Sins of a Solar Empire and Me: A Story of Addiction, Heartache, and True Love

It's nice to see I'm not the only one with that "just one more turn" syndrome... While I'm not particularly competent with RTS games, I've been a big fan of the Civ series, and space versions like MoO 2 and the Galactic Civ series especially. Looks like I'll have to try this one out. I'm not afraid of the game, it's the RTS aspect that will kick my butt...


Try to be smarter than the object you're working with! It will make things easier, and might just save your life...



It's nice to know I'm not the only one addicted to 4X games. I have been a fan of Civilization since the first version in 1991. I missed days worth of sleep and forgot to eat many times. I was in high school then and I'd go to school in a fog, thinking about how best to take over another country while everyone around me was worrying about how to pop their next pimple -- idiots.
Every Civ edition after that was just better and better and I still find myself thinking about tactics, etc while at work. I actually could see Firaxis (the company who now makes Civ franchise) sitting at a congressional hearing and each executive taking his/her turn saying, "I believe Civilization is NOT addictive..." the way big tobacco did.
What have they done to us? I don't care, I love it!
