I guess to me it's not that big a deal. None of us knew what she looked like anyway. They could have picked ron perlman's face and it would have been hard to argue. and more expensive. This was a huge game to begin with.
We all have our ways of thinking.
Another thing on Civ 5, I thought it was like a strategy game that lasts an hour or so per game, I had no idea it would take me 4 days to beat one game. Is it normally that long? 500 turns doesn't sound like a lot but I played a good 3-4 hours a day and it took over half a week to finish.
I like it like that, so that when you grow your empire and stuff you actually get to have fun using it/advancing it, rather than moving through the game in an hour or two, but damn I had no idea it was that long or maybe I just took longer to move than normal since it was my first game.
