No, click on the "Available on Gamersgate" link and it will lead you to a 404.
Last year, when I added the game into Mobygames, that very link still worked. Now it only leads to a 404 on Gamersgate, meaning it's no longer available there.
That's what I said, the other games' GG pages are still up and working. The only one not working is the one for Strength and Honor 2.

Depending how you count the 'strategy', M1 Tank Platoon 2 was a great game that you could play as a sim or as a strategy/RTS type of game.
And our dear Herve Interplay rereleases MicroProse M1 Tank Platoon games.

No Sword of Aragon made this list basically worthless.

The good news is that at least GoG has more taste than the Codex and has released it.
I didn't know there was game about Anduril before I saw GOG release.

Halo Wars 2 is only available on the M$ Store, does that count as not commercially available or is it better classified as non-existent?

Fragile Allegiance seems to be available at Steam.
Didn't include that in this thread before, because I thought it was released only on Amiga.

N is for News from Norb​

scourgeofwar3.jpg


Last month Scourge of War developer NorbSoftDev ended a long relationship with Slitherine. The split means the various SoWs – Gettysburg, Waterloo etc. – will be unpurchasable for a while. However, when they do eventually return to market, it sounds like they’ll be better and, possibly, cheaper than ever:

“Right now we want to re-release the games at a fair price with lots of good upgrades and fixes. That’s the goal here. Keep working on the games and make enough to pay the bills.” (Norb, Aug 30)
