computerwargames: A place to discuss PC/Mac/Console/Mobile Wargames without miniatures
A computer based wargaming community for the appreciation of historical wargames. The miniatures are virtual, rulesets/opponents are often handled by the AI! Touching history with digital Hex and chits.
I've seen one guy do anything later than case blue. He beat barbarossa, case blue, and stalingrad, failed gotterdamerung, and is in the middle of failing kursk. At least one person has beat the kursk scenario, right? out of the tens of thousands of people who bought the game, only one that i can see has done stalingrad. Anyway thats pretty much it. wanted to know if anybody has beat kursk, and if so, do they have a youtube channel or AAR. thanks.
Is Schwerpunkt Games still in business? My links, even on this site, don't take me there. Thanks.
I own Civil War 2, Pride of Nations, Alea Jacta Est, and Revolution Under Siege. Can you guys suggest a new title as a future buy? I'm looking in particular at Wars of Succesion, Wars of Napoleon, Thirty years war, and To End All Wars.
All these time periods interest me. What i want to know is how good these titles compared to one another, basically what you guys think of them.
I recently learned about the tank simulator game Steel Beasts. It appears to be a very in depth tank combat simulator that has been around for many years. Can someone explain more about it? Where/how do I buy it?
Is it a game in a traditional sense? Missions? Campaigns?
