Civilization VI is amazing

Just wanted to write a quick update for the blog and talk about Civilization VI. I don’t think I mentioned it in my typical day post, but from time to time I enjoy playing video games on my desktop at home. I recently picked up Civilization VI from a sale over the holiday and it has been nothing short of fantastic. I should also note that I haven’t played Civilization, or any PC game recently for that matter, in a long long time. The last Civ I played was probably Civ IV, so I skipped the 5th entry.

Are gaming PCs different from gaming laptops?

The demand for gaming PCs keeps on increasing and the main reason behind this phenomenon is because they typically have better performance than gaming consoles. A gaming PC is much better than a console because its specifications are better, they are able to provide higher end graphics and the ultra mode options work well.
