Got Civ IV!

New in my life

The first week of November I’ll be going with Kevin to San Francisco. Two stores are getting renovated, and He and I get to work on the computers. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun, since I’ve never been there before. The two locations are across the Golden Gate Bridge from each other, so I’ll get to see that. I’ll get home just in time to be in my sketch show! So come see that if you can. We decided on the name ADD: Attention Deficit Disco.

Fable: The Lost Chapters

I was weak and bought Fable: The Lost Chapters for PC. I wasn’t disappointed too much. I’ve read that the story has a little bit to be desired, but I don’t think it’s terrible. Maybe this edition of the game goes into further depth than the original. One that that truly annoys me is that, although it is a console game ported over to the PC, it totally lacks any joystick support. I ended up downloading a program called JoytoKey, which maps keyboard and mouse controls to joystick buttons. Now the game is 10 times more managable.

Civilization IV

It’s not all that much of a surprise that I bought this as soon as it was released. This game has been so severely retooled, it’s great. I’m a big fan, all the way back to Civ I on the Tandy 1000.

I’ve almost played all the way through one campaign, but this is a learning curve game, so it doesn’t count. So far no one has hurt anyone, and in my next game I plan to change that. The graphics are gorgeous and the game is extremely intuitive. To top it all off, Leonard Nimoy reads quotes and the opening.

***I’m going to update this with more quality and details, but I just ate a huge lunch and am going into a faaaaaaadeee…
