    What I meant was that online will have it there, but 2K haven't mentioned any coverage of it - so that makes me wonder if there'll just be the 90-turn demo for people to play and no new info. Still, even if there is no new info, we're only just over two weeks away from release.

    You'd have thought 2K would have been pushing it like nobody's business - with people able to pre-order at the event and the fact it's about to come out. Probably they will.

    :mad:

    This is so annoying, I drive by the LA convention center several times a day during work some days and I have been getting stoked seeing all the banners and ads for games go up. I always wanted to go to e3, and now I really want to go.

    Sad thing is, it is just during the weekdays and I will be unable to skip out on work for that.

    I was wondering is there no feedback from E3 about G&k?

    Moderator Action: Merged with another E3 thread.

    As far as I can tell, its only presence at the show is in the hands of a third party group, OnLive. 2K doesn't appear to be showcasing it like they did at PAX. At least that's what I got from their E3 blog post.

    The E3 is showing live on a channel called G4... Dish Network channel 191.

    It's expensive to set up at a show and I imagine they have to pick and choose.

    I'm watching a video where 2KGreg walks around showing all the booths (@~0:45) and there's a little corner for Civ. Only with a tv on the wall showing 'an unreleased trailer'.
    I haven't watch the full video, but it looks to me that civ is taking a back seat on the E3.

    True.
    I've sent a tweet to 2K Games to ask if they're going to stream the trailer (or make it public soon).

    If you look at the stream you can see a little bit of the trailer running on the tv on the wall. It's not much, though, and hardly visible. Also it doesn't look that interesting (wonder screens, cgi). But at least it's something :p

    I don't know what OnLive actually is, but this sounds kinda important.

    OnLive offers cloud gaming. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but I think it means that you could theoretically play your already purchased game (such as civ 5) from any computer connected to the internet without having to download Steam or the game itself. It would be like playing a browser game.

    Cloud gaming means the games are run on remote servers, and its graphics and audio is streamed to your computer, tablet etc, so you don't have to install the games, and more importantly they can run all games at the highest graphical quality, regardless of the hardware performance of your computer.

    In terms of payment, they are now using a subscription model.
