I finally got the latest and all the previous expansions. The game is about ten times better now (and it was excellent without the expansions). I played trough the first campaign mission, and saved in the middle of the second one, as I have to prepare for my trip to Germany tomorrow.
There will probably be fewer posts for the next three to four weeks. I will, however, keep playing all the new DS games that came out. There’s plenty of those (and some are yet to be released), so I won’t be to bored without my laptop. I just hope I manage to get it completely repaired.
I finished two sessions today. In one of them, I tried to go for a technology victory, but ended up doing a diplomatic victory. I was allied with three races, one of them destroyed the one race I wasn’t allied with and that was it. In the second game, I won trough culture again. I also completed the first two campaign missions.
After reading a very interesting article here, I decided to give this game a try again. Basically, it’s Civilization in space. I played two games and finished both with an influence victory. This is not really a game that you complete (although it has a campaign), so it will probably stay on my “Currently Playing” list for a long time.
