Still predominantly KC:D, with ongoing modding progress.

Off PC, continuing practice of taught Meyer Longsword, Dussack, with 'from the treatise' experimentations, drill and freeplay with Messer (after Leckuchner) and Pollax (after anonymous author of Jeu d'le Hache).

Actually fencing with physical simulators of real weapons is far more satisfying (if a little less convenient) than doing the same in games.

I do still have a variety of other titles installed, but the only one I have played a significant amount of time in this year was Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

I hate micro, i play this game as macro as i can. I create divisions with battleplans and let the AI do the rest. Obviously, sometimes it doesn't work well but most of the time, if i don't screw sth up with battleplans, it's going ok. And when things get complicated i hit pause, make any necessary changes and move on.

3D combat is pretty abstract, although the system underneath is rather complex. Lots of different stats, terrain type, weather, morale, training, equipment, doctrines, day/night, air superiority, bombing, CAS, shore bombardment, radars and many more is taken into account during fighting.

I really like it from the start. I managed to do some crazy stuff like taking Berlin as Poland before 1939:) Now i'am trying to get Operation Sealion achivement which i think is self explanatory;) It's hard as hell trying to get through the English Channel. I think i'll try going from Denmark instead.

Actually I sometimes do that too. If there's a game I'm interested in but not 100% convinced, then if it's the type of game that can't be spoiled I'll watch a "Let's Play" type video.

The strange thing is, I can enjoy a let's play video of one game but not feel any desire to play it, and yet watch another one and simply HAVE to play it smile

Examples: Factorio. I enjoyed videos of that game without any desire to play it myself.

Crusader Kings 2 & Planetary Annihilation: wildly different games, fun to watch (CK2 is very dry to watch though unless the narrator is good) and both fun to play.

(Actually, CK2 is the game I want to play after watching Game Of Thrones smile political & dynastic intrigue without the magic.)

After finally being able to give up that addiction which was Destiny 1 + 2 which took up an endless amount of time since 2014 I recently started to get back into flightsims and other older titles.

- IL-2 BoX: Offline campaigns, learning the different planes and enjoying the scenery flying around.

- Close Combat Cross of Iron and John Tiller´s Campaign Series: Oldies but goldies. yep

- Nioh: An action RPG set in Japan during the year 1600. Think of a dark fantasy version of the late Sengoku period. Though I suck at those Dark Souls like games I really adore this one here. Extremely fluid fighting, very fast and utterly unforgiving! Love it! thumbsup

Hi Blade,

Well to be honest with you the short answer to your question is (and oddly so) both yes and no.

The long answer is that in fact this game (Cold Waters) is based on a 1988 game called "Red Storm Rising" developed by MicroProse back then whose storyline is based on the Tom Clancy's novel of the same name (Red Storm Rising):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Storm_Rising_(video_game)

When comparing Cold Waters to Jane's 688i, I would say:
- While Cold Waters is no "arcade game", it is a "light sim" much more simplified than 688i, since for example you don't have the different and dedicated stations views. For example no TMA station or Radar/ESM station, etc...
What you have in terms of views (in Cold Waters) is the periscope view (when extended) and the Tactical Map where you can see and select the currently detected contacts and then you have 4 tabs in which one of them can be used to expand a simplified ID page where after selecting your contact you can ID it in terms of frequency by comparing the contact's frequency with the frequencies stored on the subs Database - Here it is very similar to 688i albeit much more simplified, for example you don't select stuff like turns per knot and you cannot listen the noise level to bearing or resuming, you can only listen in the frequency band.
The other 3 tabs that you can expand allows you to track your current weapons stored on the sub and load weapons into the torpedo tubes, track the damage of the sub (you can even assign which part/section of the sub will be the priority for the repair parties) but again nothing as "fancy" as in 688i.
- So as you can see, Cold Waters is simplified compared to 688i although and again it is not an arcade game - Again I would classify it as a "light sim", which for the lack of time that I'm currently having is actually a good thing IMO (easy to learn and master, IMO).

Also IMO, one of the best features of Cold Waters is that you have 3 campaigns, ranging from the 1960's, to 1984 and 2000. I would say that in terms of tech and tactics the 1984 and 2000 campaigns are quite close to what we are used to in 688i.
The 1960's campaign seems very interesting (I haven't played it yet, but I played a few single mission of this era) since it seems to be a quite change in terms of tech and tactics compared to the 1984 and 2000 campaigns. For example in the 1960's missions or campaign your main weapon against surface ships are unguided torpedos (WWII style) and there's no missiles such as the Harpoon Anti-Ship missile. There are (wire) guided torpedos in the 1960's era but they are rather slow and short ranged and have a relatively weak warhead - basically their usefulness seems to be intended for use against enemy submarines (and even here there are very limited against the fastest ones) and as such their effectiveness is very limited against ships.

If there's something more specific that you would like to know about Cold Waters, please feel free to ask.

It seems closest to Red Storm Rising, with multiple submarine classes, and different technology levels in the different periods.

The gameplay also looks nearly identical at a superficial level at least. Prettier, with some limited 3D views ~ similar to Fleet Command.

