Civ Online, you say? I'm not sold. Especially if Sid Meier has not involved himself further than "his blessing." I am still interested, however. Can't wait to see how it develops.

I know, right? If they had said that Sid Meier was heavily involved in it or something along thsoe lines, that'd make it an instabuy. But the man seems to be very honest, and that's a huge reason why everyone respects the Civ franchise and Meier so much.

I wonder if anyone's going to have a problem with Civilization Online, seeing what happened with SimCity.

How are these two even comparable? This is an MMO, not a single player being forced to be online. Now, if you always had be online with Civ V, that would've been comparable.

Well, MMOs usually force you to be online, and the Civilization series isn't really an MMO series, so I would think the issue still applies...

That would depend on what exact issue you are referring to. SimCity is borderline MMO at best, and it's not even RPG. If you are going to compare another game with CO you might as well compare it to WoW.

It'd be interesting to see if CO will still be a turn-based game, which doesn't seem very likely.

Quite likely because MMOs are far more successful in Asia than North America, since people in NA like to play console games over PC games.

My thoughts exactly. I would love to give this game a shot.

Meh... honestly, when I hear MMORPG and Civ, what I want to hear is "heavy strategy aspects" and so forth, not something that sounds like, at best, competitive and repetitive city building with fewer options than off-line alternatives.

Sucks that it won't be available in North America for a while, that will mean Aus won't see it for even longer. I've been wanting to start playing a decent mmorpg, but more waiting will have to occur.
