View Full Version : Civ ... um ... III?

14-09-2005, 20:44:03
I bought a gaming mag last week and it came with Civ III. The funny thing is I bought a video mag and it came with a free movie DVD + a Civ III extension (Don't ask me which one, probably a patch with goodies).

I installed that game on my laptop (this whole thread is to show you how cool I am owning a laptop. I know it was cool when XFiles season 3 was on TV, but I didn't have one then so ...) and played it and ...

you guess what happened to me

you puked yourself to death?

... a purple slimy arm came crashing through the screen and grabbed you by the throat. In your horror you stood up and stumbled backwards with this arm still clamped round your throat and the laptop dangling off the end of it. Then you managed to grab a pair of nail clippers and you attempted to clip through the soft purple smelly flesh while you yourself turned a shade of purple through asphyxiation. Then you passed out. I imagine you came round to find that your house had been trashed and there were weird gurgling and groaning noises coming from your cellar.

Am I close?

Sid Meier came over, gave you a hand job, and then fisted you.

The sad thing is I missed him. He was here promoting Pirates a year ago. Damned!

Pirates have no honor!!

Yeah, I get those now and again...about once every 6 months or a year...

15-09-2005, 12:54:25
Never played it.

I still get the urge to play Cic II, is that honorable?

15-09-2005, 13:26:36
will it make any difference if it is?

15-09-2005, 13:31:24
No, but I just like to keep track of how much everyone hates and mocks me. For death list purposes.

15-09-2005, 14:23:34
You can't cram any more at the top.

15-09-2005, 14:38:30
Don't tell me what I can't do.

15-09-2005, 20:25:04
you cannot bite your own back -FACT!!!!!

15-09-2005, 20:32:57
Sure I can. All I have to do is stretch my neck like those crazy Africans.

Is that the new Douglas Lenat DARPA-funded knowledge base-ish pretend AI?

You're not supposed to know about that.

I played 2 games last week and put it back away. The Double Your Pleasure mod is really nice, but even that couldn't hold my interest past 0AD in a third game.

Back to TS2.

Yeah, I kept buying the expansions out of some stupid sense of loyalty but the game just couldn't keep my interest. It's actually very boring.

17-09-2005, 17:37:10
yes, very

19-09-2005, 22:03:31
Didn't you once give Civ 3 away Vince?

20-09-2005, 00:09:43
maybe he failed :)

21-09-2005, 08:13:52
Yes, I did. But it returned on that CD from the gaming magazine. It's stalking me!
