A new Sid Meier game you say?
« on: March 16, 2006, 12:58:14 pm »
Firaxis is making two new games, Sid Meier's Railroads and CivCity:  Rome.  They also announced an expansion pack for Civ IV titled Warlords.  Anyway, I'm pretty excited about this, Firaxis games are always good.  To me, Sid Meier's Railroads seems like a recreation of RailRoad Tycoon which was an utterly amazing game.  Nothing terribly orriginal with CivCity:  Rome either, but I think it's still worth to be excited about.

I've no real interest in railroads, but then, I had no real interest in an expansion to alpha centauri, and look how THAT turned out. I'll probally try it and love it. <sigh>
I am rather interested in the rome one though, hope it doesn't turn into another ceaser. (A great game in its own right, but who needs more than...what is it, four now?)

Railroads! Great!

Anyone that knows me knows I LOVE trains!!!


I am banking that this makes Railroad Tycoon and TRAINZ look like crap.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
