The large land areas, hundred player battles and the fun vehicles. Please don't screw this up SOE.

SGU was one of the few regular TV shows I regularly watched.

I've not downloaded the patch yet either. Will be checking out the updated Civ V first. However, the Elemental AI is supposedly not horrible anymore. See the patch notes. Wardell implemented a multi-threaded AI.

I've not played with this patch, but the AI is apparently still horrible. It's understandable since they change so many of the game mechanics that the AI had to be reworked, but it sucks because the game is still boring - it's mostly a sandbox with little competition.

All of these AI and balance improvements sound excellent!

Win 100 games? Doubt I could come up with 50 games I'd want. Most people would probably only ever install a few of the 100.

I've just played too much TF2, 562 hours. It lost my interest. Perhaps for many of you its really not the unlockables they added but burnout.

Pfft, last game I bought in a store was more than a year ago. Steam or Impulse prices are close enough for launch day pricing.

Can't remember the last time I've bought a PC game at retail. Its been years! Don't care about not having it in a box.

Bought this game and then never played very far into the start.

Love 4x games but the UI on this one was a pain and the gameplay turned into work.

Having played Global Agenda, I'm not holding out high hopes for this Tribes remake. The poor game design choices made in GA aren't a good sign.

In my games I haven't had bizarre AI behavior. Its just been stupendously bad at tatically using its units. It also doesn't handle oceans.

Otherwise the AI grows its Civs quite well but does tend to spam cities. Part of the problem seems to be that certain of the AI personalities aren't as good as some of the others.

The item set effects seem balanced. Some more useful than others.

Set info here:

Getting free game updates couldn't go on forever. This seems a fine addition to the game to me. You can always get the items the hard way. Your not forced to purchase.

Don't care anymore. Playing Civ 5 badly on Prince level and having the game pick a random Civ for me. Large map.

I'll be pleasantly surprised, if in the future, my pre-order of Elemental ends up enjoyable enough to be worth the money.

Wonder if I'll ever have more interest in Elemental. Instead I could see myself just starting up another game of Civ 5.

At this point I feel kinda stupid I pre-ordered Elemental.

Believe the Civ 5 demo will be available the day of release.

Wouldn't bother waiting for user reviews. The gameplay videos show the awesome polish they've put into it. No more stacks of doom and a hex grid! Whats not to love.
