Hmmmm...if baby sleeps and I get a break, Star Citizen 3.6.1, AoW Planetfall, and maybe some more Cliff Empires?

Everyone enjoy...

Hope that happens for you. My 2nd daughter didnít sleep well or for full overnight for the first 2 years of her life. Iím pretty sure I lost some of my sanity in that time.

Probably spending most of my time with Oxygen not included with some catchup time on Asscreed Odyssea and Red Dead 2

It begins today, actually, with Finnish GOAT vs Merseyside Reds. I am with latter however, should be a nice game though!

Received my BGG marketplace order for Against the Odds magazine's Khe Sanh 1968 game by John Prados (of Rise and Decline of Third Reich fame). Interesting looking articles, too. Should be fun!



Maybe some TOAW IV too, as this is the computer wargaming side of Grogs  O:-)

Working on CMANO description files, FoG-Empires and getting my butt kicked in a FoGII tournament.  Also BoC work.

Grand daughters birthday party tomorrow so probably not much gaming.  :'(  If it gets quiet, I'll play a little Baldur's Gate 2 Enhanced Edition where one of the new characters is a vampire thief-stess, 'Hexxen'. Maybe I'll take her out for a spin to see how well she knows her thief-stuff.

Awesome!  Let us know what you think.

I'm currently playing the Vassal module of VG Vietnam 1965-1975 and I'm just amazed at how deep that game is.  Makes me wish I got it when it came out back in the day.   :(
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Still loving DCS. Getting the hang of the F-18. Figured out the JDAM and litening pod (bombs and AGM-65E). Last one is the HARM. Have to say that using the litening pod the set up the JDAM is pretty damned easy. Surprised.

Iím loving this sim and itís the first flight sim Iíve been into. Still trying to learn the mission editor. Created a pretty big operation but itís tough to get the timing down as well as getting AI troops to move and fight like I want.

Had planned to give Field of Glory:Empires a go but as I donít have a lot of game-time, I end up on DCS

Gentlemen, this is Hexxat, female vampire thief custom made for BG 2. Very good with crossbows, short swords, and snarky one-liners, "You're lucky I'm here" and, "Is that the best you can do"?

I'm going to continue my Shogun 2 Fall of the Samurai campaign and start Order of Battle Blitzkrieg.  This is assuming my children sleep :D

I had no idea that such a character was possible in Baldur's Gate 2. Does it affect gameplay? Do you have to constantly feed, etc.?

No, nothing like that so far. She has a thing that allows her to go out in daylight too. As well as her own related quest. There are 3 or 4 NPC's created for BG 2 EE all with their own quests. However all are of 'Evil' alignment so don't get along with the other traditional NPC's like Minsc and Jaheria. I picked her up to try to get a decent thief because my last quest I nearly lost the entire party to traps.  :pullhair:  She has good thief abilities and other vamps can't drain levels off her experience by hitting her.

Through the kindness of some brunch buddies, I have logged 40 hours since Monday on Field of Glory:Empires.  I am terrible at it.  In my defense, I haven't read the manual, only watched the Tutorials, and got a couple of tips from Tuna.  However, he showed me a screenshot of his second game and he's KILLING it!!!  I feel so inadequate :(
