No. No I don't. I think my groin is pretty hot naturally. Perfect handwarmers for those cold days.


And now none of you will shake my hand.

No idea. The more I play the less complicated it seems, but theres just an awful lot of stuff.

Yoda:

From my understanding, Civ 5 has more complicated movement and combat, but less complicated civilization management -- but this ends up causing problems because the lack of complexity apparently leads to a lot of obfuscating abstractions.

Also in general I recall Civ 5 being highly criticized for being a lot less transparent than Civ 4.

BTW you guys should try out Alpha Centauri if you like Civ 5. Get it from Sold Out software instead of gog though. You have to pay for S&H since it's a boxed copy, but Sold Out's version comes with AC.

Actually Sold Out is UK based so Starmongoose wouldn't have to pay for S&H because he probably has limey pinko socialised postage stamps or something.

Fuck a limey pinko sounds like a delicious beverage.

Oh also also also try the europa universalis games.

Skyrim:  A fresh install, a fresh character, and some fresh DLC.  I figured that with the introduction of crossbows, it was time to step away from my usual axe-wielding Viking archetype and do something with a bit more range.  So I made a bow using sneaky character that also uses daggers for stealth kills.  And axes for everything else.  Old habits die hard.

The DLC looks pretty interesting so far, and crossbows have a satisfying sense of weight and power.  But the guy that gave me my first one annoyed me with his "Yeah, I bet you've never seen one of these before" spiel.  I'm pretty sure they were selling them right across the border two games ago, jackass, I bet there are still some floating around.

Final Fantasy XIII.

Gonna be stuck for quite a while with this one it seems. Since I can't get P4 Arena for now, this and my small backlog will keep me entertained until I can get my hand on it.

I really would love to update to a 3DS XL, but nintendo refuses to launch these things with any decent colors, and I just know when the next colors come out I am going to wish I waited, So I will try to remain strong and stick with my normal 3DS for awhile.

Hydrophobia prophecy. It was dirt cheap on PSN so I decided to give it a go. Its honestly not as bad as reviews made it out to be. Then again, I'm kind of judging it based on the price of admission, which at this point is less than a 2L bottle of Cola.

I like vanilla SMAC much more than I like SMAX.  The balance for the expansion civs was really off, especially if you played the guys who could build cities in the water.  It wasn't even fair.

Arkham Asylum - I've been moving along pretty good. I even completely lost track of time last night, and thought it was an hour earlier than it was. Oops. I just defeated Poison Ivy. Looks like I'm almost at the end.
This has truly been a great game. I shouldn't have waited so long to play it. No doubt I'll pick up Arkham City, but I'll wait a bit to do it.

Dear me stop being weird.

You can actually beeline for water cities in vanilla SMAC.

Started up a new game of Dead Island today. Got up to level 12 so far. I'm also going to start a new game on Skyrim. Probably go stealthy as I prefer Dark Brotherhood and Thieves quests a lot.

Still working on blog review for Final Fantasy XII, and I just got my 60th star in Super Mario Galaxy.  Tomorrow evening I'll try and finish it off.
