The new civilization IV: Beyond the sword expansion is coming soon. In preparation I played a few games of Civ IV warlords again and I must say, it’s still very good. Beyond the swords will add a lot of nice new features. Especially the corporations and improved new AI sounds good. I preordered my copy from gameplay.co.uk, and it’s usually delivered around the official release date.
Even if you’re only remotely interested in RTS games, grab the latest episode of tales of heroes. It’s a replay of a very long and close game of Company of Heroes with very entertaining and sometimes hilarious commentary by Bridger and Vitensby.
Is Company of Heroes the first game that supports Vista’s DirectX 10 ? It looks nice from the few screenshot over at the gamereplays forum, but not that much spectacular from DX9. So dont rush out yet to get that Nvidia 8800 card, unless you got too much money burning in your pockets ;).
