    I had to Google it. I've never heard that word before. I thought it was a French word for something.

    Well, yes, that's why I linked the wiki article on Korean Wave :)

    I wonder if those streamers who foolishly broke the NDA will suffer any consequences.

    I'm certain more patient and enthusiastic players will stream gameplay post-release, so if you're concerned about gameplay health and such then you can always wait for those.

    At the very least they likely won't receive early access to future content.

    When I lived in Korea in the late 90s, an Arab man offered my mom a rather large number of camels to be his wife and didn't seem terribly concerned about the fact that she was already married. :lol:

    As well they might, because it's delicious. Bread should either be crusty or flat. :drool:

    Having lived in Korea, it's a reference that I rather like, even though I find Korean pop culture kind of on the annoying side...but still better than Japanese pop culture. :p

    The whole mechanic of "if your proposal fails, the opposite happens" is gamey as hell. It may be my least favorite aspect of GS.

    I think it sort of reflects a failure to "read the room".

    You could be hanging out with your friends and the topic of Jerry comes up. So you gossip about how much you dislike Jerry and why. Unfortunately, you didn't realize several of your friends have nice things to say about Jerry and their enthusiasm carries the day.

    Suddenly, your friends are hanging out with Jerry instead of you.

    It's funny that you can sack the city, level its walls, scorch the land, salt the fields and drag the women off into captivity, leaving only the skiiers.

    To hear the lamentation of the ski bunnies: that is what is best in life.

    That and baguette jokes.

    The English version of that confirmed that it means it cannot be WORKED, not that it cannot be pillaged. I don't doubt that an adjacent combat unit will have a pillage option.

    Martial Law has been converted from Military policy to Wildcard, still on the Totalitarianism civic.

    It's Quill18 #9 and I think it's Third Alternative that has been converted to wildcard as it used to be an economic card wilst Martial Law was a military card and there is one military card unlocked by Totalitarianism.

    Yeah, if I saw this coming I'd be tempted to squirt off all my WMDs before they got deleted.

    I'm still enthusiastic. But I'm to the point I want to play, not watch other people play. It's like dying of thirst and having a nice cool class of water in front of you that you can watch, but not drink. I find myself wanting to zoom in on things and get a closer look at things.

    well, I'm off to fall asleep to another youtube stream. I want to nap before the SB later this afternoon anyways (I'm an early morning person usually).

    Except that’s not how politics work IRL... Vetoing the border wall does not immediately result in legalizing all illegal immigration attempts. Failed Bexit vote does not mean EU takes UK back with open arms. Not approving sanctions against Russia does not mean Putin now gets humanitarian help as a punishment to sanction proposers “not reading the room”

    Now this is significant. A lot of you guys rely on this. Though I haven't used it in about a year I believe. I've learned to live without it.

    What's also a concern is that future governments will not be able to use these cards presumably.

    I am impressed that Quill18 built several Neighborhoods and hasn't had Partisans problems.
