Once upon a time I made a blog about video games. And this is what's left of it (mostly tweets).

Civilization Revolution (360 demo)

The developers know they’re fighting an uphill battle convincing gamers that a console-based Civilization can be worth anything, so they released what appeared to be a pretty big demo — at least so far as I can tell, having given up after about half an hour.

The thing is, that kind of games isn’t my cup of tea at all, and I grow bored pretty quickly; still, I’d say the gameplay and interface are pretty good. Like reviewers said, you’re not going to find the same depth as on a PC version, but someone who cares about that kind of stuff should very easily be able to spend long days in front of their TV. The question being, of course, why would they want to? Is there anyone really who’ll be interested in Civilization but won’t already own and play the PC version?

And why do they have to speak simlish?
