Bought Rise of Nations last Friday and am still not sure what to think of it. It looks like a combination of Risk (the board game) and Civilization, that is when playing the ‘Conquer the World’ variant. Neat sea battles though, although I find it hard to believe my ‘dreadnoughts’ could be sunk by sailing boats. Or that sailing boats survive a good bunch of torpedoes. Umm. No. I should have gone for something else. Euro 2004 for example.
Alfons dug this one out: In Europe, Elvis hits may become public domain after 2005. I think that would be pretty neat. Or see Slashdot discussion. We can finally have Cliff Richard as website-background-music (says Alan).
