    A few random thoughts about this...

    • The idea of personal public spaces is laughable... 
    • ... and so is the idea of wanting only selected people to comment on what you write and then posting it using a format that encourages random comments.
    • Inhibitions can be a good thing.
    • When your friend is acting like an asshole in public, defending them also publicly might not be the best idea. A private message telling them to simmer down and let it go is the best thing you can do for them

    Happy belated 4th of July y'all and remember, don't drink and tweet.

    I love these threads, so aptly illustrate this concept.

    1. reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine.
      "free market apologetics"
    I went to a Catholic HS and my religion class in grade 11 was called just that, Apologetics :)

    I don't get it, is this game only for the wealthy in real life?  I mean hey if that's what their going for that's fine do your thing, but I haven't seen nearly enough to want to give them 60 for the game.  I think i'm missing something.
    Reading interviews on people who spent tens of thousands of dollars on this game they were mostly middle class or upper middle class.  One guy worked a second job for the money.  Another had some extra bonus money to spend.  Still another guy got together with his fellow employees who pooled their money to buy for their corp.
    The fact that one guy talked to other people about it and they collectively decided to do it is even more disturbing to me than the more understandable single individual doing it quietly behind his spouse/children/parent's back :)

    I just finished the Battletech campaign storyline. This crowdfunded game is a TRIUMPH. Great game, interesting story, very much captures the essence of the Battletech board game and BT universe.  It was clearly made by a very dedicated team of Battletech fans. Great replay value.

    Wow. This is the last thread where I expected to learn something new about what appears to be a great little turn-based strategy game. Haven't played it yet but I love everything I saw in a couple of hours of watching someone else play it.

    You really should take a break from defending SC and talk more about other games you enjoy... I see a bright future for you in these forums if you do :)

    It definitely is embarrassing.

    Some said they enjoyed watching it... some said they find it boring. This is all fine, especially for a game that is so niche.

    And then someone comes along and starts with the typical condescending shit:

    ...."beating da game"
    ... mad rush to end cap
    ... the hyperactive types ...
    .... just to brag for five minutes
    ... onto the next shiny
    ... those with short attention spans.

    The clueless arrogance of one fanboi slinging insults at those who don't share his passion should be embarrassing indeed.
