Though when I think Space Rangers 2 i think of one of the best games ever ;).

Oh, I'll agree there. It's just that the translation was SOOOO terrible for that game (seriously, the mission texts were so garbled that it left one wondering what the heck was going on). I am sure there will be a demo of XIIIth Century, and I'll be on that like... well... something on something it should be on.

SoM

At least it will look authentic for the Russian side ;).

I remember a roleplaying group where they insisted on using Old English as standard
communication method to make it sound more "authentic". That basically filtered out us "stupid" from joining too.

I hope the strategic layer holds up.

Becides. I thought someone who lives in New York was used to crappy English ;).

But can you write ;).

Looking at release schedules for 2008 I wonder if the Russians aren't the
actual salvation to PC strategy gaming. They seem to be the only ones
releasing deeper games nowadays (in addition to Matrixgames and a few others).

I will in fact have myself a drink of Vodka to celebrate that :).

Btw. One way to remedy bad spelling would be if companies like Matrixgames
picked up a few potential Russian gems. The dedicated community here will make short work of any spelling mistakes ;).

Marcusm, where are you getting your info about releases for 2008, I hadn't even heard of XIII Century: Death or Glory until you mentioned it on the forum. I may be able to speak ye olde Englishe but it seems I am falling behind the times on pc releases.

Gamershell is a very good place for gaming news. Eurogamer/IGN/Wargamer/RPGVault etc are good for additional info.

As a bonus Gamershell has very fast download speeds for demos etc so I would keep that book marked.

I typically take the "rounds" during short breaks/lunch etc.

Well, it probably means a) There are no such plans b) There are but they are not ready to talk about them yet.

That Russian game looks good meanwhile. I belive in Mother Russia :D.

Re Blood and Iron....I think that lovely Erik has listened to all our comments carefully and searched the world for that ultimate Medieval game, a turn based game with the graphics of MTW2, depth of Crusader Kings and the ynamics of Kingmaker....Lets all hear it. A BIG THANK YOU TO ERIK.......you aren't going to let us down are you?????? please [&o]

Would that be "The Teutonic Knights" programmed by Helmuth von Moltke with chief designer Otto von Bismarck?

Yeah, I'm almost positive Blood and Iron is referring to a 19-20th century German Unification and WWI game (which would be cool too).

Nice comment Ironclad, I could just see Otto von Bismarck developing a game. It would be "Realspiel" and all of the design strategy would be to accomodate future expansions. [;)]

Actually, Bismarck designed wars much like games, so this isn't too far from the mark...

How about a remake of Kingmaker then? Superb boardgame so so adaption.
Well no, not a remake but a game resembling Kingmaker ;).

How about Medieval Kingdoms,that old SSI game?
Or maybe it was Medieaval Lords, forgot the exact name but it was
the best attempt until Lords of the Real arrived, then CK.

A game combining the best of those three would be a winner :).

I spent many an hour back-stabbing friends in Kingmaker. What a game!

I too cry out for a Medieval game!! Total War is great, but Matrix would certainly do it better.

Kingmaker was a great game in its time. There are too few medieval wargames. Notice in another thread Commander Napoleon at War to be released in July. May be a good game maybe not, but its another Napoleonic game. I feel like I've personally fought that era. Lets have variety, Matrix games in progress this year just dont seem to have that variety. I may be wrong and that we will be in for some surprises later in the year but ancient and medieval dont seem to be represented (Legion Arena Gold just doesn't count).

Yeah and Legion Gold was out a longgggggggggggggggg time ago even before Matrixgames picked it up so it don't count either as a NEW TITLE. Even HPS came out with something new in PUNIC WARS, but, of course that AI sucks the high noodles. We need KOIOS to make it or the Western Civilization group. ;)
WE/I WANT 1:1 or something even 1:2 death animations in the KOIOS PANZER COMMAND SERIES don't forget Erik! ;) and Floating Paratroopers We grew up with Minor, Marginal and Decisive victories why rock the boat with Marginal, Decisive and Legendary?
