yet another entertaining episode.

Maybe your next LP could be no grenades allowed  ;D  Maybe experiment with various melee mods.

LOL! Heresy! No Grenades!

I have thought that putting together a "Heavy Metal" mod could be fun. :) 

This would only allow robotic combat forces.  All the original tanks would be in play and their modded variants (i.e. Laser Hover Tanks).  All the other HWP mods would be in too, like the dual weapon tanks, 1 tile drones and UAV's, as well as CyberDisc, Sectopod, and Enforcer mods.  Could be a fun run. :)

Heavy metal mod or ufo redux mod... both sound really fun to watch Ivan-style  ;)

The reality of my schedule probably precludes me doing a full LP of any mod. 

I'll probably do some light stuff in the mean time.  I've done a couple Lets Tries of "Out There: Omega Edition" this weekend.  Its a pretty cool Sci-Fi rogue-like quite similar to Faster than Light (FTL).  I've got a hankering to do some more of those. 

I'll probably throw down a Civ IV Colonization LP too, for a quick Revolutionary difficulty win. 

But I think that I'll probably start a Piratez run after that.  I have a sense that Meridian might pick it up where I leave it off, and I'll wait for Dioxine to release .90 version. :)

There is this one game that blew me away that I never really got into it and tried to do a LP of is Master of Orion II. It is a civ like space conquest game. It is pretty awesome and more people should know about it. It def falls into the category of 'rockin the oldies'

I've heard that so many people love Master of Orion!  I've never gotten into it either!  I think I tried MOO2 once, but it didn't catch.  I have Galactic Civs 2 as well, but didn't really fall in with that one either.  Thats not to say I don't like 4x games.  There are some that I think are amazing, and would really enjoy.

Cheers, Ivan :D

Well, there is no other game like Master of Orion ][. Period.

There were a number of attempts, like the Gal Civ series, but none could withstand the comparison. Well, maybe except for the Birth of the Empires, which is a very solid 4X game in space but generally simpler (well, it's a one man studio).
