Installing observation for Storm of Steel

This might be a me specific problem, but, I have had no small amount of trouble with it until I took the decision to segregate the installs of Awakening the Bear and Ghost Divisions from the install of Storm of Steel. They label Ghost Divisions a 'stand alone' expansion, but, it must be installed AF...

Re: wargamers to real war

Sadly the entry requirements for the Canadian Armed Forces have become similarly dreadful as well ie they have gotten stiff on the education requirement, but really appalling what they will allow for physical qualifications.

Re: wargamers to real war

I dont think the average gamer has the mental of physical endurance to survive on the battlefield....let alone lead Soldiers. Well actually, I have no numbers, but, I DO know of a great many gamers who are also veterans. I don't thinking playing games makes you trained for combat, but, it is possib...

Re: Scotland referendum

I come from a unique perspective. I'm Gunn clan, only a couple of generations out of Scotland, I was born In Quebec. Somehow Scotland separating likely has about as much value as Quebec separating. No one wins, everyone loses something and the pretend gains are likely imaginary. But that's democracy...

Re: Money well spent

Played my first Skirmish game, and I think I recall you having said somewhere Pip, and I would be inclined to agree, the Skirmish mode aspect likely will make the game a viable purchase all on it's own. I played German 1941 and thought I might have a chance, but dang going up against a couple of KV2...

Money well spent

Kudos to all that did the early access thing and in the process aided in the product evolution to today. Just played the tutorial and really there is no new learning curve if you are not new to Battle Academy. I'm sure there is more under the hood I simply have not seen yet. But my vote goes to this...

Re: Singleplayer vs Multiplayer mode

I grew up playing board games solo, frankly the main reason I like computer wargames is they don't attract dust and are easier to store. In 20 years of wargaming on a machine, I have yet to experience an AI that wasn't dumber or more useless than a half wit. But the moment you mention AIs you get al...

Re: Battle Academy 2 Out now!

Re: Something Not Eurocentric?

I can relate to the OPs plight. One suggestion is to play a nation in Civ and pick settings that are so utterly not what was the actual course of human history. Good example play something decidedly not European origins and in a world very hot wet and rainforest like with very limited ferrous materi...

Re: Android Crushes iOS

If I could go back in time, I'd likely have spent the too much extra and bought an iPad. But that's it basically. Anything Apple sells in hardware, the other guys are selling for 2/3s the price, and currently the hardware is as good as anything Apple is making. I buy the hardware that does the job a...

Re: Slitherine Group acquires Shenandoah Studio

Good news as wargaming goes :)

I don't have access to an Apple tablet, so I have missed out on the iOS market's games, but I'm at least aware there are some good titles out there.

It's always a good day when the market's games gain strength in numbers.

Re: Has anyone played Panzer Tactics HD?

I only know it from the original Nintendo DS experience.

But from what I know of both games, they have a similar dynamic in that the games play like time sensitive puzzle challenges of strategy.

My current matches are all coming to a close progressively. Been a few matches I have seriously dropped the ball on :) A few I had not played yet (and it showed hehe).

Re: I Want a Sandcastle, Not a Competitive Excercise

A very interestingly put argument in favour of non turn based :) Myself, I find real time's biggest flaw, is there is nothing real about the way it uses time at all. Not that I find turn based more 'real', but I have never claimed it was. But I like the Chess like aspect. I like the ability to exami...

Re: wargamers to real war

Been thinking of this thread. Maybe 50 years ago some of our wargame designs might have had some utility value in training. But today's battlefield is dominated by real time communications technology in such density right down to the individual soldier level, and the political apparatus can be so co...

3 Nintendo DS games up for sale (from me that is)

Thanks to life making my eyes older and no longer quite interested in playing on my Nintendo DSi XL which in 2006 seemed like an alright idea, I have had to discontinue playing Nintendo DS games. Alas, I have likely the 3 best titles from my collection unable to be traded in at the local EB Games. T...

Re: wargamers to real war

I've been in uniform.

It would depend entirely on the specific game being commented on.

Some games teach you nothing about real warfare and provide only entertainment (which is often all they were meant to do).
