I remember playing a game of Civ 2, and a barbarian occupied one of my cities with nothing in it. A few turns later they had discovered alphabet.

Barbarians? Retards.

(Epilogue: I used cheat mode to spawn nuclear missiles and destroyed their city).

I really like the new combat system, but I don't like the dumbed down... "everything else".

I'm quite happy about the removal of the "stack of doom" mechanic. It's much easier to defend your resources tiles from 2 or 3 marauding spearmen than 20.

There are few things more satisfying than performing a merry jig with a Giant Death Robot on the flaming ruins of a barbarian camp.

Civilization V isn't quite as deep as Civilization IV, that is true. However, deep isn't always better. Many of the things that were streamlined or removed in Civ V (religion, I'm looking at you!) made it look like they were just trying to make the game look deep by adding more breadth. Bleugh!

I.e., what usually happens when you kick diplomatic envoys into a pit of spikes.

"Also, vanilla Civ IV wasn't that great too so who knows what can happen on the upcoming expansions?"

This was my knee-jerk response to people complaining about Civ 5, too. Seeing it from someone else made me think a little harder: Civ 1 and 2 didn't need expansion packs to be good.

Heh, I agree with the diplomacy photo note by Jeff. That ALWAYS happens except in this comic, the tank-crashing-down-wall bit happens a lot because of those barbarians.

[url=#user_comment_44326]@Serathis[/url], it's not link. It's a girl scout. Cuz it's, you know, a little girl who is a scout.

In the last game I played I encountered at least 5 barbarian destroyers. Yes, as in the modern attack ship. Also some barbarian paratroopers.

It just goes to show that you NEVER shoot a messenger, unless you want a front row seat to a reenactment of the Mongol invasion of Khwarezmia.

idk about the new version but atleast in the last version building the Great Wall keeps barbarians out of your homelands, most cities outside of the wall will generally be less income than those inside it anyway.

I hate how barbarians wreak havoc on my continent until i manage to unite it completely under my rule.

Germies are awesome with raging barbarians though.

So Link is now a scout? Also, appealing for a wider audience? Check what are they doing with Heroes of Stalingrad. That's how it's done right!

Scout-chan looks adorable in a sad kind of way in panel 2.

I haven't played a civ game since II, but I may give this one a try. The perceived complexity of the past titles turned me off, so if V is seen as 'dumbed down' by fans of the series; it might be right up my alley.

I always explore with a warrior. Since I usually play as Nobunaga the warrior is more than enough for petty barbarian encampments and can still explore fairly decent.
