Anyone played Civ VI? I don't care about eye candy or soundtracks, I want a deep strategy game not something "streamlined" for today's technopeasants.
XCOM2 is cheap enough that I'll probably buy it. The XCOM remake was half decent, hard to believe the original game on my 486SX could handle maps 10x the size of the remake on modern hardware. Apparently they've rediscovered the secret lore of destructible terrain for XCOM2 which really annoyed me from the first remake.
In other gaming related news I recently read the Witcher novels, a few thoughts below the fold.
So I've been (off and on) obsessed with Kerbal Space Program for the couple years or so.
As my mastery of game mechanics and orbital mechanics has grown, I've gotten fussier about my missions. I'm no longer happy to merely get a probe to wherever, I want to get there in style, via an efficient trajectory, minimal waste and orbital debris, and as much launch platform re-use as possible.
This can be very (real life) time consuming, especially using spaceplanes where you have to carefully manage your ascent and be hypervigilant during the descent and landing.
Since KSP is an enormous nerd magnet of course someone has modded in a scripting language, and of course I've started to write my own autopilot routines.

In other news I'd been procrastinating on taking the what.cd interview and now they've been shut down. I'll have to try to get into one of the successors but I probably don't have the proper SERIOUS BIZNESS attitude to get into a site during the current turmoil.
