Avast Yee Landlubber

Cool, Games

Yee olde pirates is back from the days of the Amiga, and by the looks of it, it will be brilliant !! Sid Meier's Pirates! . Out 17th November.

That's right, Sid Meier, the bloke who made the civ games, railroad tycoon, etc etc...

So what's Pirates like, well, its a bit adventure game with find the treasure, etc, a bit "elite" with buying and selling and the occasional plunder (well quite a lot of that actually), and a bit street fighter in the sword fighting sections - defend, defend, attack, up-left. And the sailing and attack bits of the game look cool as ever. I remember the days of - "quick follow him", "no he's in a barque and we've got a galleon with sail dammage, we'll never catch him" or "shoot, shoot him some more, whoops, that's too much, his power kegs have gone and he's sank will all the booty".
