    I seem to have a completely different approach to the release - early night followed by day off work, so will probably go to bed around 10 and wake up at about 6 or 7. Game is preloaded and final unlock will take seconds with my download speed to can be playing whilst eating my breakfast :) Fortunately I'm prepared having watched a few lets plays so know where to start. Otherwise it's all joy of discovery! :D

    Great plan! That's my plan too! But what to you mean f"inal unlock will take seconds"? Is there another component to download? If so, what is the average size?

    My understanding is that the unlock is the final piece of the game that becomes available on the release, so you need to download that (at least that's what happened when I got Skyrim and Civ 5 originally). Could be different though, I rarely pre-order and await unlock for games now.

    I just read the Gamespot review and have a question.

    Is it true that capturing cities is much easier, and that this can lead to ping-ponging of ownership for a few turns?

    The gamespot reviewer only finished 1 single game of Civ V, despite putting more than 500 hours into it. I wouldn't trust his opinion.

    Likely, if you don't clear the surrounding area of enemy units first.

    The only crticism I share so far is that this is the Civ game with the least impressive wonders. But maybe this was neccessary due to the balance of the tech web.

    2.5 hours, but I think I need sleep :(

    Stupid midnight releases, I'll play if I can get out of bed, or wait till the morning.

    I mean, stupid human organic bodies, WTB supremacy upgrades to eradicate the need to sleep.

    I feel like every hour between now and then is a waste. I have to work in the morning but I think I'm going to be waiting right at midnight to unlock and at least start a game for like an hour so I can get a taste. I don't think I'd be able to sleep anyways knowing it's unlocked and I'm not at least setting up. I'm spending all my time leading up to that debating who to play as and what I want to bring. I was thinking Brasilia but I might change it up. So many decisions!
