    Well, that's interesting at least. Probably get the patch on Tuesday then, one day before the DLC. I think that's how it worked out last time.

    LOL - They better release the patch before the DLC...........I think these forums and 2ks might explode due the ranting and fuming that would occur otherwise!!!

    I like their special ability. Would like to see what the Moai Statues give.

    I think I'll pass on this one, at least until they have the game fixed to the point where I can play it on a huge map on high-end hardware without being able to read a short story between turns. And, sorry, with Portal 2 due out in, what, two months, the window is closing for them to get this right. I just have so much time for games, and Civ V is going to have to fight for my attention a lot harder.

    Yeah WTH Polynesia. I don't think they were that important in history.

    But they look pretty cool, scenario seems nice and it seems people demanded Polynesians. I've read on several forums and polls that demand for Polynesia was high and I like to see Firaxis doing DLC like that.

    Wow, first we had fountain of youth being put in, and now this?

    Sure there where 'some' more historically important and significant civs they could have put in.

    What they gonna put in next? Klingons? Daleks maybe? :)

    Any new DLC's are welcome in my books.

    I'm still waiting for Shaka and the Zulus though.

    As opposed to all of those times the Zulu and the Ethiopians and the Maya took over the world . . .

    it's the following of the "fail civ" DLC:
    -Incas
    -Polynesians

    More to come:
    -Celts
    -Poland
    -Canada
    -Armenia

    EDIT: it's a joke, i'm really eager to have the celts (see my avatar => britanny flag)!!!!

    So many erections right now.

    And "fail civ" not important to history?

    Polynesian territory. That makes Russia look small.

    You don't understand. If it's not Europe or Western Civilization it doesn't count.

    "Can embark and move over ocean tiles straight away" - so they start with the Optics/Astronomy stuff straight away, or they can move after embarking?

    yes, this is a good addition. It balances the game a bit by adding:

    1 - A civ from a completely ignored part of the world (game wise - see prior versions)
    2 - another islands/naval civ (for those of us who don't play pangea all the time)
    3 - more fun :D

    I'd assume they start with a 'special' upgrade that gives them the same thing as what you get with Optics/Astronomy.

    that's important since they crossed the oceans looking for more islands well before anyone figured out 'astronomy'. (in a purely technical sense)

    LOL, yeah I was just detailing my outrage to a friend about the 'evil' side of the Civ community. You know, the ones who tug one off to Napoleon everyday.
     
  20. Of course Polynesia is important they settled a whole bunch of islands and uh, um... built big statues! and... er... hmm...

    However I will say to one of the above posters that Inca is not a fail civ, they had quite a respectable empire in their day. They were simply behind Europe.
