Civilization IV: Colonization (prop. Sid Meier) is due out all sorts of soon, but we’ve yet to see a teaser or trailer. UNTIL NOW! See how I surprised you? Of course, showing me an RTS or TBS is the equivalent of showing a 12th century peasant an iPhone. I react with fear, suspicion, and ultimately setting things on fire. Fortunately, three other people in the RPS Orbital Station know all about the things, meaning I’m usually safe from them. But suddenly I find myself alone, frightened, and hiding in a corner from the conquesty complications of a Sid Meier game.
Thank goodness it’s all pre-rendered poppycock, and not the game running at all. Come along now Firaxis, the game’s out in two weeks. Give the people who understand this sort of thing the sort of thing they understand.
