    Which means 3pm GMT (and if you can't convert that to your own time zone you should learn how to).

    In theory, they have two first looks and a 'devs play the scenario'. If they do it like the Persia/Macedon one, they'll be a first look tomorrow and Wednesday, a let's play Thursday, and the DLC will come next Tuesday.

    Yes, if the release is on the 17th and not the 19th or 24th.

    Definitely, a sample size of one is not a great indicator ;)

    If it's coming on the 19th, I don't know how they'd break it up. They could do all the first looks next week or do one this week and one next week.

    If you intend to have a large navy, an industrial district on the coast so you can build the Venetian Arsenal wonder.

    Likewise, I ruled the 12th out of my prediction, mostly because I didn't think they would cram 2 First Looks, a Livestream, and release into a Monday (today) through Thursday, but they could; it just doesn't seem likely.

    By coast, I meant the actual water tile. Adjacent to the city center. So maybe you can only build one or two. So the neighborhood would have decent bonuses. I picture Singapore as being unable to build settlers.

    edit: but a unique water improvement would be awesome too.

    If its just one civ with two leaders, its not impossible that there will only be one slightly longer first look covering both of them. We may only have seen Pericles and Gorgo announced separately because it was supposed to be a "surprise" reveal that alternate leaders were in the game, but the surprise had already been ruined.

    Another instance of too little data. Whatever case this ends up being, it will be educational for me and allow for better predictions in the future, provided we see additional DLC.

    I hope they have the same narrator. I love her voice.

    I will marry her someday.

    edit: is everyone hammering on my samplesize comment? I was only suggesting we could get something out of left field. I worship at the altar of EP like most everyone else.

    edit 2: lights candles, leaves cookie.

    She's one of the associate producers, and from what I've seen from her Twitter feed, I think she is dating another member of the Firaxis team.

    To be honest, I'm just basing my hunch off the back of the fact that if they hadn't spent most of the Gorgo video explaining the concept of alternate leaders, it would have been about 30 seconds long and the narration would have consisted of "kill guys to to get culture". The alternate leader would need to have a pretty complex ability that required lots of explanation to justify their own video.

    That's a reasonable deduction. I hadn't considered it before.

    Isn't it sad that this thread, about wishes and wants, is more interesting than actually playing the game?

    She is Sarah Darney. She also appeared in Gamescom in Germany last year. [stalker mode on!]

    As of the last patch, yes sadly. I've derived more enjoyment from this than playing. I attribute the shoddy quality of the last patch to testing it concurrently with the XCOM expansion. They barely had an update intensity spike prior to release. As we've seen last week, the update intensity is spiking like we saw in DLC01 through 03, which is good. And the devs have indicated they are in full QA mode on Twitter. It gives me hope that this patch will be better quality.

    Just wanted to pop in and say I agree, the narrator's voice for the First Look videos is perfect.
