    As somebody who edits videos often I can attest to this. Cutting 1 frame too early or too short can seriously mess you up. Gotta be super precise.

    I'd point other reasons:
    - Civilization videos started to mention mechanics we're not familiar with.
    - Firaxis is holding press event, so it's likely a lot of gameplay will be revealed on August, 4. It would be good idea to explain more basics before it.

    But whatever the reasons, yes. I expect game mechanics info this week.

    Well, it is also possible that Firaxis want to keep the secret of mechanics until August, so they will release Civ info before instead.

    They did good job so far in explaining the game directly to fans, without the gaming journalist misunderstandings. I don't think they'll break the rule and let journalists present the info.

    Surely tomorrow, the last two weeks have been Tuesdays and Thursdays, if I remember correctly. :)

    Correct. We should get a new video on Tuesday and Thursday if the pattern holds.

    I would presume we'll get a civ + a watered down mechanic video like we've gotten before; after all, the announcement of the Aztecs as a pre-order bonus would seem to imply that they are outside the 18 civs we expected to be announced.

    I'm hoping we get some proper press releases with more meaty information soon. I'm getting a little bored of, "Hey, guys, we unstacked the cities, and leaders have agendas and big personalities! Have we told you we unstacked the cities? Environmental choices! Have some buzz words! What fun!" :sad:

    There seems to be a pattern. One week civs/leaders are revealed, the next gameplay features are disclosed. So I expect this week we'll get more insight into gameplay details.

    If they were to release a video today they would have done that by now, right?

    So next video in ~22.5 h?...

    Videos usually post to YouTube at 10 a.m. Eastern (U.S.) time. That's just shy of 13 hours from the time of this post.

    I do hope it's some new gameplay details this time, but just excited for any potential new vid in general :D

    Actually, we initially had a pattern of one civ video, one uninformative non-civ video; then we got Cleo + Hojo; then we got the mostly uninformative dev/art videos (if you don't count the alleged leader list and the probably accidental Rome leak); then we got Qin + Monty. I would expect we'll be back to the initial schedule of civ + uninformative video, but I'd be delighted if instead we got civ + informative video. ;)

    I would not feel suprised if they release 2 civs this week again.

    It's amazing how are people constantly trying to see some nonexistent pattern everywhere :)

    The only pattern is that we got 2 new videos every week, and it was Tue/Thu last two (week before Japan was same time Friday, even tho it might have been Thu in Japan, I am not sure).

    Anyway, I also hope that we get some mechanic pretty soon, but my money is on new civ today. 4.5 hours to go!
