Master of Orion, Civil War II: Generals,  Armada 2526 Supernova, Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom, Imperium Galactica I, Conquest: Frontier Wars, Master of Orion III, Spartan, Civilization III, Knights of Honor, Takeda 2 and 3, Horizon, Master of Orion Conquer the stars.

Favorite games by Haemimont:
Rising Kingdoms, Omerta: city of gangsters, Celtic Kings: Punic Wars, Glory of the Roman Empire, Imperium Romanum and Grand Ages: Rome

I'm going to tryout Mass Effect Andromeda.  Found a 50% off deal and couldn't resist (have 100 unplayed/unfinished games but felt I needed something new ...).

Steel Division Normandy is my backup plan.

Steel Division all weekend for me. Got access to review code for my article on Tuesday so going to be working through some solo stuff and then perhaps some MP with some of the other Divisions I haven't tried out yet.

And then maybe some RimWorld as I just bought that.

^Cool!
I'll most likely end up playing Endless Space 2. I also might play Oxygen Not Included. On the table, there's a possibility of Tiny Epic Kingdoms.

Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare on the 360 with my lady friend when we are not digging new allotments and flower beds in the garden.

Week long vacation starts at the end of work today!  \m/

Most of my "free" time will be filled with adding 70sq. ft. to my wife's vegetable garden, moving 5 cu. yards of dirt for said garden, 1 cu yard of river stone for around the pool, painting the front door, rebuilding the front walk and adding more flower garden space there. Plus various other small tasks needed to get the back yard ready to summer fun.

I'll be playing DC1: Warsaw to Paris with Jason as I'm way behind on the play and my AAR.
Maybe some Steel Division.
Picked up Dirt Rally for cheap last weekend so need to dig out my wheel and pedals and take that for a spin.

Just put Cobra: Patton's 1944 Summer Offensive in France on the table for some old timey goodness. I've got the SPI flat pack edition. Very short rules and low counter density. Should be fun.

Got to be Ghost Recon:Wildlands - 247 hours in game so far!

Also, I'll be starting a playthrough of the Star Wars:Rebellion boardgame. It's not a single player game and I'm going to know where the rebel base is, but I can avoid going for the jugular to get some game mechanics down pat.

Nothing else is on the menu.

'HuzzahCon' - wish I thought of that.

Continue to soil my drawers in Alien - Isolation. Great game but I may have to take a break soon just to relax a bit. I'm about half way through.

I tried to fire up Sins of a Solar Empire - Rebellion for a bit last night but could not get it started. Uninstalled and reinstalled and still wouldn't work. Any advice?

Also may fire up Call of Duty - Infinite Warfare.
Quite.

This weekend is really up in the air for me. I've bought a lot of early access/indie games this week, including some very impressive VR ones. Check out Sairento VR...you're some kind of a cyborg ninja assassin and this game really manages to make you feel like one.  Very awesome.

Anyway, I'll probably devote some time to those. I'm also playing around again with Hellion, Endless Space 2 and I also caught the ARMA 3 bug...again...well, I guess in hindsight, I never really lost that one. Oh, and Prey. I've started that one, but really have barely touched it.

Finish putting together, compiling, and uploading Turn 2 of my schizo-AAR of CHURCHILL

Play Turn 5 vs Barth in our mp of Decisive Campaigns: Blitzkrieg (if I get a chance)

Mess around more in skirmishing SD44, or some friendly mp if I can arrange it.

Can it be possible that I somehow finally manage to play Scourge of War: Waterloo multiplayer again at last...?!?!!!1?

Uh, I dunno, something something. Honestly, finishing the video AAR will take a lot of time as always. ...recording Turn 3 of Churchill? I'm at the point where I need to buckle down as FDR if I'm going to have any chance of pulling out a win against Winston and "Uncle Joe" constantly leeching off me, and I'm itching to see if I can adjust in time.  :knuppel2: It doesn't help that the Axis is putting up a lot better defense than one might expect on average. ...uh, minor spoilers for Turn 2 on the way...
GROGS OF CRISIS -- a four-player mp of GMT's boardgame Time of Crisis, set in the decades before Diocletian.

Me vs Barth -- DC1: Blitz

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

Trying to fall back in love with Attila: Total War using the Radious Mod as the Visigoths but I'm just not getting that old special feeling I used to get from this one. I think we've both 'moved-on'.  :'(   So, started a new DC: Case Blue campaign as consolation-- she NEVER disappoints. And respects me in the morning.
