Free game "Crusader Kings"

Anybody here want a free legal copy of the game Crusader Kings. It's kind of like the Sims just with grand strategy and with a lot political tools like assassination you can use on rivals family members and otherwise.

I have only one, so the first asking for it, gets it.

And in honor of my rapidly expanding Norse(reformed) empire, who is spreading fear in Christian Europa some picture from Fyrkat museum

My farvorite game Crusader Kings 2 is on sale steam

If you like strategy games with a personal touch. You can't go wrong with this game.

You are playing as the head of a dynasty. And your goal such is expand your family prestige and power. To that you have a range of tools for that including marriage, military, and good old cloak and dagger. Most of your problems are internal from vassals, but if you are not in good term with the Holy Roman Empire and the pope dislike you, then suddenly you whole realm can be in danger.

But mostly it is the family who gives most problems, as every computer generated entities has their own individual traits, that you have take inconsideration. For example after crushing an rebellion, I gave away some of the confiscated counts away to my nearest family, one of them my brother. Who was a pretty average guy and very important not ambitious, what I didn't had calculated with, was that his wife was a genius and ambitious, so after some years was she building a powerful coalition around her husband. I got her first to back down, after getting proof, of her being in assassination plot against me.

the developer has made short commercials building, over the seven deadly sins, and rather funny

As we all know, this is Søren Kierkegaard 200 year birthday

And one the many arrangements to celebrate this, is a small photo competition Over the themes Seduction/Forførelse, Doubt/Tvivl and Angst/Angst.

Not that I have a close relation to Søren Kierkegaard mostly I know him, from what I know from an book introduction to his works, that I read in my teens and what I have picked up on street corners

Those three are what I send in.

Seduction
Forførelse

and the next two here )

Art? and Roger Ebert

I like games, mostly thou strategy and rpg. So when I got recommend the documentary "Indie Game" on Netflix I watched it, and found it highly captivating. The documentary follows three indie game developer, and the passions that they lays into it is fascinating. A scene that made a particularly impression on me, was one where the developer of the game Braid, looked back on his critical and commercially successful game Braid, you could hear him say very emotional, that he was disappointed, that people only looked at on the surface, and not the thematics and the personal dialog he was trying to create.

Roger Ebert was frank in his view, that games could not be art. Many disagreed on the Internet, and probably nobody changed theirs view, at least Roger Ebert didn't. In the Brian Moriarty's 'Apology for Roger Ebert' the former game designer talks about what is art, and why games are not. Takes about 56 min. and elegant lectured.

Sometimes you go home, but not really

My hometown is a small town, its get a few lines in the Lonely Planet guide book. It have lost much of it's former industries from my childhood, gained a few new ones, but not really a place in growth.

When I was home in the Christmas I took walk from my old home and walked into the center and back, i would guess the trip would take me about 40 to 50 min. if I was without a camera.

Hello future, nice that you are


Interesting Brian Gibson interview, where he also talks about about his book Neuromancer. And he says about it, that he didn't think that the book future as particular dark, because there was a future, and not a nuclear wasteland. I don't think that newer generations have the same back ground fear of humanity total annihilation, that many us had growing up in eighties have/had. I can still remember, that we had in school an officer from the national guard* (they are mostly volunteer corpse) and he talked about, that city we lived was a naval base, and therefore a logical target for a nuclear strike, and what we could do, after the bomb had fallen....

The big east west conflicted has disappeared, and mutated into a host of overlapping regional conflicts. But the bombs are still there, and we can still destroy our own specie many time over.
Enjoy The Silence

Funny little thing about the danish national guard, after the Warzav pact fall, there have been found strategic papers, that recommended that in case of invasion just destroy the country with nukes, as the size of national guard did, that to many troops would be bound up in an invasion. And here in Denmark, it's not highly respected corps, it's considered by many a waste of money spending it on "weekend warriors".
