Hmm, Civ might work from the couch, never had the patience or interest in the previous ones on PC even though I've seen the effect they had on some people :) I wonder whether there's going to be compromises with the user interface... doesn't seem too complicated at least.

does anybody know if this is going to be a 'true' civ sequel or is it simplified at all?

xbulletholes: a game of Civ revolution is supposed to take 2-3 hours to complete and it's going to be made in such a way that it's simpler to play but still have all the basic elements of the previous games. At least that's what i heard :)

I think this might be just what Civ needs, i find it daunting with all the myrriad of options and stuff in civ4. It's still fun to play i guess but the learning curve is just way longer than what i would have preferred.

I'm going to deselect Gandhi anytime I play. How can you go to war against Gandhi? The guy was so peaceful that I feel bad just thinking about going to war against him.

About the game

    MrWhite Love the way people always reiterate that "It's just cosmetic" as if cosmetic stuff isn't part of a game. In fact, it's like a shiny lure to a fish. (1 minute ago)

    Tiz @KORNdog: I mean, I'm only going to grind a game if I enjoy the gameplay. I'd rather grind for hours then submit anything beyond the RRP even if it gets me the exact item I wanted. (12 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it's either grind for litterally tens of hours....or...pay for currency which buys loot boxes that even then might not even give you the thing you want. it's BS, no justification for it. (16 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog there are ways to lessen the sting of a loot box, but nothing will beat actually buying the things you actually want directly. and that's not an option in these games. (17 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz ...bought some skins from last year (in-game currency and cheaper) and played a different game ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (20 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog imagine a supermarket working that way. you want a turkey sandwich, but sorry, not today, you're getting cheese, fucking deal with it. (20 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Tiz: the problem with loot boxes is that whether you're paying with money or time (the points accrued by grinding for hours and hours) the odds of you walking away with what you want are slim. (21 minutes ago)
