Trying out a new boardgame at a friends place. As the name suggest it’s about building power plants to provide electricity to the cities. I think it’s a cool game, with a lot of tactic and little luck. Which is fun. You need plenty of time when playing, especially the first time. The reason is that every round is split up into five phases. With buying buildings, material to produce electricity, and buying buildings.
Geek-Art.net have some pretty rad game art which you can order for w whopping €40. Which is pretty expensive if you ask me, but if anyone want to buy one for a gift to me I would forever appreciate it.
These are my four favorite.

Today I got some new games. Been a long time since last time. This time it was Bioshock 2 Rapture Edition for the PS3. I’m probably not going to play it, as I didn’t like the original Bioshock. So this one goes next to my Bioshock Special Edition. I also got Fuel and Dark Sector for my Xbox 360. I haven’t heard much about Dark Sector before I friend of mine said it was a great game last Sunday. So I thought, why not get a great game since it’s on sale? Hopefully I will get some time to try it out this weekend. Fuel was a game I just bought because it was really cheap. I had tried the demo before, and didn’t really like the arcade feeling. When I tried it again today, it was the same feeling. For me, it feels to easy (I know I can change the difficulty). I don’t really have to time my turns and watch out for trees and such coming at me. As long as I don’t hit them straight on. The big open area do seems like fun, but since you can’t do tricks in the air you can’t really use the big jumps you find to something fun. The career isn’t that much fun either, just the same on slightly different tracks. I did get around 100 gamescore for an hour play which is always a plus.
I also downloaded the Nail’d demo today. Looks and play a lot like Pure, but not as fun. It’s to much of an arcade game. Just full throttle all the way, and boost when you have enough nitro. Even though you only can ride ATV’s and MX’s, you can’t trick on the massive jumps. Pure is so much better. Hopefully it will support split-screen which Pure sadly lacks.
