Tribal & Punishment: Civilization V Released

Civ V is out today! And so's the intro movie, which I'm able to embed after the jump because I researched Embedding last turn. Alec and I each had similar criticisms of the game, but maybe you'll think it's the best thing since sliced bread. If you've researched sliced bread, anyway. If you haven't, maybe you'll think it's the best thing since, I dunno, that big stone you found that's excellent for caving people's heads in.

What did you research last turn, readers?

It's a weird intro movie, actually. Clearly the product of a few men sat around a table discussing how to get across the concept of a turn-based strategy game in a dramatic trailer.
