God I hope this game shows up soon. I follow a site the keeps me informed of ALL the DS games that come out daily (yes DS games appear daily). The trouble is, 9 of of 10 DS games should result in a clubbing for the wretch that made the software. It seems like Nintendo is so devoted to whoring it's o...

Well to be fair, the people at EGC games appear to be new on the scene, and that might tend to temper one's feelings about the review. But to look at their about us credentials, they don't seem new to wargaming. Then again, neither am I :) But I think their review was a good one all the same, and I ...

Congrats on the new game design

Let me extend a attaboy and some applause to the creators of this newest extension of the Commander design. I have greatly enjoyed the CEAW design and I am glad to see it has done well enough to generate a follow up offering. Nappy is not normally my thing, but who knows, maybe it might become one w...

The "Computers saved wargaming" debate

It's possible you have witnessed this manner of discussion, maybe even more than once and in more than one location. But current trends make me wonder if the times are a changing yet again. Do you have an old computer? Have you pondered getting XP? Are you aware that XP will soon be as welcome as 98...

What´s the point of playing solo? I´ve tried but it´s not very fun since it´s hard to surprise yourself. You could lose track of some units due the fog of war but you always know when and where you´ll attack and what kind of units do you exactly need to purchase, The "fun" of solo, is the knowing m...

It has been my observation that about 4 out of 10 DS titles are total and complete worthless crap. Then again, some titles have "complete and worthless crap" written all over them in an obvious fashion hehe. Most don't realize it, but DS cartridges can be downloaded like anything else (yes I know, i...

To those thinking once you have Panzer Tactics you don't need another, well if that was the case, why does it seem that there is an endless spiral of games out there other than Commander :) There's room for more out there than Panzer Tactics :) Plus, there's more to war than WW2. I want fighting in ...

I should mention, I was part of the team that originally beta tested the game. I have not been active in topics recently, but that is not to say I am new to the design.

Considering one is real time, the other turn based. One is non hex regions and one is hex based. One is global, and one is theatre specific. Well you either want one game or the other. Asking for a comparison is pointless. It's not bicycles or porches. It's more like comparing a boat and a helicopte...

Why does anyone assume I would assume I knew them? Of course I don't know you. And by extension I don't have the slightest clue about you in any fashion.

I feel sorry for people that can't accept, that the bland, graphically dull, entirely simple games of the 90s and earlier had less trouble with an AI than the games of today. Sorry, but the games get more complex, and as a result, the challenge of an AI becomes that much more troublesome. I was glad...

Some games will ONLY shine when you actually put them in the right light. If I had to offer a single title that was capable of offering a sufficient AI, I'd come up empty handed. But some games don't have the choice of turns, so they can't play hotseat so they can't be played human vs human. And fra...

Good comment :)

Given a choice, I think I would rather turn back the clock and get rid of computer games some days :)

But I haven't been able to do the board game thing recently. Trying to correct that.

I'm "comfortable" with WW2, it's what I know. But, my first Nintendo DS game was Age of Empires: Age of Kings, and I truly enjoy it. If the game is good, people will enjoy it. I have almost no background with Civil War or Nappy or Ancients. But if you make me a title for the DS on par with Age of Em...

Sorry Talen, I've been floggin the notion that true wargaming satisfaction is usually gained from just not letting the AI join in and play the game as both sides for ages :) If a game is not able to play hotseat mode, (so that the player can be both sides) I usually won't buy it regardless of how we...

Panzer Tactics, is it a new direction for wargaming?

I began my wargaming years with Tactics II waaaaaaay back. It led me to become an active board gaming wargamer. And the key was it was FUN damnit. But they soon lost sight of this reality and board games started to become mired in pretty detailing. Frankly I wish I could go back in time, and show th...
