Do you wanna FRIDAY!?
« on: December 28, 2018, 03:51:07 AM »
Time to get funky, Grogheads!



DCS, Star Citizen, Arma 3, and GTA 5 with LSPD First Response mod. It's amazing, really.

Have a safe and happy New Year all!

Red Dead Redemption with a side of Red Dead Redemption and a buttered Red Dead Redemption.

If I need a break probably some painting of my Mice and Mystics minis (which I am way behind on) and some 4x / grand strategy games (Vicky 2, Stellaris or endless space 2)
Insert witty comment here.

Excellent song!

After playing a game of Pandora: First Contact, i've decided to try Civilization: Beyond Earth during the holidays. I had it in my library (bought it once when it was on sale) and i wasn't in a hurry to try it as the reviews weren't great. Bit mistake! I've played two campaigns in 2 days and intend to continue playing for a while. It's my favorite Civilization game so far. Great game imho.
My all time favorite games:
Master of Orion, Civil War II: Generals,  Armada 2526 Supernova, Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom, Imperium Galactica I, Conquest: Frontier Wars, Master of Orion III, Spartan, Civilization III, Knights of Honor, Takeda 2 and 3, Horizon, Master of Orion Conquer the stars, Pandora: First Contact, Civilization: Beyond Earth and Civilization VI.

Favorite games by Haemimont:
Rising Kingdoms, Omerta: city of gangsters, Celtic Kings: Punic Wars, Glory of the Roman Empire, Imperium Romanum and Grand Ages: Rome

Gonna be a straight-up Ubisoft fanboi and play around with The Division and TC: GR Wildlands and Rocksmith 2014.

Oh, and get washed away by all this damn rain.

Warframe as always
The Colonists - a nice little Settlers/Anno crossover
Objects in Space - basically a freeform submarines in space sim
Final Fantasy 15 - just got it on the PS4 for Christmas and I'm pleasantly surprised with it so far

I've heard things about Objects in Space I keep thinking about that one.

Anyhoo...

I am off this weekend as of NOW, and on the agenda:

Book of Demons
Field of Glory II


That's it so far. I might pick up some stuff on Steam Sale but we'll see.

^Tell me all about Book of Demons.

I will be playing some more Ultimate General: Civil War, some Wings!, some futzing around with the Iron Harvest alpha and perhaps some Scythe: Digital Edition.

Went through the tutorials yesterday and it is weirdly atmospheric game.

If I am feeling really ambitious (I am not right now) I may start a Shogun: Fall of the Samurai campaign, modded with the Total FotS mod.

I just picked up Scythe the other day, Gus. We can do some mp eventually!

Relatedly, I've been playing a little Lords of Waterdeep (with its two expansions) recently, which is as close to Courtier as available currently (and better in some ways), and anyone who has Twilight Struggle already for multiplayer will have a Playdek account. The whole set is for sale at just under $12, and I'm liking it a lot!

Up to 6 people can play, and I'd like to see a full Grog match going with it.  :smitten:


(Relatedly, I'm still going with my Age of Wonders 3 match, with both expansions, against Yskonyn, where we had hoped we'd get more Grogs in the match, but alas. Not too late to restart that, though, if anyone's interested! The pbem functionality is beta, but seems to be working flawlessly for us so far!)

Well picked up Afghanistan '11 yesterday and it has kept me busy and happy.  Really like it so far.  Just got through all the tutorials and now on to the real campaigns.

Curious to what you think of Scythe, Pratt. I liked what I saw but it seems a little, I dunno...obtuse? Like...intentionally obtuse...

Just picked up ATOM RPG from Steam, so I'm eager to give a go this weekend. I have read that it is pretty much an early Fallout clone. In a positive direction.

Got myself an rx580 for an enthoo pro m compy case as a Christmas present for myself because of this sh*tshow of a year. It'll look a big ugly though until I bother to get some more upgrades. Got myself into an assessment  for train driving, god knows how that will go because there's a medical....and pushups...with a buggy tricep.

Foodwise, trying to decide a healthy Thai thing to make today, five spice vegetable stew, red curry with tofu and snake beans or cauliflower yellow curry. Gaming wise I'm deep into thrones of Britannia with the new update, bit of siege, getting back into koth in Arma 3

I picked up Scythe as well but haven't had much time to spend on it.  Currently not home on my own rig.  Looks good from my initial inspection however.  Plus watching some of the let's plays on YouTube make me want to buy the actual board game as well.  Can't seem to find it anywhere at brick and mortar stores. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
