I'm tempted, but fifteen bucks seems like a lot for them...mainly as I don't hardly have time to play computer games any more.

It is very X-Com like combat-wise so if you liked X-Com I think you will like this. My only word of caution is that the campaign is fairly short. They did just release new DLC but I don't have it so I can't comment on what it adds. IMO the base game is worth $21.

You might want to skip this then. It is very much like the reboot in terms of "trigger hexes". I haven't replayed any of the missions so I'm not sure if the enemies always react the exact same way.

The Pacific War war game?

First edition rules were a disaster. If they have the second edition, which is supposed to be a better translation then you might take a chance on this as an updated look at what was Victory in the Pacific

Yeah.  I added a couple of LnL expansions to the cart.  Even with the sale prices and the Kickstarter bonus coupon, it’ll still cost me more than buying from my usual guy in Calgary once shipping costs are factored in.   If I ship it to my PO Box in Washington, it’s about $10 cheaper but the border lines are getting insane right now.  I drove down yesterday to pick up some Cruel Seas minis I’d ordered recently.  2 hour wait at the border...at 1 pm on a Thursday.  No more cross border trips for me until I get my NEXUS pass.  Got my interview with DHS in August.

I wish I had a local store to buy LnLT games from. Right now I'm sitting on the fence and the only thing holding me back is the fact that shipping is almost the price of an entire game. What a bummer!

There's a Magic / Euro game shop in town. I've never seen a single war game in stock nor have I ever seen one being played when I go in for game night. Do you know who they use as a distributor? I'll ask if they have an account with them the next time I go in.

Not sure. I know there was a problem with a distributor under the previous ownership but I don't know if it's ever been sorted out.

I know our local wargame shop here has trouble getting stuff in stock from them and their primary business is wargames

Miniature Market has SHAEF on their daily drop sale.  Price drops by 4%/day until it sells or they pull it.

It's $36.35 right now.  I picked up a copy a few months back and finally had a chance to play it a few weeks ago.  It's core mechanic is a pretty neat concept but it does tend to be very unwieldy with all the seperate decks of cards you have to keep organized and keep track of.

My opponent and I both enjoyed it enough that we want to try it again.

BGG rates this at a 4.3 and most everyone says how terrible the rules are. I take it the rules were not an issue to you guys?
Title: Re: Consolidated Games-on-Sale Thread
Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on August 20, 2019, 02:59:49 PM
The rules are not bad.  They could be a bit clearer and the extended example is hey used was not the best choice as it illustrated the first turn which uses special rules rather than a typical turn but they are nowhere near as bad as people on BGG make out.  As long as you’re familiar with army structure and conversant with western front  WWII history, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Took a look the other day at reviews and the table space required looks pretty unwieldy with all those cards.  Care to share any thoughts on the game?  Is it a keeper or a play a few times and done?
Title: Re: Consolidated Games-on-Sale Thread
Post by: Silent Disapproval Robot on August 25, 2019, 07:15:32 PM
I've only played it once so I can't really comment on longevity.  Your concerns are valid.  We found that handling all the decks was a bit of a chore and the game does eat up a lot of table space.  It also really should have included a battle board because you're expected to organize and play your cards in specific locations when a battle does occur and without a mat or board of some sort, it can lead to ambiguities.  They have a battle board illustrated in the rulebook so it's a shame that they didn't include one in the game.  Easy enough to make one yourself and print it out though.

(https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/019/810/917/f9aae84f3be5aa4ab7a4fa99d73bb2be_original.png?ixlib=rb-1.1.0&w=680&fit=max&v=1515509664&auto=format&gif-q=50&lossless=true&s=8e23a3aef570b76075386f9f7e335f94)


My opponent and I both felt it was physically unwieldy but we also felt that the core mechanic of creating your own TOE with hidden units in each corps was a neat idea and we'd like to play it again at least once more to get a better handle on it.

Combat is brutally unforgiving, especially for the attacker and we both lost a tonne of units early on before we realized just how deadly combat is in the game.  (I lost the entire French 1re Armee in a failed landing along the Cote d'Azure in August '44.  The Germans lost the 1st Army and most of the 5th Panzer army attacking the Normandy beaches in July '44.

There are a couple on the list that are very tempting, but even with discount, the shipping still makes it expensive.

Actually, everything in stock is eligible for at least 25% off. For every game on that list that you got on P500, you're eligible for an in stock game at 50% off (+1 total extra game 50% off).

Shipping is a bit of a killer. I ended up ordering SpaceCorp and Cataclysm. They're unfortunately (or fortunately for my bank account) between print runs on a lot of stuff I would have been interested in.

Oh and War in the East is $26.60 CDN on Steam, same 70% off sale.  :whistle:
Always check Steam when Martix is having a sale... Steam seems to have better conversions at least to CDN.

I've got MegaCorp.  Need to pick up Ancient Relics.  I believe Federations comes out in the next week or 2. 

Federations has been delayed until early next year (https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/stellaris-dev-diary-161-development-update.1285424/).  I think it's the right decision.

