    okay, I tried out the demo

    I liked it, but it seems a little bit

    slow, I guess

    I mean, there's not really any challenge or anything going on at the beginning

    does it get better?

    edit: also, is there multiplayer and is it good (triple edit: never mind, I see that there isn't)

    double edit: should I get this or should I get the civ4 complete pack if I have neither

    God I loved playing the original stronghold and crusader. Sucks I lost my disks for both.

    I just played this for a while

    Maybe the campaign starts with a tutorial? I just jumped right into things.

    It's fun and exactly what I'm in the mood for, but I can't justify spending $50 of my Europe money on a video game when I have already bought Vampires this year. It's probably for the best, though; I have a lot to take care of that doesn't involve video games.

    I played the demo and enjoyed it but I can't see myself buying it.

    It sure is a pretty game, though.

    I just leave my browser windows open at all times. To fool you.

    I was watching MST3k and reading about Karl von Muller until a minute ago. Now I'm just thinking about how bad it will be if I ever give in to the urge to play WoW again.

    Oh god, don't do it, man! Think of all the time you spend not running in circles shooting the shit in the server's IRC channel because your raid is so boooooring!

    Seriously, it's ridiculous that I'm still tempted to pick it up after two years. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Yeah I know. I feel like playing but then I remember all the boring shit like dailies, waiting during raids, farming mats and all that shit; and suddenly I feel better.

    No! The campaign is a decent length (its a campaign = demo kind of thing, you know) but the maps and shit are always random for 'continuous mode', and there's apparently going to be a multiplayer aspect added in down the line (not sure how far, though)
