(no subject)

I am still ill, but recovering. Ick. As consolation, decided to put the gift vouchers my sister got me for Xmas towards a full version of Homeworld 2, which is quite funky. But hard-- not an RTS that gives you lots of time to hang around and build up a massive fleet. Managed to finish the third level (the one after the last one in the demo) eventually by keeping track of things properly, and actually achieving strategic objectives inside of just dousing fires all the time... fun. The back story is cheesy (more "high-tech ancient race" and "destiny" stuff) but acceptable. And the ships are lovely :}
