I don't know. For some reason I never could get CS:S to run right on our laptop.
But I'm glad it works on yours.
And Sins of a Solar Empire is a wonderful game from about 2008. It's an RTS 4X sub-genre. It means Explore-Expand-Exploit-Exterminate. Basically it's based several thousand years in the future and the people of Earth have begun colonizing the stars and 2 unknown enemy factions (Vassari & Advent) come up out of no-where and there is this epic space battle between the 3 factions. But there are mods that add (or are adding) in the Flood, Covenant, and Humans from Halo. There is a mod for Start Trek. A mod for Babylon 5. Two Stargate mods adding in the Wraith, Gould, Ancients, Humans, and Asgard. And tons of other mods.
There is also a micro expansion called Entrenchment which is awesome, as well as a second micro expansion called Diplomacy. While it's not out yet, if you pre-order, you can be a beta tester and get the game before it's out.
(I'm really looking forward this expansion).
