Growing your cities in Civilization VI

Growing your cities in Civilization VI

Time to share my thoughts the part of Sid Meier’s Civilization VI that has to do with growing your cities. With the information released so far, we know a few things.

Civilization VI: Press event

Civilization VI: Press event

Recently (18 July) I was invited to a press event by 2K Nederland in Breda. Here I would have the chance to play the upcoming Sid Meier’s Civilization VI for about 4 hours and talk with Dennis Shirk, Senior Producer on all things Civilization. Of course I had read and about and seen a lot of Civilization VI already. The steady stream of First Look video’s that Firaxis Games is releasing on their youtube channel cannot be missed if you’re a fan like me. So I was as prepared as I can be... Or so I thought…

XCOM 2 @ GamesCom: The fan experience

Here I tell you about how I experienced XCOM 2 at GamesCom 2015. When the announcement came for XCOM 2 from Firaxis Games, I immediately got excited in anticipation that 2K might show it off at GamesCom, the biggest games convention in the world aimed at consumers. As time progressed it became clear that 2K would indeed be presenting XCOM 2 at GamesCom, so I got ready to head off to Cologne! Just before I left, I got this huge surprise from Andrea at 2K: she got me access to GamesCom a whole day early! This is usually reserved for…
