    Civ5G&K Gods and Kings : show of hands who is going to buy it

    June 19th. $30
    http://www.amazon.com/Sid-Meiers-Civ...6&sr=8-1-spell

    I don't see it on Steam yet, I assume it will be the same price.

    I am interested... but I am also wary since I paid full price for Civ V at launch and it took forever for them to patch it up to a playable level. $30 expansion pack seems a little pricey.

    I'm on the fence. Who here is going to pick it up?

    EDIT - What I really meant was who is going to buy it at launch, not a year later when it is $10 on Steam... sorry

    I'm going to. I actually like Civ5, and it sounds like it has some stuff I want.

    I too like Civ V conceptually. I'm hoping they ironed out the lousy programming and took their time to release G&K. I will probably buy it as soon as it is available.

    I'm going to wait. I am still so bitterly disappointed in Civ5 that I really don't think it is fixable. I loved Civ4 but Civ5 is an abomination.

    Well, I assume Ill buy it, finally.

    But defeinitely not at the beginning,
    especially if Steam uses its standard practice of equalling 1 $ = 1 €
    (meaning Id have to buy it for the equivalent of 40 $ ).

    I assume, Ill buy it finally, when Steam has it on sale (which, I assume, will happen at some time before the end of this year)

    Is Amazon the same or different in the conversion ratio? I assume it will be available for digital download from Amazon then you could in theory activate it on Steam...

    Digital Download ... Nope ...
    but the boxed version, which is de facto around 30 €

    I have a feeling that I'll probably end up pre-ordering it, so that I have it on the day of release

    I agree that Civ V is not as great as it could be, but it's still a very enjoyable game I'd say. The things I hate the most about Civ V are also present in all other Civ games
    This space is empty... or is it?

    unlikely. Unless they make the game run at a sensible speed. 3 seconds between turns at game start is simply way to slow. I want to play, not wait...

    Right, it is impossible for me to play a large or huge map. It gets to be minutes between turns and that is way too slow.

    I just read the Q&A interview. I like what I'm hearing, hopefully they are not blowing smoke up my hole. I'm in, pre-ordered on Amazon.

    I try not to buy it, and wait for people here to review the game. But knowing me... I will going to buy it before that.. try it.. and big chance i go right back to civ IV hitting myself against the wall, finding myself stupid that I once again can't stay away from a new civ game not matter what
    Civilization is a game where man dominate a fictive world.. woman does it for real

    Just out of curiosity, why normal and small maps are no go for you? I personally prefer those, because otherwise the game become tedious (has nothing to do with turn length, just to conquer everyone or to interact with 16 civs is more than I need for optimal experience) What difference does it make if it is 16 civs instead of 6 or 8? 8 is large number enough, that even after you conquered a couple, you still have a couple of strong civs, and many less strong ones... So why large and huge maps? What do you get from those?
    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so
    certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

    I always play huge maps because I love to build a massive amount of cities and if I am at war only a relative small number of cities need to concentrate on units.

    This can be adjusted by the number of civs per world. You do not have to modify the world size for that. If you have twice less civs, the average civ size can be twice larger before it contact the other civ.

    I like to play random size because each size has different challenges. However, at huge or large I usually get bored with the 2+ minutes between playing and quit.

    This is what I am trying to understand, though. What set of challenges is present on huge map, that can not be reproduced on large or normal maps?

    A huge map gives a large amount of space to settle before meeting the AI. Then around mid game you usually have 8-10 AIs attack you at the same time. The key is to have a good defensive perimeter before that happens. This is almost the only time I will go for the Great Wall.

    I can not see myself not bying it. Civ series is my all time favorite franchise so I am like "Shut up and take my money" even if I do not expect anything ground braking. It still should improve Civ 5.

    Meanwhile "Warlock: Master of the Arcane" is growing more and more on me. I may even miss Diablo 3 lunch, untill I finish the current game in it (it can be quite long). It is like Civ meets Majesty games (also my favorite franchise), with the intensity of Civ revolution, but with variety and magic of MoM. And it is only $20!!!

    I watched the gameplay video for that. Looks like Civ 5 combat with a D&D theme. Sadly the combat is my least favorite part of Civ 5... is it 1UPT? heh

    It is more interesting in Warlock. I to do not like combat in Civ 5, and generally do not like wars in civ games - they look tedious and not very fun for me, including Civ 5. But Warlock is very different story.

    After balancing the AI cheats and my dominating the land, I had recent finished a very good game of Civ 3. And I was thinking the new add on might develop some of the better aspects of Civ 4 and Civ 5 . . . I am away from the Internet from time to time, so I hope this edition is not depended upon getting online as is Civ 5 since I have had some nice games using Civ 5. Sometimes, it depends all on the maps.
