If you own part of this, the price is lower.

Posting since I didn't find it listed in the Steam Sale topic.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

pretty misleading with the 92% off since this goes for under $20 all the time

yeah, I agree that it seems misleading.
alot of stuff on steam is advertised with what seems to be exaggerated percentage cuts. it's just the percent off of the release price.

Its actually the percentage off of buying all of the items individually at around $145, which is rather dumb considering that this is supposed to be the bundled edition. This is really only a good deal if you already own a significant portion of the game and just want to pick up some remaining DLC.

So, where is there a better deal, for someone that doesn't own any of this game and want the complete game?

Perhaps I should reword myself, when I said that this wasn't a good deal I more meant in comparison to what its been listed as. The complete edition usually goes for around $12.50, $0.23 comparison saving listed as supposedly 92% off seems rather poor to me. I believe I've seen it cheaper at around $10, but I'm not sure. If you want the Complete Edition, this isn't a bad deal for it, but it certainly isn't "WOW AMAZING!!!" that it makes itself out to be.

yeah, this is a good price to get the "complete edition". I'm not sure if I want to get it though.

Civ 3 & 4, AI frustrates me to no end. For those who have played Civ 5 would I be just as frustrated?

What about the AI frustrates you? If it's diplomacy -- declarations of war and general bullying without provocation -- then you probably will be just as frustrated. The areas where Civ V really innovates are:
  • No stacks of doom
  • Religion and culture as weapons and win conditions
  • The mechanic of vassal city-states
There also is the change from squares to hexes, but that's not a big chance (IMHO). Hopefully Civ VI will make strides with enemy AI when it comes to diplomacy, but that remains to be seen.

If I want a fairly easy to learn strategy game that can be played online with a friends over the course of months (just making moves occasionally over weeks/months, like if we were playing chess) would this be a good choice?
