    That's a nice game at a great price, looking forward to the sequel. I'm hoping for a bit of a cut price Crysis package as I missed the one around xmas.

    The Squeenix daily is:

    The game costs 3.75 US dollars, which is 2.76 €uros. We Europeans are paying double :rolleyes:

    The weekend deal is:

    It seriously annoys me to see these huge differences between US and Euro pricing. What's the deal, STEAM?

    If anyone wants to buy steam games at US prices, I'll do it for you! (send me the paypal $$ in USD and I just gift it to you). Plus we can get free Heatware evalvs like this xD

    I've done it with Mussels and it was quick and painless for both parties

    Only the countries that use euros, here in Britain its £2.49 which only about 10% more then the americans

    civ five is 30 euros, thats over £25 which is really bad when you consider that it could be found for £24.99 when it launched in Britain

    So whats the general opinion of Civ5? I have not played a Civ game since 2 (I think or maybe 1 can't remember). Civ4 looks like a no brainer to me, but Civ5 I'm not sure about for $30. Maybe if it was the $7.50 Civ4 was.

    No point in buying Civ 4 if you buy Civ 5 IMO.

    Civ 4 is great, but Civ 5 is just better, much better IMO. I love Civilization games, but 50$ is steep. At 30$ I would jump on it like a monkey on Bananas

    but it also satisfies some die-hard Civ fans :D I've played Civ 1,2,3,4, and 5 :cool: Civ 1 and 2 barely, but 3 alot, 4 enormously and 5 medium (too many other games to play xD until Civ 4 I was limited by my crappy laptop.)

    Downloading Civ V now, I've already got the cursing and the Irish parts licked, that just leaves the game and the sailing.

    its far worse than the previous games, very dumbed down.

    feels like they wanted to copy starcraft 1 (before II came out and upped the ante)


    that said, you'll get more than $3.74's worth of entertainment for it. at least they learned what price its really worth.

    You would think steam would ask for your age somewhere and save it in settings. Its a tad bit annoying when you have to tell your age each time. :/
