playing gig and djing tonight
GOOD LUCK TO WHOEVER BE INVOLVED THOUGH!
playing wow and wiping tonight
CAN WE DO ONE ON MONDAY MAYBE? MONDAY R GOOD.
it was pretty funny the last time we played. we start, and 7 hours later "SHIT, 3am?! I have work in the morning!" "just 10 more turns" "k"
---1 hour later---
"SHIT, 4am?! I have work in the morning!" "just te- hey where'd duck go?"
How to join you on a game?
I have Steam and the basic Civ4 bought from it. That's as much as I've ever done on Steam.
click multiplayer. then 'internet game'. you'll probably need to make a gamespy account, but you can do that there. then youre in the waiting room or what have you, and you pick out the game you wanna join
you can also play by email, have someone host it, and other stuff too.
duck or someone could probably explain this better than me
also also, everyone is welcome! we should have a proper huge game that will never be finished sometime too
Made myself an ID, logged in and saw a room of games, so it works. Catch y'all next week for a fresh'un! Play by Email sounds all old school and amazing. I loved old PBM games :D
Not tonight though.
I suck mind.
Does anyone have defcon? DiScon could be fun, and it doesnt take mad amounts of time to play a game like civIV
And I'm away for two weeks next Thursday so I really want us to finish it then too, but there are only a few more turns so shouldn't be too difficult.
That trailer is uber-geeky, I love it. Sid Meier looks like he has a freezer full of hooker heads in his basement. Graphics look lush too.
That's INSANE. Although now I think about it I can't remember the last time I bought a game when it was released - is that generally what a new PC game will cost at launch?
I paid £35 I think. That was in 2005.
which includes a 2CD soundtrack, and 5 metal figurines alongside other goodies.
The normal version is £26.99, I could definitely justify if it wasn't coming out on the day I'm starting my MA - might not be a good idea to start skipping sleep around then...
I'm back fuckers :D
Shouldn't take too long, only 60 turns or so left.
egypt - prossie
england - duck
china - me
persia - started as brusma but he missed the last go, so theyve stagnated a good bit. have a good army tho
we should get this started in the next half hour or so
But i've got a cracked copy, don't think it'll let me play online
In the server ip box thing
HOWEVER if we finish this one nice and early (say 10pm) we may start a new game :)
Super chuffed with my tactical long-planning. Was going for a space victory, but realised that dood was too far ahead in the points to catch and he would probably crush us all. Changed to churning out troops to attack the Arabs, who dood also decided to attack just before I was ready. He was about to take the whole of those lands, so I paid Mali about 4000 gold to attack dood and distract him, leaving me to mop up Saladin easily and giving me enough time to get on with building spaceships before dood would realise what was happening.
all i can say is, whens the next game?
...then things would have been very different in the end game. You still would have needed to take upwards of a dozen cities within 15 turns, which would have been tight.
Sadly I'm away for two weeks from Thursday, so I'll have to sit the next one out. Might be worth playing a map that's more navy-focused next time - I only ever built two ships in that game!
I was supplying Mali with Aluminum whilst demanding gold, taking their money and arming them to fight future foes :)
as well as giving them gold to use them as a buffer between me and proslo/garycooper but I got a bit bored :D
I knew dood was spending a lot of time trying to get at his oil wells and all.
As soon as you left, as well, I started doing the same for Persia. Gave them techs and armed them to the hilt, got myself a defence pact, and sat back knowing I would be safe if anyone tried to seriously attack me.
everyone was covertly working against me?!
1. i would have done the exact same thing
2. I STILL HAD A HIGHER SCORE HA. ahem.
yeah tho, very well played prossie
But yeah, we were all playing each other off each other. Would be strange if we weren't really.
I need to figure out why I'm always so shit in the early game. Probably need to learn to use specialists better.
that's always fun
not sure when we'll do it, shame prossie will be gone cos id quite like a rematch.
so storm, 29, duck, gary, and myself? when are we all next free? im up for whenever
not rly tho, ofc youre in dude, all DiSers are welcome!
My ID on steam is mmmdizzle
also sunday/monday, could be talked into thursday
Off the the cinema tonight though.
Storm_jh on steam (I think), I'm really not much good at civ 4 mind, haha.
I can't work it out.
