Title: Cross Eyed FRIDAY!
Post by: Jarhead0331 on February 08, 2019, 04:33:33 AM


Iíve been playing a crap load of DCS trying to get used to my new cockpit, Warthog and cougar MFDs. The trend will continue. Still praying for the release of the Tomcat already. Might mix in some CMSF and maybe some  Alpha Genesis One, an interesting space survival game Iíve been tinkering with.

Happy gaming everyone.

You can't go far wrong with some Jethro Tull  O0

Mainly board gaming for me as I have 'At All Cost. Metz 1870' set up ready to go, although I'm also well into a campaign of 'Templar Battleforce' on the PC. Its on sale on Steam as well at the moment, and well worth getting, especially if you like Space Hulk. The gfx are nothing to shout about, but the gameplay is excellent.

Good tune!

I'll be playing some more BFV this weekend.  "Ich sterbe!  Brauche Sanitšter!" 

Picked up Battle of Moscow and Battle of Kuban for IL-2 Sturmovik Battle of Stalingrad during this weeks Lunar Sale on Steam so I will be putzing around with all my shiny new planes as well.

I'll probably check out what's going on with my fellow grogs on Table Top Simulator Saturday night as well.  Had fun last week with Cyrano, Tuna, Jason, and Bartheart. 

And I'll be putting some time in with Warhammer Gladius and something on my PS4.  To be determined.

warframe and red dead 2 are high on my list with the limited time I will get this weekend.

Anxiously awaiting my birthday gift of Mage Knight ultimate edition to start tearing into that solo.

Continuing on with my Order of Battle: Winter War campaign, up to mission five. Very happy with how OoB is clicking with me now - probably my go to WWII game! Funny how a few years of development can turn a game around for you. Picked up all the DLC during the Steam Lunar sale too.

Beyond OoB, the original Division game beckons, as well as Battlefleet Gothic I and II, Mechanicus, and Sanctus Reach. A veritable hootenanny of WH40k is imminent.

Oh, and I also tried Men of War 2, but I didnít enjoy it that much.

Will install the Graviteam Mius Front and Raid dlcs that Ozark Rebel gifted me as well. Anyone know who Ozark Rebel on Steam is?

  Sounds good.  As for me, an old boardgame (2003) Whistling Death and of course Byzantium 1908 Ops2 and World of Warships.

Let's see, will probably play a little Grim Dawn, Civ VI and Wars of Napoleon.  Well if I can figure out what the hell is going on, I'll play Wars of Napoleon :D

I see Kingdom Come is on sale, and it's really tempting me.

Warframe obvs
World of Warships - I had a bad night last night, one of those unaccountable occasions when you just play like a fool for no good reason - so I want to kick some arse this weekend!
Project Hospital - I might not fit this in but I hope I do
The Division 2 - the demo "beta" - loved my first impression of it last night so I'm going to complete the whole thing then wait impatiently for the game to release

Have a good weekend everyone!

Well answering PBEM files and getting a bit more serious about the games I'm playtesting for JTS.  Maybe some Afghanistan '11, since I picked up the Royal Marines, FOG2, or CMANO, if some spare time finds it's way to me.

My bet is still Moreb, think he mentioned often going to cabin in woods and mountains, maybe connection to Ozarks which is in Missouri......so MoReb (Missouri Reb) = Ozark Rebel.....that's my guess anyway:)  Plus he always talked about Graviteam games here.

Star Citizen - a friend has requested we play it this weekend
Red Dragon - A rather impromptu game has already been had
Vermintide 2 - We are preparing for this with the download in progress
Space Hulk Deathwing - May finally get a game of this as a friend finally grabbed it in the lunar sales
BattleFleet Gothic II will probably also get a run.

First off....Tull is cool. Excellent pick.

On my agenda

Endless Legend - really liking this. I have just the base game no DLCs and even then there's a lot to grok.
Field of Glory II

Maybe something on the Lunar Sale on GOG or Steam don't quite know. I have been in a funk lately.

