A long, long time ago I bought SH3 when it was first released. I had fun with it but this was before it was patched, so it was a bit buggy. After a while, I didn't think about it again, especially after I changed computers.
Today however, for some wild, "it's after the holidays and I'm bored" feeling, I bought SH3 over Steam and downloaded the 1.3 GB Grey Wolves Expansion. With some trepidation I let Steam do the normal install, then I installed GWX3 on top of it, fired it up and.... it worked just fine
. Oh, and it's just as much fun as before. I didn't load any of the JSGME mods on my first campaign patrol. This was in August 1939 and rather disappointing it was also my last. After cruising around a bit and shooting up some targets I was heading home to Königsberg when I ran into something or hit bottom or whatever; hey, I was down in the radio room listening to Lili Marlene
! Sadly, the entire crew was lost
Now I'm ready to fire up some mods and give it another go.
