Civilization VI


#3544

Thanks for tbe writeup @Spock!


#3545

Hey I know some folks here were asking about the Civ V community patch/modpack. I just took it for another spin and wrote up my impressions over in the Civ V thread, in case anyone’s curious. Cheers!

(See, I can contribute positive things even in threads for terrible games I hate! ;) )


#3546

It boggles my mind that wasn’t in the base game.


#3547

Part of what will make this “The greatest DLC evar!!1!!!1!!”


#3548

So GMG seems to be the cheapest-yet-still-legit place to pick up the expansion at $31.19.


#3549

I’m concerned this expansion wont actually be “fun”. Because the rest of the game sure hasn’t felt that way I’m not sure this can fix it. But I always wanted this exact kind of thing in Civ V so I hope they can make it fun in a Simcity disaster kindaway (when you want to torch your world).

First Gathering Storm review I’ve seen


#3551

Polygon talked about it and mentioned it is overpriced. No score given.


#3552

he says its fun and he HATED civ6 at launch and stopped producing content on his channel

as far as cost, I would pay $500 for the perfect video game…let me know when they make it


#3553

Climate change just “stops”? How lame. If I want to make a mess of my planet, I should be able to see it it drown. I hope there’s a way to over-ride this limitation or I won’t be getting this.


#3554

Why would you be getting it regardless, didn’t you hate V and VI? The AI still sucks according to the above posted video.

I never got into VI, think I am burnt out on Civ in general. I will buy this when its on sale for less than $20.


#3555

Hell, I’ve been playing the sci fi Civ (for V) “Beyond Earth” and I really have been hooked on it. Might as well free week it and see. Just the combat. Though I note that in Beyond Earth (with the sea dlc) combat is interesting. I may load it up and start the Aztecs and just look around the gearhouse a bit.


#3556

There is always hope it gets a lot better. I try to never totally write something off.


#3557

I THINK they’re talking about sea level rise, but I’m not sure. There’s only so much ice, after all.


#3558

So it is free all week… I recall a few other things I got for free… but ok Civ VI. Loading it up.


#3559

It’s been close to 3 years. If it was ever going to get any better…


#3560

Weird to have a Civ expansion come out and not get it. I’m not sure what my price point will be.


#3561

Heads up gang!

Gathering Storm is now out on Steam but realize, even once installed, until you enable the exp and 2 new scenarios in Additional Content, you’ll just see the Rise and Fall title screen and have no access to the new stuff.


#3562

I’m enjoying it so far. I’m playing as the Maori, which start the game afloat at sea. I wandered for eons looking for land, and when I finally founded a city, I slowly realized that I’d just settled uncomfortably close to Sweden and Mali. Also, in my first couple turns, I had floods and tornadoes – I’ve got disasters turned up to the maximum, lol.

Fun, but I’m already quite a bit behind, this playing on Prince – the shame of it! I usually play on King or Emperor, but it’s been a while, so I thought I’d chill.


#3563

I’m really glad you’re a voice of positivity in this thread. I have the new DLC ready to go, I just need to sit down and play a game. Not sure if tonight is the night for a game but I’m looking forward to trying out the new features.