Thanks bawb, I will do that. Maybe those DLC are on sale. I'll check to see if any were downloaded. Funny thing is I've played it a few hours and can't say there's much of a difference other than the world structure/set-up.
Title: Re: Consolidated Games-on-Sale Thread
Post by: bob48 on December 02, 2019, 03:39:59 PM
Being fair, I tend to play it sandbox mode, with the largest map and a lot of opponents. It gets better as you go on, as they system of unit perks and buffs that you can get seem never ending. Add in hero recruitment and artefacts, plus magic research and you will realise the depth of the game. As I say, it gets better the deeper you go.
Title: Re: Consolidated Games-on-Sale Thread
Post by: BanzaiCat on December 04, 2019, 08:13:29 AM
I think I have 133 hours in Warlock 1 and have put in 5 or so hours on 2 so far. I'm not having too much fun with the 'normal' mode in 2 and have been playing with the Sandbox mode, too. The new monsters are interesting. Found a red dragon but haven't pushed my luck with him yet.  ;D
Title: Re: Consolidated Games-on-Sale Thread
Post by: bob48 on December 04, 2019, 08:49:49 AM
I actually have over 600 hours on Warlock I. For me, definitely sandbox mode is the way to go, and, as I say, with all the DLC and that workshop mod I mentioned, its becomes a whole new game. The unit progression system is one of the best I've ever seen in any similar game.

Let me know if you want to play it H2H on Steam :-)

Totally agree. Stonemaier Games in general gets absolute fanboy preening over everything they release, and their stuff is generally not all that great. Tapestry is a mess, Viticulture is dull, Scythe isn't good...

At any rate, their US distributor is selling off their remaining stock of gaming mats.

I've never seen one of their mats in person but I've heard very positive things.  I just ordered a couple of mats from them.

At $10, that's an instant buy.  XCOM2 was one of the most rewarding game experiences that I've had in recent memory.  Too bad the sale isn't for Xbox, though.

Yep, I'm in on that. Kind of reminds me of XCom : Apocalypse, which had some great ideas but was a pretty lackluster game overall.

It was bad, but still fun.

Saw that.  Very cool!  If I didn't already own the game, I would definitely pick it up now. 

...I admit I never have played Shogun 2 as much as I should have.  (I think I was afraid it couldn't hold a candle to the original for some reason.)  :-[

I strongly dispute that Empire was ever "fun".  Still the worst game in the TW franchise by far (aside from Rome 1, but that's my personal opinion).  :vomit: 

I don't own Napoleon, but my impression is it was a much better product (and in many ways, a direct response to the deserved criticisms Empire received).

Empire was fun compared to getting my ass handed to me the way Shogun 2 did. That wasn't fun. That was, 'shamefurl'. I liked the Global Economy thing and the Naval Battles were gorgeous in ETW. Plus it had the Marathas, who doesn't love them?  :D What other TW game have you ever been able to play an Indian Faction? And it had the other Indians too. And.... Prussians! The Custom Battles were worth the price by itself. I loved squishing Prussians with my Maratha elephants. Good fun.  :biggrin:

Well if Maratha was part of Empire's appeal for you, then I guess I understand.  :) 

I confess that when it comes to strategy games, the sub-continent has typically held little appeal for me.  I also felt Maratha was shoe-horned into the game as a blatant attempt to pander to Indian customers, similar to how the American Revolution tutorial/campaign was added to pander to us Yanks (both of which annoyed me greatly). 

I also found the game "unplayable" due to how absolutely horrendous the AI was, both on the battlefield and on the campaign map.  To have musket troops constantly charge my lines (instead of, you know, actually fire their weapons at range) or have a faction suddenly backstab me after my being a loyal ally for 50+ years...it just really broke immersion for me.  :( 


I did enjoy the naval battles, however; that was one of the main reasons I'd so looked forward to Empire coming out.  And yes, you can't really go wrong with Prussia.  ;) 



...I truly hope CA makes a sequel for Empire.  They just need do it properly this time around.

A new XCOM game called Chimera Squad releases in ten days (https://www.pcgamesn.com/xcom-chimera-squad/xcom-3)

Chimera Squad will be an all-new standalone game set five years after XCOM 2, and will be available as a digital-only Steam release on April 24. For its first week of sale you can get it for only $9.99 (£8.50) as part of a big XCOM celebration, but from May 1 it goes up to its usual retail price of $19.99 (£16.99).

Played the first two missions.  It appears to be more of the same (that's a good thing) with a few interesting additions to keep the game a bit more fresh / less predictable.  Breaches seem like a cool way to not know where your squad will end up when you begin an encounter.  Gone is team-based I go / you go replaced with individual impulses.  This alone changes quite a bit of strategy as it is much more difficult to chop down the largest tree before it has a chance to take a swipe at you.

This is also the first in the series that I've played on PC -- mainly because got X1 for free from XBL and I picked up definitive edition of X2 for $10 during an Amazon Xmas sale.  Thankfully, the PC version has great controller support.  The game plays just like a console would when I have my XB360 controller connected.  BUT, I must say the graphics are *WAY* better than X2 was on Xbox.  I'm able to maintain 60FPS in most circumstances on high quality.  Sadly, Steam Stream doesn't seem to support full controller play so I'm stuck playing on my PC monitor rather than my nice TV connected to a decent sound system.  Apparently, if I connect my controller to the PC rendering the game and not the computer that is streaming, full controller support works great as long as you're in range of the source PC.

Overall, I'd say that it's a definite buy at $10 for anyone that likes turn-based tactical combat.

Great price for the game.  It's a lot of fun and has more depth to it than you might expect.  Z-axis, Newtonian physics with vectored thrusts and inertia, Cylons doing micro-jumps around the map, and the minis are excellent.  (actually, all the components are top notch.)

My Matrix/Slitherine anniversary coupon showed up yesterday, so I allowed myself to go a little nuts (well okay, more so).  :D  Here's what I grabbed: 

Astra Exodus
Battlestar Galactica Deadlock: Ghost Fleet Offensive
Field of Glory: Empires - Persia
Shadow Empire
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Tau


It's easily the most games I've made in a single purchase in years, but the opportunity to get them all for half-off (especially when they're all newer/more recent titles) was too good to pass up!  Looking forward to giving them all a spin, but Shadow Empire definitely tops the list.
