As the title says, I have found my newest addiction in gaming. On Friday night, I purchased Civilization V because it was on sale and because my good friends DanDabcle and Kramer convinced me to crack open the coffers. I did and I have since logged so many hours in the game that my family actually send out a search party for me... too bad they were crushed by raging barbarians! Alright, just kidding on that past, but I have not been this wrapped up in a game since way back in the old days of discovering Ever Quest, which led me to WoW, and we all know how that has turned out.
I have been really enjoying the game so far. I enjoy the balance of researching, managing the wants of my own cities, the various interaction of other world leaders, and of course the war! I am currently running three different games. The first is a solo campaign of me against the world. I like to think of it as my learning game. The second is a game that you all will be able to see very soon up on the YouTube channel! It is a slightly harder AI that I am playing and I have also attempted a rapid expansion type of build. The final game is a free for all with DanDabcle and Kramer, which you can see over at DanDabacle's twitch channel.
As I continue on this journey, I encourage all of you to offer me advice and tips on what I am doing right versus what I am doing wrong. There is a lot to this game and I am certain there is always ways for anyone to improve, especially the nub player writing this post. As always, I hope you all have a great day and I'll see you next time!
