    I stopped playing Civ 4 when a guy with a stone spear killed my tank offensive, this was shortly after some galleons sunk my submarine. o_O

    Bump! Cinematic trailer added to original post!

    Looks good too - no in-game footage at this stage, but damn - I remember being blown away watching the vids in Civ2 - we've come so far! :p

    Civ V will also be available on Steam, with full Steamworks integration. It's actually available for pre-order right now. There is also a deluxe version that has extra goodies, including an extra race/leader, the Babylonians and their leader Nebuchadnezzar.

    Same...
    I just got the bug to play Civ again yesterday and chose Civ III Conquest rather than Civ IV.
    I'll give Civ V a good looking into tho...

    Cheers...

    Tis strange... I'm kinda getting scared with this. I LOVED CivII and hated CivIII - then LOVED Civ4...

    I think I disliked Civ3 because it was different. It had all sorts of new concepts that I probably didn't put enough time into understanding, so decided to dislike it. So when Civ4 came around, I decided to take the time to know it well.

    I'll have to do the same for Civ5 :p

    Had a real itching to play it last night.... Still three weeks to go!!

    Never played Civ games but I might check out the demo for this one at least once available.
    I would think I would like it given I like total war games.

    CIV rocks and I am glad they revamped the combat to be more tactical. :)

    That's what annoyed me too. When a unit clearly out-techs another, you'd think that any damage would be largely ineffective or that the stats would at least reflect that to a much larger degree than it does.

    Lol this is me to the 'T'. Except I have still struggled to move on from Civ2 which remains one of my all-time favourite games. I'm looking forward to number 4 though, it really does look like a bit of a work of art. I'm not going to jump on it though. Got too many games taking up my time at the moment!
