Have you played the Men of War games? I found them a good half-way point between CoH and the (for me) hard-to-stomach perspective and anachronistic control system of the Close Combat games.

Thanks a lot, Dreamlord!

I'd not mind a crack at Train Valley, if it's going?
Stardew Valley is a fantastic game, and supremely chilled-out. I loved what I played of it, but it really is something you're going to spend a...
Bah, came across a Thrustmaster HOTAS-X for 25 quid in my local game shop, and now having a quandry where I'm not sure whether it'll make me enjoy Elite more, or whether I'm just doing it to enjoy...

Sorry, been travelling for work. Will get in touch as soon as I'm back, and we'll try to get this party started.

Having played more than enough of Door Kickers (Enough for the longer missions to start to grate, at least), I'm tempted.
Has anyone played any of the Hexsim games at all? My initial temptation is...

Oooo, another list of wargames which I don't have time to play. Definitely jumping on here, HexWar's titles look reasonably solid, but unfortunately come with PC price-gouging as standard as well, so...

Sorry for the slow reply. There aren't any games actually going, yet, but I've got a bit more free time now. What were you thinking? There's three of us for the Year of the Emperors in Alea Jacta...

No worries moth bones. Stellar - I'm not hugely familiar with the American Civil War in general, so might take me a little to get up to speed. Would you recommend any of the smaller scenarios?

So I took my first crack at Drox Operative last night, took me 2-3 hours to conclude my first map. I remain largely unconvinced by ARPG mechanics, but the maps throw up lots of interesting narratives...
Drox Operative is about 3.70 or so on Humble for those who have enjoyed Vinraiths stories but couldn't justify it at full price.

Thanks for writing that, Internet. I'd second it being a main page article, really good work.
I don't know much about availability of data, but one of the things I'd be interested in is how much...

No worries - I hope you get well soon :)

Just finished it, actually. I got more out of it than Stanley Parable, which to me felt like a lash out at the games industry disgused as a cruel joke which I didn't find particularly funny. I don't...

I've toyed with picking this up as a curio more than anything else, as I love this kind of product. Is it in any way approachable for someone that has only a very basic knowledge of programming, and...
I haven't watched the video yet, but given that I'm someone who has repeatedly toyed with getting into Battletech (I'm a sucker for simulationist games at heart), this sounds great. Battletech...

No problem - still able to do it by normal email, if you fancy it? It seems the best way to do it is to email everything over in a zip file to the second player, who does their orders and runs the...

I think I might actually jump on this one, as Lovers looks like (and reviewed as) a great couch co-op game, and looks like the kind of thing my girlfriend would like. As a bonus, I have a bit of a...

Fancy giving the four emperors a crack as a way of seeing how this whole shebang works? Looks reasonably short, and seems to have a good reputation as a beginner scenario on the AGEOD forums. I was...

Top post updated with a spreadsheet for people to add their names to/modify etc.

Been browsing the AGEOD forums, and it seems there's a few scenarios in AJE which are suited to three players or more. I'll take a look at specifics to see which ones are suited, but will try to keep...
09-08-2016, 12:09 PM
A bump for those that jumped on the last AGEOD bundle and would consider a game or three? I went in at the highest tier (mostly for Thirty Years' War), but would love to play through some smaller...

Fantastic! I might have to resurrect my attempt at PBEM thread if plenty of people jumped on. I've finally managed to get round to playing some of the shorter scenarios in Rise of Prussia, and think...

Glad it was helpful - if you're jumping in with Rise of Prussia, there's a tutorial AAR that most people seem to refer to a lot:

I think for me, finishing games is the exception rather than the rule, even for those I 'take seriously' in terms of actually playing them for a while. Endless games aside, this is particularly true...
