So, downloading Civ III from Gog.com…

…might have been a mistake. 10:30 becomes 11:15 becomes oh crap, it’s after 1 AM. On the other hand, it was only six bucks and I’m getting tired of waiting for Bloodlines 2 or Cyberpunk. Assuming that they even make their deadlines, which isn’t guaranteed these days.

    This might not be the best place to praise the story that Respawn has been rolling out in Apex Legends.
    But it’s also far from the worst.
    The build was great, characterization was awesome, the climax lived up to the hype and fell somewhere between satisfying and unsettling, and the cliffhanger in the denouement was epic.
    And most of it was done old-school. With actual lines of text being the main medium. (The PVE missions were good. Some of them quite challenging. But they mainly set the mood. Most of the best bits were while clicking “next” for another line of dialogue.)

    Dude, I’m still stuck on Dwarf Fortress …

    Um, you might want to contact customer support at Gog since they launched a strategy game sale a few hours ago and the current price for Civ 3 is much less than $6

      Nah, I’m not going to fuss over four bucks.

      Civ IV at $7.50, though… crap, I almost bought that last night at the regular price.

    My Civ IV vs V mini-review, YMMV:
    Civ IV is basically the pinnacle of fun for me in the series. They added religion and customization to a certain extent, and the wonder animations are really good.

    Civ V has a lot of bells and whistles but the UI sucks, it’s a bloated memory hog, and I eventually uninstalled it, after giving it a solid try for an extended period.
