Not much gaming for me. My hard drive conked out last week, my partner gave me his spare though and I'm still putting games on it. So for me it's siege, total war Atilla and trying to figure out the arma warlords game mode. Also got an interview on Tuesday for an admin position for an r&d boss in a cosmetic company!

"If it walks like a Duck": Playing some more Mutant Year Zero. Maybe some CMSF2 and I need to actually play some Armored Brigade. Also, need to update Star Citizen and work on my weapon load-outs for my continued A-B fighter testing between my Sabre and Super Hornet. Delaying buying X4 as I've already got too many new games to devote quality time to as it is.

3.4 is with Evocatii. Should go to wider PTU within the next week!

Exciting. That sounds like a major star citizen patch.
P.S. I ended up playing stellaris until 4am with two buddies. We had megacorps going. A friend was opening branches in my systems... but it cost him energy credits per month.

Quiet day today of pool-cleaning and kicking the Italians out of East Africa in TOAW 4. I'm thinking the pool will be the tougher fight.

I think that was JH hitting on you.
...

Well I do have to play hard to get you know.  I'm cheap but not easy.   ;D

But I'd love to play TI4 with JH if he were to say get the game.  I'm only a 2.5 hour drive away.



Really? Where are you again?

I just might consider that!

I'm in the greater Boston area so not too far away from you. (assuming your not far from the big apple)

Yeah...I'm about an hour east of the City.  :-\

It sounds like you live near my old stomping grounds. Piscataway / Middlesex.

Yer in the “Deep South” there. Go west about 20 minutes and it’s like a whole ‘nother State

That said i now live spitting distance from PA.

It’s definitely Deep South for me. Beautiful for holiday time, though.

^ Heh, small world.  My wife and I got married at Hereford Lighthouse, which I believe is on the Wildwood/Cape May border.

If I just get to take a nap I will be ecstatic!

Groggy - post impressions of you can on Germany at War, I just bought it too.

So far I've played the tutorial for GaW. It was a straightforward tutorial scenario of having to destroy some Russian infantry and occupying a 'Target A'  town hex. It was a very simple scenario where you selected a combination of tiger and air units, although I'm not quite sure yet how support units work in the game. I like the UI and the graphics look pretty crisp. I also like the contrast and colors of the map, although I've only seen the tutorial map thus far. One feature I like in the game system is that adjacent friendly units to an attacking friendly unit reduce an enemy unit's defense.

A few screenshots of the tutorial scenario are attached.
