Retro Repost: What I’ve Learned About Politics And War From Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri:

well here's the deal, this is a post i love from way back in the summer of 04, and well i can't think of anything else to post today because i'm working on this damn 6 page paper that's due tomorrow(that i have 1/2 a page done) over 12 angry men, so here it is, how video games can truly reflect reality:

- Peace Is Best Kept Through Superior Firepower.
- Religious Fundies won’t stop until you beat them into the ground with their own book of scripture.
- Don’t give technology to anybody but your closest allies, and don’t even give THEM your best stuff. (You need fusion reactors? Ooooo. Sorry. Ran outta those last week.)
- Environmentalists will be the first to initiate a scorched earth campaign if you piss them off. (Boreholes?! The Greenies have BOREHOLES?!)
- Try to limit the number of factions you’re at war with at any one time to less than half the game’s total.
- Don’t sweat it if this isn’t possible. Half of them will be fighting with whipped cream pies anyway (see also: Morgan Industries)
- Militia members usually don’t have the first idea of how to actually fight.
- There’s no better feeling than to have communists surrender to you.
- Do NOT f*ck with the University unless you have overwhelming force in position to annihilate them, or you have plenty of probe teams.
- Repairing is cheaper than replacing.
- Punishment Spheres have real S&M appeal.
- Once you’ve saved their asses, just expect your “allies” to try and take you out.
- When given the choice between money and technology, take the tech.
- Try to barter all extortion tried against you down to half before just giving up and declaring war.
- Planet Busters are a pain to make, a pain to use, and will get all of your Pacts revoked for you, so only use them if you have no other choice or you really really want to.
- Diplomatic victory is for pussies.
- Having superior military tech means less money spent on building war materiel in the long run.
- Endear yourself to the natives as much as reasonable. That way, they’re more likely to pester your enemies than you.
- If you have to wage war on multiple fronts, skirmish on all but your easiest front. That way you can more quickly finish off your weakest enemies, while still being an economic drain on your other ones.

Decisions, Decisions

I know, "you said you would post more, blah blah blah......" Things have been hectic this semester, falling grades, fraternity stuff that ended up not working out due to the aforementioned falling grades, falling in love, falling out of love, falling in love again. It's just been really time consuming. So i was looking over the blog today, and i was thinking that this sucker chronicled my thoughts for well over 2 years, and i didn't want to just leave it here without a proper good bye. So i sat down and started writing this really sappy thing that was going to be posted here, but while i was writing it, i remembered why i loved this thing so much in the first place, and decided that i would keep it going. i know this is something i have said before, but you know, i remember posting on this during senior year of high school, and then checking it a year later, and in 5 years i wanna be able to to do that again. So, let's give it another shot, and who knows, it could lead to a major motion picture..........and then the end of the world.