Thanks both ricnunes and Lieste for the replies, this has been something i've been eye dating for a while,just like i did with rainbow six before finally wetting my feet . there was even a promotion not too long ago on gog that i missed because of my isp going down, either way i wouldnt have time to play it now but i really loved 688 as a teen and this seemed the closest that i've seen in years, i just love sub hunting.

Well that's actually why I'm currently playing Cold Waters - I also don't have much spare time for playing nowadays, however I'm currently playing Cold Waters from time to time (and as I said earlier, basically the only game I'm playing) because this is a game that you can learn and play a mission in a short time. Moreover if you are used to 688i then learning to play Cold Waters will be "peanuts".
Or resuming, as opposed to 688i (or Sub Command or Dangerous Waters) whose missions take a considerable time to finish in Cold Waters they don't, which again is IMO a huge plus (again due to my lack of spare time for gaming).

Pretty much just American Truck Simulator and once a month maybe some DayZ. Have all the newest DLC for ATS so i'm having fun with that.

Gave up on FSX after it crashed and lost all my DLC for that without spending ages looking it all up. Don't have time for it.

My own experience (and something that's been on my mind a lot lately), although my excessive time is spent in books and trying to *make* a game vs. playing them...

I've asked for lots of leniency, especially when it's late and I'm having problems. Or the rare case that I'm super-excited because I've figured something out. You can't always just shut it off at say...exactly 10PM each night, it'll just keep you awake and that's no good to anyone. It helps that the dogs now sleep in the living room as they could get restless until the entire 'pack' was settled into the bedroom for the night. I swear, even behind a closed door they could tell when I was late-night tip-toeing into the kitchen to cheat (usually for a handful of cashews or dates). Then I'd get fussed at for disrupting her sleep, but mostly for the cheating. smile

But now she's totally cool with me taking whatever time I need hacking away in my man cave, knowing I do my best to spend time with her and also to (and this is very important) get the proper amount of sleep. As long as I take a one hour break each evening for coop exercise (man cave becomes personal gym/yoga studio or we drive to the track) and that I shut it down every Friday afternoon and clean up with a shave, nice clothes, best cologne, etc. Friday date night is very nostalgic, going all the way back to high school/early college. No matter how much studying or whatever there was to do, after work (leaving ~11PM from local competing grocery stores) we'd spend the rest of the evening together, usually going to LSU Godfather's Pizza and/or the midnight showing of Rocky Horror. And now we're back to the old routine, sometimes even driving out to LSU (a bit further now), except there's no longer a Godfather's Pizza. frown

That's how *I* manage it anyway. smile

Well, I have ONE wife, but she's pretty cool about it. She knows how much I love to fly both IRL and in sim, and when I'm not in the RL cockpit, the sim is the best way for me to practice.

It also helped that when our son was born, and I was pulling the overnight duty to feed him/change diapers through the night. I'd pass the time between changing flying those sims or playing those games.

Joanna and I spend the majority of our time together so it's not an issue with the gaming really. Our routine is to hit our club for dancing every weekend until close at 4 or 5 am, but after the demise of our club and the birth of our son that isn't as frequent anymore. So, hey, this is the time I used to be up in the middle of the night at the club--I'm on the sim instead. Same nocturnal habits, different setting, haha.

Sounds like a blast, bones (only replace dancing with live Rock, I only do power ballad slow dancing...doesn't really count smile ). And my 'partying' limit these days is 1AM, home by 2 (and never back-to-back weekends). Then it usually takes me all of Saturday morning to recover, sipping coffee on a front porch rocker in my slippers, watching the horses and cows in silence. old_simmer

Lots of VR games for me:

rFactor 2 with the F1 1988 mod, and karting. I first tried rF2 ages ago, and disliked it. It has really come a long way, though, and is great in VR.
Raceroom Racing Experience, DTM and WTCC DLCs. Didn't click for me before VR. Now it does.
IL2 Battle of Stalingrad
Combat Air Patrol 2
X-Plane 11

Creed
Thrill of the Fight
Gorn

VR quarterback game. I don't even like US football, but this is fun and challenging.
Skyrim VR
There are others.

Non-VR games that still get a look in now and again:

ArmA2
Iron Front
Graviteam Tactics
/ Operation Star
GNBNA


VR has killed off some games that I used to play a lot. I no longer play F1 Challenge, NASCAR Thunder 2004, Indycar Series, and a few flight sims. I have also started using Unity and Blender to make my own small VR experiences, mostly for my own enjoyment.

I don't like that game at all, but I play it a lot

Then it usually takes me all of Saturday morning to recover, sipping coffee on a front porch rocker in my slippers, watching the horses and cows in silence. old_simmer


The wife allows you to wear only slippers outside?

Plantar fasciitis and nasty heel spurs on *very* flat feet which were once prone to frequent acute gout attacks, abused for many years supporting a sedentary obese body. Lifestyle fixed but damage done.

Maybe nature's way of telling me that I'm getting too old to be out past midnight, standing on my feet for hours listening to live Classic Rock cover/tribute bands and/or walking a downtown/campus enjoying the nightlife. Many Saturday (or Sunday) mornings my feet can't tolerate shoes, only slippers.

The spirit refuses to accept middle-age while the body is quick to protest.
