i am surly cross the bridge (actually many bridges  ;) ) , when it comes to it.
 
THX to Grogheads i will hear about them when they are close on the horizon, or just got released just the other day…
i am so tired on waiting, and personally taking track, and checking on dev forums and there are no news about progress or release days since i last checked month ago…

Nowadays i prefer the surprise when a game title is suddenly the top-five topic here when i open the Grogheads forum page :)

It may or maynot release this year. Fingers crossed.

The above posts jogged my memory for Ultimate Admiral - Dreadnoughts.

It could end up being my favorite game of all time.

For those who have Command Ops on your list, here's an update, they will Not be charging for updating your data on new engine releases which they were originally going to do for any engine upgrades with major features added. Here's a copy and paste of the original post.

I've been having a rethink on all of this. It's obviously very confusing to most people. I've also found out that it's going to take a lot of developer resources to implement this on Steam. So, I'm going to forego charging users to update their data content. We'll do this for free. Each time we put out an update that requires conversion of data content, we'll provide new versions of the data modules for existing users to download. You still won't be able to automatically convert stock scenarios using the editors but you will be able to convert non-stock data - ie the stuff you generate.

The core engine will still be free. You will not need to maintain multiple versions of the core or data- just the latest core engine and the latest version of the data you have purchased.

Now this means we forego revenue and god only knows we need it. But we'll be relying on your support in buying our data modules. We'll monitor how this works.

The game is by Ezra Sidran, who goes way back into PC wargaming history. He was the guy behind UMS (Universal Military Simulator) in 1988 and UMS II, back in 1991.

"Baseball's Sad Lexicon" - 1910

These are the saddest of possible words:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
      Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
      Making a Giant hit into a double—
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
      “Tinker to Evers to Chance.”

"Tinker to Evers to Chance"
"where doubles go to die"

These three players helped the Cubs win four National League championships and two World Series from 1906 to 1910.

Right now my most anticipated release is Field of Glory: Empires. Its a concept that I have craved ever since I first played Rome: Total War, being able to manage your empire on a grand scale while still being able to fight out the decisive battles on a tactical layer. For me, it combines my two primary interests in the Classical era, the way of nations (Athenian democracy, Roman marble pillars and concrete, etc) and classical warfare (the Roman Legions, the phalanx, etc) I cannot overstate how excited I am for this game. The Dev Diaries they have posted are quite fun to read as well. Would highly recommend them to those interested/questioning the game.

Otherwise I have been excited for Flashpoint Campaigns: Southern Storm for a while now. Work is still continuing on it according to their developers over on the Matrix forums, but it is certainly well past its projected release date. IIRC it was first supposed to be out a few years ago. Still excited for it when it eventually releases though, as I am a big fan of FCRS.

I'm also excited for the teased but not officially revealed CMANO 2. Big fan of CMANO and I'm very excited to see what new features will come with a version 2.

Plenty of other minor things to be excited about as well, but right now those are my big 3.

Thanks Bart - I had not seen the site yet, thank you. Age of Sail interests me less than Dreadnoughts but it still interests me. I will get both 😎

Looks like Age of Sail will be released first...

I forgot about Grand Tactician: The Civil War 1861-1865.  It's looking super promising, but whether it's a "must have" or not depends on its reception at release.

1. Get new PC built.  :buck2:

Now to the list:

Rule the Waves 2

Field of Glory: Empires

as far as I know. The rest are already out but my current PC is too old.

Steel Divisions 2 (however, I need more time in SD1 before I buy this)
CC: The Bloody First
Burden of Command (although there is no 2019 release date, but it's looking like they're close to their first beta)

None.  I'm trying to play my huge backlog of games I know are excellent based on reviews and observations here and elsewhere.
