Title: Born to friday
Post by: Anguille on April 12, 2019, 03:16:13 AM


Will try finish my Oil Rush campaign (about to start chapter 4). It's a nice little game i bought many years ago (trying to visit most of my gaming library).

Also trying to win my Master of Orion (1993) campaign...behind the Meklars and the Silicoids right now.

Happy weekend

Could have been Dancing on Friday.... ;)

I'll be growing my pot empire in 'Weed Inc', the Marijuana supplier/dealer simulator.

Working on a chimney that decided that it doesn't want to be part of my house any more; it's forcing a "chexit," if you will.

Otherwise, I don't think I'll see much gaming time at all.  :(

Offer the chimney a few delays (don't forget to blame them on somebody else) and gaming time appears ...

CMANO and Battlestar Galactica Deadlock for gaming and Paris-Roubaix on Sunday.

Chexit sounds almost as dangerous as Brexit.

Lol.  With the wife standing behind me, doing the "angry foot-tapping," thing and glaring at the back of my head (all metaphorically speaking until its the real deal), I don't think I can get out of this in any way.  I swear the lady is allergic to seeing people sit down sometimes.

Pillars of Eternity 2 if I get the time, where I just got my butt kicked big-time at, 'The Observatory'. I'll be back for you guys at a later date with more firepower. Have a great weekend Grogs.  O0

We are back from the Final 4 ahead of the horrible upper Midwest winter storm.  Got a lot of things to do around the house.

But Aggressors, Ancient Rome has been awesome.  So many choices in retirement - write up a couple of things for my blog?  Write up New Georgia AAR and put it on my blog?  Play Aggressors?  Read one of the many really interesting RPG pdfs that I have? 

Life is good.

Minecraft is my gaming group's big thing right now.  Also, against my own better judgement I bought Cold Waters because I'm dying for a modern sub sim.  I've done the tutorials so I will probably start a campaign in earnest this weekend.

And of course, over on ye olde PS4 I am still playing The Division 2.

My wife is off visiting her sister so I am going to get some stick time in on my modded EECH install. So many terrains, so little time.

Feeling the need for speed, too. Need to get F4 BMS reinstalled.

I will get the new Anno, but not until a price drop and not through Epic.

Up until about 10 minutes ago I would have said Division 2, CMANO, and DCS. But given the fact that I just rage uninstalled Div 2 I think I'll replace it with some Elite Dangerous or maybe a new game.

I delved back into BMS a few months ago and had a blast, get the launcher app, makes setting up your controls painless.  You can find it in the BMS forums.

I've never had any issues with my CH HOTAS setup provided I was not trying to run under Windows 10.  It's a Microsoft/CH Products issue, not a BMS issue. I have a Windows 7 partition for running my sims.

I really wish I could get a good cockpit for the F-22. The external model is sweet. I know someone was working on one but it sounded like brain surgery to get it installed.

The Division 2 has some endgame issues currently.  Massive are working on it but I guess it will take a couple of weeks at the very least to get things into shape.  Probably much longer for balancing issues.

The end game in Division 2 is completely broken. Well the PvE is, I don't really enjoy PvP in any game so can't speak for the Dark Zone.

Well I just dinged 30 so I'll soon see for myself what endgame is like.

Kushan, I spent a long, long time never engaging in any kind of PvP in games, and when I eventually did, I kicked myself for taking so long.  PvP usually takes a game to the next level.  The dark zone in the Division games are a particularly good example actually, because you're never quite sure who's on your side and who isn't.  It makes for an immensely fun experience.  Consider giving it a go some time?
