Region "Turnhout" is wrong

I was just reading about Donkey Kong and Pacman kill screens :) apparently the majority of people didn't get past a handful of levels in the arcades of the 80s yet today people still go for that kill screen. Which takes hours and hours of non-pausable gameplay. Even though there is nothing there. It...

Well I met the would-be heir to the throne once - his name is Ferdinand, 17 years old and trying to get a professional race career going in Formula Renault :) He races as Ferdinand Habsburg. He is a nice kid and really just a regular kid interested in fast cars and girls :) And I got the impression ...

Having read a lot of history of history writing, it is clear that there is an eternal discussion about "it was bound to happen" and individual choices and decisions. Personally I am more the choices-type. Even though the concert of Europe was in decay, and the arms race went skyhigh, I think the war...

Okay it's a nice sensational piece, but there are many incorrect things there. For instance, "Germany would have likely defeated Russia given the sorry state of its military. Together with Austria-Hungary, the two nations would have ruled over a massive European empire." While it is likely the Germa...

I used to hate this game

My first try on AGEOD games was RoP, but I was kinda overwhelmed. Didn't know enough about the period, the generals etc. Since Napoleon is more "my" period, I then bought NCP hoping I would get more into the whole AGEOD style of gaming. I got utterly frustrated with that game (couldn't figure out wh...
