Rilasciato War in the West

Settimana scorsa è stato rilasciato War in the West dalla Matrix. Non proprio un gioco per tutti, sia per prezzo che per impegno da metterci. Vedrò in futuro se prenderlo.

Crusader Kings II: Way of Life

Nuova DLC per Crusader Kings II prevista per il 16 Dicembre; Way of Life permetterà al giocatore di aggiungere nuovi elementi RPG al proprio personaggio.


Fans of Crusader Kings II will be happy to note that the expansion, Way of Life, will be launching on December 16th. The expansion contains ten different focuses and gives players more of an RPG feel to their RTS in the form of new diplomacy options and more.


Set a Focus - Give your rulers a “way of life” by assigning them a Focus that will give an immediate boost to their skills and help shape the course of their development through events and decisions – new and old. There are ten different Focuses available to your characters:

• Rulership – Be a better king!
• Business – Gold is good
• Hunting – Kill the beast!
• War – What’s yours is mine
• Family – the most important thing, right?
• Carousing - ahem
• Seduction – double ahem
• Intrigue – sneaky, sneak
• Scholarship – We love to learn
• Theology – Do it for the big guy upstairs

Due patches per Combat Mission

E' stata rilasciata prima la patch 1.2 per Combat Mission Red Thunder:

http://www.battlefront.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=337&Itemid=581
  • Building entry no longer problematic for some systems
  • Infantry flamethrowers have slightly longer range
  • Troops spot immediately nearby mines better (esp. engineers)
  • Ricocheting APHE will not explode where it finally lands (the fuse is considered damaged)
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused buttoned-up tank crew to be suppressed by external explosions
  • Squads position their teams better along walls, fences and hedges
  • Artillery usually requires another spotting round or two before acquiring the target
  • Corrected some TacAI problems with crewmen positioning themselves around a heavy weapon
  • Improved coordination between tank hull and turret rotation
  • Better logic selecting the two men for scout teams
  • Improved long-range optics for JPz IV, Jagdpanther
  • Very heavily-laden soldiers cannot use Fast or sometimes even Quick moves
  • Mouse text for targeting: too close or out of range
  • Towed guns look better as vehicle turns
  • Improved damage modeling for external systems on tanks
  • Improved QuickBattle choices
  • Improved TCP/IP play

E poi la patch 3.11 per Combat Mission Battle for Normandy (qui vuole l'upgrade 3.0 per installarla)


- Group moves and evade commands are no longer a workaround for weight-restricted movement speed.
- M1 Garand rifle-grenadiers carry more rifle ammo.
- Minor fixes to new German vehicle models to prevent crew from poking through the armor.
- ATG bunkers have a more realistic (limited) front arc for their guns.

- Improved long-range optics for JPz IV, Jagdpanther
- Very heavily-laden soldiers cannot use Fast or sometimes even Quick moves

Field of Lost Shoes - official trailer

Trovato recensito questo film di quest'anno Field of Lost Shoes; che tratta della battaglia di New Market e specialmente dei cadetti del Virginia Military Institute, tutti giovanissimi, che presero parte alla battaglia senza esperienza. La battaglia venne vinta dai confederati, nonostante la sproporzione numerica, proprio all'intervento all'ultimo di questi ragazzi: il generale Breckinridge prima di dare l'ordine di avanzare a questi ragazzi, disse "fate avanzare i ragazzi,....e possa Dio perdonarmi per quest'ordine".


Total War: ATTILA - The White Horse official trailer

E' stato annunciato il prossimo gioco della serie Total War, ATTILA - The White Horse, che proietta nel mondo alla fine dell'Impero Romano. Francamente a me sembra più una dlc di Rome II che un gioco separato. Stanno provando probabilmente a spillare altri soldi senza sviluppare nulla di nuovo. Dobbiamo dedurne che la serie è alla sua fine dopo 15 anni dal primo.
