Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword

I recently purchased Civ 4 BTS. I have to say I am quite impressed by the additions to Civ 4 in this expansion. Civ 4 has always been a strong title in the gaming world. BTS adds some realism that Civ was lacking, and makes for a more interesting gaming experience. If you like Strat games of any kind you should surely try Civ4: BTS.

SimTower: Review, 'Cheats' and Guide

Ah yes, an old classic. SimTower was released in 1994. Yet it is still a very viable and entertaining game.

The basic premise of the game is to construct a 5 star tower. To do this you have to build many different services and various types of commercial and residential spaces in your building. And you have to interconnect these services and spaces with a maze of elevators, stairs and escalators. All while keeping everyone happy, and maintaining a profit.

Each star rating you achieve, allows you to construct more items for your tower.

Tonawanda Coal Generating Station

I happen to live only a few blocks away from one of the nations worst polluting coal power plants. I have always been a fan of Nuclear energy, but after taking the time to read through the list of toxins generated at said plant, I am now even more pro Nuclear. I was bored and looking up some general information about the plant, because I didn't know much about it. Well, turns out that of 30 power plants in this list, this plant next door was the worst.
