    So, it's T-minus 30 minutes before the game launches on October 21st wherever you are. What are you doing? How have you prepared? And, what will you do after it launches?

    As far as I know, and according to Amazon, it will launch at midnight PST, so that means 3 a.m. Bolivia time. 30 minutes before and up to launch time, I will probably be awake working or forcing myself to do some work while I check Steam every 5 minutes or/and checking the latest news and anticipation talk here. I have pre-ordered, so that's preparation step 1; definitely have some munchies around and make sure I have an easier Friday work wise (crossing fingers). I work independently and live on my own, so that helps. After, who knows? The one-more-turn addictive quality of Civ games might just be too much to overcome. I should have automatic voice and email replies in case I just crash out of exhaustion or just don't mind the world that day. It is possible, I guess. :D

    I dunno, does amazon send you your steam keys before you get the box, if you pre-ordered it?

    I'll be somewhere off Malaysia, with no internet, surrounded by Chinamen.

    Well, hopefully the first patch will release before I get home.

    Kiss the wife and kids because you won't be seeing them much for a while.

    You know, a title like this one can easily be misunderstood... Hope is a powerful thing. ;)

    I will be staring at the clock the entire time, begging for it to go faster..! :aargh::help: A jar of Nutella (along with bread-cookies to dip in it) will be sitting on my desk, as well as several bottles of my favorite energy drink, to sustain me through the dark ages that lie ahead... And the light ages that will follow, and the dark ages after them, etc... Sleep is for the weak, who have yet to adopt stiiknafulism and bow to the Wise Eternal One, God of Maniacal Laughing Fits and (coincidentally) Holiest Atomic Fire... :mwaha::bump::cooool:

    You could say the game's anticipated, ahem, quite so, yes. :yup:

    I got the same problem had a 50 euro gift card for amazon so I bought it there physical as that was 10 cheaper than digital very strange. Usually I prefer to buy digital as you only get a box shipped with a steam key inside anyway.

    I'm sorry. I thought of it after I posted it and then I couldn't figure out how to explain myself better, but I guess hope needs to be exercised more. :D

    Sadly, I'll probably be sleeping, plenty of stuff to do Friday morning. I'll be pretty pumped for my daughter's naptime on Friday though. :D

    I am terrible for dates so when I read this post I thought Civ VI was about to be released in 30 minutes. I almost crapped my pants but then I realized it was Oct 8th.
