Experimenting with options for a new design language for internal application development using WPF transparency, animation, other cool stuff. Getting carried away a little maybe.

Cities: Skylines does exactly what it says on the tin, so to speak, and I highly recommend it. They say that those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it but maybe this is the exception that proves the rule... Or the exact opposite. Or something. Dunno I'm a bit pissed. Grats on 400+ anyways buddy.

It made sense at the time, although as I say, I was slightly drunk.

Like watching Lost, but with better dialogue and a much smaller cast.

I had a few of those as well, but what made the difference was having the legions to put down the revolt and return my slaves, and having the money to then free them. Gave me the prestige to just pip Ed to victory. It's a good game actually; well-balanced and interesting dynamics.
