Kickstarter for Wargamers

Kickstarter is a crowdfunding website that can help games to be produced, which would otherwise not see the light of day. Behind this image exists a danger that all wargamers need to be aware of. When properly handled Kickstarter can be hugely powerful for all involved.

Age of Empires 2 HD – Wargaming Recon #116

Age of Empires 2 HD

Almost 20 years ago Microsoft released one of the most incredible real time strategy (RTS) computer games ever. More recently they updated and optimized the classic Age of Empires (AoE) 2 to work on modern computers. Age of Empires 2 HD is quite a game.

For a limited time you can purchase it for $2.49 (regularly $9.99) via Steam. If you do, be sure to look us up on Steam. Our username is WargamingRecon. We’d love to game with you and relive the days of hearing “Monk…I need a monk” and “Long time no siege” while playing Age of Empires.

We apologize that our scheduled guest, Steven MacLauchlan, does not appear in this episode. He needed to cancel for personal reasons. We’re working to reschedule him to come on an episode sometime in September 2014.

GE38: 5 Reasons Ray Harryhausen was Incredible

Mr. Harryhausen created stop motion characters that explode off the screen.  He was best known for his work with the 1963 film Jason and the Argonauts.  Mr. Harryhausen passed away on May 7, 2013.
