Hard to tell what is hype and hyperbole since that article came across a bit like a sponsored ad.  But the words were good.

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



Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I don't want to watch three minutes of someone who can't find the "End Turn" button.
Not a winner anymore.

This is footage provided by firaxis. I imagine they have a good idea.

So Quill18 did a kind of hour long postmortem.

Hm. Sounds pretty interesting. Glad they're switching it up, not sure how I feel about the direction but we'll see.

Builders sound meh, the no roads sounds like it could be good if executed right. Graphics still look mobile like to me. Districs seem legit.

So far it looks sale buy worthy!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Why is the only government type "matriarchy" in the shots though? :||

The nice thing about Firaxis is that they always release demos for their civ games
