I've been playing the original recently and aside from the occasional lock-up in XP, it's as good as ever. Can't wait for the new version and fully concur with papaschris about SMAC. But what's this I hear about Civ5? I'm still getting to grips with Civ4. Please Firaxis, give me another couple of years before updating it again!!!!
All we need now is an Alpha Centauri remake and say goodbye to family/friends/girlfriend/co-workers etc :p
This is one of the originals in the gaming world as far as I'm concerned. When I started gaming on the PC after my apple days, I started with this game and X-COM. I can't wait for this game to come out and have been waiting for years. I just hope that they did it right.
I'm going to try to make time for this game but it's coming out at the same time as quite a few games and I don't think it has the legs to stand up with the rest.
They are puching VIC 4 a little too far. It's almost like The Sims already. Time to let is slowly die and launch CIV V in a year or so...
