Diablo III - Started a couple of years ago - got 3/4 of the way through and got stuck.  I picked it back up recently and finally finished it.

I psyched by the notion of Pillars 2 having, instead of a Stronghold, a customizable in-game ship for you to manage. You are in charge of hiring crew, adding on weapons and other things, and can use it to explore and fight naval battles. If it's close to what they're promising, it should be almost a whole game in itself.  :D

Good for you! I quit on Diablo years ago, after I couldn't come close to beating Diablo 2.  My aging brain couldn't handle the frantic clicking.

Well, listening to Gus thrill at the single player campaign in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gave me the incentive to pick it up again and finally finish the campaign. I had stopped long ago at mission 29 of 31. I knew the end was near, but the game takes up over 100 GB of space and I needed to free some of that up. I reinstalled it on my back-up rig and streamed it to my main system this afternoon, resulting in the spectacular finish. Seriously, even the credits were worth watching (and listening to). I have NEVER sat through the credits of a game, at least as far as I can remember. Fantastic story, fantastic characters, fantastic writing, fantastic graphics, everything was so great. I don't think I've been this moved by a game since Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Hundreds of people made this game possible and its clear that they poured their hearts and souls into it. It really pains me to see how much hate this game gets on the internet. It can't be easy to create something so great over three years of your life, only to have it $hit on by self-entitled, know-it-all, morons on the web for no apparent reason...

Anyway, I appreciate their effort and I hope they continue to make strong single player campaigns like this in the future. I finished it in 10 hours on the nose. Enjoyed every minute.

Congrats on the win Jar!  :bd:  That always looked like a really tough game to beat.

Birth of America 2-- a Major Victory in the what-if scenario where King Louis sends additional forces to Canada for Montcalm to go on the offense. I managed to capture Albany on the very last turn of the campaign for the win. I think this is the first big victory I've ever gotten in an AGEOD game instead of the usual minor victories I end-up with. Lots of fun.

Finished my first complete game of Civ VI.  I played as Engerlund on King level, huge world, marathon length.  I was planning on going for a science victory while concentrating on making money but the AI wasn't having it.  I don't understand their rationale but 3-4 times during the game, the other Civs would gang up and two or three would all declare war on me at once even though they were in no shape to do so.  I'd just use my cash to buy units and go and punish one of them for their temerity.  Not sure how it happened but by the 1800s I'd managed to take all the capitals except for Paris and Rome.  I developed stealth bombers and decided I might as well go for a domination victory.  Three stealth bombers, a few barrages from a pair of battleships, and a modern armoured corps knocking at the door does wonders for a change of management in a capital city.  Rome and Paris fell very easily and that was all she wrote.  I enjoyed it well enough but I think I like Civ V better at this point.  Going to get into the new Stellaris next.


I ran into a bug involving bombers and carriers.  If I used bombers or stealth bombers from a carrier, the bombers would get locked to the sea hex where the carrier was located.  Even if I moved my carrier, the bombers would stay locked to the sea hex and I'd have to re-base them to a city and then back to the carrier if I wanted them to be able to move again.

Congrats on the win!  I just heard about a new mod called Caveman to Cosmos.  JH was fiddling around with it the other night and I am waiting for a report back on how he liked it.

1st Space victory in Civilization 6! Georgia wasn't far behind but I completed the Mars mission first. This is the first computer game I have actually played to completion in a long, long time. This was also the very first game I started with the Rise and Fall expansion pack. I usually keep starting over after a new DLC drops but Rise and Fall has brought that "just one more turn" feeling back for me. Rise and Fall is an awesome expansion.  O0

Oh, and this is also my first post in this thread!

Teddy would be proud! -- and also would make Mars a national park (and go shoot things there).  O0
