    About an hour ago, they changed "Take on Me" to "Literally Playable". I know many will be pleased that a win as Kristina no longer references the wrong country.

    @Eagle Pursuit noted this first in another thread, but it's already buried in a discussion on a completely unrelated topic, so I thought it deserved its own thread. :)

    That snark though :lol:

    Still, I'm happy. I was putting Sweden off until last, partly because I was hoping they would change the name of the achievement.

    At first I thought this is an April fool's but it was real

    I wonder about the new name though.

    Is it just a reference to the common hyperbole that the game is "literally unplayable"? Or did someone claim that due to the inaccurate reference of the original achievement and this is a clever response?

    I'm curious, too. I thought it might be a pun on her literary interests.

    I can totally see this being the case. They addressed the people that complain about the nuclear Gandhi joke in the achievements, another 4th wall breaking achievement name won’t be a stretch.

    We can now call the game complete.

    I'm kidding. This was a total non issue with me.

    It's a bit of a weird replacement name (a weak pun), but I like that they replaced the achievement name.

    They didn't fix the wording of Shield of Christianity. You have to be Catholic.

    No. They changed "who's" to "whose".

    The achievement text refers to the Christianity not Catholic. I tried it with Eastern Orthodoxy and failed, as I assumed you just had to have a Christian religion, rather than a specific one.

    Yes. My mistake. The new text still says "Christian". In SteamDB it shows the old and new descriptions side by side and you can see the grammar correction.

    You blew it, Firaxis. You made things right, but yet somehow still managed to blow it at the same time...

    I can't see any of these song suggestions describing Kristina without more controversy, despite the accurate country reference
