  1. An Exercise In Galactic Xenocide - Galactic Civilizations 2

    Some of you may have heard me talk about how Galactic Civilizations 2 is in my opinion the best game of that type (at least that I've played).
    I have a confession to make: I've actually only ever completed one GalCiv 2 game, and that was by being a race of diplomatic cowards who allied with everyone and got their allies to kill those who refused to ally.

  4. Onii-chan Yamete

    I downloaded a copy of 1984 a while back and finally got around to reading it.

    Turns out someone went through and replaced all instances of "Big Brother" with "Onii-chan"
