News Comments > Play Civilization V Free This Week

It's definitely different than the last iteration in the series. For what it's worth, I also skipped the vanilla game after trying the demo back in 2010.

The expansions really help since they (re)introduce religion and espionage. Plus, the expansions add tourism, trade routes, ideologies (really comprehensive social policies), and a lot more civilizations. Steam says I've put in over 170 hours since I got the game last year, so I feel I got my money's worth. But without the expansions, I would have skipped Civ V.

I'm not really sure how to address the fluidity part. Was it the 1-unit-per-tile and hexagon grid that you didn't like, or was it some other game mechanic(s)?

Hmm, I might give it a try when/if all the expansion packs and DLC go for sale on the cheap.

MY problem was the one unit per tile thing made moving armies so freaking tedious. Plus the game just felt so much slower.

I've played the demo a couple times but it never really grabbed my interest. The gameplay just felt less fluid than IV's. Would playing it more help?

Nothing screams "We've been planning to milk this cow dry since day one!" Quite like a season pass for DLC.

I think this game will be well worth the price during a 50%-75% off sale.

Looks like a few of those weapon models, like the AK, P416, and flamethrower, even came from FC3 (not a bad thing).

They also gave us a mortar! I didn't play FC2 for very long before Left 4 Dead fever set in, so hopefully the FC4 mortar is as fun as the FC2 one was reported to be.

I was going to say the same thing about most of FC4. As for FC2 You really should go back and play its quite the overlooked jem.

“it may take a few years”- Hahahaha That is a good one!

Well it's going to take a lot of time and brilliant minds to come up with a way to make customers think they are being treated fairly and with respect, while still treating them like sacks of skin, fat and hair they're strip-mining for money.

Maybe they'll just give up trying if they merge with TWC. It would appear TWC no longer even pretends to be nice.

"First iPhone 6 Sold In Australia Dropped On Live TV."

LOL!

Saw that and the owner should be pissed, opened the box properly and the device just popped out.

I know, how fucking ridiculous is the packaging for it? See how thick/deep the box is and the bloody phone is just sat right on top, flush with the edge so it just slides out? LOL

Apple sure aren't trying to hide how much they despise their customers.

Only way they could make it more obvious would be if they had some guy kick you in the balls or ovaries when you left the store.

Seriously though the poor kid that sucks!

Who else gets a sinking felling about Star Citizen? I'm sure its going to be good. However, I doubt its going to be as good as all the people who are throwing absurd amounts of money at it hope it will be.

I'm really not sure how much of a market there is for a $800 512GB card. Most really high end professional cinema cameras use proprietary media.

60. Re: PC GTA5 in January Sep 12, 2014, 18:34 walrus1
 
I'm really really hoping this is for QA, polishing and optimization. Part of me fears they're just throwing the PC on the back burner to increase console sales. In which case another crappy port, a la IV, is possible.

This delay makes me further question if I should preorder or not. Actually, I'll probably just wait for the reviews to hit.

GOG has attempted to jump the shark here. I wouldn't be surprised if the shark ate them.

Anyone think GOG is making a piss poor decisions regarding their future? I mean movies sales and abandoning some classic games? If they give up game sales, which is where they appear to be headed, they won't last long.

Maybe they should start repairing their reputation by paying their people on time and not painting them as ingrateful. Of course they might be making the fatal mistake of assuming their reputation could still be salvaged.

Anyone have any experince with Always Sometimes Monsters? I've hear really mixed things. Such as it's great and unique! It's horrible and short or long and bland.
