I voted no for the game as I think that, as has been said before, it may detract from the concentration of staff, resources and efffort that is allocated to SST at the present time. As has also been said, SST has an absolute universe load of material that can be exploited for the fun of all and that needs to be concentrated on in my opinion.
As for my personal opinion of the genre, well I love the history of WWII and all the battles fought and unit citations gained etc however, for some reason that I have never been able to put my finger on, I just can't get interested in the gaming side of WWII.
ASD: I think I can (maybe) put my finger on it for you: so much of WWII history concentrates on the Yanks/Brits/Russkies vs. the Huns/Japs. Ask anyman in either Europe or the US and I'm sure they'll think that WWII was fought by Britain, the US, Russia, Germany, and Japan...if they even have heard of WWII.
"Colonial" troops, and their accomplishments have been neglected to say the least, and I think that's a crime. Monty (sorry, but I have to rant now) seemed to prefer to sacrifice "colonial" troops first. I rank Monty with MacArthur: a self-absorbed, grand-standing prima donna (and I'm not supposed to talk about fellow West Pointers like that).
And let's not forget Vietnam: I've told vets here that there was a significant Australian presence in Vietnam, and some look at me like I'm on crack.
I never had the opportunity to work with the Australian Army, but I can tell you that I know I definitely missed out. Its reputation is well known in circles that matter!
If I can ever make it to Australia, you and I are definitley gonna have a throw-down!!! Hoo-Ahh!
Btw...I'm glad Australia decided to abandon that crap they call beer in Pommy land and brew palatable beverages! :lol:
No offense to any of you guys in the UK: I'm sorry, but your beer tastes like sh*t...unless it's an IPA.
P.S. Is "Scapegoats of Empire" still published in Australia? I can't find a copy anywhere here in the uS.
