Wargamer's Corner

And ... bought.

I gave up. So many people saying so many good things about the game.

EDIT: Would it make sense to start a separate thread for this game here? It feels like something we'll be talking about for a while.

went ahead and made a thread for it: https://www.gamerswithjobs.com/node/...

I grabbed Steel Division 2 over the weekend. I played 1 2v2 skirmish with AI against Medium AI. We lost, but I think it's because my AI partner dropped his flank. I need to watch the replay.

I'm going to do a few 1v1 skirmishes before diving into the Army General mode.

I like the addition to command that they made to allow more of a command and control network to be set up.

If anyone wants to set up some comp stomps, let me know! I'm not ready to play competitively yet.

I'll be a long time getting up to speed, but I did not bounce off this game like I did the previous one. Quite a relief.

I started a Steel Division 2 strategic campaign last night. It's a lot of fun! With the ability to pause the real-time battles and issue orders, SD2 is feeling like a proper war game!

Pretty good sale on some games of interest over at GoG. $24 for War in the East, same for War in the West. Deals on various Panzers Corps and Fields of Glory II.

Anybody know anything about this game: Theater Commander: The Coming Wars, Modern War Game?

It totally flew under my radar. But, for $9 I might just grab it.

That looks kind of rough... It's got what looks like a Windows 95 interface.

So, RPS is reporting that Creative Assembly has trademarked "Total War: Troy" in the UK. Discuss.

I believe that it's the next Total War "Saga" game...like Britannia (which I didn't play).

I'm not crazy about sieges, but I love Bronze Age warfare, and I'm a huge Trojan War nut

I'm cautiously interested. It's Gamelabs, so I don't have any worries about it being good. Of their upcoming games it's the one I'm least attracted to, but this looks pretty good for a very early version.

That looks fantastic! I'm in when it hits.

I've been looking for a computer version of AH's Wooden Ships & Iron Men - this looks like it!

Now that's a game I can "squee" over.

This.

Definitely keeping an eye on this one. What I want is "Jack Aubrey Simulator" but this is as close as I'm going to get to that any time soon.

Hey, this is the wargames corner. Yaoi is over there, somewhere. \vaguely concerned waving\

Hey, you fight your war and I'll fight mine. But now I'm thinking that something like Valkyria Chronicles on a ship would rock.

I think this game is a step forward, if it delivers. At least the devs have a track record.
