    In reference to the different pricing in the world on steam towards the end of the podcast, I note that there are several articles saying some games are region locked. I don't know if Take Two is in the habit of doing this.

    It's standard Steam practice. Here, in Russia, nearly all games cost less in dollars, but are locked to Russia and CIS. INHO, it's much better than language-lock policy of Origin - a lot of games are unplayable in localization.

    We already know that there will be MP in CivVI, but nothing specific has been disclosed yet. Given the percentage of Civ MP vs. SP players, I expect MP details will be later coming than that for other mechanics.

    As for awesomeness, well, remember that everything is awesome... :mischief:

    Fun episode as ever - nice to hear everyone excited

    @DanQ, how did you resist calling it "Mother is the necessity of invention" though? ;) Funniest gaff in a while :lol:

    Glad you enjoyed the listen. :)

    What are you referring to by "it"? I'm not recalling the context.

    Nice show. Very much enjoyed it. You guys have plenty of material over the next 5 months and likely 2-3 years after release....so I guess you can't retire DanQ and company.

    The episode title! I believe you were discussing the dynamic tech tree when you said the phrase; it passed everyone by but I got a chuckle out of it :)

    Ah yes, I do recall saying that now that you cite the context.

    As for it not being the episode title, I still prefer what I chose as I was going for something more serious and purposeful given the focus. As it happens, I expect you found the other phrase that much more humorous as there was no 'preview' of it in the title. :mischief::D

    We're on indefinite contract with a minimum 10% yearly raise, so the conclusion is that we'll do polycast forever and ever.

    ...

    <3.

    Still not sure if I get old and have a kid take over or something or whether I just go full cyborg mode 40 years from now though. I'm thinking the latter, then I can blast the whipper snappers at civ 15 or whatever we're on by then.

    If your kid takes over I demand him or her to be called TheMiniInTeam.

    Im sure danq will agree for a 10% yearly raise over a 0$ salary.

    Seems a little Sailor Moon-esque to me, but what do I know. Far be it from me to set their online handles.

    Except lame ones are banned of course. If I see something like xxxHeadShotxxx (arguably permissible if he/she explains its intention as a troll account) or genericname553 there might have to be some...adjustments...made.

    A couple months ago my 11 year old nephew texted me that he was going to invade people in the dark souls 1 forest with a ninja flipping spear build, so proud <3.

    It was "collectively bargained" and we're holding him to it.

    Such is the power of "air quotes"... :D Now, about your benefits... ;)

    Ryika, Acken, hope you enjoyed the listen on this episode as well.

    ...now that... was an... awkward... response.
    I feel like I'm missing some hidden message. :think:
