Civilization V - The Thread
« on: 14-03-2010, 20:03:29 »
Trailer http://www.fz.se/filmer/20100302/civilization-5-announcement-trailer/
Pictures http://www.fz.se/spel/sid-meiers-civilization-5

So, another Civilization game once again. Same story for me, I keep telling myself I don't want it. Saying I've played the previous games and I know what it's about.

Still, halfway through the this teaser I'm sold. I'm a whore for Civilization.

Just started up Civilization IV: Beyond the sword...

For I am thy whore, sweet Civilization.

Same! I fucking love Civ4, I loved Civ3, and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love Civ5.

I never got into 3. We played 4 with my friend but it was too boring. I'm not going to even download this game  ::).

I held out for the AGA version.   ;D

But yeah I love Civ games.  When I am not dicking about with something FH related on here I am usually playing Civ4 with friends over LAN.  Hell even my wife likes the game.  Though I spend most of my game bailing her out of some messy war she got herself into.

Some little news tidbits.

I like Civ4's menu song... "Baba yetu, yetu uliey" Or something like that.  Christian songs sung in swahili FTW

I think it'll be awesome, not just because it's the newest episode in the series but mainly because I really thought Civilization 4: Beyond the sword was a good long step in the right direction with more espionage and events

Hope these parts will develop more and more and take a even bigger part in Civilization V

Goodbye normal sleep pattern (again).

Played 1 on PC well into late 90's. Got sidetracked and got hooked onto Master of Orion 1 & 2, and then came Steel Panthers 2 and its freeware mods/remakes (Win)SPWW2, (Win)SPMBT and SPWAW. Got a new PC in 2005, walked past a bargain bin and picked up 2. Didn't impress me much. Skipped 3 altogether, until one fateful day a friend of mine started talking how cool it would be to play 4 online. Bought it, along with the add-ons (though Beyond the Sword would have been enough as it contains all the gameplay changes from Warlords). The online play never came to pass except for one match, but the offline part... if possible, I was hooked even worse than on 1. Fortunately I had the sense not to install the Fall from Heaven mod, remembering my Age of Wonders binge from the turn of the millennium. But anyway, still going through the withdrawal symptoms which only FH2 can keep at bay, and now they are pushing part 5? The horror, the horror.

I wonder if they have finally fixed the bug in the Spy mission "Spread culture", namely that it never worked the way it was supposed to (even though it was supposedly fixed in the last update)?

When I was 5 I met civ2 I never builded more than 2 cities because going trough all the technology was fun enough for me. With civ 3 I already had more brains to see that I had to build more than 2 cities but with civ4 I finnally got the hang of it hopefully civ 5 will be even better  ;D
