well i just started civ 5 and it applied this latest update, and now it crashes within seconds of loading a game. anyone else having trouble with this? the app starts, i choose single player and load game, the game loads, and after a few seconds everything freezes and it's dead. when i was a programmer, if i'd released a patch 2 days before a holiday weekend i'd have been in big trouble. sigh. i love that steam keeps the aaplication up to date - but i DO NOT LOVE that i can't simply click an "uninstall latest patch" button and carry on playing. given that games are so buggy, surely that would make steam a real powerful resource for players. anyway, looks like all my holiday weekend fun is nerfed, no Civ 5 until the next "fix".
