IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Moscow - The Gates of Moscow Are Still Too Far

Wars of Succession - How a Professional Pessimist Evicted Eugene of Savoy from Italy

A bit more gameplay of Wars of Succession, including commentary.

Wars of Succession is a great game. I could have benefited from some tutorials and a couple more of those small scenarios, like the one I'm playing in this video.
