Ships Ahoy - Diplomacy

Diplomacy arrives in stores on GameSpot announces that the latest PC edition of the classic board game is arriving in North American Stores. Here's word on Paradox Interactive's adaptation:

The game features single-player and online and LAN multiplayer modes, a graphical negotiation language that makes the act of diplomacy the same whether you're dealing with other players or artifical intelligence, an in-depth tutorial, and online ranking ladders, tournaments, and matchmaking services.

This could be one of those games just best left to the cardboard and bits world. The one released a few years ago (maybe 5 years now) had abysmal AI and the interface wasn't very intuitive. I think this could be playable now that VOIP is more widely used, but Diplomacy really needs to be played one of two ways...either face to face, or via email. Both of these ways gives players the ability to discuss strategy/create alliances at length...something a little harder to do in a chat window.
