Word on the street is that you can unlock it now if you know what to do.
Please give me a google maps direction to this street.
In return I will start a church in your name, possibly as a mod. Church of Snoochems - Requires Electronics - Increases global happiness by 5 to demonstrate the happiness of people on computers creating their own civilizations with nested Church of Snoochems ad infinitum.
EB just called to say I could pick the game up this arvo. They were of the view that it unlocks at midnight, or 11 hours from now, whereas Steam advises that the game unlocks in 20 hours or so.
Does anyone have anything more definite about when civ will be playable?
Hmmm mine says:All steam says is 'not unlocked' so won't let me install from disc. I can do the preload but I'm frankly a bit hesitant to download 5gig of game data when I have better things to spend my limit on.
The blurb inside steam says it unlocks at 5pm PST, which would be 10am Sydney time (why 10am, ffs), frankly this is just ridiculous.
Install. But it stopped saying that the game hasn't been released yet so it cancelled the install.
I have the demo installed too, so I'm not even sure if it installed the actual full game or not.
