My name's Jonathan, 14 years of age and from Australia.
Well, I never really had any past wargame experiences but I use to play all these strategy games like C&C, StarCraft and the such. Anyways, back in '06, I was looking at a bunch of CDs my Dad had stacked around and that's when I found a PowerPlay DVD with case. Along with a bunch of other demos and trailers, a full game came with it, that game being SPWAWGE
I was really excited to try it out, after all the name was very appealing and the little tiny icon preview looked very interesting to play.
When I started my first tutorial, I was stunned, to think that there was actually a game like this, it's the first I'd seen in my life.
Sadly, I wasn't that sort of kid that wanted to know how to work things fast and SPWAW was hard for me to understand, with all it's menus, words etc. (Which is good and what I like about this game). I merely just moved my units and tried to find the enemy, didn't even bother with objectives. So, I left the game and just continued doing my other stuff.
During that year, on and off I actually wanted to play the game again but knowing me, I'd lost the copied CD and could never play it. And I didn't want to risk getting capped or something downloading the version of MatrixGames.com
During last year, I'd found the DVD but I could never bring myself up to install it,I don't really know why. Now this year, yesterday, I installed it again. Being again amazed by the game, was excited to get back into it.
That's about it
