Steampunk Civ


Today I would like to talk about a mod thats been out for Civ for a while now but I never got into it. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a go and I loved it. The game ideas and mechanics are changed quite a lot but they make sense and are still amazing. I love all the customized units such as land icon lands are the air balloons. It makes the game feel so much more interesting.

Winning the game is a bit different than in a usual civ game, instead of winning a science victory by going to Alpha Centauri or winning a Domination Victory by conquering all the Capital cities in the world, here in the steampunk mod you win victories by owning the most units or generating the most gold in a period of time, its pretty nice in my opinion.

I recommend you to give it a try and I think you’ll like it.

New Year, New Civ?


So hi all and a belated happy new year!

So I was wondering about something, it occurred to me that every major release of civ happened about every 4-5 years so we might hopefully be expecting some nice news from the guys at Firaxes about a complete new Civ game like something that might be called Civilization 6? Maybe, we won’t know for sure but we will most likely again here something from the guys at Firaxes for sure but if it will be about a new expansion pack or a new game we won’t know yet.

Announcement Brave New World


As many of you probably know that the Brave New World expansion pack just very recently was released to be exact on the 9th of July. If you do not know much about its availability yet here is a little overview.
It has been released on Mac and PC on steam and is available as a DLC. You do have to buy civilization 5 to run it just like with God’s and King’s. It is also available on the Apple Mac App Store as a DLC likewise as with steam you need to buy Civilization 5 first and then the DLC.
Of course with both steam and the Mac App Store if you already have civilization 5 you only need to buy the DLC brave new world.

I will be coming out with a review of the game shortly.

Post in the comments what your own opinion on the new DLC is.

Brave New World and More


First of all I would like to apologise for absence on the blog. This was due to a number reason and the main one was school work. 

So now let’s cover the recent civ news. 

Firaxes just recently announced the last four civilisations for the brave new world expansion. The civilisations are the following:

Indonesia

Morocco 

The Shoshone

Venice

Over the months we have seen some really cool civilisations and these ones like the others have that element. One thing which I have recognised with these civilisations is the fact that they are from a more modern era. I have not seen this theme before in the civilisation franchise. 

What are your opinions on the new civilisations of the Brave New World expansion pack?

Brave new world: Expansion pack


In Pax East Firaxes announced the expansion pack which will probably come out in the summer and this new epansion pack is called Brave new world. Firaxes announced in Pax three new civilizations. They are Assyria, Brazil and Poland
Assyria is a civilization that is industrial and scientific so going for a scientific victory is a good idea.
Brazil is a culture based civilization many of it interesting items are based on tourism
Poland is a military civilization it focuses heavily on mounted horseback, it has a unique unit called the winged Hussar. Poland also gets a free social policy every new era.

Leaders:
Assyria: Ashurbanipal
Brazil: Pedro II
Poland: Casimir III

Also stay tuned as there are 6 other civilizations to be announced.
