Nevermind saw the red fine print well down the page. I'm out. If anyone ever learns out how to hack out steam support I'd be up for some Civ5, the others you can get at used shops cheap still.
What's the problem with Steam? I mean, if you're worried about having to be online all the time, Steam's offline mode received an upgrade recently and you don't have to be online all the time to play stuff as long as you log in before going offline.
