    PolyCast "Focus: Civilization Revolution" Special

    Focus: 'Civilization: Revolution' with Elizabeth '2K Elizabeth' Tobey In late January of this year, Apolyton Civilization Site (ACS) administrators Daniel "DanQ" Quick and Wouter "Locutus" Snijders spoke with 2K Games Community Manager Elizabeth "2K Elizabeth" Tobey about Civilization: Revolution which the company will be publishing come this June. The duo posed questions from the ACS staff and several forum users on-site and elsewhere to learn more about the game, the industry that they are all involved in and about Tobey herself.

    Entitled "Focus: Civilization: Revolution", it is being released as a special edition of PolyCast (PC), an official podcast of ACS. Quick is one of PC's regular co-hosts and Snijders a regular on its sibling show ModCast. Total runtime is 52m27s. PolyCast is also the collective banner for both series. Note that this feature was recorded prior to CivRev's release date becoming public or the revelation that the Wii port had been put on indefinite hold.

    Reception to this work will in part bear whether or not such future profiles on CivRev will be produced in lead-up to, and possibly after, the game's completion and public availability.

    First off, I need to look at the titles of polycasts before trying to discuss them. Since I get everything from iTunes I don't pay attention to the titles, so I was having a lot of trouble figuring out which polycast this was. I was looking in the numbered polycasts. Having said that...

    This was a really good podcast. Being someone who will not buy a DS made me hesitant to finish listening to this one once I realized it was entirely about CivRev. The co-host did a great job of explaining it and I was really impressed. I'm hoping to get a Wii later this year, so if CivRev is made for the Wii, consider it bought!

    Great episode and I'm rather shocked there isn't more discussion here.

    Doesn't exist on the Polycast page, but going by Dan's VERY predictable naming conventions you can get it here:

    My iTunes subscription seems to pick up every podcast, hence the reason I got this one. I first found out about the OTCast when iTunes downloaded it.

    Keep up the good work!

    iTunes is for girls. Real men manually download.

    That's so true.

    First thing my missus did on my computer was install iTunes.

    And after my first kid I had to start manually downloading.

    Yes it does, in fact, and/but has since been archived there. Given that this prompted me to update the link in my opening post accordingly.

    but going by Dan's VERY predictable naming conventions...
    -- I take that as a compliment. Naming conventions should be consistent ... that is something which admittedly hasn't always been the case on-site but has for PolyCast.

    Great episode [..] Keep up the good work!

    -- the thread 2K_Elizabeth herself created on this on the game's official forums has no comments in it to date (and less than 200 views). Not much feedback over on CFC for that matter to date either (and less than 300 views on that thread). This thread has been viewed much more than those two combined, but still as you say...

    As for the other.... downloading, remember this is a family friendly thread.

    A well priced expansion given the amount of additions if I do say so.
    ASI...
