For those who aren’t aware, I am a huge fan of Sid Meier’s Civilization series. I swear, if it weren’t for Civ IV, I probably would have invested an extra 50-75 hours into my master’s thesis. Oh well, who needs education when you’ve got Civilization? Now you can get the best of Sid Meier for cheap, and the proceeds go to a good cause.
Over at the Humble Bundle, it’s all Sid Meier. For the low, low price of whatever you’re willing to pay, you can pick up:
- Sid Meier’s Civilization III Complete Edition
- Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Complete Edition
- Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol
- Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol: Pacific Skies
- Sid Meier’s Railroads!
What makes me particularly happy is that Civilization IV is on Mac, so you all can be like me and play your life away with the fantastic Civ IV complete edition. If, however, you’re willing to fork out $8 (do it soon before our currency depreciates even more), you can get Sid Meier’s Civilization V, plus its expansion DLC, Gods and Kings. For $15 (half the normal price on Steam), you can get Civilization V: Brave New World – you can read my review to see if it’s worth your money.
I know we all love an indie Humble Bundle, but this one is really worth getting if you’re a fan of civilization building games. There are some differences between Civ IV and Civ V, although both iterations will happily steal hours of your life away. I still need to try Civ V multiplayer – who feels like taking over the world with me?
