    Nice article from Gamespy about Soren's recent speech at the GDC.

    Anyway, I loved this line:
    in order to make for the most interesting game possible, the AI often cheats ;)

    I'm no programmer, so the article gave me some pause to consider some of the things that the developers have to ponder in a game of this style. I would recommend any Civ fan to read it.

    "This talk will be a bit of milestone for me as, presumably, this will be the last time I’ll be giving such an extensive talk on Civ. In fact, I feel a little sheepish about giving it as a non-Firaxis employee. I’m so used to getting feedback from my old colleagues on my presentations that I can’t seem to shake the feeing that now I’m just some dude spouting off about Civ, and the world already has plenty of those!"

    LOL!
