Civilization VI settles on iPad today at a discounted price

New frontiers ahoy for Sid Meier's Civilization VI. After spending the past year or so on PC, Mac, and Linux, the renowned 4X strategy game is coming to a more mobile format (if we ignore the invention of laptops, of course.) Today, Civ VI&...

Praise the lord! Civilization VI gets a religion update

While Civilization VI is an excellent game, its not without some flaws. The most noticeable shortcoming as with the religious victory path. Not only was the combat pretty brain dead, but it was far too easy to amass a small convent of pries...

Get a feel for Civilization VI with this 60-turn demo

How much can you get done in your first 60 turns of a Civilization campaign? If you're anything like me in Civ VI and are prone to oh-so-tempting barbarian distractions, not a whole heck of a lot. Firaxis Games has a Windows-only Civilizati...

Peter Glagowski's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

2016 wasn’t the best year for gaming, at least in my opinion. We definitely saw some solid titles come out (along with the end of a decade-long wait for two games!), but a lot of the major releases this year were retreads of tired the...

Civilization VI's fall update has a lot of changes

As a novice-at-best Civilization player, I tend not to get these games at launch. I know I'll enjoy them, but the discounts will eventually come and so too will updates and expansions. I'm usually not in a rush! With Civilization VI, though...

Review: Civilization VI

Over the course of many playthroughs and almost three full days of game time, Civilization VI is still on my mind. I’ve gone through the motion of placing districts, training an army, distributing “great” people, and build...

Review in Progress: Civilization VI

Many empires have risen and fallen throughout the history of mankind. What once stands as a towering achievement to human ingenuity and engineering soon becomes rubble, dust, and bones. The cycle repeats and history moves on; nothing demons...

Dang, the Civilization VI launch trailer is really good

Rarely do launch trailers feature actually launches, but Civilization VI's does. That's far from the only thing it has working in its favor, though. It's an extremely well-executed video and you should take two minutes to watch it. Because...

Civilization VI feels like a new beginning for the series

Sitting down to write this preview was a challenge. That isn’t because I can’t describe Civilization VI or I don’t like the game; it has to do with the nature of turn-based strategy titles. They become so addicting that yo...

I (Peter the Great) will be a great leader in Civilization VI

I've been playing a lot of the preview build for Civilization VI and I noticed a conspicuous lack of the Russian empire. 2K games has just revealed that the enlightened ruler will be making an appearance in the upcoming Civ, alongside the 1...

What hardware will it take to overthrow Gandhi in Civ VI?

Civilization VI will be releasing in a little less then a month's time. Prospective buyers may want to know if their hardware is capable enough (spoiler alert: it probably is). Firaxis has revealed what kind of PC it will take to topple the...

Good luck getting past Gandhi in Civilization VI

For years, Mahatma Gandhi has struck fear in the hearts of Civilization players as a nuke-amassing warlord. He seems like a pleasant-enough guy at first -- someone who doesn't resort to violence, much less violence on a nuclear scale -- bu...
