Adam Parker -> What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 4:39:30 AM)

All being well and the economy finds its bounce sometime next year (I still haven't worked out who put their hand up and said "hey isn't it time we had a recession" in the first place), the proposed wargame release schedule for a few companies can be deduced and here is what I'm planning for the new year including current titles I don't yet own:

PC Wargames

Battles from the Bulge (Matrix - Panther)
Lock 'n Load Heroes of Stalingrad (Matrix - Lock n' Load)

Board Wargames

Commands and Colors 4 Imperial Rome (GMT - Borg)
Commands and Colors 5 Epic Ancients (GMT - Borg)
Washington's War (GMT - Herman)
Fields of Fire Solitaire (GMT - Hull)
Noville Bastogne's Oupost (LnL - Herzner)
A Ring of Hills Falklands (LnL - Walker) - damned sexy looking game!
Heroes of the Blitzkrieg France 1940 (LnL - Revenu)
World at War Blood and Bridges (LnL - Snyder)
World at War Operation Garbo Sweden (LnL - Idelman)
Nations at War White Star Rising (LnL - Walker)
Corps Command Dawns Early Light (LnL - Bogdasarian)
Corps Command Totensonntag - (LnL - Bogdasarian)

It'll be a year of finding what I like in a system, looking for quality and dependability. Hopefully with some stability in the economy, we can all continue to be awed by clever designers in the hobby we love. Happy 2009.

Adam.

Battles From the Bulge.

Prince of Eckmühl -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 5:58:06 AM)

WitP-AE and anything from Panther Games or Koiosworks.

PoE (aka ivanmoe)




06 Maestro -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 6:36:40 AM)

1.Battle from the Bulge.
2. HOI 3.

That should do it for me. In a week I will have FOF, and JT Campaign Series. Those, along with the recent WW1 title, should keep me properly entertained for the next year.
If we have a depression, I may have to break out some old board games to kill some time.

Edit: I just noticed that Jutland (SES) was just released. That is a "possible" buy-not a must buy.




Hertston -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 7:33:11 AM)

Battles from the Bulge and the CMSF Brits module are the only certainties for me. I'll probably get WitP-AE if the price is sensible (I'm not paying forty quid for it), and maybe 'Les Grognards' should it be actually turn out to be more than vapourware. The 2 by 3 East Front game is another must-buy, but in my experience "2009 or 2010" means 2010 at the earliest!




Lützow -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 8:32:20 AM)

WitP AE, BftB, Bombing the Reich, WiF, new 2by3 title, HoI 3, Silent Hunter V ...

Depends on what actually get released in 2009.




JamesM -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 8:37:22 AM)

Witp AE, Bombing of the Reich, WiF and the new 2by3 Eastern Front game




U2 -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 10:39:23 AM)

Anything by SSG. Really looking forward to ATD II...it's what wargaming is all about.

WITP: AE

Anything 2by3

2-3 MC and PzC from HPS

I'll be busy playtesting the new War in Russia so there won't be too much time to play other games.




JudgeDredd -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 11:16:11 AM)

2by2 East Front game
Battles of the Bulge
Heroes of Stalingrad




Marc von Martial -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 12:17:57 PM)

On my list for 2009 is to actually find some time and play the wargames I already have here [;)]




RedArgo -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 1:13:44 PM)

Crown of Glory Emperor's Edition

I should probably take a leaf out of your book Marc. I have plenty of games I've dabbled in and none I've mastered!

I just get really attracted to "shiny new"! Not a trait I'm proud of [:-]




Arsan -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 1:31:55 PM)

From Matrix, Battles from the Bulge is a sure buy [&o]
From AGEOD, i have two candidates for 2009: Rise of Prussia and Vainglory of Nations (not strictly a wargame).
And i will probably get Stardock's Elemental open beta too (That's definitely not a wargame [;)]).
Regards




Erik Rutins -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 2:05:59 PM)

Don't forget the upcoming Crown of Glory: Emperor's Edition, which looks set to be one of the most exciting Napoleonic releases in years.

That's all fine for 2009, but is there still a Matrix cat in the bag for 2008 I wonder ? [;)]

It would be a wonderful thing if it popped out of the Matrix oven a day or two before Christmas.....But I assume that bundle of joy is a 2009 delivery




Erik Rutins -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 3:47:45 PM)

I'm afraid Hired Guns is the last release from us this year, but next year has some really big ones getting very close to release.




Kuokkanen -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 3:50:14 PM)

WITP-AE
Battles from the Bulge

wishlist
A mech based tactical turn based wargame (like battletech)

bradfordkay -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 7:42:10 PM)

WitP-AE is #1 on my list.

I will also buy BotR sometime in the upcoming year as well, if it is released.

COG:EE absolutely cannot come out in the waning days of 2008. The good news, though, is that we do have those ship graphics, and it won't be too long before I can start showing them to you.




Eastern -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 8:19:49 PM)

There all sort of wargames or strategy-games I would like to buy, but when do they get released ??
Take WIF , how many years more ?? I think thet are working on it for 5 years now, it will be old by the time it is finished, if it will be finished !! There is no news for almost a year now.
And WitP-AE was scheduled for last year, now no more news about release-dates , sounds pretty scary if you ask me.
Lets hope folks (and if somebody know some release-dates let me know too)

GShock -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 8:42:56 PM)

BotB...definitely...if i find time to play Cota at least! [;)]




thegreatwent -> RE: What's on Your Wargame List for 2009? (12/12/2008 10:04:41 PM)

WitP-AE is my biggest focus, I might check out Bombing the Reich if I have some extra shekels.

There is not much info yet given the imminent release of CoG EE.

I may consider to pick it up as I don't own any napoleonic era game so far, but would like to gain more insight into economy, building options, logistics, diplomacy and how this title compare to FoF. The two beta AAR's are not meaningful regarding this points and after all I'm primarily interested in the strategy aspect.
