Civilization: Beyond Earth video special - Probably the only game I'll pre-order this year
So I've been a big Civ fan since the 90's as a kid growing up, and have been playing it all through up until its last iteration in Civ 5 especially with the OMGeek crew. We seriously love this game! We lovingly call it the time sink or black hole because we've sunk in tens of hours and have played 5-7 hour sessions straight. Hey that's a hell of a long time for us old farts, we're not as young as we used to be. That being said, I don't think I've really sunk in that much time in a game in recent times, so you can only understand my absolute joy hearing that we've got another one on the way. Being a massive fan of Sci-Fi, this is going to tick all the boxes for me in terms of setting, storyline, technology and overall feel. I never actually played Alpha Centauri but everyone seems to agree that this is the spiritual successor and I can't wait to get my hands on it. Day one purchase? You bet. October 24 is marked on my calendar. Now sit back and enjoy this week's Wideo Wednesday special with two amazing videos.
