    One of the other reporters in the room asked about this during the demo. The Demo guy said that while the final minimum specs have not been finalized, they are very aware that lots of people will want to play this game on their netbooks.

    For a long long time Civ II was my favorite. Maybe this will soon change?

    I dig what I am seeing and hearing.

    it still won't bring my favourite feature from Civ 2, which is the city view because i just like looking at my city but not from the world view. But the changes of Civ 5 really make me wonder what they'd do for an expansion pack or Civ 6

    There doesn't seem to be a city view as it appeared in Civ 2, however, with the single tile-based city expansions, you actually see the buildings in your city appear on the world map around it.

    Really looking forward to this one, even if they decided not to change it much from 4.

    You haven't already pre-ordered?

    I, too, have never played a Civ title, but I think it's a good time to start.

    You know, I'm a weird one. I never pre-order. The only game I ever pre-ordered was Half-Life 2 (which is also the only game I've ever bought expansion packs for). No matter how much I want the game, I don't pre-order. I don't pre-load, pre-purchase, pre-whatever.

    I walk to the store and buy it the day it comes out.

    Don't ask why, because I don't know.

    I'm the same way. I guess I just can't endorse the speculative aspects of that practice.

    If it's on Steam, I'm pre-loading the crap out of it.

    The only reason i pre-order a game is to save some bucks. BestBuy often do a 5$ or 10$ rebate on a pre-ordered game.

    If its the same price, then i don't care.

    Sometimes you get exclusive pre-order bonuses. I've been compelled to pre-order for stuff like that.
  • GooDGooD Quebec (CAN) Member

    Yeah i did one time too with Dragon Age :P

    But most of the time those bonuses are nothing to get excited about. Beginning items with a different look.

    What i do like tho is to be able to get the "soundtrack" of a game in mp3 as a bonus.

    Also, Most of the nice bonuses are retailer exclusive those days. Steam will give you Kit A , Gamestop Kit B, Direct2Drive Kit C, etc... Some games have more than 6 Kit of retailer bonuses, that's insane lol But well it gives the consumer the ultimate choice in wich bonuses he wants so that's not bad. You just need to be careful and to be well informed before buying :)

    I absolutely love Civ 4, civ 5 is at the top of my must get list
  • edited Jun 2010
    i constantly pre-order my games, most of the time to ensure i get collector editions(i just like getting them), pre-order bonuses, or for games that can become quite rare. but i haven`t pre-ordered civ 5 yet due to absence of funds. but i`m definitely getting the deluxe edition and world view of cities always seem lacking to me.
  • edited Jun 2010
    This is one game that I'm very sure is going to be great! Civ 4 seemed like a step sideways, but this looks like it's going forward.

    I bought this yesterday on the amazon $20 steam-activateable (totally a word) sale and played from 930P to 430A w/o looking at the clock from like 1230 on. WTF.

    I did the same thing when I first got it. "Just one more turn" (for about three hours).

    That was exactly the thought I had ... I mentally said "Just one more turn, Mom!"

    I remember I had a big paper due, and I flipped out when I saw how much time I had left.
