  1. *yawn* Soooo, I just need to wait until the end of your watch? What time is that? 3pm for nap time? 4:30 pm for the Early Bird/ AARP card holder special dinner deal? Or after Jeopardy? At the latest, you are off to bed by 8. And that's O-high-O time so 5pm for us West Coasters. Okay. I can wait until then.
  2. oooo, lookies who else showed up after a long hiatus! May I be the first to extend a hearty hello at dear old _Axe_? All this reminiscing is making me want to fire up the ole game and sling some fiery TNT!
  3. Well, lookies here. Tucked away in a dank, musty corner of the interwebs PENG LIVES! This takes me back a bit. Like an old shabby sweat shirt. Old, tattered and smelling musty but the memories. Oh lordy, the memories. How have you lads been?

    2011 NFL Football Predictions

    The Vikings will disappoint me again. Of that I am sure.

    It's coming

    I was wondering when they were going to get back to this. The Fourth Reich or Reich 4.0? I think I am leaning towards Reich 4.0. It really brings a certain modern feel to the whole thing.

    Warren Buffet says ...

    'Let then eat cake"....and we all know how well that turned out. Doesn't seem like the type quote some one, anyone, would want associated to them if there is actual class warfare.
  8. I would say I started as "Type 1" but with the tips and tricks that the kind folks of the forum have provided I am holding my own against AI in medium meeting engagement playing as the Krauts. Gearing up to kick off some PBEMs against real people so we will see what I have really picked up.

    And I thought it was just a CMSF issue....

    Hope my posts don't come across as a knock on CMBN. I am warming up to the game but like others have said, it yer daddy's CM! Thanks all for all the tips. Knew I could count on the community for tips and tricks.

    And I thought it was just a CMSF issue....

    Yeah Cymru, that's the boat I am in. I am playing Cats Chasing Dogs and it is damn tough. There must be something wrong with the game play because I am playing as the Germans and everyone knows the Krauts were the shiznit and never lost. Although I do like the fact that The All-Seeing-Eye has been corrected. I find myself frantically clicking through units to figure out what is shooting at what. The controls are a little clunky but hopefully that will become easier with time.
  11. ...but no. This game is hard as f***. It's harder than...well, I will just stop there. Finally getting a chance to fire this bad boy up and I am getting my balls ground into a fine paste by the AI. Could be that I am just a noob but as a CMBO, CMBB and CMAK vet...I doubt it. Not sure why I am sucking it but I am looking forward to finding that out. Good job, BFC. You brought it!
  12. I did a quick search but got bored and figured I would start a new, specific thread. What the fook is up with those faux breaks? Granted I just started this but when I tried to move my boys through what I was an opening, they just stopped and humped the ground. Can you move inf through the breaks in the bocage in this campaign? How about clanky bits; APCs and tanks? Thanks, Mike

    Shoot me setup. Same criteria as finalcut. I may be better than a turn a day but no promises, depends upon which time zone you are in. Let me know if you want to try a scenario that I need to d/l. Or we could throwdown in homage to the now defunct Cheery Waffle Thread and do something silly like only armored cars or flamethrowers at night. Gawd I miss those days.

    And now for something...sort of different

    That bird has the 'crazy eye'. Always a tell-tale sign that she is nuts....and not in a good way.

    I am not sure that all of those gals are actual soldiers. Looks like a couple of models thrown in and some booth babes in uniform. But overall...very nice!
