The first game I'm playing tonight after I get out of work is "Daddy protects 14 year old daughter from boyfriend with baseball bat."

Well not really but I am chaperoning movie night at my house in which my 14 year old daughter has invited her first real 'boyfriend' over to watch movies.  Actually I've met him and he seems like a fine young man but as all fathers of daughters know, no boy is good enough for daughter. 

Anyway....I plan on squeezing in some, but not a lot, of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Then I've got a good game of Stellaris vanilla going on to warm up for the new Star Trek Mod that Barthheart mentioned above. 

And finally I'm going to setup one of my board games and stare at it on the table for a while.  Don't know what I'll be attempting to solo but I will set something up.  More to follow....
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Not that Iíll ever need them because my daughters are never dating, but please take copious detailed notes.

Yes, the horror!  I'll definitely be taking notes tonight and will share. 

I know you two have little ones of your own.  Enjoy them while they're still young.  Once they hit the teen years you know what happens.

A fantastic cover of a fantastic song...

Well, another uncertain weekend gameplay-wise. Been playing Total War Warhammer II again, lately. Also, the new version of the StarWars Galaxy at War mod for Men at War AS2 has been released after years of waiting, so Iíll mess around with that too. I definitely want to play something sci Fi or Space 4x...just not sure what....anyway, everybody enjoy.

  You can't go wrong with poor ole Kurt (sniff, sniff)

  Yep.  Definitely some War thunder, but other than that and a board game or two...I'm not sure what else.

  Phantom doctrine.  I think another influence on the game is the game called Invisible.  At the moment Phantom Doctrine seems more entertaining than either Invisible or Xcom ever was.  My character arrived with a folding stock M14 which seems odd.  Plus of course nothing looks 80s...it all looks derived from Hollywood over the last 80 years (well there's your 80s ) -- but that's okay.  I kind of like the lack of any sign of any art direction -- except for some kind of derivation from movies.

Though, I guess it would've been nice to have a daughter.. as long as she skipped age 11-21.

Get my PBEM files answered, do some playtesting for JTS, and hopefully spend  more time on my Flashpoint Campaign Red Storm AAR.  Had one daughter and being 6'3'' and 300 lbs went a long way to keeping the boyfriends on the straight and narrow. Plus they always seemed to choose to come over when I was cleaning my shotgun.

Holy shit, Yazzy.  Solium Infernum...now that's a game I'd forgotten all about!  I wonder if I can still download it...gosh, I forgot I even had that guy's games.

Not that I have an issue with it because I enjoy Kurt Cobainís version even more than the original

Blasphemy!!!
 :tickedoff: >:( :tickedoff:

One of my fave songs ever. Nirvana's cover is great, but compared to Bowie himself?? No contest.

Huge gaming funk the past couple of weeks. Don't seem to have the mental capacity or interest to get into anything....  :(

Although I did like that Metal Gear Solid V opens with this song... even if it is the somewhat cheesy 80s synth cover.  Maybe I should fire that up....
