    One thing I've learned from watching these videos is that germans play the game very, very, very slowly. That Writing Bull guy is on video 13 and still hasn't researched Iron Working. It's like watching paint dry. Literally.

    He in particular spends a lot of time talking.

    Firaxis could've just given Giskler press access and we'd see screen-caps of "almost" everything already without him having to chug through 13 videos of Writing Bull.

    So Germans play slowly, Canadians are blind and oblivious (and make me cringe at their placements and priorities), Frenchmen are Baguettes, Brits keep breaking the NDA and the Irish are surprisingly the best (but won't show you IZs).

    EDIT: And the Poles go just abusing the game and inadvertently complaining about it.

    Winning is three times as useful as building your own special laser.

    But you can build both lasers too and have the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.

    Marbozir was cool but he sounds like a text to speech translator which is rather distracting :crazyeye:

    14 videos of Writing Bull now and I think he only showed 2-3 turns. That x3 iron desert area looked fun to settle, but it'd take another 20 videos to get there with his new war.

    Oh, I've just updated my post about Poles referring to him, I wasn't quite sure if he was Polish so I took a bit longer trying to figure it out. He's... ok, watchable, but he does complain about the game lots.

    I think the cool part is that you can actively inhibit all those reductions

    Does crusty bread have some connotation that i'm unaware of?

    It's a stereotype that French people are always carrying around a long loaf of bread.

    Just may take on the new science victory:

    All those souls trying to escape their environmentally unsound home for the stars are being dragged down by their backwards neighbors because they wanted "first dibs" or higher record sales.

    That will teach me not to read the whole thread.

    If anything these streams have made me less enthusiastic about GS. They all seem to be rushing through without enjoying the new mechanics or new civ. And I haven't see any multi player streaming.

    That's very culturally specific. Hallyu is a direct reference to K-Pop; it's the Korean word for the Korean Wave, which not only consists of K-Pop, but also Korean dramas and/or anything culturally related to Korea. To be fair though Wisselbanken was the name of the Dutch Central Bank in the 16th (?) or 17th century.

    I know this because the Philippines hit by the hallyu far earlier than other parts of the word. The waves hit our shores as early as 2000. In three years, most of the country was underwater. In ten years it was completely submerged.

    I didn't know he was Polish. He sounded more Russian than Polish. Most Poles I am familiar with don't speak like that when they speak English.
