Wow … Steam and D2D had $10 sales on it earlier this year … I assumed that would be the new 'going price' since Civ V.

After all, it's been argued that the real-world US dominance of global affairs is more due to exporting our culture than anything else. So, again, realistic, but fun?
Actually, yeah. I found the addition of religion quite good. It was a nice way of making money, getting computer players to like or dislike you and added a new dimension. It was quite fun. I've never been good at any of the civs, but I like playing them nonetheless. I haven't played the first one or the last one though.

A few years ago I bought a Civ II "Classic Edition" on a huge and well-known flea market.

GOG's holiday sale has started, with reductions from 30%-50%. Apparently they were counting down to this.
I'm probably picking up both BG-games later.

It should be against the law to have holday events two weeks before the holiday.

I'm a Civ newbie with #4, and I think it's poorly explained, complex and really infuriating. I felt like I didn't know what I was doing and whenever I tried to beat someone they always won. I tried the demo of V and found it much more intuitive and friendly, so I'd say start with that or - if you have a DS/iDevice/PS3/360 - start with Civ. Revolution.

Pay what you want (!) for a bundle of five Indie games:
  • Braid
  • Cortex Command
  • Machinarium
  • Osmos
  • Revenge of the Titans
(from the Humble Bundle thread, for more exposure)

As is GamersGate's sale, which is likely better if you want the lesser known titles or European games.

GamersGate is actually cheaper with some games, too.

just grabbed Grotesque: tactics for under ten bucks, same w/ entire Elven Legacy series on Steam for under ten bucks.

the original Elven Legacy destroyed me by like mission 6, but I'm willing to give it another try. I hear some of the later installments are a little more forgiving!

If you like horror suggest you check out Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Under ten bucks too.

I grabbed the Elven Legacy package from Gamer's Gate to get all the expansions for a song. Sweet deal! Is there a decent manual for this game. The original printed manual in English is about as obtuse as I've read.

I think there was one on the 1C boards, Thrasher, but they're currently down so I can't check for you at the minute.
