    Oh, I am never, EVER, coming back to read the comments on this one. I’m afraid of what I’ll find.

    Brilliant, can’t wait to see MartinNr5′s response.

      No worries, I don’t read these kind of news (this seems to be a boring game, that’s why).

      The only reason I spent 10 minutes hunting this post down was because my brother told me that someone mentioned me on RPS.

      Now, I could spend the rest of the evening posting a witty reply to Kierons post or come up with an even more in depth explanation to why I hold the writers of RPS in high regard and thus react when they slip up.

      But I won’t do any of that.

      Instead I’ll just play some Alien Swarm knowing that I, somwhow, made a difference.

      “What does that mean, in-famous?”
      “Oh, Dusty. In-famous is when you’re MORE than famous.”

      ;)

    amazing attention to detail.

    Poland’s flag is upside-down.

    • Heliocentric says:

      That actually symbolic. It means the king of poland is high as a kite.

    • Sonic Goo says:

      Remember, you can play any nation you like. Poland was conquered by Indonesia.

    • Bhazor says:

      More importantly Nazis were never as big as that screenshot would have you believe.

    • Burc says:

      Hey, you weren’t there man.

    Shouldn’t the article header image be a LOLcat or something?

    One of the best ways to keep all comments off-topic. Only surpassed by Quinns “What did you have for lunch?” earlier today.

    • Jad says:

      One of my favorite comment threads ever was on Fark (yeah, I know) back when Britney Spears was having her very public breakdown and that’s all the media would talk about for days. The Fark headline was something like “Britney shaves her head. So, what’s your favorite bacon-related recipe?” A thousand posts followed with people joyfully talking about bacon and shouting down anyone who actually tried to mention Britney as being off-topic.

      Bacon.

      Ah, bacon. It’s a meat, but also a condiment. It stands on its own as a food, but enhances the flavour of an astonishing number of savoury dishes. Not just savoury; chocolate covered bacon can be delicious, if both the bacon and the chocolate are good.

    Whoa that was weird;
    I was listening to Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds, then I was looking for the War of the Worlds strategy game, then I saw this headline and the vaguely strategy-looking screenshot, and now I am disappoint.

    The series follows the adventures of 14-year-old Jimmy, a happy-go-lucky teen who makes it his mission to find fun everywhere he goes. This is a challenge because Jimmy lives in Miseryville, the unhappiest town around, run by the megalomaniacal Lucius Heinous the Seventh. Miseryville has one main industry: Misery Inc., purveyors of putrid products guaranteed to cause grief; and they do not come with a money back guarantee

    making a mmmo strategy that lets you completely reinvent history and civilisation from any point in time (including future) is one of my long term plans.
