That's right! Firaxis has just announced... Civ 3: Collect More Money!

This will be the completed Civ 3 set... Original, Play the World, and Conquests in one box. No new material whatsoever has been mentioned in the press I've seen on this.

Er... wasn't this done before? Gold or Platinum or Lithium or something like that? Guess they need more money so they can afford to hire another 19 animators for those Wonders of the Worlds HDTV resolution movices...

I think this is the Civ III : Sid Meier's Valium Mix.

It's officially called "Collection". Oh well. "Collection", "Collect More Money", which do you think is the more honest marketting? ;)

Civ 3: Times Three!


Civ 3: Even More!

If they bumped up max cities, I'll buy it.

Nothing else matters.

10-08-2004, 13:53:28
honest marketing is a great oxymoron!

10-08-2004, 13:54:34
"Collection, pass the plate"

Why didn't you make this a news item, Darkstar, you ingrown gorilla asshair?

10-08-2004, 14:47:20
I knew they would do it this way, Civ-2 was done exactly the same way.

I'll wait till it hits the bargin bin, when the 2nd Civ 4, "Play the Computer" comes out.

Because I'm mocking them, Venom. That just doesn't feel like a real "news piece" to me.

10-08-2004, 16:33:58
Mocking news is the best news. If not, no one would watch the Daily Show.

10-08-2004, 16:44:43
People watch the Daily Show?

10-08-2004, 16:46:21
Exhibit number 145631 why you're an idiot.

10-08-2004, 16:49:32
Exhibit 145632: I've never heard of the Daily Show.

10-08-2004, 16:50:01
The number seems low, maybe the counter is broken.

Exhibit numer 145631 has nothing to do with not having seen the show. It has everything to do with you commenting on something you've never seen as though you had.

Well, since we are such a small site, I didn't want to chase away the free games "we" get offered for reviewing purposes. ;)

I think that counter flipped, Chris. ;)

Its the only honest news station in the US.

They define themselves as "The Fake News".

They are doing damn well. All those awards and just this week they got Clinton and Tom Cruise on the show.

And if McCain or Dole appear any more on that show the UN is going to give them refugee status and allow them to move into the studio forever.

Clinton on the show was great


19-08-2004, 22:12:41
But are they Fair and Balanced? :D

19-08-2004, 22:14:03
No. "Stupid, but Funny" is their motto. ;)

They do have interesting insights, like the Illinois senate race. Some GOP official made a noncommital remark about Keyes having been chosen by the party, and Stewart said something like "how bad is it when you need an alibi for your decision?" :)

The max cities is a major problem if you have the system and can play on a map with lots of civilizations...

Here's to arbitrary, game destroying limits :beer:

I've discovered one benefit to hard city limits in CivIII.

On huge maps, like the 362x362 monster I'm currently playing, it means that there are oodles of strategic and luxury resources that will remain beyond the boundaries of any civ for the entire game; this makes acquiring, defending, and stealing colonies much more important and interesting.
