Civilization Five

Sid Meier’s Civilization has been my favorite game of all time. In one fell swoop, it encapsulates all of the strategic games I ever played as a teenager, along with its own brand of historical recreation and enactment.

I was very excited by the advent of Civ 5, as I have been for all of the Civ reincarnations. It was a let down. Gabi and I both played it a couple of times, saw the relatively dumbed-down interface and options, then started new games of Civ 4. Very upsetting.

On a blog note: sorry for not updating more this Fall. Life has gotten a little busy here at the Steussy Ranch. Nothing I’m willing to broadcast about yet, but I hope to bring everyone up-to-date sometime in the near future.
