Grogheads Previews Field of Glory: Empires – Part Deux!

FOGE

Now to the heart of the matter. After reviewing the 50+ factions presently available, I chose Pontus, mostly because they are a faction I have never played with in any similar strategy game, but have always had an interest in, and also because Field of Glory: Empires (“FogE”) rates them a ‘3’ on difficulty and interest. To me, that is a good fit for my first campaign.

Want to see something cool? Come a little closer. Check these out.  No not those…these here…these are some primo Field of Glory – Empires (FogE) screenshots. Yes, we know…Slitherine and Ageod won’t be releasing FogE until July 11th, but we here at Grogheads know people and we were able to score some code early. If you are planning on picking up FogE upon release, you will definitely be interested in these shots.

Grogheads Takes a Look at Field of Glory 2 DLC – Wolves at the Gate!

One of the things I truly love about Field of Glory 2 is the unit artwork, which I find really attractive, reminding me of the prettier sorts of ancient table top armies that I used to play with back in the day before my computer dominated the gaming scene. So here’s a nostalgic look at a sample selection of armies to showcase what one can expect with this particular DLC. In particular I have chosen some of the more iconic armies of the period, which extends the game timeline from the 7th Century (when the Age of Belisarius DLC starts to peter out) into the early 11th century at around 1040AD.

The next installment for Field of Glory II is coming and nobody will be able to stem the tide. According to our contacts at Slitherine, Wolves at the Gate “depicts the epic struggles that newly forked European kingdoms had to face for their survival during the ‘Dark Ages’, a long period of recurrent conflicts that eventually gave birth to Europe.

Panzer Campaigns: Japan ’45 – A Grogheads AAR

Japan45

The latest, hot off the press game from John Tiller Software is Panzer Campaigns Japan ’45. It covers the planned, though never actually launched, invasion of the island of Kyushu code-named Operation Olympic. Kyushu is one of the main islands in Japan and its capture was deemed a priority essential as a jumping off point to the invasion of the rest of the Japanese home islands. It fortunately never came to pass as Japan surrendered in August 1945 following defeats throughout the Pacific, military collapse in China and Manchuria, a declaration of war followed by a blitzkrieg from the Soviet Union, and to cap it off, atomic bombing of their cities by the USA. They were in a really bad place with no way of achieving strategic victory.
