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 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.
