I see, anyone who disagrees with you is a mindless fanboy. BTW, stack movement is in the game. MP has been polled on in this forum several times and isn't a factor for the majority of players polled, and thus probably wasn't a "standard feature" in the eyes of Firaxis. Finally, the XP doesn't just have MP, it includes other features as well, some of which have already been released inside free patches. Firaxis has released numerous patches in response to customers requests and complaints within the past year. I don't see that as a bad thing as I found the game quite playable at release. I see it as refreshingly good compared to many companies today. And what is so wrong with a company looking to make money on their efforts? Without that attitude we would not have any games in the first place, and a bunch of talented people would be writing code for fortune 500 companies instead. It costs money to produce this stuff, and I for one don't begrudge paying a reasonable price and margin for that work that has provided me with hundreds of hours of fun.
