    Yesterday evening I got some wierd un-anounced automatic DLS updates thrue steam. Apearantly it wasnt just me since I checked with few others. I think Firaxis pushed them just before the patch to sync everything up. Get rdy for some major hogbash tonight on multiplayer.

    My Steam client updated itself yesterday, but no Civ V update yet.

    Now that is a .sig file made of win. Especially since you can imagine Nimoy saying it.

    I thought the history showed patches typically on Thursdays?

    'girding loins' my thoughts exactly, someone asked me to 'put my best foot forward' the other day - made me smile. Oh and I gather,'final pass of testing' is usually a five minute procedure...

    Well, it's good, solid everyday advice if you ask me . . .

    But yeah, even before the new announcement above I would have guessed it would have to come before the DLC. It's a pattern at this point.

    I'm a bit thick, but that sounds like a biblical reference.

    Well, I'm glad to hear it's coming today or tomorrow because A) I'm interested in seeing how it affects the AI and B) it means the next patch is even sooner, which sounds like it'll have some really good additions.

    This might explain the fact that steam just downloaded 500mb worth of Civ 5 material for no apparent reason.

    I had a mod installed and I'm assuming that's why not only has it downloaded a much larger file, but is now completely corrupt and requires me to redownload the entire game.
