    You can get the base game for $12 for trying Humble Bundle's monthly subscription thing. Though part of me thinks I should just keep waiting until a couple expansions come out and they bundle them together.

    Some of the new mechanics sound interesting in this one. They are adding a Dark Ages mechanic whereas you have an era score and if yours is too low you enter a Dark Age, with the risk reward benefit of being more likely to enter a Golden Age if you do well during a Dark Age.

    They are adding a city loyalty mechanic that sort of reminds me of the way culture worked in Civ 4. Cities on the borders of your empire are susceptible to influence from other civs or from neglect. I really liked that mechanic so it's cool to see it return in some form.

    They are adding governors. I understand this mechanic the least so far. Probably meant to play into the new loyalty mechanic.

    Finally they are adding emergencies. When major events happen in the world, players can be given joint quests to deal with them.

    wow that's a very successful band!



    kind of funny how we've left such a legacy (so many pipe bands across the globe)

    They used to perform all the time on campus, and I enjoyed going to listen. I graduated a short time before their first world championship streak (they played for the grad ceremonies too), but they were still very, very good.



    The university is named after the Scottish explorer that explored much of British Columbia, so it made sense to start a pipe band there. Our sports teams are even named the Clan (formerly Clansmen), which gets us all kinds of confused comments from Americans (we play in the NCAA Divison II, not the Canadian version, U Sports). Meet our mascot, McFogg the Dog:

    I just took London with Robert the Bruce. There should be some sort of achievement for that.
