My Latest Order... and other Randomness
- Age of Conan
- Memoir '44 Campaign Book 1
- End of the Triumvirate
- Formula D: Chicago / Sebring Track
Yeah, I'm too lazy to insert BGG hyperlinks. Age of Conan, now that I've read the rules at FFG, looks to me to be quite a bit of fun, with possibly almost as much thematic table talk as BSG, by Crom!
Speaking of BSG... nah... too many spoilers. My wife keeps teasing me about watching robot smut.
Memoir '44 Campaign book, with ~50 linked scenarios seems to be the holy grail for fans of the game. Now if they'd just add undead to BattleLore and link the two games....
Speaking of which, I saw where a new Nazi Zombie level is about to be released for CoD:WaW. I need to play more of this.
Unfortunately, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix has been a tad delayed on XBL and is getting mediocre reviews from the PC crowd. Bummer!
The place where I work is declaring an in-the-office "fun day" for April 1st and playing board games all day is actively encouraged. I think this must all be a dream... You have to love working for the federal government. Thanks for the tax dollar-supported gaming! I need to go talk to that nerd down the hall with all the painted Mech miniatures in his cube to see what he has cooking.
I've actually finished studying Paths of Glory, and Mark and I are kicking off a PBEM game. If Brian is up for it, I'll even start a second game.
Having resolved to hold off until Fall (or until Diablo III and/or Star Craft 2 are too tough to resist) to upgrade my PC gaming rig, I'm going back to play more Civ IV, Company of Heroes, Medieval Total War 2, and Dawn of War I. All are still good fun. Multiplayer, anyone?
My loyal Angband character snuffed it on Level 34 via nasty, poison-breathing hydra. I made the fatal mistake of getting lazy about buying enough potions, and the unforgiving game taught me yet another cruel lesson. Back to level 1....
Okay, that's probably enough silliness for one post. I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
