Could be the CiV i like, something about playing the current leaders that i don't like because there known historical people, maybe a mod could set things right ?

Looking forward to this game but they should have taken a few hints from Let's Players. This guy was like listening to paint dry.

Wish it was coming out for consoles. Oh well.

I hope the three affinities, purity, harmony and supremacy is well balanced, but I got a bad feeling that harmony will be the best long term strategy while supremacy is an all-rounder, while purity could give you a rushed head start, but costly as the game progresses further on.

it looks like re-skinned civilization, not saying that this is the bad thing.

@Tribesmaster Civ games just aren't meant for the gamepad... while it would be nice to have on the console. It's one of the few games I'll say is just the best with a mouse and a keyboard.

@Tribesmaster It likely won't be hard to run. Even a low end PC would likely be able to run it. I used to have a pretty low end PC and I ran Civ 4 at max settings at 1366x768 very well, and I ran the Civ 5 demo pretty well too. People aren't too sensitive about low frame rates in games like this. You could get away with playing a game like this at 20 fps easily, assuming input lag isn't severe. So even if it's not coming out for consoles, you might still have a good chance to play it.

@Karmazyn I would assume it's the same engine. Civ V was great & it's graphical style worked well so I guess that's one less thing to spend time & money on.
