Oh, right, that’s why I don’t play Civ-type games.

Because it’s 5 AM and I have made a very bad mistake by still being up this late.  Good night/morning.

    That happened to me with Civ 4. I got it on launch day (pre-ordered it), installed it, my friend came up after work, and we played it until sunrise. I had half-expected it to be a long night, so I had scheduled the following day in advance.

    This was because of Stellaris?

      Yup. I was going to go to bed, but then diplomacy told me that I was critically behind in the race to empire, so naturally I had to fast-grab about twenty star systems, and I loaded the game up with habitable worlds, so naturally I needed to colonize them, and hey it’s 5 AM.

    Just. one. more. turn.

    Oh well. Stellaris was on my wishlist anyway…

    Truly it takes a strong man to learn this after only 2 sessions with a game. May you have a light day.

  • ChrisValentine says:

    One objection to Stellaris: the lead dev on that game has the most tone-deaf PR sense of their entire company – maybe even of any video game company, and regularly starts fights with the fans. Thats the risk P’dox takes by constantly hiring their more prolific modders and Twitch streamers.

    They actually went and hired a community manager just for that one game to minimize how much trouble he could instigate.

    I learned this playing empire, or as it’s now called Wolfpack empire. The limiting factor in that game is how long can you continue to abandon all other responsibilities and sleep in order to keep your country going.
