Hi,

about it here :

As this going to be fought over my home turf so to speak I might pick
this one up. See if I can make a French tank division from all the
separate units available and kick some Pzkw I's butt :)

Cool. I played a little of the 44' Ardennes one.

Always liked AH's France 1940:) 

I'll meet you in my Pz III. Sorry..only the best for the best;)

On another note. I'm getting sick of EB postphoning their release date for
WAW every 3 days.

They now have it for Feb 14. As if they have a clue.

Ok - starting up a squadron of Dewoitine D-520's :) 

On a side note - as everyone knows the French had quality hardware,
their main failing was in doctrine and fighting spirit. With me as CinC
I'll kick some German butt :)

Even though the graphics have devolved since the Tsoft days, at least these
titles are easy available.

Yeah, you can just buy them on the 'net - which is in sharp contrast
with every other wargame that ... uh, wait a sec ...

Another advantage is that you can't download the game and start playing
the moment you've paid for it - I much rather wait 2 weeks for the cd
to arrive in the mail, but maybe that's just me.

Seriously : the only advantage HPS has is that there are a certain
amount of wargamers out there who don't have the time or the
inclination to learn a new engine/game system every couple of months
and are happy to stick to the engine they know - HPS releasing scenario
packs for them every couple of months is what keeps these gamers happy
- nothing wrong with that - it's a good business if there are enough of
them to keep you afloat.

And if they can make the occasional title that appeals to people who
aren't really a fan of the system, but are interested in the subject
covered they can make some additional sales.

Greetz,
