Gaming again

My summer job is now done, and I have just adjusted to the school rhythm. My girlfriend is studying physics and pharmacy in parallel, so I’m often alone at home with not much to do. I spend some of this time programming Knights or nTasks, but I find it hard to program when I’m tired, and I need breaks even when I’m not. So I started playing computer games again.

My current addiction is Sins of a Solar Empire. It’s a space-based real time strategy, with its characteristic property being its slowness. The game is very detailed with epic battles, so even with the slow pace it keeps you busy, but it’s quite possible to wage two or more battles at one.

The game is rather old, and it wasn’t one of the big-budget productions, so it’s relatively cheap, but both the graphics and the gameplay are really well done.
