    These podcasts are really enjoyable to listen to. So far, they haven't really revealed a lot of new gameplay information or anything, but they really help to give a broader impression of how the game will play and what it will feel like. Though I suspect when we get closer to release, we'll get more gameplay informative segments, such as ones on MP and stuff.

    Thanks! I want to see a picture of Elizabeth, I wonder if she's good looking?

    Edit- through the magic of google I found one! I always pictured her as a long curly haired brunette..... She's short and blonde :). O well....

    Is her real hair color that inconclusive? She was a redhead in civ4...

    Sooo, I take it civ leaders have defeat messages (and not just moods after losing a city or something) a la FFH, which is fantastic.

    He was referring to 2K Elizabeth.

    Sounds like Monty will be fun again. Or, possibly frustrating if he's actually competent this time. It also sounds like Ghandi will be a pushover, easily steamrolled. Too bad. I guess nonviolent resistance won't be very effective against a stampede of Cossacks =o

    2000 bones?
    I guess Ekmek will vomit after he read this :D.


    After reading the part about Gandhi, that he shoud appear strong and mighty, i directly thought they should take again a look at Augustus, but that was directly the next thing they mentioned :lol:. He looks like an arrogant...er...i guess i can't say this here.
    In game, if he's weak he'll be just a pain and sure the first one to be extincted, because he's just annoying :D.


    Oh, and interesting that so many persons work at the leaders.
    Looking at the styles i thought it would be maybe 3 different persons. Good work for the style, is partially really consistent :goodjob:.

    No offense but.... the music? The leader animations?

    These aren't really the most interesting subjects for official podcasts. There are many other factors (eg the design philosophy) that we'd be more interested in hearing about.

    All in good time :)

    We have a podcast planned for every week until release; they will cover a large variety of subjects!

    Thanks for putting up the RSS feed, Greg! I'm trapped on a plane tomorrow, but it's nice to know I can spend some of the time listening to the podcasts. Keep 'em coming!

    In case 2KGreg comes back, the link to the podcast is up in the iTunes store but it isn't working. The store says the link is invalid. Anyone else having this issue?

    I like the insight on the aesthetic part of it. Besides, I'm guessing the art style is a lot more stable right now than some other areas of the game are.

    I just wish the voice-overs between questions weren't so jarringly separate from the rest of the interview.
