« on: September 22, 2020, 11:20:55 AM »
I got this in my email today.

Unity of Command II is about to have a DLC - Blitzkrieg. From Poland to Crete 1939-1941.

SQUEEE!

--eeeak. The, uh, sound of a tank chassis bouncing along.  :smitten:
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

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.

I liked Unity of Command, but Unity of Command II is even better.

One of the things I liked about UoC was that the AI was capable of agressive and devastating chess-like offensive moves. 

My only criticism of the system was that it sometimes felt a little too chess-like.

UoC II still has aggressive AI that can launch a nasty counter-attack if you aren't paying attention, but it feels more like a wargame (and less like a puzzle) that the original UoC.
Every generation gets the Greeks and Romans it deserves.


History is a bad joke played by the living on the dead.

This is giving me chills

France was hard. I mean, rage-quit hard.

When I went to the forums to complain about it, I was told that the the in-game constraints were made to mirror the real life challenges...it made sense.

I cannot imagine how hard this one will be.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial series on YouTube for this game? The one I found came out just after release and the creator seemed to know barely more than I did.
