Here is the Announcement Trailer, no gameplay but still epic.

Keith David continues his quest to get his voice into every major game franchise, I see. Not that that's a bad thing.

Re: Civilization V

It'll probably be well-made since almost all Firaxis games are. The question is if the changes they make it will make the game better than Civ4. They are removing many cool things, so I hope they've replaced them with equally cool things. Better diplomacy would be a great one for me. Generally, they've been pretty good at simplifying or removing a feature in order to add other cool features. I'm hoping that's the case with religion because it was a very welcome addition (one I was actually initially skeptical of, but they pulled off so very well).

Re: Civilization V

^The only problem I had with the religion aspect of Civ IV was when your missionary would fail...in one of your own cities. I get that that sort of thing would certainly happen in real life (kinda,) but it's just one of those things that makes me want to pull my hair out for some reason. It was especially annoying in the late-game when you have free religion and want every city to have as many religions as possible for more happiness, more temples, more culture, etc. "Missionary Failed." NOOOOOOOOOO!

Re: Civilization V

I did not enjoy Civ4 nearly as much as Civ3. I hope that Civ5 has a more Civ3 feel to it.

Re: Civilization V

For the first time in my life the announcement of a new Civ game didn't do anything for me

I loved the game, but the last 2 years I just can't bring myself to play it any more. Just can't balance the time required to get good with things like spending time with my wife...which she likes me to do

Man! That trailer is fantastic! If the game play lives up to it, it should be a great time-destroyer.

I have a problem with the historical howlers in that trailer, for all it was pretty.

Decently detailed preview from IGN. Gives a good idea where they're heading this time around.

Seriously. What are they going to replace it with? It's not just going to be combat is it? Because I loved played completely political civs that turtled up and took over via influence. One of my favorite civ memories was taking over a large map with gahndi, never attacking the whole time other than against the barbarians at the beginning.

Re: Civilization V

Culture flips were stupid. No matter how you look at it, a human would react differently than a computer. Computers would passively agree to accept it, which isn't entirely realistic. Humans would immediately start building up for a war if they lost a city to a culture flip.

Re: Civilization V

Yeah, but there were other sides to the dynamic. One time, I was attacking one civ who had previously attacked my vassal state, and systematically taking over their cities.

But some of the enemy cities turned out to have been captured from the vassal, and still were 90% their ethnicity. So after I captured those cities, I got a message saying how the people of those cities longed for a return to the motherland or something. Since I was on track for a cultural victory anyway, I allowed them to return to the vassal state, scoring major diplomatic points in the process.
