^ KF 2 is a modern classic.  Awesome game and the graphics are incredible with the Nvidia special effects.  May have to reinstall this one now that I'm thinking about it...

Runs better on my "newer," machine than KF1 does, and the gore!  Whoa!  Loves it!

Never heard it before but love the song Jarhead, 80's were my school/student days  :)

P.S. to that which of you (probably years ago) did a Friday thread with Die Antwoord? That was a new discovery for me that I probably could only have got from Grogheads.

Any way back to games, for me same again as last week; Tigers on the Hunt (good for a short scenario), Interstellar Space Genesis (looks like it could be a classic 4X) and Shadow Empire (still reading the manual).

I am sorry. But I must listen to Iron Maiden's new song that came out yesterday instead. No disrespect intended.  :)

I actually only recently discovered it a few days ago too on the First Wave station on Sirius/XM. Not sure how I missed it either, but its fantastic.

Grand Tactician: American Civil War...the recent update patch has greatly improved the flow of the game, enjoying it much more now.
Regarding JH's music choice...I'm an old dude and this is just further cements my personal belief that the 80's was music's lost decade.  ;) :o 8) ::) #:-)

Its not lost - I've got most of it  :)
Alas not playing anything this weekend - great weather demands outdoor food & drink related activity.

Lost classic for sure...

So lost I never found it before !

I was in the mood this week for a space opera so I started playing Mass Effect Legendary and I might spend some more time with it this weekend.


But this is also on my mind : https://apnews.com/article/europe-environment-and-nature-germany-floods-44498a9899e1a75929f8de9e3df07874 / https://apnews.com/article/europe-health-environment-and-nature-floods-9796ab4c2458604ff15203ef630b43f6
https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/floods-germany-claim-81-victims-more-than-1000-missing-2021-07-16/

Never in my lifetime have I seen something like this in this region.  Hundreds of lives might be lost in Belgium, Germany & the Netherlands.
I was lucky enough to live 50 K outside the area that was hit.

I'm glad you are okay, Peter.  I understand the death toll is 100+ now?

I'm afraid Germany alone has over 130 casualties with many still missing.

The depression causing the rain didn't move for 3 days so the areas that were hit hardest endured 3 full days of heavy rain.

I know there are regions on the planet (e.g. hurricanes and tornado's in the US) who have been hit harder in the past but something like this just doesn't happen over here.
No one alive can remember such an event so the people and the infrastructure just weren't prepared.

Cool song but must admit i don't recall having heard it before.

Had my second shot of covid vaccine on thursday so i was very tired on friday...

Not sure what i am going to play this weekend though...we'll see. Maybe a little of Pax Nova with the new dlc.

My thoughts are with everyone touched by the events in Germany, Holland and Belgium. The situation is critical in Switzerland but without the tragic consequences we're seing in the North.

And only passing coverage in our News Media of the flooding. Here's hoping the weather gets better and the death toll stays low. Fingers crossed.
