Immediately fire the kid doing the video. Admits not being a civ fan, I mean can't PC Gamer find someone who plays Civ hundreds of hours? I do and I'm not exactly hardcore. But worse than that (and probably related) he spends most of the time talking about the artwork and 'complaints' (1st lesson: ignore commenters, dude), and casually brushes off the main change of the new iteration that he should've spent his entire play session exploring so he could report on it.

Waaankah.

Well, the footage was gameplay. Unfortunately it wasn't narrated gameplay and whomever was playing didn't take the time to display any features.

Lots of comment complaints over colors/ look. Ah, PC gaming public, never change in your quest for gritty, shitty, boring palettes. Taupe, black, and brown, the only palette for real games.

I was going to say, since when have graphics ever been a civ thing? Like, of all the games to complain about.

The only thing I want from Civ graphics is to be simple enough to not make my GPU gag when it tries to render things late game.

That one is a lot better.  It's the same 2 minutes of footage, but at least the dude sounds super excited about it.  He discusses as much as he can remember from his little invited playsession. Some fun info in there.

Also, fuck hearing about Civ, total fucking trigger for me. Booting up Civ5 with the Community patch/mod is a completely different game and better/improved in every direction.

There's a TON of information in that 2nd video and he's genuinely positive. Nice find.

A few that really stood-out to me:
* Builders w/ limited use vs. Workers is appealing. No more will I build 12 workers in my first 3 cities who do all the lifting for my global empire. That'll change the build strategy quite a bit.
* Along with the above, no more roads via worker. They're developed by trade routes which makes the trade even more valuable. It also means no more building a road to your enemy to move your army faster.
* The terrain bonuses seem pretty damn significant. The one tile that had +4 science due to its adjacency to mountains is a big boost with the right building. Plus you'll have a reason to build near mountains now instead of avoiding the blights on your city's expansion.
* Bombardment from military structures as well as the city means I'm less likely to build only one post-barracks building and use it to churn my armies.
* Barbarians are going to be a GIANT pain in the ass now.
* Global happiness gone. We're back to local happiness and managing it with amenities. While I didn't hate GH the per-city value always made much more sense.

I hated global happiness so I'm glad it's back to local. It made zero sense to have it global.

The Worker changes and road changes confuse me.

I have the Deluxe Edition sitting in my cart with the discount applied, but I am trying to find out what is in the DE before I pull the trigger. If there is anything gameplay related, I want it. If it is a bunch of art books and soundtrack nonsense, I couldn't care less and will buy the SE instead. Anyone know more than is posted on GMG?

I was thinking about it, but I'll just snag the DLC during steam sales. A season pass is more inviting, because expansions > dlc, especially for Civ. But yeah, it's basically Civ + 4 DLCs that sound like the usual 'new civ' DLC.

I enjoy them even before the expansions but I'm weird like that.  Need to preload tonight so I can play on the plane back from Vegas Friday.

Thanks for this heads up, saved me a few bucks.

Edit: I also end up having plenty of fun pre-expansions. They improve with the xpac, but they aren't a trainwreck before them, generally.

At least they stuck with the same bullshit they've said since forever with "And we’ve rewritten the A.I. from the ground up, learning all the lessons that we had from Civilization V, so we know how best to solve some of these problems in military combat and so forth."

Haha okay buddy. Maybe this time you'll get it right. Sixth time is the charm!

Civ V is the only one I thought was pretty bad out the door.  But turned around in a huge way after the first expansion.

I've played all the others without any of the expansions I think.

I didn't enjoy Civ IV at launch and it ended up being my favorite (with mods, cough).

Civ V I initially rejected but learned to really like it, though my aforementioned love of the Civ IV mod meant my playtime there was exponentially higher.

So far a nice experience, a bunch of stuff to get up to speed on but it still plays well. I didn't get too far (responsibility!), but I was a bit annoyed when my neighbor (I'm Rome) is constantly referring to himself as the Emperor of Rome (Germany is the HRE this time around). Going to have to irrationally kill Germany early, I guess.
