  1. Back up for me!
  2. Official announcement from Firaxis on their site. They're releasing two more DLC packs with three new leaders representing Africa and Southeast Asia. Both will be free for people who bought the Digital Deluxe version!
  3. It's too delicious not to do. Also, where Victoria uses her fan as a prop, Henry should have a half-eaten haunch of meat. He should use it gesture at the player while talking and casually eat from it while awaiting a player's response. I know it's something of a caricature, but let's face it; so are all the CivVI leaders.
  4. Cross-posted from a thread I made at CFC. When considering a second leader for England, I'm sure some people immediately jump to Elizabeth I. After all, she's a very significant leader and has been in every other version of civ to date. But what if this time, her boisterous, blustering father was featured instead? After all, Henry VIII is one of the most iconic English monarchs ever. His loud, larger-than-life personality might make a nice contrast with Victoria's prim and proper attitude. We are going for "big" personalities in Civ VI, after all. Now I know Gorgo shares Pericles' music, but I don't think it would be too challenging to put together a version of Greensleeves for Henry to have a unique theme. There's already a version in game, after all. His unique agenda could be called "A Man for All Seasons" (tongue-in-cheek, of course). Our it could be "Renaissance Man." I suggest that he favor leaders who align with him in emphasizing one particular interest, and then have that interest change at random throughout the game to represent Henry's own constantly shifting interests. He might start out obsessed with culture, then be fanatical about religion, then become a hardcore militarist. This would fit with how he jumped around in his pet projects, from composing music to jousting and wrestling to defending the faith to fighting the church to invading Calais. Yes, I am suggesting that King Henry channel Mr. Toad from The Wind in the Willows ever so slightly, at least in terms of shifting interests. Finally, he needs to be voiced by BRIAN BLESSED. If you don't know why I wrote his name in all caps, then you probably haven't heard of him. Google Henry 8.0 to see his portrayal of a modern day Henry's exploits in various BBC comedy sketches. Seriously, this needs to happen.
  5. That's amazing! Thank you so much. A Word document should be just fine, provided we can preserve all the html tags.
  6. Vegemite Sandwich. Full circle. Boom.
  7. My namesake has already been voted "the most punchable face in Civ6," and the DLC hasn't even been released yet.
  8. One right after the other, nice.
  9. Maybe we could just tag the threads with a [News] prefix as needed?
  10. We could start an official news subforum. And maybe link from our Facebook page?
  11. They verified Persia as the first half of the double civ DLC pack. The Persia First Look video is up too. Leader is Cyrus. Second civ in the pack is still officially TBA, but Macedonia is starting to look more and more likely.
  12. Mene mene tekel upharsin! Persian DLC is confirmed.
  13. I heard a bit about that on the way to work myself.
  14. I've tried retrieving my blog text from the Wayback Machine, but it only archived the main blog page, not the individual entries. In the worst case scenario, I could search my data backups from a few years ago to see if I have any rough drafts saved, but I would likely have to do some substantial formatting to restore it to what it was. Is there any chance of the blog text being archived on the back end somewhere? We just need to retrieve it so it can be reposted. I don't want to lose it after all the effort it took to put together.
