Using Your Mind For Evil
At long last, I get to be Dr. No. There's a new game coming out for the PC called Evil Genius." It's a simulation where you get to be a 1960's criminal mastermind, building a secret underground lair, stealing monuments, and plotting to take over the world. It reminds me a lot of "Dungeon Keeper," where it reverses the usual game formula and lets you be the one foiling the efforts of secret agents and soldiers trying to stop you. You can build traps to stop them or unleash your evil army. I watched the demo movie and it looks great. Hope it lives up to its hype.
