Now What?

November 1st, 2009 by Troy Goodfellow · 10 Comments · Me

With the teaching done and buried for now, it’s time to get back to the blogging thing. But I’m finding my strategy coffers a little empty at the moment.

Part of that is because there are so many non-strategy games to catch up on. I still have to play Arkham’s Asylum and Brutal Legend, both of which are likely to be shortlisted for game of the year talk. Dragon Age: Origins will arrive on my doorstep soon, so that will eat into my time. And the big strategy game of the year, Starcraft II, has been punted to next Quarter.

Here’s an outline of how my week should go:

1) AI War: I’ve only dabbled so far and I feel a little guilty about it. So the next two days are all about that.

2) East India Company and Privateer: I wasn’t keen on EIC, as you all know. But it has gone through a lot of patches in the meantime, and now there is a sequel/expansion thing called Privateer.

3) Dawn of War II: There’s a new Last Stand mode that I’ve been meaning to try out. I should get the TMA team to join me on it.

4) Reading Paradox Dev Diaries: Between Heir to the Throne, Arsenal of Democracy and For the Glory it’s hard to know where to start. Well, since the first one is a new expansion for EU3 and the other two are Paradox approved but not Paradox developed independent adaptations of HoI2 and EU2, I guess I do know where to start. Just the same, this is a lot of reading.

5) History: Great Battles Medieval: New from Slitherine and the History Channel, I’m not very impressed so far. But it could get better.

Please comment if I’ve missed something important in the last six weeks.
