Monday: 7-21-08 Dreams of Civilizations and Battlefields

I've been playing a lot of Culdcept Saga for the 360.  That game is awesome, despite some less-than-amazing lost connections.  Currently working at the University of Washington, and found out today that my contract with them ends in two weeks.  So...yeah, I'm going to be getting another job. Hurray. 

As for other games: I'm thinking about renting Civilization: Revolution today. Everyone on my friends-list has bought it, so I might as well give it the old college try.  I'll let everyone know how that goes.

Battlefield: Bad Company is as good as Jeff G says.  I wasn't expecting to like it, but it's now one of my favorite military shooters--mainly because it doesn't take itself so seriously.  Also, things blow up good.  Real good. 

Although it's becoming standard for a military shooter to have stand-out sound design, BF:BC tops the lot.  It's as good as, but perhaps better than, COD 4's sound design. Every gun, every echo, every clink, every shush, every splode every etcetera, is perfect sounding.  It's one of those games that I don't care annoys my neighbors--it must be played loud.  BF:BC = *****/*****
