|My military is over 9,000!|
I’m fighting off the impulse to buy “Gods & Kings” for Civilization V. I want to get it when it goes on sale or the price lowers, but I want it pretty badly. The game now feels incomplete when I read about the tales of religious intrigue and espionage from other players. At any rate, I finally loaded up the (incomplete) game in an attempt to rule on high as Arabian sultan. It didn’t work out. I lost by score to the unbelievable Egyptian empire. At one point a military rating came out which placed me around 2000 and the Ottomans (my closest rivals, but allies) at 4000. Egypt was at 15,000. I’ve never seen anything like that before.
|Shai, Nimla & Elden as White Mage|
Final Fantasy XIV has been a lot of fun the last two weeks. I’ve been working really hard at getting all the new jobs unlocked. Completing those quests isn’t a small feat. Just yesterday, I joined (and later re-organized) a pick-up group into Dzemael Darkhold in order to get White Mage and Monk artifact armor. I’ve been plugging away at side-quests and camp achievements when I’m solo. Pretty soon, though, I’m going to need to set my sights higher. I need to defeat some pretty fierce bosses, and conquer some dungeons. The relic weapons loom beyond my reach as well.
