Well Erik when? Iain when? When? when? when? My god I've only spent $38 on PC games this year what a pitiful year for gaming. Rome 2 Total War comes in Sep though that'll last about a month then what? I'm tired of remakes of remakes (Panzer Corp, Close Combat to name a few). I could go for Panzer Command: West front though or Norbsoft goes to Rome??(ancients games)

That game has been on there for ever.  Most may have given up on it.  So good luck.  I wouldn't hold your breath on this one.

Actually, we're in final beta testing - so sometime this Summer.

WooHoo sometime this summer I can't believe it. But I had saw they were looking for beta testers so that usually means a game is going to be released just not when.

Don't hold your breath I've heard this before. While I would like to see this game too I'm not getting my hopes up.

Probably wisest not to.. I don't believe anything from anyone concerning this game, either. Too much BS has been spouted from multiple sources right through it's development (or seeming mostly lack of).

I can't see why people remain bothered after Conflict of Heroes was released, anyway. You want a board-game style tactical East Front game, you can't find better than CoH and I certainly can't see HoS changing that. Anything is possible, I suppose, but in the unlikely event it does materialize this year it's going to take either a string of stellar reviews or a impressive demo (and I'm not normally a 'demo' person) for me to even consider buying it. Games with that sort of development cycle rarely turn out well.

Which year's screen shots did you have in mind?

Seriously, I'm quite happy to check out a demo or any reviews of the released game. Until then, life's too short to go chasing shadows.

The artwork and game looks like it has real potential. If it's released I'll take a closer look.

Well, if it surfaces, nice. If it doesn't, I had already given up on it anyway.

Next up on the news, we talk about the imminent release of World in Flames computer edition...

I will have you know that WIF is right on schedule and is expected to be released shortly in 2016. The hold up I'm told on that game is that they are still scanning the 500,000 counters from the original game.

yay someone on my side. I don't understand all the negativity. It's a game many have wanted for a long time in the image of Squad Leader or Advanced Squad Leader. I got CoH but I'm not enjoying it very much it doesn't feel like Squad Leader to me. This game at least looks like Squad Leader.

Hmm.. not sure Mark Walker would appreciate that much. It's actually it's a PC version of his Lock n' Load boardgames. I think most of the 'desperate for Squad Leader' crowd are now happily playing the real thing on Vassal, aren't they?

The 'negativity' has nothing to do with the game design and everything to do with the development history. As sarge said, most gave up on this years ago and it would actually be a pleasant surprise to see it available for purchase, and an even pleasanter one if it's actually worth the money.

Long time is an understatement.....I'll purchase the game if there's a demo that i can look at or if it gets great reviews from the community.... the board game is just flat out fun to play . But as for your ASL comparison , I've played both and I'm telling you there is nothing in common between the two rule sets.... your going to be disappointed if that's what your looking

Who cares about rulesets. A wargame is a wargame it's the graphics that are simular and I've seen how the action demo plays and it does play simular to Squad Leader in my book. I can see already there will be many a mod that will copy board maps and maybe even scenarios of Squad Leader and that's all I care about. I never got into Advance Squad Leader anyways. The original Squad Leader was the best.

Your right, rule sets have nothing to do with the "feel" of game play. It's all in the counter art .......

Heroes of Stalingrad plays just like the board game. Same rules, same tough choices, same tactics work... or don't.
