Civilization V
« on: December 14, 2010, 04:29:23 PM »
Civilization V just gave this as a quote:

"Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down?"
—Tom Hehrer

ಠ_ಠ

Worse yet, the narrator didn't even say that quote. He said something else.

So, Civ V is pro-war? No shit, Sherlock. There's not even a way to win without it unless you're willing to play the game for weeks on end.
Here's an explanation for ya. Lurk moar. Every single point you brought up has been posted, reposted, debated and debunked. There is a search function on this forum, and it is very easy to use.

They got the name wrong, doofus. It's Tom Lehrer.

O. Then I retract my previous statement. How do you know this? Who is Tom Lehrer?(Before you pour scorn on my ignorance, remember that I'm not much of a history buff, neither do I know much about American politics.)

" class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Tom Lehrer with above quote.

Look up his other songs. They're good as well. " class="bbc_link" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">This one is a favorite.

So is the game worth it? I play civ 4 occasionally and I'm not very good at it but I enjoy it. How does civ 5 rank by comparison?

I ended up buying it - haven't gotten around to playing it.  So I guess I want to know if it was worth the Steam sale?
And for CIV 4, the best part is the standalone Colonization.  Also bought Empire total war and I don't even know if my lappy will run it  :(

ETW isn't up to the standards of previous titles, and even with a good comp it lags for relatively average graphics (on land battles, the naval graphics are pretty damn good). Also, I detest steam.

Empire sucks and so does Civ 5. I only played for about 5 minutes, which isn't enough for me to comment on the quality of the game but certainly proves this one doesn't have the addictive quality of previous games.
No but I'm guess your what? 90? Cause you just so darn mature </sarcasm>

I really wanted this game. I had civ 4 + expansions but my laptop doesn't meet min requirements for this version. (Has on board graphics).

Civ 4 was one of my all time favourites, I only play strategy games. I hope the new version is rubbish as I shall not get to play it until I get a new machine ... some time away.

This thread makes me very unhappy. :(

Did you play Colonization - the one based on the CIV 4 engine?
And how - for me steam fills a niche - there is a great lack of PC game stores around my area and it makes life easier.

But I feel bummed that I got Civ 5 and ETW and nobody seems to like it.

Perhaps when Thork gets a decent laptop Berny can squash him in Civ 5

I've got Civ III, not entirely relevant to this discussion.

And Napoleon: Total War too. I love sea battles.

Yeah, I didn't understand how it worked. Even on a few settings below the hardest difficulty, I'd be minding my own business like 5 minutes into the game with three workers building a path or something, and I'd just get nuked and attacked by 500 spacemen with laser rifles. How win?

I can win on the easiest two levels by BEING the spacemen with laser rifles against peasants with bows and arrows (Who STILL manage to blow up an army of tanks)

And then you spend the rest of the game protecting the surviving city because you feel somehow guilty for forcing them into what are essentially reserves.

And the gits hate you for the rest of the game.

I was playing and it was down to myself as Rome and France. France has something like 55 gold. I have 15,000 gold.
