Yeah:

Spoiler How to decode :
Just replace every letter with the letter 6 letters forwards. A=G, B=H, C=I, etc.

Well, I'll autograph your copy of Civilization, too, if you come to Maryland.

I don't work for Firaxis, though. Hmm, I wonder if they're hiring?

X-BOX was the "Rosetta stone" for me-that's all I am saying ;).

RVIR 360 was sort of a dead giveaway...(And JM3 only marginally better)

YES! The message says Civilization 5 is coming for PC, PS3 and X-box next year! :D

Hmmm, would prefer it to be a pure PC-title..........

I didn't get that message. I think it was talking about Revolutions.

These were both my key. "RVIR" was obviously "XBOX", and "CN'M" was obviously "It's" since nothing else fit. Then I noticed the pattern and the rest was easy.

You fail at decoding, cause it never mentions Civ 5. :p
