Civilization Beyond Earth Released


Civilization Beyond Earth was just released yesterday on Steam and on CD Rom for Mac, PC and Linux. I expect it to be released on the App store most likely later this year and hopefully come with Game Centre Multiplayer support.

The game costs now 49.99 Dollars but if you want to save a bit of money I suggest you wait till the winter when the game will be more stable and Steam most likely put a discount on it.

But if you can wait and really want the best and the newest games out there or you are a avid civ fanatic and need to buy it now, the reviews have been very good and price is fairly reasonable already.

Civilization Revolution 2


Yes it is here finally, well nearly.

Firaxes and 2k are going to release the new version of civ rev on July 2nd, for iOS and android.

The game will be the first civ rev game to come after the release of Civ 5 so hopefully this means that it might share some characteristics with civ 5, a bit like Civ 5 for mobile (yes it actually existed).

The game from what screenshots have released will have updated graphics new game mechanics and so on.

One thing I was very surprised about though was the fact that it was not coming to PS4 and XBOX one, at least for now

Release info about Beyond Earth


So it seems first of all that beyond earth (the new civ game) will be official released somewhere in september, a clear date has not been given yet but judging by the last release dat of 10 September or Civ 5 it will probably be released again early in September.

Then most likely it will be released a bit later for Mac most likely a month later. For OSX the likelihood that it will include snow leopard in the system requirements will in my opinion be quite low.

For Windows it is hard to say but I think that Vista will also be dropped for the new Civ Beyond Earth game.

 

So in the end my prediction with using facts is:

Windows Release: September 10th System Requirements Windows 7 and higher

OSX Release: October 22nd System Requirements OSX 10.7 and higher

Civilization: Beyond Earth


I had expected this for a while but not like this.

I had expected that Firaxes would bring out a new Civ game this year, but not one as bold as the one which was released only a couple of days ago, the new civ game is called Civilization: Beyond Earth, a bold step from the old games in one major way.

Instead of starting on earth at the beginning of humans agricultural beginnings and ending to the near future. Civilization Beyond Earth goes to a time period when humans leave earth to a new planet.

Here is the trailer:

 

I will be brining out more posts later with further details.

 

Platforms supported:

Mac, PC, Linux

 

 

Are you exited?

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.

Civilization Revolution Update


Yes another one has come out. It seams that finally firaxes is doing something with civ rev after long time. They seem to be updating it for nearly every two weeks. Well let me just tell you what the new update contains.

There was an issue if you logged out the hole fog of war would reappear now luckily not anymore.

There are a blooming ten new scenarios.

There is a new update

Even more animated units (yah)

And even more game achievements to brag about.

This does seem like a big update

Interesting civ5 update


A new update came to civilization 5 just a few days ago and I found a very nice update that can help you manage your civ easily especially if you are starting your game in the renaissance era because most of the time you start with more units than your empire can manage and if you don’t recognize that you might come in crises. So the way that civ fixes this is through the menu bar.

the warning

If you look closely you can see there is a red icon with a explanation mark on there. This icon informs you about if you’r civilization has over capacity of units. So you can quickly change you’r capacity of units and make sure you don’t go into crises. Hope this help’s you.
