Did You Know?

I invented Dan Quayle!

No, actually that was a joke.

I will have some important news for all of those who like computer games in the next couple of days. In the meantime, I should let you know that I have teamed up with the creative minds at Firaxis Software and we will have an important announcement for the internet community in the next couple of days.

Watch this space.

Of course, this introduction will take place over all the major gaming sites (as well as this one).

We are pleased to intoduce the iSid (not to be confused with anything that Mr Jobs may be prattling on about). This is a new connect anywhere virtual Civ player. Short of a partner for MP? - then connect the iSid remotely by wireless or bluetooth.

So, how does this differ from the usual AI? The clever part is that the iSid has been created with Sid Meier's personality and it will also mimic SId's bodily functions. For example, if the iSid is hungry it will ask for a munchie bar, it will also (depending on the difficulty level) ask to go to the bathroom or wet itself. There is also a PG rutting mode which can make the iSid an extremely aggressive and hostile opponent or an extremely pliable one depending on whether you have told it that its opponent is male or female.

The iSid is portable and will become your best friend. I am confident along with FIRAXIS games that this will take your Civ IV experience to a whole new level.

I'd like to recommend SidDinosaur avatars for multiplayer. Even a SidDinosaur military unit would be nice.

Maybe an unlockable cybertech tree with chimpcopters and rhinotanks, too.

Actually, if you implement those one or two at a time, you could release them as expansions or purchaseable DLC.

I still don't understand what Tim Berners-Lee has to do with Firaxis/Sid Meier?
