I remember FRIDAY
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:58:56 PM »



I'm off these next two days (at least in theory!), so I'm definitely going to get some gaming in.  I'm currently jonesing for both Oriental Empires and Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock

I could listen to Nat King Cole for like EVER.  O0

I'll be driving - most likely pCars 2 and F1 2017 - I must get over my dislike of Monaco....ALL my F1 seasons in ALL my F1 games either stop at Catalunya or Monaco!

I'll also continue my AAR of my Battle of Britain:Eagle boardgame


Have a good weekend everyone and whilst doing so spare a thought for our very own fellow Grogs Bawb and Denise please http://grogheads.com/forums/index.php?topic=21211.0

Well I’ve been digging into Horizon zero dawn and Persona 5 on PS4 along with Zelda breath of the wild on switch.

On pc I’ve been playing mostly Chronicron and still plugging away at WitW. Might also try to get more time on Tomb Raider (the reboot) just to finish it. I figure I’m about 40% done on it.
Insert witty comment here.

Stuck on a boss fight in Hellblade that is just kicking my buttocks repeatedly. To let out some frustration about that, started playing Viking: Wolves of Misgard too. Think of it as Diablo set in mythical Scandinavia. And it’s actually better than I expected. Expedition: Viking next to complete my wintertime Viking trifecta.

I'm going to get in a few rounds of Nemo's War 2nd Edition and then get GMT's Colonial Twilight back to the table for a few more plays to get more of a feel for it.

Next will probably be...talk about analysis paralysis. I've no idea. There's essentially 12 games on my table right now (literally), seven of which are still in shrink.

Start by removing the shrink wrap.

Sort of up in the air. I'm taking a break from Mass Effect Andromeda after putting 60 hours into it over the past couple of weeks. My goal was to bang Cora and its all mission accomplished on the Tempest in that regard.

I'll definitely play ARMA 3. I've been running through the showcase scenarios to see how they've improved with all the patching that has been done over the years. Many of them I haven't looked at since the game was initially released!

I'm still itching to play a good space 4x. Been tooling around with Stellaris, but I think I may want to move onto something else. Believe it or not, MOO3 is calling to me.

I also may fire up TOAWIV and/or Mius Front for something a little more groggy and a little more 20th century.

Stay warm grogheads, wherever you my be.

I’m also looking for a nice new space 4x...I was looking at Stellaris but it looks like there’s a ton of DLC for it that I should probably wait for a sale on.

I'd love a good 4x space game that isn't super complicated and requiring hours of learning curve time.

I have MOO 1 and 2 on GOG but I haven't put one minute into either after buying them a few years back.

Also have Starflight 1 and 2 on GOG, but again...time.

Rebel Galaxy is kind of fun in spurts but it's not 4x, more like Freespace.

The cold snap has given me an excellent excuse to sit on my butt all week pretty much and play games. But it's warming up now so.... it's back to all the crap I haven't been doing this weekend.  :'(   In between I may squeeze in a little Birth of America 2 or Alea Jacta Est.
