New Civilization 4 Expansion Pack

I am quite a nerd, but I pride myself on maintaining a solid connection with reality. Even when something sucks me in, I keep perspective. Yet this system sort of breaks down where Civilization is concerned. I could play any of the iterations of that game (and have) to the physical limits of my body to go without sleep and food. And now Firaxis is releasing a new add-on to the latest version of this crack-on-a-disc called Beyond the Sword. The additions make Civ IV operate much more like the original civilization, with a medieval UN, old-school invisible spies and espionage available in the early game, and the old spaceship system is back -- that is, you can launch at any time during the construction process, and the one who reaches Alpha Centauri first wins.

There's even a scenario... IN SPAAAACE. My August is officially shot.

The Last Stand

My friend Greg sent me a link to this awesome zombie game. For being free and made in Flash, it's really high end. Kill zombies, protect the barricade, send out search parties for weapons and survivors. Sweet!
