It's selling for about 12-15 bucks atm.
 
Sounds like a good deal, but not sure I'm gonna get it.. I don't do too well in RTS games =(

Its not an RTS. Its turn based strategy

@byterunner: Whoops, my bad.  I think I probably suck at turn based ones even more haha =(

i bought it on release day for 5% off and it's been worth it, but then again this is the 5th civ game i've played and i've loved all of them.

My buddy has been trying to get me to buy this game since release. I figure now is a good time, haha.

Any DLC that I should get before the sale is done?

I decided "what the hell, why not?" and picked it up for $12.50 
I have to say, was quite pleasantly surprised.  I've had Civ IV for a while now and was just never able to get into it but I got sucked into V so easily.  Maybe it's due to the much easier to understand interface or the easier on the eyes visuals, but it's turned me around on the series

That's a great deal.

I picked it up and decided I'd try it out for a few minutes, and then get started on my homework. 
 
Many hours later I realized I still had to start my homework! What they say is true- You don't notice the time flying by while you play.

My buddy has had civ 3 or 4 for a long time now and has kept saying how good it is and how i should get in to it. I decided to pick it up this weekend and i imedently just jumped into a game and was able to pick it up fast, after a 7 hour game i lost in last place (but one of the 3/6 surviving nations) by a time loss.  also for begginers: GET NUKES FIRST but never use them, i was getting my ass beat from everyone once i used a nuke

i haven't bought any of the dlc because i figure that's a lot of money for what you get -- was it on sale too?

I think you can do without the DLC. At least until the next sale.
