Today's the final day of E3 2011, and while you've no doubt been consuming nothing but crazy news about new and upcoming titles, I'd like to ask you all to take a step back, slow your roll, and cherish one of the greatest games ever created: GoG has finally released Sid Meier's Alpha Centurai for a great price of $5.99. Sadly, it doesn't come with the great expansion pack, Alien Crossfire, but trust me when I say, vanilla Alpha Centurai is still the most solid, well-rounded Turn Based Strategy title I've ever played, and that's coming from someone who loves them some strategy games.
Hell, even if you don't like turn-based strategy, I'd recommend it. Know this going in, though: This is pretty 'hard' sci-fi (not necessarily in difficulty, but in references to science fiction lore), but don't let that keep you away. This is one of the few games I'd call a literal masterpiece of the medium, and should be installed on every gamer's harddrive.
Why? Cause I said so, and I'm a guy on the internet. How can you go wrong?
