MW2 rings a bell. Of course this was yonks ago, so who knows. I just know there was a lot of Wolf vs Jade Falcon stuff going in the game.
Probably MW2 then as the game is about the Refusal War between Wolf and Jade Falcon.

Also the first CD game I had... for DOS!

If you still have the disc you can put it into a CD player for the soundtrack; its pretty awesome.
Nice. I'll have to see if I can dig up a CD somewhere. Maybe Ebay. I bet there's a Win98 emulator that can run it out there...

There are so many old games I'd love to have again, man. Emperor: Battle for Dune, for one. Warcraft 2 (never played 1).
An Empire Deluxe port is available on Steam now. Its pretty fleshed out, you can customize the hell out of it and the AI plays well. I might give that a go next.

Either that or CK2. While I cant rival Thanas' adventure, last time I played I ended up being an African princess that married the Welsh King, took over his kingdom after he died (as alas all of his heirs suffered horrible accidents) then went on to conquer the whole British Isles. Historical accuracy was kind of absent that game, but was a lot of fun. :lol:

I just finished Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It was... look, the game's absolutely gorgeous, the melee system is genuinely neat, and I love most of the attention-to-detail and attempts-at-realism aspects the developers included, but it somehow didn't really click. Possibly because the story feels like (and is, apparently) about 2/3rds complete? Anyway the game felt like less than the sum of its parts, if that makes sense.

I do unambiguously love Pebbles the horse, though.

Two Point Hospital is my current obsession. It's flawed, but still a lot of fun.

Currently deeply engrossed in WArhammer 40000: Inquisitor - Martyr. Only got it last weekend as a late Xmas present from my brother, but damn is it fun. Something different as I haven't really played a proper PC RPG before, it makes a fun change from Empire at WAr or Sins of a Solar Empire or Homeworld mods.

Currently playing Horizon Zero Dawn on my PS4, and having another crack at Stellaris on my PC. Enjoying Horizon a great deal, probably my second favourite PS4 game after God of War.

Magic:TheGathering -- ARENA (online)

Friends at my game shop were talking about it for months, and one of them even live-streams his games, but I thought it was Pay-to-play. I was wrong. It's Free, with optional purchase of 'gems' to buy new booster packs. The current editions available are Ixalan/Rivals of Ixalan, Core 2019, and Guilds/Alliances of Ravnica.
However, if you're like me with a lot of time to waste, you can complete enough of the daily quests to earn the coin to buy a booster pack, as well as earn individual cards. The quests are usually not that challenging: "Play (x number) of (this color) spells" is one example. Another is "Win 15 games in a week", which I managed to do yesterday within 3hrs. You also may win a complete, play-ready Deck, just for playing that day. I usually go tweak it a bit, because I'm an old gamer who prefers not to play a lot of 5-6 mana cost cards.

If anyone else is playing, LadyTevar challenges you!

I got a free copy of AvP2010 courtesy of someone on the SDN Discord.

It's pretty decent so far. Having never played the original AvP games besides a demo of (I think) AvP2 back in the day, it captures the spirit of the games well enough. I still say the Marine levels are way too dark though.
It's a strange world. Let's keep it that way.

Been playing FF14 and STO lately. In other news can anyone give me an invite link to the SDN discord?

Commenced Kingdom Hearts 3 tonight before work. Gorgeous game, simply superb.

Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2, set during the 13th Black Crusade. Spire's come back from an 800-year vacation in the Warp to find the fecal matter has really hit the oscillation, and is now fighting Necrons, Eldar, Tyranids, Orks, and, of course, Abbadon to save the Imperium. Fascinating and frustrating as hell, in a similar fashion all 4X strategy games are(I want to just build spaceships and get down to the Xtermination part of the game), and some of the special abilities from the first BFGA are nerfed, but, all in all, I like the game so far.
