my iTunes library, I will be doing more BoC work, and a little FoG Empires, FoGII PBEM, where I'm having my head handed to me, and possibly starting a CMANO AAR.   I'm also thinking about picking up Wolfpack, as I need to scratch a submarine itch...

Hmmm probably a mix of the following

Fire Emblem (on Switch); Oxygen not Included, HoI4, and some Civ

Gus, just out of curiosity, have you played FoG Empires using one of the major factions?  I'm curious what you thought of the experience as opposed to taking one of the minor factions.

No Man's Sky, Ascension: Deck Building and Magic the Gathering Arena. With a side of Crying Suns.

Tripoli - not yet. To be honest in games like this I typically shy away from playing big empires, like the Seleucids, Egypt, Carthage or Rome.

Non-sequitor: I also have to add that I will be picking up Ultimate Admiral: Dreadnoughts after finding out the alpha is now accessible and playable!! Glorious!!

I put up Big Trouble in Little China and put out Pacific Tide.

Pacific Tide looks very intriguing.  I hope to knock out two complete games this week.

Several people should be practicing for the next Grogheads Fog:Emp mp game, which I'll be setting up to start next weekend! -- the idea is to make teams of two players, scattered in low-power easy-to-manage starting factions around the map. (i.e. the players choose those factions and then immediately team up in diplomacy.)

Thread details are here. (http://grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=23872.0) The British Isles, northwest Celts, and Caucus teams have been taken already, but several options still remain! Saba/Qats (southern Arabia); Eastern Europe (Goths, Bohemians, and/or Cherusciis); Central North Africa (Numidia and its brother nation); Spanish gates (Emporia and the Aquitani).

Meanwhile this weekend I'm chugging along as Saba in the first mp game; plus several other mp games ongoing (AoW3, Andean Abyss, Le Havre, Waterdeep, Istanbul); and still punching at DAWN OF WAR: SOULSTORM: ULTIMATE APOCALYPSE: THE HUNT BEGINS: VERSION 4 OR SOMETHING: NEW PATCH!  :D One of those games I always go back to, and I'm having a ball -- Lord Cyane's new update is very stable (or I'm being smarter about applying modifiers).

Heh, I'll try.  (Although quite frankly, I'll simply be happy if I manage to not collapse the first couple decades. :P )  While I chose the Bactrians for a few different reasons, I'll admit your experiences with them played a part.  :)

Bactrians are fascinating, in that they were the first to create the first statues of the Buddha, because of their knowledge of the Greek concept of the human form in art. Besides there's the framed Strategos Das Tacticles  ^-^ if you got FOG II, you can get his campaign.
