Re: Battle Academy 2 gets a release date!

Great news of course. Inevitable as the sun rising is me being grumpy on that date. Because my needing to buy glasses the other day was like salt in my financial wounds of late. I will of course be trying to move heaven and earth to locate the funds so I can get it anyway. Maybe I will just not eat ...

Re: Where's does our money go?

I am reliably informed that it provides the needed funds to make it possible for staff to go to Comicon each year.

And when sales are really good, then also get to go to Gencon.

Why else would anyone make wargames?

Re: Chiming in

Sounds like you experienced what I encountered with my early release Asus epad Transformer as it did as much as what your tablet did, while my Asus Nexus 7 was ok.

Re: Question on Kindle HDX 8.9

This night not fully answer your question, but, I know this much. The Android beta of Frontline Road to Moscow will not run on my Asus epad Transformer while it will on my Asus Nexus 7. So there are more requirements for some games than just access to the OS (in this case Android latest version). Th...

Re: Young people need to be converted from COD to proper gam

I am not really surprised that wargaming has done very little to encourage the young to be interested. Too much of wargaming has for too long been dominated for too long by miserable old buggers who simply refuse to entertain anything other than themselves and their own agendas. Games like ASL are n...

Re: Young people need to be converted from COD to proper gam

On a side note, I play "World of Tanks" (essentially a FPS but you are driving a tank) and have noticed that the "CoD crowd" frequently dies early -- and uselessly. I am sure they are good at shooting enemy tanks but WoT emphasizes maneuver, deception, timing and (sometimes unspoken) team coordinat...

Re: Steam release schedule

So what's the difference in buying games from here or from steam ? If non what is the point? Steam is exposure to new markets and new faces. Not everyone knows of Slitherine Group (sad as that is). I think it is personally a major perk and a very generous act that Slitherine Group extends free Stea...

Re: New Strategy Titles Join the Family

This is good news. I consider Vic one of my fav developers.

The Small General game and the expansion Eastern Front are very playable and I consider them the gold standard of tablet wargames that I measure everything else against.

Jeff, I have Clash of Armour Redux waiting for you if you wish. It's a fairly basic map. I'll PM you a password to type in if you are interested. You are the Axis.

Re: Sigh, zero post count opponents

Wise idea Enric (the name list). I just surrendered a match I had going, I was being totally owned :) But, I gave a response, a congrats to my opponent and a request for a fresh match. I didn't just not play any more. I am also playing in some other matches, and I am doing ok in them. I hope my oppo...

Re: Unified Login system?

Well, I am not experiencing 'login issues' per se, I am experiencing frustration though in retention issues. There is a limit to how long a person will not mind a window popping up to remind me to log in especially when I check the box indicating I wish to be remembered and am not. This is a Slither...

Send a PM with a game(s) name(s), and a password and we are good to go. Pick anything you wish either side. I can handle more than one game too, I am currently fielding a couple of opponents in 3 maps. I can handle more :) I play on average a round of turns often every few hours (or as often as I am...

Sigh, zero post count opponents

Throwing out this challenge to any and all. Come meet me in a game, any map, I can play them all, I have all the expansions. But if you want to offer me a game, at least offer to let me know why you want to take a pass on any game underway. I just played a map I haven't played for a while, but I've ...

Frontline RTM vs the competition (the real test)

Ok the game was produced for iOS long enough back that it has in my opinion, likely seen more than a bit of what I call design tweak beta testing to a point. So I have mostly been concerned with has the port to Android been 'successful' and what are the results of it on various types of hardware. I ...

Dueling devices (my Transformer vs Nexus 7)

Ok so I have two devices and that means I have two sources of input. Currently the Asus Transformer is showing a potential shortfall in device power potentially. It crashes seemingly about the same point, and it is not specific to a particular action. So it is not really seeming to be something I ca...

Re: Any teens here?

I think there is a fundamental difference between a serious wargamer, and a serious wargame :) My first game was Tactics II, but I was seriously hooked on serious challenges. Then it was Midway, and after that Squad Leader and Third Reich. Generally a serious wargame will demand a wargamer be a seri...

Chiming in

Hmm looks like I might be here first. So anyway, the plan is to take it for a spin on my two tablets. I am equipped with a 1st gen 10" Asus Trasnsformer and a 1st gen Asus Nexus 7. They are both running Android 4.4.4 on them. I tend to do all my file management on the laptop through Google Play and ...

Re: To board or not to board (game)

It has been a very rough season for my 'board games'. I have gone from putting them on shelves and making them feel valued, to essentially putting them on notice I will sell them in a heart beat if my price is met. But all is not fully well with computer wargames either. Sort of.... Today, June of 2...
