Been trying-out the Darthmod for Shogun 2. So far good stuff with improved battle AI and changes and doesn't try to fix anything else not broken. Lydia and I(skyrim) just finished up Swindlers Den and are ready to head-out again to kick some more bandit-butt.
We finally have some sunshine here in the Seattle area, so I expect to be frolicking in sun. But I would love to get some Red Orchestra 2 (realsim) on, so if some fellow wargamers want to get it on, I'm there.
Well.. since GOG got Pharaoh/Cleopatra in its line up I've fired up the CD to play it again.
Maybe some Conflict of Heroes, Hegemony and CK II, and even Minecraft- some really impressive maps are out there.
Panzerseast, I dig the Space Marine pic.
Fetrik I don't think it's boring. I remember playing Dungeon Crawl, long before Stone Soup- Ah yes the exploits of Bob. I'll never forget this derp moment when I had Bob 22nd, killed by the ghost of Bob the 21st.

Ahh, Friday, a 24 hour period so sacred they made three movies about it.
Got the beta for War Thunder: World of Planes up and running. I think this one is going to be a hit, as all the things that were done right in Bird of Prey are present, and many of the things people complained about are absent. There are new features as well that I am sure I have read requests for all over the place. Never have played WoT, so the whole model is something new for me. I am very well schooled in the various flight simulators that have come out since FalconAT, I think this is what got me my spot. I am (fingers crossed) picking up a used nVidia 9600GT this weekend as well, should be a good weekend for my gaming life.
As usual lately, will be doing the dilithium grind in Star Trek Online. This is the first MMO I have really put some hours into, well over 200 by my Steam count, and I am loving every minute of it. Hardware requirements are surprising, as my elderly 8400GS was pushing it along well enough until the new 301.42 drivers were released. I tell you guys, I am still amazed at the performance increase a new driver can give you without even thinking about cracking open your PC tower. In STO my performance went from ok to great! I didn't know what I was missing so it never bothered me and now it's like I am playing a new game. If you have a less then brand new nVidia card, make sure this driver update is one you don't miss.
I can also see some WitPAE turns being played in between everything else, as my allies vs. japanese AI game is getting into the second week of September, 1942. One of the things that keep me in this game is the underdog struggle you face in the first year and a half. If you make it to early 43 with enough assets to go over to the offensive, you feel like you've accomplished something. Thus far my personal record in either vanilla WitP or AE starting December 7th is July 1944. A bad error in that vanilla witp game cut it short, but I felt the thrill of having the most powerful fleet in the world under your command and using it to reign supreme over the Pacific. I think that getting smacked around for all of two game years in enough to keep someone playing through the end just to return the favor. Love that game!
Warlock: Master of the Arcane (just finished my 2nd game at a higher difficulty)
Conflict of Heroes (need to work through the tutorials)
World of Tanks
Wavering on picking up Diablo 3. I have to admit, I never really got into Diablo 2 though, so just not sure. Maybe it was because at that time, I picked up some kind of package deal and got Warcraft 3, Starcraft, and Diablo 2 but was playing WoW at the time, and as you all know it can consume much time. Anyway.
