For the Robotech only folks, Protoculture isn't remotely the same.  It's only in Macross, for one, and it's neither a plant or energy source, but is as its name implies, the first culture, basically think Precursors or Forerunners.

Remotely the same as what?  My hypothetical Volt-Go-Formers show?

Between Macross, Southern Cross, MOSPEADA and Robotech.   Protoculture is the through line between the series in the US adaptation, but is only actually present in Macross as a term and there it means something else entirely.  Southern Cross does have the Flowers of Light though which basically do behave as what is presented in Robotech as Protoculture.  Neither are present in MOSPEADA.

I may be missing what you're trying to say, but hypothetically you could just find some way to bring the Matrix of Leadership into GoBots and Voltron to have a similar tie-together.

Have no idea what the proper story is vs. the non-proper story.

You probably mostly remember the adventures of the SDF-1 with Rick Hunter, Minmei, Admiral Gloval, etc.  Those episodes have nothing to do with the adventures of Rand and the other guys with motorcycles that turn into robots.  You probably have little to no memory of the adventures of Dana Sterling, but those were also hamfisted into the 'Robotech' umbrella despite having nothing to do with the above two series.

I watched all 3 series. Invid invasion was my favorite. macross was 2. Robotech Masters (Dana Sterling) was a distant 3rd.

And how did they not match up? Seemed to work pretty well?

Imagine you heard that a studio in Russia bought the rights to GoBots, Transformers, and Voltron, changed names and some dialogue, and then played them together as seasons in a series with their stories and characters all somehow being connected.

Is there any way to cancel a unit's movement?  I accidentally tapped a spot way across the map, and now my unit just keeps automatically moving there no matter what I do.  Can't figure out how to cancel it.

The game looks great, but my iPad feels like it's going to melt after about 10 minutes.  I've never felt it get this hot before.

I had trouble cancelling a unit's movement, too.  I think maybe you need to re-select the unit by pressing the unit icon in the bottom right (end turn slider) repeatedly?  I'll have to try later.

I think I was able to press and hold on a unit to erase its previous orders and give it new ones.

Do you know how to sell units or upgrade them?

Has there been any changes to the map sizes? My main quibble with Civ Rev was that even the largest maps were too small; it was impossible to avoid the other civilizations even early on in the game.

Hmm, unless I'm missing something there doesn't seem to be any way to adjust map size when you create a game.  I haven't mapped the entire planet in a game yet, so I can't comment on how big the standard map is.

Interface seems really clean and intuitive.  I'm trying my first game on an iPhone 4S and so far everything's easy to see.  Getting a few framerate hiccups during fast scrolling and at the start of combat animations.

Attacking my first barbarian camp, I couldn't see what the defending unit was until I attacked, unless I had the Scout ability.  Is that a new game mechanic?  I can't remember.

Oh and this seems neat.  At about turn 5 my domestic advisor presented me with a choice of 4 goals from my citizens, oriented toward combat, commerce, research, and something else.  I chose 'kill 2 barbarians', so let's see what that amounts to.  (amounted to a free upgrade to one of my combat units)

Ok, that's all you get for now.  Framerate issues are getting a bit too annoying, so I'll have to wait until I can play on my iPad.  I don't recommend the game if you'll be playing on a 4S or weaker.

Aside from the framerate issues, seems pretty good so far.

Civilization Revolution 2 also notably shuns the dominant free-to-play business model in mobile gaming. It costs 10.49 to download from the App Store, with no in-app purchases.

I did see this blurb, though:
Quote
Developer 2K China is also promising to release additional map sections and civilization leaders through the App Store. Players will have the option to purchase these characters and areas and add them to their game, although doing so is purely cosmetic.

I just found a forumer's impressions on Pocket Tactics that calls it Civ Rev 1 with more polish.  He unfortunately also says the AI isn't much better, which is disappointing.

I'd love to have a better CivRev in my pocket though, so I guess I'll be a guinea pig.  I think I have time for one game this morning, so I'll try to get some quick impressions up in an hour.

Bummer.  Well, I guess I'll just shift my hopes and dreams over to Titanfall 2.

I did that a looooooong time ago.

You never ended up buying it though, did you?  I've sunk a hefty chunk of time into it and enjoyed the ride, but I was hoping they'd add more Titans or at least new weapons as they update the game.  New game modes may excite other people, but that's not at all what I'm looking for.  The multiplayer FPS games I've sunk the most time into have just had one or two game modes that have stayed the same for the numerous years I played them.

There are burn cards for Titans now, which sounds fun.  I'd love to get back into the game but I'm stalled out on a really annoying regen challenge that's deflating my interest.  I also really wish they'd hint at some new Titan types coming in the semi-near future.  New maps and game modes seem a little lackluster for paid DLC, at least for my wallet.

The problem I have with this is that government stepped in and voided a legally granted trademark because it was 'offensive.'

Rather than just ambiguously "offensive", would you say that the team name consists of or comprises immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter; or matter which may disparage or falsely suggest a connection with persons, living or dead, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols, or bring them into contempt, or disrepute?

Just because we are the minority on this forum does not mean that we are wrong on the issue.


So you are saying the Native American's are right then.  stirthepot

Side note on the Native American / Indian.  Upon moving to New Mexico I learned that the Indians here prefer to be called Indians.  All the references you see around here pretty much all say Indian, from Indian tacos to Indian dances to the Indian Culture Center.  Generally, they think "Native American" is a stupid term.  Using just "Native" is acceptable.

I prefer whitebread over whitey. Whitey has a negative connotation.
I also prefer just "pale" as opposed to "paleskin".
Caucasian is just a bizarre word. Don't use it to describe me, thank you.

I wonder if these "Natives" care about my concerns?

If there was a cultural shift and pale whitebreads decided they didn't want to be called Caucasian whitey paleskins anymore, then yeah, I think the Indians around here would respect that.  Why wouldn't they?

Cultural shift? Is that what this is? Does this "cultural shift" include Natives getting more respect? My argument is that the disrespect because of a football's teams name wasn't there in the first place.

And you're the only one here that actually considered that turnaround would be fair play  thumbsup to that.

There's no cultural shift needed for the Redskin issue, because it's always been an offensive term.  Currently, Caucasian isn't considered an offensive term, so it would take a cultural shift for it to become one.

I have no idea what you mean about Indians getting more respect.  Are you saying this is happening because people respect Indians more than they used to?  If so, that sounds pretty great.  Are you saying this is happening because Indians are making a marketing play to get more respect?  Try and get more hits on their tribal websites or something?
