Thanks CJ! The original Witcher is not bad either.

Hey Nelmsm, which AJE scenario are you playing? I love that game. Not sure what I'm playing, depends on the time available. Stay out of that flood water Meng, I hear there's lots of Cottonmouths up your way.

I started with the first one with Marius and Sulla.  Playing as Sulla.

That's a tough one. Probably my favorite so far is the Ceasar vs Pompey one, very much like a theater-wide conflict. Do you have the DLC's from the earlier period? Some of them are excellent too but usually smaller. One day I'm going to get around to finishing the First Punic War.

What is it about the game you like so much? I don’t have it.

I’m confused...is this the “Friday thread”?

   Some work on sandbag barriers (Florence will be more or less at my farm on Monday) and maybe some Rise of the Republic and possibly some Post Scriptum.

Stay safe man.  I'm in Asheville if some Grog needs a place to shelter over.

After two weeks of working, I'm unsure of what, if anything, I'll be playing.  Probably keeping it simple with WoT or WoWs.

Really need workspace to deal with wrenching on the truck - a nice, dry garage would be awesome - as both rear wheels are spitting out brake fluid.  Ah, the joys of old machinery.

Yep. I'm making final preps this weekend to start the Grogpublic forum game, so I mentioned that along the way, but it's the Friday thread.
Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Strategic Werewolf Axe-chopping Simulator video AAR!

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.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Are you sure? You're confusing Mikeck!!!
Just finished my Iceni Rome II campaign.. not sure if I should try a mod now or go back to Attila. Will probably do some Endless Space 2, and some Dustwind (if my friend pops up online).

Congrats on the win Tuna. Sounds like you 'iced-ceni' the competition.  :bd:

Indeed, Tuna was the general of the armies of the Friday! ...um, yesterday! (And maybe today! I don't understand time when I'm sleepy.)

I've been playing Fallout 3 the www.gog.com version.

It has been very stable.  I've only had one crash to desktop in 25 hours of play.  That is a lot more stable than the game was out of the box.
