Hi all, been away from this board and CC-series for awhile but still the lure of it pulls me back in.   Smile

My question to you all is, how do you guys see the future of gaming? It seems like the 'big' titles rule the top selling charts and consoles are gaining ground but I think there would be a niche there for well made war games, for example. A game like CC could be played on a tablet, maybe not a cell phone, especially if it was slightly adapted. It would have a loyal audience/fan base and with good mods a life span.

Some of the 'first person' -shooter type war games like Arma-series are doing some interesting things with the mods and I like the forest/jungle locations in those games. Most strategic shooters don't get those right.

Yea, what are you guys playing? Or think about the "future of gaming"?  Very Happy

dj,

Yes, I saw that footage of the raid into Roger Stone's place. Such a strange and just weird regime.  Very Happy When I think of the US republicans, I'm still kind of remembering the 'neocons' who started, among others, the disastrous war in Iraq. Now it's almost like nobody even remembers the Iraq war although it cost hundreds of thousands of lives and is pretty much still continuing with the Isis-situation etc. It's almost as if the whole of the Trump regime is to create a diversion from the real big issues, like Iraq war repercussions, big social issues like UHC in USA, etc.

As a Finn Russia isn't an abstraction to me, it's the reason why we have mandatory military service. Also WW 2 history kind of shows that we've had some quarrels with them. It'll take a really long time until Russia is as modern and humane as most European nations are.

Not sure about the Trump-collusion thing. A lot if might be smoke and mirrors, but some is true. Russia is always doing some mischief somewhere with espionage etc. So is US.

1) - Some board games. Might get Insurgency.
2) - Sounds interesting.
3) - I have some accounts. Instagram is sort of interesting.
4) - Didn't watch it. Not a huge fan of the monarchy, then again my doesn't have monarchy and the Brits can decide themselves if they want to have it or not. Not sure how Commonwealth nations feel about being 'led' by the Queen/King anymore.

Häyhä's tally has been debated, especially the "200 with submachine gun" on top of the sniper kills. And the more realistic figure for the sniper kills might be around 250 - 300, which is still a lot considering it was made in 2-3 months of winter fighting.

There was a lot of propaganda during that time, as there is all wars. So it's difficult to accurately know the 'kill scores' of any sniper since they were often far from the target and it wasn't always clear if the target died or was wounded, etc. War historians will debate these things.

If I was an American I would be very worried about what is happening to the 'brand' of USA and also of the POTUS. USA wasn't really that popular even under Obama, Dubya managed to make USA one of the most hated nations in the world. It's not a question of Muslims hating USA but pretty soon everyone will. This will reflect into economy, commerce, politics, etc. USA is hampering protection of the environment that has a huge global effect and is starting wars left and right. IMHO this cannot continue.

Another one of these possible Russian mini-submarine sightings, this time in a harbour that's pretty far 'inland'. Could be true, could be false.

The Protesters in Moscow looked very bad for Putin.  I saw the video footage, they roughing up people.  Putin is starting to face some more serious opposition to his dictatorship.  One of Putin's political opponents has flying drone video footage trying to expose corruption.  

Still no answer on all the suspected sub incidents in Finland and Swedish coastal waters.  The Russians possibly are hiding stealth sub based near St Petersburg?  

Situation in Syria looks very sketchy.  Not sure what Russia gains except for maybe arms trade deals with Syrian govt.  Russia is hurting from sanctions not worth it.


About subs, I think they speculated that Russia is probably operating with mini-subs in the region. Or not.

There's one Russian sub, a big one, that sometimes surfaces near a ferry that operates between Helsinki, the capital of Finland, and Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Just kind of surfaces and tourists snap pictures of it. Doesn't seem hostile but it's not really normal either.

There's also been some airspace violations by Russia into Finnish airspace. For a while they weren't reported in the media but at one point the Finnish military decided to start reporting them in the media to put more pressure on Russia to fix it I guess. Which is kind of funny really. "Look, look, they're doing it again!" Oh well.

As long as the Ukraine conflict drags on, the sanctions will probably stay in place in some form and the situation won't be normalised. That whole thing has already had a huge effect on Russian economy, and on the economy of many European nations that deal a lot with Russia.

Southern Land,

I'd like to thank you for the work you have done so far. As a Finn and it being the centennial celebration year of the independence of Finland, your work on this mod is appreciated.  Very Happy

This will be good - late 2017. Well worth the wait.


Oh yea, sorry for the typo, I meant late 2017. Finnish independence day is December 6th so around that time I guess.

I have to say though, some of the actors seen in that teaser trailer are well known from being tv-actors in pretty silly game shows etc. That doesn't help in making the new version any more believable.

This year Finland will be 100 years old, the centennial celebrations will be pretty big. As a part of them, there will be a new version filmed of the famous war novel "The Unknown Soldier" by Väinö Linna. There has already been two previous versions of the book filmed, I prefer the first version from 1955 I think. Second version was filmed in 1985. They always show one version, usually the first one, on Finnish independence day 6th of December.

The story of the book and the movies is about a Finnish rifle company in the Continuation War. There was a 'uncensored' version of the book released some time ago with 'traitorous' lines left in that were said by some of the characters. Remains to be seen if this new movie will keep those in.  

Famous scene from the 1955 version. Rokka, a Finnish super soldier, shoots Russians.

I've always found it quite annoying how the US president is in a way 'the president of the world'. My country already has a president, and we are also part of EU and EMU and there we have another high level leader, Juncker. So now we should be worried because in a separate economic zone there might be bad leader? IMHO I hope that the American citizens prevail, I've met many Americans and the average people are very nice folks. However it's up to the American people to fix this Trump-problem.

Modern day Democratic party isn't necessarily that different from Republicans, they are both big money parties with big money donor money in their pockets. So I don't think Hillary Clinton would have been that much better. However Trump is a big unknown and has so far only created chaos in the world's economic markets and made many negative statements about various ethnicities, women, disabled, etc.

Video of Kurdish forces taking one Isis fighter prisoner. Pretty dangerous and good of them to take them prisoners dispite the risk of suicide bombs etc. No violence in this video but of course it's a tough battle with casualties.

I think, and this is just me speculating, that they would have a main operating base near the target area that they need to protect. That's what I think those walls are for.

Not sure if the truck borne rocket launchers are GRAD's, could be some other similar vehicle. I'm sure that Iraqi forces are able to buy stuff now.
