Nothing yet.

Nothing really grabs me that I have not already got or the price is too steep for my wishlisted games that I know I will get and play once because they are single player.
I did consider getting the Desert map for DCS and did consider Thrones of Britiannia. But no.

I'm only grabbed OOTP19 ($5) so far... Still in my boardgaming phase, and adding anything to my (way too big) unplayed video games list just seems like overkill.

Nothing yet here, but reading this thread reminds me that there are some games out there I sort of want, specifically Thrones of Britannia and Warhammer I/II.

Commander: The Great War on Steam.  Nice game.  At only $10, I don't regret the purchase in the slightest.  With the PotzBlitz Mod as an essential add-on, I can foresee myself continuing to, you know, actually play CTGW.
I have had my eyes on that game for quite some time as I have no good WWI game. Do I need to know much about WWI to enjoy it? How complex is it? How about the AI? Will look for that mod you mentioned if I get the game. Thanks for the heads up.

So far: Ogre and Wars Across the World

Got my 10 yr Matrix anniversary coupon today.  Used it to snag Aggressors: Ancient Rome, Panzer Doctrine, and Land Doctrine for 41% off their $39 sale price.  Of course the $16 in savings was then thrown away on WitE and the Don to Danube expansion which I have as much chance of playing as the WitPacific and WitWest games I bought the previous two years!  Gary had better come out with something new for me to throw away my savings on next year.

No prior knowledge needed.  Tactically simple, strategically complex, but not overly so.  The AI is decent enough to challenge me.  With the PotzBlitz mod especially -- an essential add-on, IMO; don't play the game without it -- there is much variation and replayability.  The game can go down a different narrative path each time.  Recommended.

I kind of liked the demo; and I'm glad the developer was able to be picked up by Matrix! I didn't check up on it again this year, but probably will next year.

After messing around with Deity Empires a little, I've refunded: it has promise but as one of the reviewers said, it's a rough diamond in the rough! Basically a functional alpha being marketed and sold as a finished product. Clunky UI with a severe lack of explaining setup options doesn't help. Too many other games do it better right now, but it does have good potential.

Isn't the second rough redundant?  >:D
