It’s been almost a week since I’ve had a chance to sit down and post to my blog. I’ve been super busy and exhausted at work, and when I’m not at work I’ve been feeding my video game habit. Things have been kind of crazy at work trying to get things ready for the holidays, and managing a project that got handed to me that’s mid cycle. Luckily the project ships in a few months and hopefully I’ll be able to go back to working on a project start to finish.

Earlier in the week I got Civilization IV for the mac and found myself hopelessly addicted to it. It’s a well thought out turn based strategy game. As proven by my recent Gears of War experience I’m not much for twitch based games, but on a game that’s 100% turn based and entirely self paced is awesome. It’s very strategic and makes you think about how you want to grow your civilization from being a hunter-gather based society to the stars.


As excited as I am about CIV4 I won’t actually be playing it much over my 4 day weekend I suspect: I finally got my Wii! I haven’t had that much time with it, but I got it set up and spent a little time this afternoon playing with Wii Sports and Twighlight Princess.

I have to say for the record that I’m impressed. The Wii’s graphics are decent (not good), but their gameplay is fantastic. Having a controller that is so motion based is highly intuitive and makes even simple games fun.

More on the Wii soon I promise – gotta go play it now!
