I have not seen anything to make me want to buy it.  I am happy with Civ IV.

I have read some VERY bad things about the AI. I think I will at least wait a few months, then reconsider it.

Also, it might be worth it to just wait the first, inevitable major DLC for more content. Or the second. Or the third. You catch my meaning :P

As soon as I finish this project for a client. I know I won't sleep once I started.

Warning Will Robinson!

Just went out and bought it, and discovered it requires DirectX 11 Hardware support on your video card.  Game won't run - I've only got 10.1.

Well, they're eventually going to release civ 6 for linux, so hopefully they'll patch windows versions to work with opengl too? Maybe 6 months from now? XD

Ordered a GeForce 1050 ti - should get here Thursday so we'll try again then.  I'd been wanting to get a new card anyway - my computer keeps locking up when the browser hits video content, and I've been suspecting it's due to an underpowered card.

That being said, I'm not very happy with the game so far.  I had to hunt all over to find a physical copy (ended up having to go to Target), 'cuz I wanted the usual cool map/tech tree inserts and didn't want to wait for one to be snail-mailed, then when I open the box it was essentially just a CD.  Then I couldn't play it - the release doesn't feel well executed.  I hope this isn't an indicator on the state of Firaxis' corporate health....

No, this is typical of modern video gaming.
You can have the cool tech tree as a .pdf if you buy the digital Collector's edition, of course.

Indeed. The only copies you can expect to have physical stuff in them at all is boxed collectors editions ( the ones you pay over twice the normal price for ).

I've even seen physical games in a CD case but without a CD inside and instead just a piece of paper with a key code for digital download. lol!

Oh, I know.  I just miss the good old days.  And I'm pretty sure that Civ 5 had *something* in it.

Steam has a lot to answer for.

I can't imagine the marginal production costs for a box and a map are that great even? I'm absolutely certain that the "collectors edition" does not cost an extra $20 to produce.

When I think about the amount of time I spent scrutinizing my Morrowind map.

A set of commemorative coins, and a book. That's what was in mine. Plus the Aztec DLC and a soundtrack I think.

My Civ 5 cd case had nothing but a steam code (not even a cd) and that was when first released.

Played everything up to IV extensively,strongly disliked V (found some mechanics broken, others fragile and AI-unfriendly and forcing ugly fixes).
I've watched a few gameplay videos, but haven't worked up any enthusiasm for Civ6.

I really don't care for turn based, hex tile, strategy games all that much. I prefer my strategy to be either real time, or turn based with a free form "map" (like Endless Space). That said, the Civ games are decent and I may get one of the newer ones if I see it for ~$5 on Steam.
