    where did you look?

    I just saw it (Civ 2 Gold) in compusa last weekend.
    Any of the software places on the internet should have it as well.

    have any of you gone to www.firaxis.com to look at what Civ III will look like? If you haven't it's worth a look.

    I've been avoiding it for the moment. I'll wait until we're a little closer to a release.

    I find that if I get too interested in a game early on, it either doesn't get ported (Wheel of Time), gets cancelled (B5 space combat sim), or it takes too long to get ported (Starcraft, Aliens vs Preditor, Vampire: Redemption) and I get bitter about it and protest by not buying the product.

    I've read about it and looked at some screenies of it, in a word it looks awesome.

    BTW, Oni, supposedly it will have multiplayer support from the first, so if you are anxious to get your ass kicked, I am throwing down the Civ III gauntlet. (Even if we will be waiting until 2002:))

    P.S. I'd challenge you to a Civ II duel, but I don't have the gold version. :(

    Done!


    I'm up for getting my empire handed to me on the underside of someone else's boot. :)

    The Multiplayer part of Civ2 Gold sucked anyway. Either you'd get in a game with someone who took a minute for each of his initial moves (which is far too long) or you wouldn't have any time for micromanagement because the timespan for each turn was too short. Never could find a middle ground.

    I wanted to play the B5 sim, too. I'm mad all over again, now. I bought the B5 pack with the audio CD and the Interactive CD-ROM thing, and it also had a preview movie for that game. I'll watch the movie tonight and rip the ears off a stuffed bunny (look at my avatar) just to vent my anger.
