  1. Thanks Mord... just got the free download for OOB WWII, played the boot camp missions. The game is really enjoyable! I'm going to get the Blitzkrieg, North Africa and Marines campaigns now!
  2. You yanks used to do a lot of that when we were parachuting with you in Hueys and Chinooks!
  3. Absolutely... took my dog for a walk on the beach a few years back. Threw a ball for him back towards the cliffs. Strangely, he didn't bring it back, but sat down and waited for me to go to him. When I got there I was astounded to see him sitting in between some old rockets and bombs!... Got him away from them and ran back to the camp site and got the manager to ring the bomb squad, who subsequently came out. Apparently it was a common occurrence as the area at the top of the cliffs I had been walking the dog along, was an old RAF bombing range during WWII, and after a storm, pa
  4. lol! can't say I've seen it myself... however, it's probably enough to scare the pants off my troops!
  5. Yes, what a good site, and you are right about the eye candy!
  6. I completely missed that little gem of info as well... good to know.
  7. You often see that kind of logic in any of the gaming forums... ''until you fix this, I'm not buying anymore of your products''... or, ''No VR, then I won't buy this, and neither will all my friends''. It's the sort of thing my lad would say when he was 14... but would usually end with ''I hate you!''
  8. lol... I'm going to jump straight in... when will the new modules be coming out? (it's ok, my tin hat is firmly in place)
  9. I watched 'A Walk in the Sun' today, a 1945 made film about a US rifle platoon in Italy, 1943. I must say, I saw the film years ago, but it's still worth a watch, yes, it's typically Hollywood, but they did a good job. I love the different characters and the interaction within the platoon, typical army humour and griping throughout. Good to see how they used their tactics as well, and I guess some will find fault with it, but it is early Hollywood Here's the title sequence...
  10. Yes, I get the same on occasion with all my CM titles. The only advice I can give is 'save often'... especially if you are moving large forces about.
  11. Not seen these... will work my way through them!
  12. Saw it a little while ago... worth watching, as was a recent documentary about it...
  13. I guess we have all seen the wartime footage of the combat in Cologne between the Sherman's, Pershing and the Panther, crew's bailing out, injured and dying... but to read the first hand accounts of people who were actually there, living through it, giving an in depth perspective on that action, makes it all to clear how dangerous it was. The book, right from the start, takes you into the minds of these soldiers, with accounts from both sides, infantry, tankers, civilians... plus the state of the equipment and vehicles etc. It's like reading an adventure story, with characters that y
