I figured as much. Judas Priest made me do it.  :hide:

At least he made Friday all CAPS.  It's helpful to put it in a line from the song though ;)

Any gaming done for sure this weekend will be Saturday night.  I am in the midst of trying to put together the next D&D campaign, but the regular group will be coming to play some party games anyways.  Digitally, I am in a bit of a slump.  I don't really feel like playing much of anything.
Come inside and vote on the latest music bracket!  Going to attempt to come up with one song to rule them all from 1960 to 1999.  Next up:

1996 Final 4

So many rules broken in the OP that I think this whole thread needs to be closed and restarted.  ;)

What and how much I play this weekend is going to depend on how I feel. Been fighting off The Plague 2017 Part 3 for the last two weeks now. Getting better but still not close to feeling 100% better. There will definitely be some CMANO and Ghost Recon Wildlands. Probably be some World of Warcraft dungeons and some World of Warships with some friends. Have SP game of Stellaris I'm probably going to throw out with a major patch/DLC just a few weeks away but MP might a possibility depending on TheHisoticalGamer's schedule.

Given how I've been lately, I'm just as likely to not touch anything above and play something not on my radar at the moment.
PanzersEast: Have to think to myself.... will I play the first one by the Winter Sale?  Probably not, then I should remove Dragonfall
PanzersEast: but that is thinking too logically.... and Steam Sales are about ignoring Logic

Back from the sun and a 'net black hole I'm ready for some gaming.

PBEM Labyrinth with SDR... Trying to make friends around the world, especially the ones with oil,  while the bad guys blow shit up.
PBEM Flashpoint Campaigns: Reforged with OJsDad.... slowly grinding down a tough US force with arty, chemicals and air power... not sure who will run out of strength first.

Civ VI on super mondo huge map of earth as Egypt on King level. Game is fun but AI needs a LOT of work still.

On the table I have The War from Compass games all setup. I'm going through the tutorial scenarios before starting the main event. Only a 130 pages of rules to digest.  :wow:

Not sure about the weekend gaming. The Matrix Steam sale is luring me into some my wallet. Thinking about "Wars of Napoleon" or "Victory and Glory: Napoleon".

You & I both, MD.

I've only gamed on a computer twice in the past month.  Last was over two weeks ago.  Still no urge.

It's a long hiatus!  :crazy2:

Will be finishing up Sniper Elite II, then going back to Witcher III and Medieval II for a while before jumping into new games like Dishonored 2, Battlefield 1 and Total War: Warhammer.
Quite.

I've been in a severe gaming funk of late, depression of a sorts I guess along with a severe lack of motivation for any sort of gaming, Still I continue to lurk here for inspiration and the hope I can get some of that joy back.

I'm going to sink a few hours into Zelda on the Switch. It's not war but it is oddly soothing.

Lots of Slitherine stuff on sale on Steam too so I'm tempted to buy something new to cheer myself up. Maybe Distant Worlds as it's so cheap.

Is Last Days of Old Earth any good? Looks tempting.

Since it is Priest, your Friday thread transgressions are forgiven, go in peace. Now if that was some Bon Jovi sh*t we'd throw you into the Iron Maiden.

My gaming funk must really and truly be behind me as I'm again looking through my backlog with happy joy joy feelings. There will be some pbem CSME as the battle for Sirte#1 continues. Libya may not hold Sirte but we are exacting a heavy price from the British. I reinstalled the free stand alone Dark Mod for thief, will probably tackle a mission or two. Also getting the urge to straight up blast some sh*t so will look through the library for some fun run and gun, leaning toward one of the Serious Sams.
