Armchair Dragoons Reviews Compass Games’ Pacific Tide

Armchair Dragoons Reviews Compass Games’ Pacific Tide

Michael Eckenfels, 6 April 2020

Arguably, the conflict in the Pacific during World War 2 was one of the more complex campaigns that anyone could attempt to simulate, whether in computer or board game format. Some give such a great amount of detail that it almost slows things down to a crawl, while others are extremely simple and easy to play. Pacific Tide from Compass Games is definitely a simpler simulation of this war, which brings a vast campaign into a manageable and enjoyable format. More importantly, it can be played in one sitting. Even better, it’s not just a two-player game; either side can be played solo too.

Battle Lab: Uses for (Professional) Wargaming

Battle Lab: Uses for (Professional) Wargaming

Seeing a new way to do things ~

Brant, 31 March 2020

The professionals talk about wargaming in very different terms than the casual hobbyists do. Don’t get me wrong, the professionals know the difference between a hobby or game and their jobs. Most of them also wargame for fun, and have a huge knowledge of the hobby. But for casual wargamers the professional uses of wargames mainly seem like two cases, and an occasional third.

More Recon of Lock ‘n Load Tactical Digital

More Recon of Lock ‘n Load Tactical Digital

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 26 March 2020

We all know about the Steam delay in pushing out the LNLT-Digital game, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop teasing you.

First off, we do want to note that LNLP now has their own Steam publisher community. (In case you didn’t know, we’re on there, too!)

Second, we know that it probably wasn’t very nice of us to tease you with screenshots of a module that’s not even been announced yet in the initial LNLT-Digital release, as Heroes of the Red Star isn’t supposed to be in that launch.  To make it up to you, we’re going to do it again!

Here’s some screenies from the Falklands scenarios.

Armchair Dragoons PAO, 24 March 2020

As a result of a Steam policy, the LNLT-Digital release has been slightly delayed.  Per a note from The David himself

Lock ‘n Load Tactical Digital Steam release date had to be changed to April 2, 2020, at 1:00 PM. Steam had approved our original release date but all releases must wait 10 days after approval. So the official release date is now April 2, 2020.

Never fear!  We’ve snuck into the system and snagged a couple of exclusive preview images for you to salivate over, so enjoy these recon peeks.

Note that Heroes of the Red Star is not part of the initial digital release, as far as we can tell. So this is a double-sneak peek. You’re welcome!
