I am not sure the developers of the new Star Trek game know what Star Trek is, because it isn't Gears of War, it isn't Doom, Left4Dead or Deadspace. There are lots of games out there that have these standard sets of cannon fodder. If this was an SG1 game or a Star Wars game I would have said fine, but this is supposed to be Star Trek.

I don't normally link to short stories, but I will to The Last Question by Isaac Asimov because I really liked it. It is a story about Humanitie's relationship with the universe's eventual state of entropy. It was published in 1956 which was a year before Sputnik and the year that IBM announced their first hard disk storage unit. Yet the story being written in a time when electronics used a lot of vacuum tubes, it is still very reliant and doesn't feel dated.

I bought Crusader Kings II hoping for a game that was slightly more complex than Risk and slightly less complex than any of the Total War series as I always struggle with the simulated battlefields (mainly I don't have the patients for that kind of battle). But what I got was a game that is so insanely complex that I find it impenetrable. I might give it another go in a few weeks, but at the moment I find the whole relationship structure of the game to be very difficult. But while reading up on the game I found out about the Game Of Throne Mod which if you like the TV series will probably have instant appeal to you.
