  • Now there's yet ANOTHER pre-order option...

    Direct2Drive is offering this for preorder:

    Civ5
    Civ3
    The first "Double Civilization and Scenario" DLC (due for release sometime in the Fall)

    All for $49.95.




    Can we PLEASE get some goddamned transparency from 2K? This is getting beyong ridiculous.

    ...This is ridiculous. It doesn't seem like a very good package compared to the steam preorder so I'm not worried about missing out or anything but this has me more hesitant to buy the game (to say nothing of preordering it) than I already was.

      I bet they can just smell the benjamins they're trying to rake in

      Sadly, I think it's likely to work.

        Are they discounting the price because they are offering Civ 3 with it?

          I had the same thought. Who the **** would want Civ3, when one could play the (hopefully) far-superior Civ5, or the definitively far superior Civ4?

            Like last week or something, you could get Civ3 off steam for like $2.49 I think. Clearly, Civ3 is considered a pittance now. Direct2Drive is probably throwing it in for ****s and giggles and the off chance that it could give a little nudge to interest someone in buying Civ5 from them.

            Also, what is Double Civilization and Scenario?

                Yeah, I dont think this is a 2K thing. As for civ3, I'm still waiting for my check from Sid for all the work I did debugging the PBEM game.
                We need seperate human-only games for MP/PBEM that dont include the over-simplifications required to have a good AI

                  I think it's like how moderately-hot chicks will go out to bars with ugly friends; the bad company makes them look stunning by comparison. Same thing here.

                  No, wait, it's just a cynical, amoral attempt to reel in suckers with a bad game. Never mind.

                    Over at CivFanatics, one of the 2K reps says he's making a chart of pre-order options and features that they will post on the Civ V website.

                    I remember when I could go to the store and purchase games in a box that were just as complete as any other version of the game...
