    There was an article written awhile back here at bit-tech about a strategy game and I've been trying to recall the name for about 2 days. I've searched and searched and can't seem to track it down. I believe the article was more of a discussion/blog style than a review.

    The game was a vast strategy game and in the article he (whoever the author was) talked about how they would wake up at night to check the progress because sending your ships from point A to point B often took forever. And how in the time you might have sent 90% of your units to attack one place just to find out that you were being attacked and wouldn't have time to bring your units back before you were destroyed. It was a humorous article and better yet the game sounded really appealing.

    Can anyone help me remember what the title was?

    Neptune's Pride? The epic, life-ruining, browser-based title that can take 6 weeks to finish a game.

    I think a bit-tech game is also overdue... :D

    I'm up for a BT game if someone want to organise it. Might be better after the new year however.

    Hmm, it has been some time since THE EVIL PROFESSOR has had a go at me.
    I have to wait until exams is over though. 14th of January and I am free.

    Neptune's Pride frustrates me. I was almost winning in one game, only for all of the other players to attack my weakest point and get to my core - where my main production stars were.
