I am. I have a Mac, so I will be waiting a while. What about you guys?
I live in Europe, so I'll have to wait until the 24th. Luckily the demo is released for all on the 21st
Still, I have sympathies for you and your Mac. Might be a long wait
If you've got an intel-based Mac you can install Windows on your computer. I did it once and it's quite easy. You just have to... you know, buy windows (a waste of money but still )
My parents won't let me get till Christmas
But, I can still get the demo
I'm also sad that i will not be able to play it , because i will not buy it .
Why won't you be buying it The J? And yeah Skwink, you can just use boot-camp. Very simple. Just search boot camp in Finder.
from his sig i would guess because of steam
I am sad also
I was so looking forward to a new version of CIV 5
Hopping for it to look more like CIV 3
But it looks like anything but a CIV game
So, I will not buy it
At least until I had the chance to properly test the demo or wait for the add-ons
You can't make everybody happy. I didn't like Civ 3 at all. I loved Civ 4 but the war mechanics are a mess. And if you try to play a multiplayer game it's a disaster. I know it's not supposed to be a network game, but it's fun to waste your life *with* other people
I am very sad because I won't play it on release. Since I live in europe. And even more sad since it's a digital download, so it makes no sense at all. I'm sure it makes some sense because of evil agreements with evil retailers, but for us, it's a nonesense discrimination.
right, that's it.
seems like a silly reason to miss out on a great game.
No not at all, I almost was not going to get it due to steam, a lot of people aren't real happy about it. But lets not hijack this thread...
If I had a Mac and no PC or possibility to run Windows, I'd buy a second hand PC just to play Civ5.
I'd completely get rid of my pc (since I have a mac, I don't need the two) if it wasn't for Civ. I honestly... can't live without that game. My friends and I are constantly meeting just to play in a small lan party and Civ is perfect for that. And since it's better to keep the barbarians away (==windows) - the pc is here to stay
I just wonder - will the mac version be steam connected now, that steam in on MacOS...
My graphics card is probably not up to it, though I'm going to give the demo a whirl. I just can't justify upgrading/replacing my PC right now, so Civ5 will have to wait until maybe next year.
The only sad part is I'm in class from 9:15 am until 8:00 pm on Tuesdays with very minimal breaks in between classes. At least I know it'll be completely downloaded by the time I'm back in my room.
Its a good thing that Iceland (where I live) is getting Civ 5 on the 21st even despite technically being a European country
.....and we get to pay for our STEAM products in dollars as well which means we pay less then those of you who have to deal in Euros as well
Just another proof that the EU sucks......
Your loss man, making yourself strong for a cause no one is interested in. Fight on, mr Quichotte! Go get them!
I pretty much only buy games that release on steam. There are a few exceptions - I'll buy Blizzard games (their download manager works fine for me), and if a game is good enough I'll make an exception anyway, but yeah. Steam is my preferred platform for PC gaming.
