Sid Meier’sCivilization V is more addicting than crack. I am shocked, considering how over the years I’ve gradually lost interest in the strategy genre and didn’t think any game was going to pull me back. When Civ V caught my attention I wasn’t even sure I wanted to get it. I was on the fence until last Thursday evening when my husband called me on his way home from a business trip and asked if I could buy it for him off Steam. Boy, I love it when the tough decisions are made for me. For a few nights straight, both of us sat enthralled at our computers after dinner playing the game, exchanging words only to share thoughts like “Cool, a Great General was born in my capital” or “Dammit, why is Augustus Caesar being such a dick?” Truthfully, I think a part of me already knew I was going to enjoy this game even before I installed it, probably while reading Anjin’s first Civ V post when it hit me just how much everything he … [Read more...] about Hi, My Civ V Tactic Is Annihilation, What’s Yours?

RuneScape dev Jagex is clearly feeling the Christmas madness already with today’s update. “Remember when they used to count down to Christmas with shopping days? That was before EVERY day was a shopping day. Not that anyone goes to the high street to shop anymore, of course.” We hear you, Jagex. Anyway, that’s just the start of this week’s letter and patch notes from the team, which actually does outline today’s update. The patch includes three new alchemical onyx items and the start of the Christmas advent calendar with rewards every day. The patch also takes away some old content, which may or may not be to your liking: “As many of you are aware, we’re going to be removing Mobilising Armies from the game. As a result, we’ve been figuring out how to ensure that its rewards remain accessible to everyone and that nobody misses out on anything as a result of the change.” As the RuneScape wiki notes, Mobilising armies was … [Read more...] about RuneScape deleted its RTS minigame-within-a-game with today’s patch
Most of you might not know the curious case of Blazheiev v. Ubisoft, which is why precisely why I am dedicating the time and space to discuss what is a truly interesting lawsuit.

Let us dive in, shall we? 1. Let’s Discuss The Basics Vitalii Blazheiev was a developer for Ubisoft, for which he is the plaintiff in this case and they are the defendant.
