    So .... how easy is it to pick up the intricacies of Civ V?

    (I've never played a Civ game before)

    Civ 5 is the easiest to pick up so far in the series. I'd recommend the Complete Edition so that you start out with the expansions...at a minimum, Gods & Kings is mandatory.

    that's what I got =)

    It's easy enough to learn the basics, but I think the tutorial doesn't go into much detail on some of the finer points like Happiness (or maybe I just didn't pay attention when they talked about it).

    On your first playthrough you explore the tech tree, and the game will take you a while as you learn what each tech and unit and resource is for. But it's on subsequent games that you'll really come to appreciate the diplomacy, culture and tourism features, and realise why people have hundreds of hours banked in this game.

    yeah, I got it to play against a friend

    On the tooic of ground zeroes: I bought it day one full price and have zero regrets, but you need to want to dig deep and do missions multiple times and get the best rank and stuff. It is a great game with lots of content if you want to do that.

    If you want to just play through everything once though you may be better off just watching a let's play because it will take you like 3 hours tops.

    I love the game, personally, just want people to make informed purchases.

    Pretty awesome though! If you liked old 2000AD-ish fantasy it's the game for you.

    You specifically lose the ability to play in 60fps unless you're running windowed or a borderless fullscreen hack.

    It's hard not to notice as even the title screen lags.

    Neither did I. I just meant, like, let's both of us play with trucks. But the prospect of a high speed lorry race through London is appealing.

    This steam broadcast stuff is pretty cool. Really nice to check out how the game plays before buying it.

    Also, Kojima is weird. Took me a few minutes to figure out this goofy song was actually playing in Ground Zeroes and not just from the streamer's pc.

    Silly questions, but is there an easy way to convert an amazon gift card into steam wallet cash? The only steam gift cards on the site are priced over their actual worth.

    You just have to be careful cause I've just barely caught myself paying for the boxed PC copy to be delivered via mail instead of the digital copy
