FRIDAY damage
« on: October 12, 2018, 05:29:36 AM »


My brother and sister-in-law are in town, so probably not much gaming. However, if I get the chance, more Assassins Creed Odyssey, Armored Brigade beta and some Star Citizen alpha 3.3.

See you guys on the Dark Side of the Moon...

The Red Orchestra franchise has bit me hard again, so I'll be popping between Vietnam and WW2.

Stay safe, folks!

Continuing my Odyssey in Greece and maybe buy Gemini Warlords (https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/8031/Starpoint_Gemini_Warlords_Gold_Pack/ on sale) to try it out.

Really can’t beat Dark Side of the Moon.

I am putting Witcher 3 Blood and Wine (reluctantly) aside and finally have some time this weekend to start Vampyr.

And probably a vampire counts campaign in Warhammer TW, to keep with the theme.

I am having more fun with Civilization VI than with Civilization V right now. Out of curiosity, i've started two campaigns with similar settings (huge, no city-states and with Rome). I am surprised as i wasn't convinced by the game after my first campaign.


I am also going to continue my first Stellaris campaign (smallest map) but can't seem to be going very far (just started to colonize my 4th planet after more than 10 hours of gameplay). It's not a bad game but i am somehow disappointed by it. I had higher expectations.


Finally, i have finally started a full campaign of Aggressors: ancient Rome playing with Carthage. Still learning the game.

Stellaris, Phantom Doctrine, and Heroes & Generals.  I am also dabbling with Ring of Elysium but mostly play only with my online friends.

Awesome song choice JH...there's hope for you yet.  :-"  :notworthy:   
Been getting into GT: Mius Front. That newer 'how to play' YouTube video someone posted recently in another thread had helped me figure out the difficult UI.

May give Masters of Orion a good start. Space Hulk Tactics is looking tempting.

  I'm starting my life in the Assassin's series with Black Flag.  Pretty amusing so far.  If you carry a musket and two pistols whilst on Nassau, you get get around half of the Red Coats in a given bunch before coming into stabbing distance.  The muskets aren't rated, but one shot seems to drop most opponents, while pistols are less effective of course.

Time will be limited but probably spent on the Endless series (legend and space 2).

Might try to get some Monster Hunter going too.

Plus Witcher 3 has been unduly neglected.
Insert witty comment here.

Meng wait until you start naval combat and even better...shell your first coastal fortress. I have rarely had more fun in a game or real life 😎

I like it a lot so far. I never took a close look at the freeware version so I don't have that to compare it to. I'm still learning how to play it, but there is a lot going on in there and that really appeals to me. Seems to have very in depth unit stats, LOS modeling, terrain factors, weather, morale, training. These are all things I like to see.
