That is a very nice riposte!


Without going off-topic any further, I have only one thing to add:

Result obtained in the past offer no guarantee for the future....at best a potential indicator. (this is in my opinion one of the gilded guidelines of any true intelligence)

well, from my point of view there's definitely one of you that seems far happier, more positive and generally more pleasant.

on topic - distant worlds is different enough in gameplay and style to warrant owning both. personally i enjoy it more than galactic civilizations II, it's just a lot less polished.

don't listen to me though, anything positive i say is paid for by matrix.

edit: that post seemed far too serious, apologies. : P

I say good things about DW, and I don't recieve a cent. Where do I go to get money from them?

That's true only of good things. For negativity, you only need one counter-example. If you want to say "space shuttles are safe", I only need to cite one example of one blowing up to refute this. If I say "space shuttles are unsafe", citing an example of one that didn't blow up doesn't undermine my point, because my point is negative, and therefore requires only a single example to be true.

That's the sort of thing a shill would say. If you weren't a shill, you'd stop doing that.

you're thinking in black and white, that's not how things work.

1 shuttle out of 1 thousand crashing does not necessarily mean that whole line of shuttles needs to be declared unsafe. however, if 100 of them crashes, then you have a different story. you make judgements based on degrees and severity, both on negative AND positive feedback. without assuming that every positive person is a paid for part of a conspiracy.

in distant world terms, if i read these forums and there is one crash complaint (probably by sigh), but 10 positive comments then i may buy the game. however, if there was 10 crash complaints (probably all still sigh) and only 1 positive comment, then i might not.

more importantly, perhaps you are only joking and i am reading into this far too much. |o/
