EsCaPIsM



That's what my brother said of me when I spent 2 days playing Civilisation3 ( yeah old game )
Trying to role play someone more powerful ?
Reading books that gets me lost into someone else's life ?
Drinking so as to forget who am I ?
Playing mahjong to get me engrossed in cards for hours and hours to pass time ?

Are we all trying to escape from who we are ?

His comment hit me
And he is right. We are always escaping.
 
 
 
 
 
 
it's ok and fun even to escape, once in a while... just don't run too far, too long...

Everything in moderation, just like the Doctor prescribed.

hey! I dig Civ3 too... though I'd much prefer Alpha Centauri.
Civ3 is an old game?

Erm... I just started playing it yesterday....
Was released last year, I think. Not as good as Civ2 if u ask me. They took out the Wonders movies in favour of animated 3D (not to mention memory guzzling) units... and dont like cultural influence as borders concept... But enjoyable if you're a Civ fan.

Oh, they have Civ the Planet (or somehting like that) It's an online realtime game... Haven't tried it though...
Hmmm... think the cultural influence concept's not bad. Gives you an incentive to build and can actually corner in an enemy's borders.

Still trying to get used to the new rules/gameplay though.
All in all, it's a very fun game. =)
hey LAO JIAN HUO!!! you started playing also meh!!!
fun rite?? HEHE

I miSS YOU!!!!
Yeah wor wor~! Fun Fun Fun~! Played till 2 am again last night. Hehehe~!

Have always enjoyed stragey empire building wargames like Master of Magic, Civilisation, Warlords, etc etc.

Miss YoU ToO WoR WoR~!!!

GiBe you MuaCkS~!
Issit? Bloody hell i was playing until i was quite powerful then bloody hell reached a point where the computer always hang after i started building a new city!!!
bloody hell!
Then again , i'd never played alpha centauri

I love heroes of Might and magic series. and tell me about Diablo2.

::stays at home and escapes into my own imagination::
Hmmmm... never had this problem leh... even though the cities are like New New Xxxxxx... Maybe u should D/L the updates/patches from the site.

Alpha Centauri's fun. Well it's almost the same thing but I kinda enough it more 'cos of the alien setting...

Heroes of MM. Don't really like the graphics, kinda too cartoony for me...

::walks into dreamscape, turns back, offers hand to yubin::

come away with me...
Ever played Empire Galactica II? The graphics and gameplay is totally awesome, especially the space battles. You can even change your camera view to one of the the fighters and watch a pseudo-starwars battle of your own making~!!!

Problem is, it's quite difficult to play as each technological advancement takes hell of a long time and there's so many different areas of advancement. Not to mention that you need different sets of units for space and ground battles.

Sigh... also, once I've reach a certain point of technological advancement and a certain type of battleship fires it's weapon during battle, my pc crashes.

*** SoBs ***

Am not sure if it's because it's a pirated copy or my pc is unable to cope with the load.
Hai....
You and ur wandering mind :P
hahaha is that supposed to be good??
=P

::wanders away again::
that's why i go running in the middle of the night...

run run run run run run...

feels good when you run and everything is behind you...
there question then again is...
why must you run to escape your problems??


::runs::
hehehe...

why u run??

scared i do wat cowie do to me arh?? hehehehe -> here

anyway... its not more about running away from it... but... it not being able to catch up with you...

once u stop running... u have to face it again like any other thing...
errr...if we dun do all these, what are we gonna do?

Trying to role play to realise the powerful potential in us?
Reading books that make us better by learning others' lives?
Drinking to test out our body tolerance?
Playing mahjong to spend quality time wif our mj buddies?
... ... Positive thinking eh?
... ...

Ok let's get drunk tomorrow.....

errr.... hope i am on the right track...
haiz i told u before u din listen to me. ur brother tells u and it becomes an LJ entry... sigh...
u can always pour hot wax if u like...

hehehehehe

*sacrifice
I prefer gagging and wipping
