I'm thinking of getting.

Schwerpunkts World War II Europe.
And CMANO

I like the look of both. I have wanted CMANO for awhile, but always talked myself out of spending the money.

I've really slowed down on acquiring PC games at the moment, I have too many as it is. Though if there is a really good sale on Total War: Warhammer or a few other games on my wishlist, I might pick them up.

I am looking forward to the release of Comancheria from GMT Games. Should be a rather epic solo board game to tackle over the cold months. It has you controlling the Comanche tribe over the course of almost two hundred years, dealing with war, culture, technology, etc. The same developer did Navajo Wars, a somewhat similar game, and it has rave reviews but isn't in print for the foreseeable future.

I think I may want to get a VR headset of some variety, but still doing research on that.

That does sound interesting. I don't usually play board games, but I've been kind of thinking of getting into them.

Seems kind of expensive. I don't figure on getting TOO much into them.

I will try not to get much, I have many games to play, but I will buy a game or two from Matrix mostly will be CSME and Tigers on the Hunt.
From steam I have around 40 games on my wishlist, so it depends on how much I want the game and the discount rate of it.

This year I've bought bunch of games and played only about half of them, many of them just handful of hours. Right now I spend hours a day with Civ4: BTS Caveman 2 Cosmos. One more turn...

Nothing - I'm sorted for the holidays .

I have MWIF of course that I continue to play, and on a whim have just bought Strategic Command WWII War In Europe.

Early days with the latter but I have to say I am really pleased with Strategic Command. These two games should keep me company over the Christmas period.

I seriously doubt I will be buying any new PC games--I already have such a large backlog that I don't believe I will ever play all the games I currently own.

But I might buy a new gaming computer if the price is right. The one I have is six years old and is in the shop right now.

i have bought alot of old games of late and they are awesome!

Dawn Patrol
Action Stations
Blue Max
Rules of Engagement
Warship
Sub Battle Simulator
Panthers in the Shadows
Flying Corps Gold
and more

of newer games Wings over Flanders Fields will be the one for me next i think - just ordered Combat Flight Simulator 3 as a prerequisite!

i am not sure when they are coming out but Sanctus Reach, Wars of Succession and TOAW IV would be the Matrix ones for me to get!

I play a multitude of things. At 64 years old I think my gaming days are getting slimmer. I just can't find anything interesting.
Played WOW since about 2007, latest expansion is meh. Just too many years to find this game exciting any longer.
Diablo 3, played for 3 years, just can't play it anymore. Grim Dawn, the same.
Tried the Mass Effect trilogy again, boring the second time through...
Tried Divinity, original sin, nope...
Tried Galactic Civilizations 3, what a waste of money.
Flashpoint Campaigns, good game system, but limited scenario time frames all based on a what if that never happened. Lost interest for now, but I watch the forum for expansion news.
Waiting for release of Operational Art of War IV, with the fixes to turn burn and expansion of the map size this could be ok for awhile.
Looking at Command: Modern Naval and Air, Looks ok, pricey for my budget, so I hesitate because I gotten so many crappy games lately.

Pretty sure I'm in a big rut in my gaming life (which spans 35 or so years).

What I would really like to see (and I won't in my lifetime) is a real good Science Fiction wargame. Not a rock paper scissors style (which they all are right now). Something like a hybrid between War in the Pacific and Command: Modern Naval and Air.

But as far as Matrix goes, TOAW IV and Flashpoints next release are on my list. Possibly Command: Modern Naval and Air.

Yeah at 64 I'm in a rut for gaming. Might be due to my age as they sure don't cater gaming to my age group! Ha!




I don't think it's your age, sounds like you are are true game lover. You should check the "Indie" genre of games. It covers alot of different topics but you will probably find some that are quite good. Steam is a good place to start the search...

Don't feel pregnant mine is 8 years old almost 9 bought back in June of 2008 with Vista 64 OS no less. It's been a good one though (knock on wood....wood where's my wood?? Where's Catan when you need it. )

If anyone is looking for a fun board game like strategy game try to find Gremlins Inc. on sale these holidays. It's the strangest but most fun cutthroat board game to PC game I've ever played. It's akin to monopoly in movement (not construction though) and you use the same cards you play for points and profit as you do for movement. I'd bet nickels to dollars you find yourself screaming at the monitor from game to game. It has so many aspects of life's elements in it, you even get to goto "hell"

@Grognerd...I'm basically in the same rut you are been that way for awhile now and I think you would like Gremlins Inc. It's different and the AI is quite good and ruthless. You'll kick your dog over it. (not really but it's that good)

I don't think Wars of Succession will be out for Christmas.

I won't be buying any more PC games ... unless I see an offer (massive discount) that is too good to ignore. I never seem to have enough time to play the games I already have.

Was hoping to see TOAWIV out by Christmas but i think we will be lucky to even see some screen shots of it by then lol.
May consider GGWITW if it has a massive discount.

@Grognard
If your after a Sci-Fi wargame take a look at Sid Miers Alpha Centauri, its not strictly a "wargame" its a 4X game but its awesome and closet i can think of that might fit the bill as a SciFi Wargame.
Also you might want to check out Dominions 4 by Illwinter Games its a fantasy war/boardgame, probably the best game of its type to be honest not discounting the legendary Master of Magic from 30 years ago.

Really? I imagine it would require reading and understanding of English, so it won't be for my sister's children yet. Her oldest (5-6 years or so) has just learned to read little of Finnish (our native language). My first thought was to buy the game on my account, download it on to USB memory device, and hand that over on Christmas eve. But it looks like it would be better if she (sister) makes an account on GOG or Steam and I gift the game over on her account instead. How large is the game? Does it take hours to download?

With a fast connection, it's a quick download.

Just grabbed board games Conan and Axis & Allies 1942 from CSI. Waiting to see what GMT Games does, so I can see what Matrix games I need to round out the collection/obsession. Really $uck$ doing PC games and Board games- Just glad it is spread out over 2-3 months here with Matrix Games, helps explaining to the wife.

I'm looking for a Normandy invasion game at the regimental level that doesn't have weekly turns. Hex's and a way to mod the German supply and replacement levels to a higher level when I'm playing the Allies. I tried playing Tillers Panzer Campaigns Normandy 44 and didn't mind the Battalion level too much. But that UI is horrific and after a few weeks playing I gave it up.

Anyone have any ideas?
Be safe out there,
Whipple

I do believe I will pick up the WiTW expansion. And maybe the To End All Wars expansion. Additions to earlier post.
