Last week, I impulsively reinstalled Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword on my computer, out of frustration at the writer's block I was experiencing at the time. Forty-eight hours later, I found myself uninstalling Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword, not pleased at going to bed at 3 a.m. I know, I should have known better. But after watching the trailer for the upcoming Civilization V, I have two questions for Sid Meier and Firaxis Games: why, you magnificent bastards, do you see fit to ruin my life with another one of your brilliant and masterful strategy games? Also, how? How do you intend on outdoing Civilization IV, which won at least 9 Game of the Year awards?
