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?

New Civ 5 Update on Mac App Store not loved


Civilization 5 has lately been getting quite some heat lately on the Mac App Store. Civilization 5 (OSX Version) seams to have been getting performance issues most particularly crashing. And the response of the community has not been positive about it. The game went from a nearly perfect 5 star rating to a 3 star rating currently. And this for a app featured on the Mac App Store is not to acceptable.

Although I myself have not been getting these issues I have recognized that on some more low powered machines the issue occurs far more often. Which to me sounds as if it is a optimization issue. Which Civilization 5 was never great at compared to Civilization 4 or the upcoming Rome 2 Total war.

All in all Firaxes and Aspyer have some hard issues to fix in the long run.

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.

Civilization 5 gold edition


Yesterday the gold edition of civilization 5 was released on steam which included all the expansion packs such as the Inca Spain expansion pack or the God’s and Kings expansion pack. The price for this Gold edition is 39,99€. Which compared to civilization’s 5 price is not much more.

As said before the gold edition is currently only available in the steam store.

Something’s wrong


Most of the time around this time Firaxes would just plummet news about patches or expansion packs or new game but at the moment nothing. And you can see this also on major blog’s like civfanatics or aptylon, and also with me too.
So what is wrong, are they concentrating all the work on Civ 6 or is the year 2013 the year for other projects instead the civilization franchise.

So what do you think comment below.

Announcement for Pixely-Fims

I am already releasing some details about it to. In the series I will be playing as the Austrians. It will be map size small which would mean that there will be around 4-5 civ’s playing.
