Never played any of the Civ games, but have always heard good things about them.

:o seriously? I'm not much of a gamer but I quite enjoy it every once in a while (mostly city/empire building and strategy) and Civilization is definitely one of the best games ever for me... Spent hours on Civ II years ago haha.

Civ has been primarily PC (though it is on consoles now) and I rarely play on PC (especially as I have a near 10 year old MacBook). Only games I generally played were Football Manager type games, strategy games like Command and Conquer and StarCraft and, ironically, the likes of Sim City and Rollercoaster Tycoon.

That mod looks absolutely insane mind.

Rollercoaster Tycoon was class! As for SimCity, I generally love city building and simulation, but never got into it for some reason... It was all about Civ, Age of Empires, Pharaoh, Caesar (and the rest of Sierra series) and Tropico for me. Funnily enough I didn't even have a PC until I started uni, used to play at a friend's and later at my boyfriend's where I learnt to enjoy watching other people play xD ... Good times.

RT with cheats so that you could build as high as you want was amazing. Used to almost break the atmosphere with some of my rides, if the passengers didn't like and/or die then it wasn't good enough.

Trying to debate whether to get a PS4 or just wait for the 5 in a year or two. I get little time as it is, but RDR2 has tested my patience for waiting.

Didn't have a cheat, but remember creating a 'loop the loop' coaster with high speed and no barrier at the end. Got bored, cranked the speed up to max, they flew off and died. Had to sell it as no one would go on it again. Very disappointed.

Thinking of RT, you can buy the original duo on mobile now.

So I have a short break from work and haven't got any plans, and thought I'll play some Civ IV. To make things interesting, I decided to download a mod that I've heard a lot about in the past but never got around to actually trying it out. Well... Damn, my mind is blown; the scope of the mod is absolutely insane! It's called Caveman2Cosmos and the name says it all - it covers over 200000 years of history where you start as a prehistoric tribe of wandering homo-sapiens and strive to develop it into an intergalactic empire throughout the eras of history. It has over 1000+ technologies, an unknown number of new units, buildings, religions, nations, civics, traits and completely new game feature called "properties" which brings crime, diseases, tourism, education into play. It's going to take me forever, but it's amazing... 

Just look at those technology trees for each era (and that's not a recent pic so the mod has even more of them now):

Prehistoric

No, it's been first announced 10 years ago and is still being updated, last update was released in June this year and it's still in active development (fully playable though!) :o It's seriously class, I've never seen or played anything like this before. The level of detail is unbelievable; you literally start as a band of hominids and have to research pretty much everything from scratch, even things like gathering wild berries or developing a language. I'm currently in year 58000 BC (i.e. almost 150000 years have passed from where I started), and I just invented the plough and the pulley and learned to do irrigation... It truly feels like an anthropological study of humanity dressed as a game; I wish we had something like that in history classes haha. It's overwhelming, but in a good sense. Seriously, I can't recommend it highly enough!

Yes Civ IV and Beyond the Sword expansion is necessary!

Music to my ears. I bought but never got into Civ 5 and I believe there's a Civ 6 but couldn't tell you for sure. Civ 4 was the one I sunk days of my life into, probably weeks, and after downloading BTS I never went back to the vanilla game.

Thanks for the tip off!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, let me know what you think! 

Also, not sure if you started the game already, but if not, you might want to set the difficulty a bit higher... I selected the easiest option as I thought I'd be too overwhelmed, but I find myself well ahead of the AI players.

I've been working away on Ass Creed Origins still the game is bloody massive. Im about to hit level 30 as far as I can see it goes up until 40ish so i figure im 3/4's through. The game overall has been fun my interest has waned at times as theres been a decent amount of nothingness in some areas when traveling between places. Overall the game looks absolutely beautiful, the mechanics are fun, I like that theres quite a few style of weapons that are all unique in the combos and attacks; speaking of which I just got my first cursed weapon, a spear that reduces your health to 30% when equipped but nearly 1 shots alot of the regular foes.

I've got nothing but ps4 games on my wishlist for christmas bascially so Ill catch up eventually. Still want to get to Hitman, now theres Hitman 2, God of War, Red dead and Horizon.

Over 80 hours in and I'm doing Yakuza Kiwami 2 on legend difficulty to fully finish the game. 

I also never want to try mahjong again. ¬¬

That is going to be some serious backlog playing. Can't speak much for the Hitman series but those last three are pure gold and I'd even rate GoW higher than RDR and Horizon (which I thought was one of the best games i played in 2017)

Finally put Tomb Raider to bed and it was a good game honestly. Bit draggy at points and the side missions are not so well thought out at times but its enjoyable for the money you pay. I wish they'd done more to make it challenging even on higher difficulties. Most of the acclaimed puzzle solving in tombs was way too straight-forward and lacked any real challenge as well. Last in the series too so it will be nice to see who takes a stab at it next.

Now, back into RDR and hopefully  done before the Xmas season comes around and Smash Bros. takes over.

Is that the new Tomb Raider or one of the earlier ones?

Once I've done Yakuza Kiwami 2 (which I hope is no later than the end of the month), Smash Bros is definitely next with Red Dead 2 afterwards.

The nice thing about being so backlogged is by the time I get around to buying these they are all under 50$ xD GOW is on for 30$ I think for black friday deals so im definitely picking that up and probably leaning towards playing that next anyways Im glad its highly rated because Ive loved the series so far. Ill keep an eye on hitman and RDR, not to mention Ill have to get AC Odyssey down the road too. Horizon I can borrow but my brother said he has like 90 hours into it, I dont get time to play every week so that task seems pretty daunting.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to it as well. From all the announcements now made, it looks more than worthy of its Ultimate title.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is now fully completed and it's now the waiting game for Smash Bros.

Coming tomorrow. Got that and asked for Red Dead Redemption 2 for Christmas so this'll be fun.

Can't wait. I've heard the Joker (Persona 5) is a character in the DLC.

You're correct. He's the first of the five DLC characters.

As for me, I've just started to play Smash so no games might as well be released for the next few months.

I started playing it again this morning and I lost a lot of time just looking at all the levels they've got in there. One of my favorites is the Game + Watch style level they have in there and how it keeps changing.

You can have a stage morph in this as well. Pick two stages and it'll change between them during a fight.

EDIT: Started the World of Light and trying to unlock characters as I go. Got a fair amount to unlock and do, though have got Sonic and Bowser at least, so happy with that.
