Nuts! 4th Edition – Pzrjager Goes on Patrol!

nuts

Today I’ll be doing a tank patrol as the Americans in Normandy using NUTS! 4th Edition and Tabletop Simulator. I’ll be using the rules for solo gaming.

Setup

I have a platoon of three M4 75mm Shermans, each with a tank commander (TC) Rep of 5, and the gunner, loader, driver, and bow gunner with Reps of 4. Rep represents things like skill, experience, and training and will determine how well our crews fight, drive, and react to certain situations. I won’t be playing with any “Star” rules, which give your “main character” many opportunities to escape damage or death.

To keep things simple all enemies will be a Panzer IV F1 platoon. Their TC will have a Rep of 4 and the rest of their crew will have a Rep of 3.

What’s Gus Playing? Wolfenstein 2 – New Colossus!

I don’t play nearly enough shooters, or ‘blockbuster’ games.  I am at the age now where the phrase ‘blockbuster’ just turns me off – I guess I’m jaded.

That said, I could not help get wound up in the hype surrounding The New Colossus. And you know what? The damned game delivered. Why it has ‘mixed’ reviews on Steam is beyond me.  I don’t even care.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Review!

deadfire playerexperience 2560x1440

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is the sequel to the Pillars of Eternity Computer Role Playing Game (RPG).  This review is based on 70 hours of play on medium difficulty.  My characters are now 18th level and I’m approaching the end game.  I purchased the game in December during the Steam Holiday sale without buying additional content.  I’ve also played Pillars of Eternity 1 to completion.

In Pillars of Eternity 2 (Pillars 2) your character wakes up from a coma on a ship.  In Pillars 1, the dungeons below your keep had a massive human statue made of adra.  The god Eothas animated the statue, destroyed your keep, killed most of your friends and servants, stole part of your soul, and marched off to the Deadfire Islands.  You are even more of a plaything of the gods as they order you to find out what Eothas is up to and stop him if necessary.  Nothing comes easy for a Watcher (someone who can see souls and talk to dead people).

What’s Gus Playing?: Iron Harvest 1920+

IH1

The gaming universe of Scythe, set in an alternate Eastern European 1920-era, is right up my street.  Replete with steampunk, First World War tech and mechs, it is all I could ever ask for in a game.

When KING Art Games announced the Kickstarter campaign for the directly-related Iron Harvest PC Real Time Strategy game, I immediately contributed as much cash as I could afford.  I also recently bought Scythe: Digital Edition PC game on Steam, which has admittedly, so far, been a lot for me to wrap my brain around.
