Looks good! It's very similar to Railroads and Pirates! in terms of style. Obviously improved and hopefully more entertaining.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

No way dude, you're trolling me.

I'm not sure that's fair. It's just stylization. Time will tell how good the game is.

Truthfully I have no problem with the way a great many mobile games look. A lot of them offer sleek, toy-like styles with minimalist UI choices that I wish would be in bigger, better games.

What those mobile games usually lack is gameplay, which is why I dislike them.

That's only because phones don't have enough space or buttons to have a more functional UI. I hate it.


I've got like a hundred keys on this thing, I don't need a big colourful child-safe button to click on.

I hope civ VI still has Catherine the Great (cleavage) as the leader for Russia.

If the map isn't drawn in cave-paintings at the beginning of the game and changes as you go through eras then Civ 6 gets an automatic 0 points. It would just be insulting if it was just a medieval or age of sail map the whole time.

Hopefully the early computer area will have ****ty wireframe maps

Yeah I never had much of an issue managing global happiness. It was always one of those mechanics that was just kinda there and wasn't great but wasn't awful. But a better system with more nuance wouldn't be unwelcome.

In the new Civ you have to personally ensure your pops' happiness by going into first person mode and walking around your city. Your citizens will approach you and air their grievances in the language of whichever civ you chose. We actually hired experts in ancient Indic and Semitic languages in order to get this right. We tracked down the last Navajo Code Talker from WW2 and got him to teach our voice actors his language so your native american civ pops can tell you they're upset that you're carpet bombing Montezuma. If you go to the market and buy seeds you can plant a peach tree in the unhappy person's yard to make them cheerful again. The peaches will grow in real time and with SteamVR support you will actually be able to taste the delicious ripe peaches.

Hard to tell what is hype and hyperbole
