I'm supposed to be finishing up the final edit of Stray. And I HAVE been working steadily through it, but slowed down by a sudden rash of "this could be better" which means I'm editing almost every paragraph - and, well, Civilisation V.
I played the first Civilisation when it came out, enjoyed it mildly, but have never really gone back. I'm not that into strategy games and while I find Civ fun, I can safely play it and know I'm not going to run through it more than a handful of times. But a handful of times is quite a lot of hours.
MAJOR lack in Civ V though - in the original Civ when your citizens decided they loved you, they built you a bit of palace and you got to pick out what it looked like. That was the best part!
