Steam Play

I have been using a Linux Desktop machine as my primary computer for many years now. The applications I use day to day are mostly open source and run natively on Linux or through WINE.

Galactic Civilizations III

Now this I can’t wait for. Galactic Civilizations III has been announced. I have played the first two in years gone by; both excellent games. I have spent a great many hours sat in an extended gaming session with GalCiv 2. A few times I only stopped a session when the battery in the mouse ran out.

Time Sink

Over the past 3 and a bit months I have been playing Eve-Online, a massively multiplayer game set in outer space. This has been the first time I have played something like this for any great length of time and like any game it took me the best part of 3 months playing to get to the stage where I had a few options.

Galactic Civilizations 2 Arrived

The game I had been waiting for arrived a few weeks ago. It was well worth the wait and caused me to have several long gaming sessions ( i.e. more than 5 hours at a time). The new job means I will have to settle for a few shorter sessions when I can fit them in but its a game I will keep comming back to. Incedentally the 1.1 release is currently in beta testing so in maybe a week or so I will have an even better game to play.

Waiting For GalCiv2

The release date for Galactic Civilisations 2 was the 21st. Atleast it was for everybody who bought it via the electronic download. I am still waiting for my boxed collectors edition. I might have to wait a bit longer as I ordered via Amazon and they need for the european distributer to send the copies to them. I thought the distributer would have sent the game out by now but it appears not. So the new release date appears to be the 3rd of March. This puts the release date as next friday. If Amazon don’t dispatch the game before then I’m not going to recieve my copy until the following week as I doubt I’ll get a weekend delivery.

GalCiv 2

Galactic Civilisations 2 is soon to be released. Why am I telling you this? Well, GalCiv 1 was one of the best strategy games I have played in years. It was a well constructed game, it was distributed by the creators as a download and it was under active development for 12 months after the initial release to bug fix, balance gameplay and add a few new features. With developers who have designed a game for the players and listened to their opinions to make it a better game I can’t see how Gal Civ 2 can fail to be anything but a huge success.
