Well, my semester is currently hell. But the weather report forcasts a severe break in the storm front on April 20, and I fully plan to reward myself. Now, my primary form of reward is going to be to go to a bunch of minor league baseball games, a trip to Chicago and possibly a camping trip. But I also need to plan for that stretch of rain that will pile up during some midweek in May.
And to the Teeming Millions I turn. I need a good strategy game. I would prefer something turn-based. Something I can save at 4:00am and turn back on when I get back from work. For the record, I love Civilization I/II, and am considering Civ III. But then I saw Heroes of Might and Magic IV in the computer store at lunch today, and it looks fantastic.
So I did a cursory search on GameSpot to see what good strategy games are out there - and it looks like there’s a bunch. And I can’t possibly comprehend and process all of that information. I imagine that there are several Dopers who have a pretty good grasp on the market out there, and can give me an idea of what I’m looking at.
Also, I should mention that I don’t want something that’s primarily multiplayer - I don’t have the time or dedication (or connection) for something so complicated.
You guys rock.
