Computer Wargaming / Re: Here's to FRIDAY
« Last post by MetalDog on Today at 03:50:07 PM »
This morning, it will be the first showing of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Upon my return, it will not be anything appropriately space themed.  No, it will be the exact opposite, Medieval 2:TW as Venice.  I am beset by enemies and my allies are worthless.  Oh, and the Mongols just showed up in the Holy Land, which I have spent an inordinate amount of time and treasure building up.  Now I guess the invaders will have a nice home.

That sucks.  No chance of fighting them off?


The only position I don't hold Number 1 in is Finance, so, the prospects of keeping what I had in Europe are high.  Even with war from the Byzantines, Milanese, Sicilians, and Egyptians, I should come out on top.  But I saw the initial troops the Khan brought with him.  They are plentiful and experienced. 

They are outside a Turkish city at the very eastern edge of the map.  I've made diplomatic contact with them and offered up my Map Information.  If I can get them to take Turkey from the east, leaving me relatively undisturbed in Jerusalem, I may be able to finish Byzantium from the west.  Even if they take the Holy Land from me, I should be able to make comparable territorial grabs in Italy.  Milan is going down!

Nice.  Good luck, sir!

At the time of the last writing, I was facing four enemies.  Now, I have seven.  To the previous four, Egypt, Sicily, Milan, and Byzantium, I have added Holy Rome, the Mongols, and my treacherous allies, the Hungarians.  In an effort to stop some of these wars or prod allies to action in my defense, I have my diplomatic corps working overtime.  Unfortunately, not only have I been unsuccessful, but, my foray with Hungary ended with him repudiating our alliance and immediately declaring war. 

I've lost and regained Thessalonica and added Milan, Genoa, Smyrna, and Nicaea.  I have a powerful army one turn outside Constantinople, but, there is a Muslim jihad on the Byzantine capitol and their army is at the walls.  Oddly, this is the second turn it has been there and not put it under siege.  All I need is one more turn and I can grab it for myself.  Short of Generals in the right place, but more coming through the family tree.  Oh, and I am slowly improving the Holy Land as the Mongols mill around Baghdad.

I just grabbed a PS4 myself. I have madden, Persona 5 and Horizon:Zero Dawn.

Not sure what else I may get but thatís a helluva lot of gaming for me.  Persona 5 is probably the best of the series so far. Characters arenít as good as 4 but the gameplay is a lot tighter.

Damn Jeb Stuart and his light tanks!

Sherman and a few of his tanks would sure botch things up for those boys. It wasn't until recently that I learned that Tecumseh was a loader and not the gunner as originally thought. He preferred discard sabot. Who would have thunk?

 Well the game has such incredible reviews that I think I will just stick with the full price and reward such an effort, especially considering it to be such a small studio. I'm very interested in the GM mode.

The game is more current than I thought.

My dilemma is do I play divinity original sin 2 that I purchased last night? Or do I wait four days to see if it's on sale?  Maybe I fire it up and only play less than two hours  to qualify for a refund if it does indeed go on sale?

Hmmm. Thoughts? Coherent thoughts?
