When you boil it down, Civ is Civ! I didn't care for 5 at first, since to me it seemed a watered down version of what I was used to with some really different game mechanics, but it's grown on me over time. Not my favorite iteration of the game, but still can be quite enjoyable in it's own way. IMHO...

Ah, ok. Lamesauce. I'll probably still buy things through GG, since they do the coins and all that jazz. I'm a sucker I guess. :)

This thread resulted in me playing Civ4 until about 1AM this morning. This after resolving to quit by 11:30. Curse you Sid Meier, sleep thief! Always gets me!

The 95% figure seems fishy to me...it seems to me an awful lot of folks picked up CK2 on GG, myself included. From what I remember during the development process, there was a great deal of consternation from a lot of people about the possibility of it being released Steam only (as there always is wi...

You still need to log into your GG account to install anything bought from GamersGate, even if you keep the install files. All of the GG installs contain an encrypted launcher or setup file that is de-encrypted once you enter in your GG account info and then re-encrypted after the game is installed...

Nope, Gamersgate need their account to install all their games. Disconnect internet, and you can no longer install a Gg game, as you need to log on the Gg server to download the installation files [The trick is to take these temporary drm-free (if you bought the so-so drm-free games from Gg) instal...

For what it's worth, unlike most folks here I actually like 8. I upgraded from 7 on my laptop and it runs like a champ. I've tried to have an open mind regarding the changes, and it hasn't been overly difficult to adjust, in my opinion. Using the desktop looks no different than Win 7, aside from the...

No, October 26th I believe. Just the release preview is out now, I didn't know if any beta folks had tinkered with it and AJE. I'm contemplating purchasing the upgrade to 8, so I just thought I'd ask about compatibility, for future reference :)

Windows 8

Will this game be compatible with Windows 8? I know the specs say Windows xp and above, but I know sometimes when things first come out experiences can be dodgy. I did a cursory search around the forum but didn't find anything specific to AJE..Unless I'm a dunce and totally missed something, which i...

If we purchased the base game from you, would DLC purchased on steam (when it comes out eventually) be compatible with the base game from your store? Or how would that work?
