    Another blog entry on GalCiv II, but probably my last one for a while. Still, I think it's pretty interesting:) Enjoy...

    I don't normally advertise the blog here, but I don't normally post during the week either, so I figured it was worth it:)

    As I said in the blog, I'm so getting this game. It sounds like so much fun and I could use a new game, especially one like this. I haven't played a turn-based strategy game in a long time but I do enjoy them (whereas I realised a while ago that I don't really like real-time strategy games very much). Plus I could use a new game. I got Call of Duty 2 from a friend a little while ago, which was fun but disappointingly short.

    Some games worth checking out, then, DyRE.

    Fallout Tactics- turn based strategy set in the Fallout universe. If you haven't played any of the Fallout games, I highly suggest that you do. You can get Fallout 1 and 2 on the cheap these days. They're two of the most enjoyable and amusing computer games about the post-apocalypse you'll find. Sort of Mad Max meets Adult Swim, with tons of great spoofs on the classics. Fallout Tactics is substantially harder than the other two games, and contains far less story/rpg elements.

    Any of the X-Com games- you can actually download it here.
    (on a side note- the government classifies that site as "tasteless/gross," for some reason. If you figure out why, let me know. I'd have gone with "games," which are also restricted sites. But, hey, what do I know?)
    X-Com is pretty much the father of the tactical turn-based games. You're humankinds last line of defense against alien invasion. You have to capture alien technology, research new weapons and crafts, and defend cities from invasion. You can recruit new soldiers, scientists, and lab techs for your mission, and have to keep funding coming in- fail to defend a country from invasion and they'll cut your funding. This game is pretty old, but still gets high rotation in my pc.

    Master of Orion II- Another game you should be able to pick up on the cheap. Not sure how it'll hold up compared to GalCiv, but it's a space strat game. Sounds like a similar concept- you rule a race, and have to use force or diplomacy to conquer the galaxy, and defend agains the Antarans- a war-like race from another dimension.
