GMT Games announces more P500 titles and shipping

"Fans of modern combat and our Next War series, rejoice! We have another Next War series game ready to add to the P500 list. This time the setting is India/Pakistan. Click the banner below to go to the P500 page for more details plus ordering information. Enjoy!"

Shipping: Our shipping schedule has been a little mangled due to the delay on getting the boxes for The Dark Valley. Those are still a week or two away at this point, but we do have another shipment coming in later this week that will allow us to ship the following two games starting this Friday, November 15:

We anticipate another P500 shipment probably about ten days after that one with these two games included:

The Hunters (Consim Press)
Charging:  We will be charging for C&C Napoleonics: The Austrian Army starting today, Wednesday, Nov. 13. We'd held off the previously announced charge, but now need to make this one quickly so we don't have any hold-ups on the Friday shipments. On Thursday, Nov. 14, we'll charge for The Hunters.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn the bad

FATE's are the only way to realistically level. FATE's are as boring as it gets. It is RIFT 2.0 minus the flavor in terms of running this. 

I am getting a bit weary of this game now.  

Leve's give terrible XP, no side quests, dungeons are taking over an hour to get into.  

Just a bunch of cattle being lead back and forth.  I learn nothing about my class by spamming one skill in order to get a hit in during FATEs.  

Basically it is back to WoW for us and I will not be renewing the FF XIV account. Not a TERRIBLE game but I found Aion more fun. 

For the most part I have spent my week playing Hearthstone, World of Warcraft and trying out Battlefield 4 on the PC. I found Battlefield 4 to be about unplayable on the PC so using the Origin Great Game Guarantee I got a refund. I find it to not be fun anyway. It is full of snipe campers and general sloppiness. 

So on and on it goes. Board game wise I got Elder Sign and the expansion and have some Space Empires by GMT planned next Saturday. 

Played some Descent 2 last week. The new version is tighter and more compact not sure I like that plan but it played well. Looking forward however to Flying Frog's Shadows of Brimstone which looks awesome.
