With regard to Civ5, does Brave New World add much? I liked GoK but not enough to hold prolonged interest.

(With regard to whether EU4 gets front page coverage, please limit to the official release if possible as these tend to be pure strategy.)
Quill18 has an interesting collection of preview videos for EU4. The new diplomacy system is covered in #5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrPT…32gDYzyG2aMD8m. And trade is covered in #6: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qNZ…32gDYzyG2aMD8m. Looks like it will be perfectly feasible to run colonial/trading approach without having to be a megalomaniac, military, expansionist - that last is an aspect of 4X games I'm pretty browned off with.
