We're in mixed company?
Sweet. The beta, not the chubby. Here in mixed company we refer to that as 'moist loins.'

I did not go into this game expecting hyper-historical reality and authenticity. Having the story and background based loosely on actual history is enough for me. So far, for me, the vibe feels authentically Viking...the importance of family, the bond between clansmen, the importance of an oath, respect, bravery, etc. it's all here. The setting feels appropriately Norse, as well. Feast halls, mead, long boats, etc.

So far, there are several key women in the story arc...your mother, a friend, a witch and her apprentice (not a magic witch, think medicine and poison) and I've seen a huntress. There is also a female thegn that is situated close to the king. For some reason though, the notion of strong, independent women flows with Norse mythology and history in my mind, so it's working so far and it is not so off-putting or in your face. Trust me...if it was, it would bother me.

JH,  your post is what tipped the scales, made me put it in my cart and pull the trigger. Thank you, sir!

Send Batman?  >:D

Sounds like you should watch some movies and read books and see what sparks interest there. Or troll the internet for gaming. Still, after this long you've probably tried everything.


That's actually what I've been doing.  Plus some tabletop tinkering.  Still have plenty of mini painting to resort to also. 

When my urge to play digital games eventually returns, I'll probably be ravenous in doing so after holding the reset button for so long.

I just picked up the game, but haven't played it much yet. My first brief impression is how smooth movement control is and how cover mechanics don't require extra buttons. I think I'm going to like this one.
They tweeted a couple of days ago "Working hard on Check Your Six! game.  If all goes as planned we can present to Slitherine an early Beta build next week for evaluation!"

You rock heathens. Bow down to the master, Gustav Mahler. Finale of his Symphony No. 8(Symphony of a Thousand).

I once attended a live performance of Mahler's Symphony #8 by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the direction of the legendary Sir Georg Solti.
I prefer the Finale to Symphony #2.  But overall, for me, Mahler's Symphonies #4 & #9 and Das Lied von der Erde are tops.

Mahler!   :notworthy:

Inspired by Pratt and Barth's AAR of DC 1's Case White, I went back and re-played the campaign again on 'Normal' difficulty with the AI given more time to think about it's moves. I've got 2 turns left and the AI has Warsaw turned into a parking lot of troops dug-in and covered everyway possible by arty and flak. I recon I maybe a 20% chance of finishing on time.  :-[  So, some Neverwinter Nights for a break this weekend along with some drinking and swearing at my poor performance.  L:-)

As long as you pick up all the rest of the orange target cities, you don't need Warsaw. The flip side is that the Poles only need to keep Warsaw and one other orange city to totally win.

(Barth's well aware of this, so I'm not spoiling things there.)
