Eh-hum # 17

Where was I? Oh yeah...

Before anything else, let me tell you that this is the FIRSt HOMEMADE POST in this here fine blog. Well, we switched internet servers you see, and we now pay less than a thousand pesos for an unlimited surfing experience. Uh-huh. It it is still dial-up, but who cares? It's UNLIMITED!

Now, what are we talking about? Oh, yeah, the games. PC games to be exact.

It started when my sister borrowed her friend's Star Craft. She played that series with much vigilance. I didn't get the chance to play it, but I was watching her from behind. It was cool, until our computer crashed. Bye, bye Raynor and Protoss.

Then there was Battle Realms. I played only the skirmish part, I have difficulty playing the story mode (or whatever you called it) because I was afraid of them Lotus. My favorite clan was the Dragon because they have the Samurai and the Geishas looked cute in their costumes. All was well, and then my brother brought home another one: Age of Empires. This one I really like. You get to choose from a wide range of ancient cultures, create an empire, have alliances, trade with others and crush the enemy. This strategic game gratifies my authoritarian tendencies. It’s therapeutic...really.

I was starting to enjoy this game, when BAM! Our computer crashed for the second time. That's when we made up our mind not to put games in our PC. It was sad, sad, sad. And then there was hope.

The hope was my computer at work, which has a lot (and I mean, A LOT) of storage space. Given the circumstances, I borrowed my officemate's Age of Empires CD (with expansion) and now am merrily crushing the Minoans/Canaanites. Yep, I know it’s inappropriate but hey, I PROMISED TO PLAY AFTER OFFICE HOURS (or before, hweheh). It’s a good thing: now I am looking forward coming to work…like, really early. While I am unable to play the Sims, I can now create my own ancient empire and enjoy annihilating all rival territories. That's the start. Then, I'll conquer Asia as a powerful Shogun. :)
