    My memory is too iffy to remember if that was me, but I think no? But it's definitely a sentiment I agree with;- you'll want to have a non-spoilery guide handy to not get overly frustrated with "Yes I /know/ I need sodding Lithium, now where do I find it?"

    Cthulhu Saves the World, OTOH, is a humorous, fun take on classic top-down JRPGs: I enjoyed it, much more than Breath of Death, which shares the general humor, but it's too grindy and less developed.
    Yes, I was probably a little hasty when writing out my post. I meant, nothing else interesting that I didn't already own :)

    As mentioned, I've been planning to add Ownership and Wishlist indicators to bundle posts; ideally I'd go with a dedicated browser extension, but since I'm learning as I go, I'd rather start small, with a userscript, with other Onward March specific enhancements possibly coming in the future.

    In the meanwhile, I'd appreciate if you could take a dozen seconds of your time to answer this question. Thanks!

    That would probably actually prompt me to look at the Steam group now and again.

    Done. I'm in the "Cool, but I'd rather not tamper with it"-camp though. I would enjoy having the feature, but I'm not too fond of browser extensions.
    Want to add me on Steam? Steam name: Mr. G3rt

    Are the Expansions/DLC for Civ4 worth it?

    I have a copy of vanilla civ4 on gamersgate or somewhere like that, and it seems almost impossible to get DLC for that version... so a steam version for $1 that includes the Expansions/DLC might be worth it.

    I seem to remember that there was a cool fantasy mod for it that required one of the expansions...

    Every modern Civ (including 4) is massively improved by its expansions. BTS in particular is outstanding.

    Civ 4 Col is a stand alone, but with TAC mod it's an all time classic (even without it's a wonderful game). It's especially good in multi-player because like any good space game a menace looms over you all, they just happen to wear crowns and charge you tax.

    I forgot Col was in that bundle but yeah, it's brilliant stand-alone game.

    THE AUTHENTIC COLONIZATION!
    It's essentially a 'everything is terrible' mod in the tradition of The Binding of Issac. Your town you start with are garbage, you desperately flog base resources to your monarch so you can buy up the specialists to turn your warren of barren huts into a civilization. Oh, and then the royal expeditionary force shows up, hope you didn't piss off the natives, or if you managed befriending them I hope you sold them lots of guns.

    While I agree in general, I don't agree about Beyond The Sword. It's an expansion which clashes severely with the design philosophy of the core game. Which is not surprising, since it was designed by Jon Shafer, who did Civ 5, and not Soren Johnson. The upkeep for corporations in particular is completely out of whack with the "no upkeep for improvements" that was a core part of Civ 4's approach to balance that was a departure from Civ 1-3. Corporations routinely increase the upkeep cost of a city by a factor of 10, and it's possible to find yourself economically crippled because the corporation you founded is eating you alive.

    It's the only Civ expansion that I uninstalled.
