I never really got into civilisations. I think a mate of mine may have played it on and off. Is Civ the game where there's borders and you could mine oil and associated shizz?

yer, its an empire sim though I don't think borders were introduced until Civ III or call to power, they are good games but definatly of a limited taste

Civ put 4X on the map, and you're expelled for gamer heresy. :P

That. Civ isn't just another game. It's the 4x game and the only one I can think of that has been around since the early DOS days. Saying "oh is that the game with borders and mining and ****" is a bit like saying "Pink Floyd.. sounds familiar.. it's a band, right?"

Right, I'll admit to a gaming fail.

Civ V? Meets all those criteria, if you make your own good plot!

 
Civ's one of the few 4X games i can tolerate, since at least by four, a lot of the options can be automated. Yes, I obsessively micromanage things when i only have like three towns, but once I have 40... I want to stick to mainly macro-concerns. This is a model I can't find many 4X games that follow :(

Essentially I like games that let you first start out by obsessively tweaking your homeworld/city, but let you delegate more and more as things go on so you can take play in the bigger game. It seems like a lot of games either have the OMG depth but no way to manage it, or avoid the problem by having very simple management controls.

But yes. I will be watching this thread to see how you guys like Civ V. I am interested. I am also poor :P

17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

got SotS not got the expansion but that's a watered down 4x and the actual combat strategy is real time

If you can live without the modern graphics, try M.A.X. - That's pretty much the best combat-oriented TBS I can think of without civilization management. Just don't touch the sequel, which was a bug-ridden piece of crap.

Also, yes, getting Civ V :)

Started playing it when I woke up today and I'm definitely liking the game so far.
