Poker Night 2 (3 hrs): Before going on my recent business trip I wanted to take a small break from school work so I played PN2 the night before my trip. I reached the point where I’ve heard all the in-game dialogue so many times that I don’t even listen any more. I can generally […]
April: Civilization V (7 hrs): Met Dan in Mesa Bros; Waiting in Lefties Game May: Civilization V (11 hrs): More of the multiplayer games. June: Civ V (3 hrs): More multiplayer games. Super Meat Boy (30 min): I played a few levels until it began to get too hard for me. It is a very […]
Only Civ this month as I’ve been focused on my semester work. Civ V ( 29 hrs): Mesa Bros: It was my oldest game that didn’t yet have any war, but Germany broke the peace. In general, my style seems to be OK with AI warfare. Usually I can ramp up my units quickly enough […]
Skip to 28 seconds in. Sure, there are way too many Super Mario Brothers covers, but that theme is amazing as is seeing this performance of the theme on an ancient Chinese hyper flute. The instrument looks like something out of a science fiction movie.
Civilization V ( 20 hrs): Lefties Dido tried to be opportunistic and attack me while I was at war with the Celts. Now she is facing my wrath. I will not stop until she has been wiped off the map. Left a contingent behind to make sure the Celts don’t get cute. About to pay […]
Poker Night 2 (8 hrs) – I find Poker Night 2 to be a bit harder than the original. Not sure if they upped the AI or changed anything about it, but I find it a lot harder to win Texas Hold ‘Em in PN2. Luckily, this game also includes Omaha Hold ‘Em and I […]
Back on 4 Jan I posted my 2013 gaming post. Raptr created their own graphics based post here. It’s pretty neat.
Civilization V (48.5 hrs): As is usually the case, spent a ton of time with Civilization this year. Played about 3.5 hours less than last year, but had way more fun by playing with Dan and Dave. Things have gone a little slower recently because we’ve all been away for the holidays, but I actually […]
Civilization 5 (5 hours): Still haven’t caught up on the blog posts. Still entirely consists of games with Dan and Dave. Dan gifted me the latest expansion pack during the Winter Steam Sale, so I may fire up a solo game. Time will tell – I still have a ton of indie games from Humble […]
Civ V (<1hr): Continued to play with Dan and Dave. Again, hopefully there’ll be some updates soon. Skullgirls (<1hr): This game is a ridiculous fighting game that doesn’t take itself too seriously when it comes to the story. It’s a return to the fun of fighting games of the 1990s. At the same time, the […]
Back to the Future: The Video Games (5 hrs) – As is the usual situation with these types of games, I figured out I had to get to the 1920s about 2 hours before I had triggered the right series of events that would allow me to get there. Got to see the sense of […]
Civilization V (8 hours) – Keep following the tags (Civ V: Lefties and Civ V: Mesa Bros ) or check out my Saturday posts (although this week I didn’t have one) LIMBO (3 hours) – Here is my review of the game up to what I finished in September: The order in which I play […]
Once again we made a choice to go with a new guiding principle in our governance. This time it was Meritocracy. By rewarding those who do the best work, our citizens become happier. A gloriously large empire such as ours takes time to link up all its cities. In 360 BC the main Chinese road […]
If I may step out of the fictional narrative mode I’ve been using for a few weeks now, I have to say that it’s a shame these two games are my first Civ games in somewhere between 6 months and a year. Unfortunately, I didn’t listen to my brain for the first half dozen or […]
A bearded leader of some so-called civilization met with our Beneficent Empress, Wu Zetian. At the time we did not know where his cities lay. Savages attempted to attack Beijing, but we destroyed them by bombarding them from the city gates. We shall soon have to send an army to destroy their camp. We finally […]
