I played very little, but I did finish a few games. I tried a special game with a tiny map and 18 civilizations. That way, each civilization mostly has room for one city and that’s about it. I went for culture at first but then steamrolled through the other civs one my borders reached their towns. I finished the game with 3 vasals under my control, which never happened in any of my previous games.
I’ve also been watching some gameplay videos of Civilization V, and I have to say, I can’t wait until it gets released. This should be happening in a little over a month. It basically keeps all the great stuff about this one, and greatly improves on all of the flaws.

I keep coming back to this game. Off course, there is no campaign or anything similar so I won’t be completing it, but I do plan to go through a session every now and then. I installed it a few days ago, so I played a few games already, but nothing major. I would like to try and win some games on higher difficulties.

For the last few days, I’ve been mostly playing Civilization IV, so nothing special there. I’ve also played some other games.

Far Cry 2 (PC)

Reached 52% on Far Cry 2 and stopped there. The game started out good, but now it’s getting really boring, really fast. It’s just the same old thing over and over again. It turns out I got it a bit wrong. Those faction leaders weren’t really faction leaders, but just the local bosses, so there’s a whole bunch of guys to kill. I also got a few new buddies. I hope they won’t die this time.

The Witcher – Enhanced Edition (PC)

I started the original, but never completed it. Since this came out, I decided to try again. I didn’t play much; just the tutorial intro, up to my first meditation.

Final Fantasy XII (PCSX2 – PC)

Since some PCSX2 plugins got updated, I can finally play this game on the PC. It works almost flawlessly. In five hours of gameplay, it crashed only once. I got to the part where I have to save Penelo with the airship. Vaan is level 10.

I didn’t play much of anything lately. I installed Civilization IV again (my secret addiction), and have finished a few standard size games. I tried Shiren the Wanderer for the DS but I didn’t like it (it seems a little too slow paced for me). I don’t have much time because I need to study for my exams next week, so my gaming addiction is on hold for a while. Good news is that Assassins Creed is being released right around the time my exams are over, so ill have something to play then.
