Ryan's Civ V Impressions?

#1 Edited by BleedTheFreak (7 posts) -


On the Bombcast Ryan indicated he couldn't talk about Civ V until today (though I see IGN put up some coverage yesterday) and I was wondering in what form that might take, or if there was any sort of idea when something like that would go up?  I'm eager to hear this thoughts on it.  Charles at IGN seemed to regard his time with it very highly.  
 
I'd also be interested in his thoughts on Giant Death Robots....

Thanks! 
Scott

It's still 7 AM in Bombcast land, so I imagine that they're just rolling out of bed. I'd be if you checked back around 10-2 pacific time, you'll get what you're looking for.

He'll probably post a preview-style article. Though, just because he can talk about it today doesn't necessarily means he intends to.

I'm surprised he is the one playing it, he doesn't seem like a strategy guy.  Mike and Dave I bet will do a QL?

I dunno, he seemed to really like Civ Rev, so I can see him trying out Civ 5 at least.

Are you kidding me?  Like, 20 minutes of gameplay?  That would be unbelievably awesome.

That's just effing cruel--the link to the vid goes to the Starcraft II review.

I think the video was busted.

Had me scared for a while there - saw the "Civil" video go up, just to be taken down a minute later ... flashbacks of ER-50 anyone?

Sweet.  Seriously jonesing for some GB "Civ-Vee" goodness.  Or is that Siffy...or SyFy...  Whatever--bring on the hexes!

I cannot wait for this video...but I'm pretty sure we already know it's going to be amazing...amazing enough to justify my new gaming pc paid for by my good ol' college loans.

He sounded hell of excited at the end of that video there. Certainly a good sign!

I wonder how long it'll be before he joins Civilization Anonymous.
