Alpha Centauri and Civ 2 MGE with extra downloaded scenarios are the latest ones I've gotten off piratebay. I forgot how fucking awesome Alpha Centauri was...it's almost better than Civ 4,especially with the unit workshop. It's like Sid went backwards with Civ 3.



never played Alpha Centauri. Is it a turn-based strategy game like Civ?


It's the sequel.
You can win civ by travelling through space to Alpha Centauri.
But then there's a civil war on the spaceship and you have to choose which side you're on.
Same gameplay as civ.

It's not really a direct sequel, since it's the UN that sends the spaceship, not a single nation. It's basically Civ 2 but better in every conceivable way. Some extended reading for you...

sadly this is mostly valid for old gamers.
just look at game sales and you'll see nice graphics and massive marketing are all that matters these days.
youngsters don't have the patience to read elaborate stories, take part in long dialogues or challenge their brain for hours to solve a puzzle. they don't want to explore, they want to be guided, they don't want to read pages of text, they want action and finally they don't want to be challenged, they want everything handed to them on a platter filled with lots of achievements.


Quite true. Which is why the Might and Magic series went to shit. It wasn't worth it to the developer to make a deep game.

Very much like Civ, and an excellent game.

Finally beat it today, and yeah, you're right. It's a damn good game with a damn good story. I was disappointed at first once I beat the final story mission until I realized there was one more stranger mission that let you kill that bastard Ross. Haha, I killed his wife and brother too.

It was pretty sad. At least he took some of them with him.


On a happier note, since I'm done with that game I've started messing around with minecraft on the xbox. I always thought it looked dumb, but it's seriously addicting. I've been at it for a couple of days now and I'm still not finished with my enormous 2 story house with attic loft. Unfortunately, there isn't much to put in your house, so aside from a bedroom, a crafting room, and an indoor swimming pool room, the other 6-7 rooms are completely empty, save torches. I'm considering building an underground tunnel from one of the rooms down to the ocean for the hell of it, but I need to wait on that. I'm still working on a roof, which is a serious bitch to build, since I'm building a pitched roof and the damn house is like 200 blocks long by 150 wide. My world will be deforested before too long.

Who would have thought such a simple game could be so much fun?

you never stop playing minecraft.

when i bought it... year and a half ago i think... i played it 6-8 hours a day for over a week. just a month ago i got into it again and played for at least 50 hours.

the replay value of that game is ridiculous.
