See here.

Good to see the wait will be very minimal this time around. The wait for beyond the sword was awful.

I hardly had dared to hope for a true expansion for Civ V after all these piecemeal DLCs. Good to see that options like religion and espionage are coming back. And: Steampunk scenario. Yay!

I have to say, I'm surprisingly happy about 'Gods and Kings.' And, I'm excited about religion returning to the series. The new features are appealing to me. I'm looking forward to this.

Maybe someone could do a micro review of it, as soon as it is out. I've stayed away from V, due to all the lackluster reviews.

And now, time for some Legend of Zelda.

I don't think it's "lackluster." Honestly, I feel it's every bit an equal to Civ4. The biggest beef has been 1UPT and AI strategic path-finding as a result; however, I recall SoD being fairly unpopular. I enjoy it, in spite of the graphics. ;)

One Jas Kao replied (on aforementioned site) to the possibility of SteamPlay support;

SteamPlay  will be supported. Though if you get it, make sure to buy and play it  on your Mac to support Aspyr so they can continue to bring you Mac  games!

How SteamPlay works is Aspyr doesn't really get compensated unless  you buy and play on a Mac so if you want to support Aspyr, hold out  until the expansion is launched on Mac.


Oh, and good news! Thanks for posting!
