Get the Hot Pockets, there's a new Sid Meier's Civilization title out

Civilization isn't the first strategy series in video gaming, but it is probably the most enduring. Since the series' introduction in 1991, countless players have been stormed by barbarians, built the pyramids, and been nuked into oblivion (because of a coding bug) by the Indians. This year, the Firaxis-developed series launched a sequel to both Civilization V and the well-regarded Alpha Centauri in the form of Civilization: Beyond Earth available on OS X, Windows, and Linux. How many hours of your life will this one take?

Hands On: Civilization V -- Brave New World expansion

Add-on gives added depth, choices for endgame

Ever since the first Civilization title shipped on a pair of floppy disks in the early '90s, the series has been a staple on the PC and Macintosh. Late in 2013, Firaxis helmed by Sid Meier pushed out the second major expansion to Civilization V, called Brave New World. With the game itself a few years old and the expansion costing more than the base game itself now does, is the expansion a worthwhile addition to the series, or more of the same?
