Title: Hi and Hello
Post by: CapnKirk on May 11, 2021, 02:44:08 PM
Hello Everybody!

I've lurked around for awhile and figured it was time to pop in and say hi.

I've got 3 little ones, so my gaming time is limited, but I've been playing some Afghanistan '11, Rome Total War (the original) and some Decisive Campaigns Barbarossa.   

I have Lock n' Load Tactical Digital, and I keep meaning to try and dive into it.

Also own Panzer Corps 2 and Order of Battle, but I can't make up my mind which one to sink my teeth into.

I think I'm more of a collector than a player at this point  ::)

Anyway nice to meet everyone!

^Hello and welcome! I'm also playing Rome: Total War (remastered) at the moment as the Scipii. Got notified last night that the Julii have one the campaign but decided to continue anyway.

I love the Order of Battle games, especially the Eastern Front DLC campaigns and really enjoyed Panzer Corps 2...both are games that I will be playing more of.

Enjoy your stay here, Cap'n.

Ha!  One of us!

^Hello and welcome! I'm also playing Rome: Total War (remastered) at the moment as the Scipii. Got notified last night that the Julii have one the campaign but decided to continue anyway.
I'm actually playing as the Julii and currently fighting an alliance of Gauls and Germans.  The Gauls formed an alliance with the Germans mid-war, and the Germans sent down an army from the north.
How do you like the remaster?  Is it worth upgrading in your opinion?

Well now that you brought up the elephant in the room, someone is going to have to do it.   :-"

Thank you for the welcome everyone!

Hey Cap'n...the remaster is very good, it has recaptured the magic for me. If you  can get the 50% off discount it is a no brainer for 15.00. Only issue I have is occasional slow loading time at the very beginning of a session. Other than that it is solid technically, so far.

As the Scipii I have just wiped out Carthage and am about to wipe out Numidia. I got notification that the Julii won the campaign but I decided to continue anyway and I am still having fun. So I'll continue. Next campaign I think I will play as Numidia.

Don't let the Gauls and Germans bully you Cap'n!!

Haha there's nothing better than spending more time reading about a game then actually playing it.

The trouble with tribbles Cap'n Kirk, is that only good folk like us remember them!
Welcome to the fold. You are among an elite. Almost the last of the many seeking refuge in a tiny corner of the galaxy. Some remember forums. But many fold and turn to twitter, reddit, facebook and other more fleeting mediums!

If it's one thing we know how to do here is be friendly.  Then they'll be friendly.

Welcome. I am a Trek fan myself.

Thank you!

Yes Trek is a lot of fun.  TOS, TNG and DS9 are all favorites of mine.  Enterprise was alright, but I was just never able to get into voyager.
