This day in history from:


I did not mention I bought a new PS3 game last Saturday called Civilization: Revolution.

I got addicted to the Civilization series when I was in fourth year law school, with the first of the series for Windows 3.1. I remember starting the game at 8:00 p.m. after I come home from school. Then I got surprised the was already shining when the game ended.

It's that addictive.

I even credit that game for ruining my dean's list streak, because my grades really suffered that first semester.

The game play for this incarnation for the PS3 has the same addictive elements: turn-based strategy (as opposed to real-time strategy games like Starcraft series), technology-based progress (and not resources-based). It's like a chess game. Only longer.

The graphics and the eye candy are, of course, top notch, especially of you compare ithemto the first one to which I was addicted. But what I missed in the PS3 version was the "Let me play a few more turns," feature which made the original (as well as the PC versions) very addictive. In this console version, you have to start a new game when you achieve any type of victory.

Surprisingly, the controls were very good. They managed to pull this one off, without the need for the mouse. Also, I'm greatly satisfied in the way they construct roads. Good thing this does not take too much time.

But all things considered, it's a good game. I'd recommend it to you if you like this kind of game.

In another front, Bea and I watched "Star Wars: Clone Wars" today. I did not like it much since it can't contribute much to a story line that has already been completed. So it was no surprise that this appeared to be a side story.

Of course with the free movies privilege, I'm going to get addicted to watching movies soon enough...

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
