News Comments > Civilization V Patch Notes
1. Re: Civilization V Patch Notes Nov 11, 2010, 11:00 tony
 
It's good to hear that Firaxis is still working hard to improve the game, but unfortunately the underlying game mechanics are either too simplified or tied together for my tastes. The trade off system of civics (in civ4) vs. the perk system of policies, base research tied directly to population count, universal happiness instead of happiness per city, and even the removal of stacks creates frustrating (unfun) circumstances.

Civ V is fun (I've played 75 hours according to steam), it could be more fun with patches/expansions, but I currently don't think it will ever be as deep or fun as civ4:BTS.

The developers talk about their sales and piracy one month after release: http://frictionalgames.blogspot.com/2010/10/one-month-after-amnesias-release.html

I'm both happy and sad for them.

I know the console processors are good, so processor requirements make sense, but why do we keep seeing GPU recommended specs rise while the games look no better and are still based off the ancient GPU in the PS3 and Xbox?

Probably from lazy coding/optimization.

Developers need to just skip dx10. If they are going to offer multiple DX formats, just do DX9 and DX11.

The deluxe version is available on D2D as well. This deal is not new, I preordered from there about a month ago.

Game looks great, would love to try it on my laptop prior to buying, don't see myself playing it much if I have to use my desktop to get it to look good.

I don't see any sales on this... $49.99 for purchasing it a week before it comes out? Feels kind of insulting to not offer any incentives to buy this game.... Was hoping amazon would have $10 off or something, was ready to spend money and now I'm feeling like they're being greedy not offering better incentives.

I'll wait for the price to come down or a demo. Or Onlive? Put it up on Onlive! I'll pay for 3 day access to play it and see how I like it there!

$10 off at Direct2Drive right now, get the first premium DLC free and get Civ 3 free.

Is that not a good enough sale for you?

Also glad to see Amnesia selling well. I've been trying to drum up peoples' interest in this game since they official named it Amnesia last year.

10. Re: Non Sequitur Sep 7, 2010, 17:05 tony
 
So anyone with the DLC - is it completely separate? When you fire up the game is Jimmy's Vendetta is a different option from the main menu or are the missions accessed from within the normal single player campaign?

Hopefully it'll just be stupid worthless stuff like time trials, leaderboards, etc. I don't want this game built around co-op.

IGN has their review up ahead of the game's release. They gave it an 8.5/10 and an editor's choice award!

Regenerating health is the future baby. Embrace it.

If the next half life game moves to regenerating health, it may be the last fps shooter I ever play.

Hopefully Red Dead and LA Noire are both ported to PC eventually... those are games I might buy a console for at some point if they never are.

I would also love LA Noire on PC.

This game looks like it's dripping with atmosphere.

I take it I should give Penumbra a try before I delve into this one? Or does it really matter...

They're good games on their own, probably best to experience before Amnesia simply because Amnesia will have some improvements on gameplay that would otherwise seem a little frustrating if you were to experience Penumbra after Amnesia.

If you do get the Penumbra games, and I highly recommend them, don't try to fight anything aside from maybe a spider or two. Combat was made akward and difficult on purpose. The point is to run, hide, and use stealth. Also, the third Penumbra game is not a continuity of the first two - it's just a giant where's waldo type game with some minor Portal-esque gameplay elements.

Besides Civ 5, this is the game I have been most forward looking to in the second half of this year.
