I’m just like, so sick of all of the Civ 5 drama.
Ohmygod Catherine, you can’t just say you’re my friend and then be mean to my city-states. I’m like, so mad, I don’t even want to be your friend anymore, that’s how mad I am.
My thoughts of the Civ 5 expansion because I know you all care so much.
I first played as Byzantium. Their capital is Constantinople. The Ottomans were also in this game, and their capital is Istanbul. No. We respect both geography and They Might Be Giants in this house.
When creating my religion, I thought “My religion will be about peace and love and bolstering culture.” Then I saw you can institute tithing. Fuck culture, other people’s money will be buy me all the culture I want.
The Austrians can totally cheat by marrying off their royal family members to city-states. Stupid Austrian sperm getting in the way of me being voted leader of the world. If I had nickel…
I’m not ashamed to admit I’ll staying up for the release of Civilization 5’s expansion pack tonight.
Even though I have problems with it’s leader representations, I’m still excited. I just really, really hope that Boudicca doesn’t have boob-shaped armor or something.
The racism in Civilization 5 is starting to get to me.
Look, I’m completely addicted to this game, but this is getting to be a bit much. Here’s what you see when you open a dialogue with Alexander The Great:
And here’s Augustus Caesar. Note the radiant gleams of light dappling his face:
Annnnnnddd here’s Montezuma and Askia of The Songhai. Note the slightly different backgrounds:
Thankfully, Hiawatha and Pachacuti are bright and outdoors (there are about 16 civs in all), but this is some creepy imperialist shit right here.
And slightly off topic: but the leader of India is Gandhi. Why did they pick the badass warlord for every civilization except India?
