Wargamer Weekly: Valentine14 Feb 2020 0
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a great week. Getting sassy with Lock’n Load and the Command Multiplayer news gave us much to talk about at the start of the week, although there hasn’t been as much ‘news’ happening which is why things got a bit experimental as the week moved on. By the by, I'm on holiday next week so there won't be a full Wargamer Weekly next Friday.
It was good to update our guide to wargames coming out this year, as it reminded me what exciting times lay ahead. Header image is of a Valentine-model tank, courtesy of wikipedia.
Meanwhile, in the world of wargaming...
Command LIVE DLC
The first Command LIVE DLC for Command: Modern Operations is now out. Broken Shield depicts rising hostilities between Israel and Syria, as the latter starts to deploy more credible anti-air defences to challenge Israeli air superiority over the region. It’s playable from both sides, but the Syrian version of the scenario is a lot more limited than the Israeli version. We should have a review up by the end of the month.
Task Force Admiral Blown Wide Open
Tim Stone over at RPS has been kind enough to link to Wargamer coverage in the past, and we’re long overdue for returning the favour. For this week’s Flare Path column, Tim has done a really cool in-depth interview with the creators of Task Force Admiral. It’s well worth a read if you’re interested in that project.
We’ve spotted two sales this week that you might be interested in. The first only has another day or so left on it, so you better be quick:
GOG.com has been doing a mid-week sale that will end tomorrow with up to 90% off a wide range of games. A lot of them are what we’d call ‘wargames’, many are more mainstream strategy affairs, but most are relevant to the audience here, so make sure you check it out.
Matrix Games are also running their own sales event to celebrate Valentine’s Day, because nothing says “I love you” more than invading Poland. They’ve put together five 24-hour flash bundles for the promotion.
The first one is today, and it involves Field of Glory II & Field of Glory Empires, and you can get both of them at a 40% discount. Check out the other bundles here.
That's all for this week - enjoy your weekends!
