Uh, more importantly, the Civ list and descriptions are up at www.civilization5.com

Some obvious and some not so obvious civ choices there.

Re: Civilization V

At least they went with young Catherine. That old bitty in Civ 3 gave me those dirty looks.

IIRC, she was young in Cvi 4, which I hardly ever played and would if my father hadn't lost one of the discs.

Though nothing beat Civ 1's Joe Stalin with some dark skinned tribal advisers around him.

Or Civ 2's Elvis advisor.

Or...yeah...

Re: Civilization V

I can't wait for this game. I've played every version of it since the first one. I haven't seen anything yet about map making though. Map making sucked in Civ IV, in fact it wasn't even map making, it was just a way to cheat. I hope they bring back that ability to create your own worlds and then play on them.

As to non-infinate resources, that sounds like a pain in the ass to me.

Re: Civilization V

No Spain. I wonder why?

I wonder if people would feel okay if the English, the Germans, the French or the Russians were left out of the game?

I love Civilization, but I'm not buying this until they put Spain in. I'm so sick of this bias.

Re: Civilization V

Actually, let me add to the hypocrisy of the official Civ website having a Spanish language version for a game with no Spanish civ.

Re: Civilization V

Spanish language version of the game could be sold in Mexico where the Aztecs are

I assume Spain will be in the very first expansion of the game. In Civ3 they were as well (there seems to be a trend where they appear every other game first).

Re: Civilization V

Well it looks like they tried to get civs from different levels so it wasn't all just super powers. I imagine there are tons of other asian civs that were bigger than Myanmar and African civs than the Songhai. They probably held back Spain to headline the next expansion so it wasn't just a grab-bag of obscure civilizations.

Re: Civilization V

I actually don't think there was a bigger African civilization than Songhai (unless Mali counts and that was the same geographic region). The only way this wouldn't be true is if you count Mediterranean civs and, in that case, the only bigger one was Egypt (in terms of impact, not size or probably even wealth). Carthage might be third.
