  1. Casey, my beef with the lack of coverage of actual outlier computer based wargames.. there seems to be a glut of board wargame podcasts, and then you have 3MA that covers the odd wargame now and then amongst the strategy stuff.. but the true computer wargame that gets very little attention, but serves a community..

    Things like, Schwerpunkt’s titles, Piercing Fortress Europe, the SSG games (old as they are), the Nuutinen Android titles, the DK Simulations titles, HPS/JTS titles, Jeff Lapkoff titles, TOAW, NWS stuff etc..

    There is an underground out there that runs computer wargames that serve a specific taste, and that taste seems very under represented. In fact Matrix/Slitherine cover a lot of the titles, but they have a rep, and have a base to sell to.. there is an enthusiast area that just isn’t covered.

    The grogcast mainly covers boardgames and boardgame nostalgia… I created /r/computerwargames in an attempt to sift out the painted miniatures and boardgames.. so we can focus on more AI centric fringe stuff.. but even my sub-reddit is swamped by the biggies, with streamers being keen on the likes of the big Matrix/Slitherine titles (Order of Battle etc).

    If you go to the “biggies” (Paradox/Total War etc), or the 4X’ers, you’ll be missing the niche that really pushes computer based wargaming, but perhaps your listeners will be more plenty – it has to be said. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Keep up the good work.. we desperately need more strategy related podcasts, and especially ones that cover the fringe of the computer based wargaming community.

    Cheers

      Hi Ian!

      I actually hoped you’d come on and guest on one of the shows. I was watching your Piercing Fortress Europa videos not long ago so I know you’ve got the voice for it!

      Totally agree in regard to the lack of content. I enjoy a lot of strategy games but my particular tastes are pretty much exactly what you highlighted. I enjoy a boardgame on occasion but too often I stop and wonder how much better of a game it would be on the PC where I’d not have to spend half my time hunting rules.

      I come at this as an amateur/enthusiast with no interest in ever making a living or breaking into games journalism. Hopefully the amateur enthusiasm shines through and I can just talk cool games with cool people (to a cool audience). Most of these games deserve more conversation and hopefully more sales.

      Keep up the good work Ian, I’m on your subreddit daily. Would love to talk games some day.

    Would be interested in hearing your take on Ultimate General: Civil War and any conparables.

    • Casey

      Will do Mike! It’s a game on my list but I’m not a big ACW guy. I’ll have to find some knowledgable guests for that one.

      Thanks for the suggestion!
