Excerpt: Turn-based games have always been a bit of a strange thing. The pace is always quite slow and frequently you’ll go many turns without much going on. Bringing turns to a strategy game, however, makes perfect sense, as it feels like board games of old. Pride of Nations (PoN) tries to bring this mechanic to the late 1800′s, with many different nations being available for you to play as. PoN focus isn’t on war, or economy, but rather all the aspects of running a nation.
