I'm a big fan of Civilization. I've lost hundreds of hours to the franchise, but for some reason Beyond Earth never bit me. The concept is great, but the execution never grabbed me as much as I wanted it to.
The new expansion for the spin off does look neat though. Rising Tides is going to bring the space fairing civilization builder to the seas in a big way and you can see what's up in this new gameplay video.
I saw this and a lot more from the game at E3, and I will definitely try it out. I want to find a reason to love this game, and I know several other people are too. Hopefully this is the one that grabs all the lapsed players.
