For the financially challenged, I salute skidrow. (60€ on my bank account and I'm still supposed to eat for a few weeks)

Already made my first mod: Marathon speed now has the same production times as Standard, but research takes a bit longer.

It's half naked people on boats. That's all.
Here in Finland we call that "summer".

Oh god Civ 5 is pure evil... I was sick today and since being stuck at home left me alone with my PC and the shiny Civ5 box there was just so much I could do... and so I fired it up around 10am when I felt better, clicked the first end of turn button und then... well just now I started to feel hungry and so I looked at the watch and... oh my, I lost 7 hours to the game and didn't notice it.


Anyhow I love liberating city states and sponsoring wars by contributing units and money. ^^
Similar for me - except I took the day off as holiday and I had to go and fetch the packet from the Post Office as the letter box in my front door was too small to fit it through when the postman tried delivering it yesterday... Spent 7hrs playing continuously - just a standard-size continents map on Warlord difficulty. So good! Just had a break for L4D and The Wire with my wife when she got home from work and returning to Civ now...

Ok 20 to 12AM. I'm prying myself loose from the game now. ^^
But I must say Civ V has the best unit to date in any Civ game: The Giant Death Robot!

Muhahahahahahahahah....MUHAHAHAHAHAHAH.....MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA *coughs*

Out of his mind.

Remember boys and girls: Take breaks whilst playing.

No luck still. Read pages and pages on forums of bug related issues and no solution worked. The demo still crashes right after double clicking on the icon.

Lots of people seem to have the same problem.

Shame, it was the only game I was really anticipating over the past years.

What operating system are you using? Upon clicking the Demo in Steam two windows should pop up after each other. One where steam asks you whether you want the DX9 version or the DX10/11 and then again a window from civ 5 asking the exact same thing but in reversed order. Could it be that the game tries to launch itself without asking on your PC?

Time literately caught up with this concept. This just doesn't cut the cheese anymore, but should be fun for the fans :)

I wouldn't say it's just for fans. I believe there is a market out there with enough people who don't need games that play as if they are on ecstasy.

@ N24Reporter:

I'm using Windows XP. I only have the option of selecting DX9. An error message appears after I launched the game but the intro keeps on playing if I don't click ok on the error window. It then turns to a black screen after the intro is finished.

I tried updating the video drivers and changing the account name, since many reported that having accentuated characters in it (é, è, ö, ä...) caused the crash.

I don't think time can literally catch up to something :P

The game is fun, save for a few weird things, like early buildings taking a really long time to build even in developed cities, even though the same doesn't hold for wonders. I don't care what your set up is, but a wonder should never take fewer turns to build than a granary.

I've been having some technical difficulties with it also, though. I had to completely reinstall steam after I first downloaded it because immediately after I tried to start it for the first time all my games started to give that "this game is unavailable" error.
