Unlike some, I was not too concerned about the price and was dead keen to get BFTB but I have had to wait till last Saturday to download my copy, due to lack of finances.
Although my history is bad on the matter, I have made myself a promise to thoroughly know and understand this title.
My resolution results from a realization that I do have a lot of games/simulations but have spent too much money (I haven’t any) & too little time on any of them. I have for example:
RDOA, HTTR, COTA & now BFTB.
TOAW3, WITP, WITPAE, WW2ToW, JTCS, AT, Kharkov+Dnepr, BF, BII ,Harpoon ANW, HCE & etc. from Matrix plus many from other sources (e.g. Armageddon Empires, WC-NAW, SAS-WW2, CMBO/BB/AK &…………, oh dear! The list does go on.
Most of these aren’t bad titles. They deserve more time than I’ve managed to apply to them.
Every time though, I spend more time browsing & generally stuffing around reading (mostly Matrix & Wargamer) Forums on the Net than actually spending quality time on gaming. Plus there are all the interruptions that RL and having 5 kids gets one.
It’s time to stop tinkering!!!
BFTB deserves that I learn it properly. It (and its predecessors) is, I believe, particularly my type of game. I’m so glad it was able to be produced in today’s market.
I will, again, look at all tutorial movies (nice job, guys) & properly read the manuals &, for a change, I will give this game exclusive attention and play scenarios over & over until I feel I have a grasp of the game.
Then, who knows, I may do the same for another game (Kharkov/Dnepr would have to be next). And, yes, one day I may convert to M.P.
But by then there’ll be WITE, WIF ….aaaaaaaahhhh!!! ….. I don’t have the time.
Anyway, BFTB it is!!! Forward march!
A promise to myself.
BTW, surely others have these problems?
