Echoing Mirth, Grogheads dropped the ball in 2017 voting and awards.  We need to do better in 2018.

I'm nominating Order of Battle WW2: Sandstorm as the best digital game add-on for 2018.  I'm working on a review which will go into detail about my reasoning. 

I'm not sure Mirth will ever see it since it will come out eventually on the "Shangri-La Front Page."

I'm nominating Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

I'm completely blown away with what a good job they've done on re-creating early 15th century Bohemia. 

I don't usually spend this much on a game, but it's been worth every penny (even if I hadn't picked it up on sale).

Aggressors is good enough for a nomination?

I wouldn't have nominated it, and I was a beta tester before I gave up on it.

What is it that you don't like? I am still in the learning phase.

Yeah, the maps aren't the best looking for a 2018 release.

That looks pretty amazing, and the system specs don't look too awful.  :notworthy:
