... hello, world. I think I mentioned a few weeks back that I'd installed Civ 5 ?

... well, now you know why I haven't posted anything for the past few weeks :)

(that, and kittens, of course ...)

So, how is Civ 5, for someone who's played Civs 1, 2, 3, 5, CtP, and SMAC(X) ? Good ! Different - a bit slower-moving, and obviously lots of changes (cosmetic and game-play - e.g. the hex grid, and one-unit-per-tile rule), but I'm liking it a lot. And a patch has just been released which should improve the issue with AI turns taking a long time, even at the beginning of the game.
I'll try to check in every now and then to see how the world is doing without me.

And here are our kittens, being friendly :

That looks more like a painting than a photo. Have you thought of turning it into cards? I'd buy a pack of note cards with that picture.

They need to fix multiplay. We need real turn based and hot seat multiplay and the option to leave the graphics on. Then it'll be perfect

that said - I still play both civ 4 and civ 3 every so often for different reasons as well. But I do like Civ 5
