oh sid meier, you magnificent bastard

Oh, and lest I forget: The opening menu music for Civilization 4 is very beautiful, in that inspirational chanting Circle of Life kind of way. Watching the menu animation under the music is also beautiful. And the lyrics? It's the Lord's Prayer in Swahili.

The game itself, of course, is another great reason to stay up all night. Even if it does need one little patch or five. Oh, and Leonard Nimoy narrates the Civilopedia and opening narration!

"Leonard Nimoy?!" I said out loud. "Why'd they get him?"

"Probably because he grew up a few blocks from here," Leonard chuckled in my ear, and all was well.

(the sad part is that Leonard Nimoy's West End neighborhood, as well as his little Omni Theater spiel, no longer exist.)
