So we set out to make the newly released Civilization V would work in CrossOver a few weeks back. I felt it was my duty to help the QA staff with the testing.
Now, way back in the day, the only time I ever seriously neglected my work, my life, and everything was when Civilization, the original, was released. I distinctly recall looking up from my computer one day, two weeks after I'd gotten it, and wondering, "What have I done!?!?!" Cleverly, I had gotten a copy for my wife, and she was busily playing as well, so I wasn't confronted with divorce the way you might expect. But let's just say I'm lucky my boss at the time wasn't paying a lot of attention to my productivity.
So I was a bit concerned when I started playing Civ V; I can't afford that sort of addiction at the moment. I have to say that I really like the game; I've always liked hexes, and I like the new one-unit-per-hex rule, particularly because it makes it easy to destroy enemy cities. But apparently I've gotten more mature with age, because it didn't take over my life or ruin my marriage (although my wife refuses to play it right now, claiming she doesn't have time for a new addiction). Of course, given my role as self appointed QA guru, I can say that it only improved my effectiveness at my job; clearly another
employee of the month award
is called for.
At any rate, I'll write more just as soon as I finish off the Iroquois...Cheers,
