Great song!

Witcher 3, Monster Hunter World and maybe some wargame but no idea what.
Insert witty comment here.

Anno 1800, with perhaps a sprinkling of modded Age of Empires 3 and modded Fall of the Samurai if I get too flummoxed. So far Anno has been very patient with me and my fledgling city finally began to enter the industrial age for real last night. It was glorious.

   I think I will be venturing back into the Lush, arcadey world of Hell Let Loose.

Civil War II AAR, BoC and Task Force Admiral work.  A2A's recent release of the Piper J-3 Cub for P3d4 has me resuming my cross country CONUS trip (https://mutleyshangar.com/forum/index.php?/topic/24789-virtual-grand-tour-of-the-continental-usa-in-a-piper-cub/) .  I think I'm going to do a video AAR of the "Chains of War" DLC from CMO. Last year, I had previously started the first scenario when RL interfered, so I'll just pick up from where I left off with that.  The concept I was working with in the CMO AAR was to do the series as a set of planning exercises, using some operational planning techniques instead of merely playing the game.  The game would simply be used to determine whether my planing was good or not.  So, I would do an Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace and base an plan off that,then set up the game to run through the OPLAN and see how it resolved.  Attached is the rough draft powerpoint I was working on that I dropped after RL interfered: https://we.tl/t-32T80ZBBpv

Love that song; it turned me onto Muse (and is a hoot to play in Rocksmith).

Still hoofing it around the island in GR: Breakpoint and actually trying to finish missions as opposed to just killing "baddies," in general - although with my current body count, I'm pretty sure I'm the walking war crime here.

Have a very busy weekend (one kid plays soccer, the others go to the scouts, invitation). Will try to manage to play a little of the following games:

- Civilization 6 with Korea
- Endless Space 2 with the Sophons
- Horizon with the Lezgoons

Have a great weekend.

I'm trying to get back to my ACW 2 campaign as the South but Pillars 2: Beast of Winter has a hold on me right now. And as always, real life rudely intrudes regularly.  >:(

Having the kids over for some family gaming on Saturday. I'll see how much "dad" gaming I can get in. I've been working through my vast GOG library. Currently shooting things up in Unreal II: The Awakening.

Master of Orion: Conquest of the Stars with 5x balance mod.  Can't stop playing this game.

I'm also going to play a little PayDay 2 and whatever else tickles my fancy.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

I'm attempting to complete and write up the 1942 turn of Pacific Tide. 
Need to finish it and move on to Mansions of Madness with the wife.

Love that song; it turned me onto Muse (and is a hoot to play in Rocksmith).

Still hoofing it around the island in GR: Breakpoint and actually trying to finish missions as opposed to just killing "baddies," in general - although with my current body count, I'm pretty sure I'm the walking war crime here.

I have always wanted to learn guitar, but, I don't want to learn to read music or put in the practice time.  I always felt Rocksmith might be a way to finally push me over the hump and just learn how to do it.  Do you like it?  And do you play it a lot?  And have you learned anything?

Gaming for me will consist of mp turns of FoG:E with Tuna and dodging tornadoes Saturday.

One year I was going to surprise my wife for Valentine's Day by learning to play one of her favorite Poison songs on guitar. I got a guitar and Rocksmith. Holy $hit. It is a lot harder than it looks!

I picked up bass years ago, but have been and always will be a "play by ear," guy.  Plus, I just noodle around for my own pleasure, so there's that too.  Having said that, you can get some honestly good stuff from Rocksmith via the various bits embedded in the program such as scale practice as a game and so on.   When playing along with any of their songs, you have options of slowing the tempo, or just replaying a portion that is difficult.  And at the end of a song, you're rated on chord/note accuracy so you can chart an actual progression too.

In addition, sites like Customsforge let you dl music that's free - but quality may vary there.  It's where I got all of my Kings of Leon stuff that wasn't in-game already, for instance.

I'm glossing over a ton of additional things due to phone posting this, but I think that Rocksmith is fantastic.
