The Frighteningly Modern Age: Facebook Civ

Should we be covering more social network-based gaming? Oh, probably - it's something of a gateway drug for folk who are traditionally non-gamers, which makes it fascinating. It's also a big Woo! PC! battlecry, a grand statement of how even the most bottom-end machine is a gaming device with something to offer most anyone. No console will ever be that, because they're always bought as…
