Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
My first wargaming experience (besides playing Risk in my early youth) were console wargames on Playstation and XBox. When I played "Hidden & Dangerous", I suddenly realized I wanted more... my first board wargame was "Axis and Allies", but it soon became too simple and too limited, so I switched over to "Squad Leader" and ASL. Since then, there was no turning back and I began to explore the vast world of consims. Eventually, I became one of the founding members of the "HFC" - Homefront Wargame Center.
Your favorite game(s):
* Board-/ Card based: Totaler Krieg, ASL, Up Front, Vietnam 1965-1975, War of the Ring, Imperium Romanum II, Empire of the Sun... I prefer the strategic and operational levels, but I also like tactical and skirmish games.
* PC: HPS Panzer Campaign Series, Battle Academy
* XBox: Call of Duty
What game(s) are you currently playing (solitaire, FTF, PBEM, etc.) or wish to play next?
All LCGs by Fantasy Flight Games, Totaler Krieg 2. We are currently re-playing all our games because we did a review-reset on our website and are re-writing our old reviews from a fresh perspective
What game(s) have you played recently?
Totaler Krieg 2, Julius Caesar (Columbia Games), Empire of the Sun, Arkham Horror, Battlefield 3
In general, how much time do you spend gaming?
~30 hours / week
How big is your game collection?
~70 board/cardgames and tons of videogames
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Besides wargaming, I like playing console games on XBox360. My favorite genres besides wargames are Ego or 3rd person shooters (Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War, Battlefield, Borderlands), Role Playing games (preferable turn-based, but I also enjoyed Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Dark Souls, Dragon's Dogma).

I'm a fan of Marvel Comics, especially X-Men and Spin-offs. I prefer the "bronze age" X-Men team (80-late 90s). Besides these, I read Wolverine, X-Factor and Excalibur. I also enjoy X-Men videogames, for example X-Men Legends II or Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

Another field of interest is the vast Star Wars Universe. I like the Expanded Universe created through books and comics. I especially like the books by Karen Traviss, i.e. Republic Commando 1-4, her Omega Squad short stories, A Practical Man and the Legacy of the Force Series. Besides this, I strongly recommend the Graphic novels Clone Wars 1-9 by Dark Horse Comics.
I also like Star Trek Deep Space 9 - which proves that Star Wars and Star Trek are not mutually exclusive.

Besides this, I read all kinds of books - military history, Science Fiction, specialized books about various topics, zombie books, and everything related to Warhammer 40k Horus Heresy.

I hear music all the time and enjoy a vast variety. Besides Metal (King Diamond, Sabaton, Therion, Blind Guardian...), I like Rammstein and Einstürzende Neubauten, Classic Music (especially Russian composer Shostakovich, but also operas and music by Verdi, Wagner, Mussorgsky, Beethoven (who was born in the city where I used to live ;). I'm a fan of movie and video games soundtracks and collect these.

Last but not least, I'm a zombie fan, having a vast collection of zombie novels. If you can read German, check out my zombie blog at: http://zombiewelt.wordpress.com/

This July, Andreas and I visited Speyer, a 2000 year old city in Southwestern Germany, founded by the Romans. During the Middle Ages, Speyer was the Imperial City where kings and emperors ruled over Germany.



The city has a rich history, the oldest and largest Romanic church world-wide (which is even an UNESCO world heritage site) with… Continue

Visiting Battlefields: The Bridge of Remagen - a field trip

In May 2008, Andreas Ludwig and I used a prolonged weekend to visit the Bridge of Remagen.



After the destruction on March 17th, 1945, the Ludendorff Bridge was never rebuilt but remained as a memorial. Today, the bridge towers at Remagen (on the left bank of the Rhine) house a famous war museum, telling the story of the Remagen bridge. On the opposite bank, high above the medieval town Erpel, the volcanic basaltic rock "Erpeler Ley" offers a great overview of the Rhine valley, the… Continue

Beware of "Army of Two"

Easter holidays - this means 4 days of gaming and relaxing!



Andreas Ludwig and I decided to spend this year's Easter mainly with three different activities:

Denny, Life in the USA with the name Uwe can be a challenge. I usually get called a female sheep - Ewe, some anatomical body part like Ovary, some exclamation of total bliss - oooohh, ooohhva, or just hey u! :) Mit den Mexikanern geht es ganz einfach, da auf Spanisch Ova ein Wort ist! Aber in meiner Fussball Mannschaft nennen sie mich immer noch "Pan Blanco"!
Viele Gruesse aus Ohio.