Been playing around with a lot of different ship exploration builds in Elite Dangerous the last few days. My original plan was to kit out my Imperial Clipper or Asp Explorer but after looking around and doing messing around with outfitting on coriolis, I've decided to put both into storage and get a Krait Phantom. The Krait just has better jump range without major engineering and better module selection. First stop will be the abandoned dynasty expedition settlements. After that, I think I'd really like to see Sagittarius A.

With my main account about to head out on a very long exploration trip, I'm also going to put some time into my second account. Pretty sure that commander is still sitting in the starting station.

There will probably be some CMANO this weekend as well. My weekly livestream tomorrow and I'm really close to finishing up my Operation El Dorado Canyon scenario, for the 2nd time.

This all assumes I don't lose power from the snow storms moving in the PNW this weekend. Folk around here are stocking up on supplies over a measly 3-4 inches (at the most) of snow.  :idiot2:

Great Tune

Going to chill this weekend as Monday I'm expecting another granddaughter.  :smitten:
I may finish my Mius Front Under the Cruel Star campaign. Getting slaughtered.

Gotta add another from that incredible album if I may.

Tull is an all time favorite of mine.  Seen them three or four times.  Including one Halloween in the 80's.  It was awesome!  A favorite of mine:




Coming to a head in my Civ IV BtS as Lincoln.  All four remaining AI have raced ahead of me in research.  They will have advanced tanks.  I don't have anything to defend that and it's too far to Composites for me to be able to catch up in time.  My only hope is numbers and experience until I can get there.

For me, it's Endless Space 2.  If I can get my mouse zoom problems fixed--my mouse wheel goes berserk after 20 minutes of normal play on the game.  It's unique to that game, but something I can reproduce over 2 different Logitech mouses.  Grrrr...

Otherwise, I might fall back on Darkest Dungeon.  And of course, a little mindless fun with Transport Defender, which offers a Tetris-like compulsion to play what is essentially a spreadsheet management game with graphics from 1993.

Won my first Order of Battle campaign just now...the Winter War (Finland vs. Soviet Union). As a prize, I now get to continue the war...now on the offense...by helping Nazi Germany invade the USSR at the beginning of Barbarossa  :buck2:

Players definitely get their money's worth with this Winter War DLC...the campaign is detailed, interesting and hard fought - it's also virtually two/three campaigns in one, covering three different conflicts (Winter War, Continuation War, Lapland War) So much so that I am getting a little OoB fatigue...it took me three weeks to get to this point! Gonna put it aside for a while and play some other stuff. But I will definitely come back to it. Never had a game as reborn for me as Order of Battle!

Congrats on the Win Gus.  :clap:  The Mannerheim Line is now the, 'Gus-erheim Line'.
Title: Re: Cross Eyed FRIDAY!
Post by: Gusington on February 11, 2019, 06:11:21 AM
Mannerheim sounds much more formidable. I kept telling myself during this slog that the Finns had a real hard time with the Soviets in real life to try and make myself feel better when I had to play through a scenario a second and third time.

And I may have been a little premature in saying the scripting was not as bad this time through. Itís clearly still there but the game, under the hood, may be slightly more forgiving in having players reach their goals, or I have become a better player and grasp what I have to do better.

Either way, like Airboy, OoB has become my goto WWII game. Rarely has a game taken such a turnaround for me and I just canít ask anymore than that. Really looking forward to the other campaigns.

Bought the Pacific one this morning at the end of the Steam sale.

Played a ton of IL2 with JP and W8taminute. Finished the weekend off continuing my TW Napoleon Darthmod campaign as Prussia.

Iím looking to play OoB Morning Sun next, following Japanese aggression in China in the 1930s before WWII officially started. Also picked up Burma Road - I dig the Ďsideshowí campaigns. Winter War is excellent.

Were you able to fix the unit count problem (and if so how)?

Post by: Tuna on February 11, 2019, 08:24:51 AM
Yeah, it was a graphic setting, I guess Darthmod install changed it to low.
