England. For those confused as to why some British people refuse to consider themselves European despite obvious similarities (genetics, language, geography, culture, EU, etc) it's because in some respects the UK is distinctly different from the rest of Europe and much more so than most 'other' European countries are from each other. These include but are not limited to a different political system (two party first past the post vs multi-party proportional representation), legal system (common law vs civic law) and immigration system (border controls vs citizen card internal controls). On top of that the UK has historically been more focussed, or at least successful, internationally than in Europe so shares those differences from Europe with many international countries. When European countries create EU legislation they tend to do so without consideration or perhaps recognition of these differences therefore increasing the barrier of entry for Britain. Whereas it may be a logical continuation for continental countries, in many cases it requires a large overhaul in the UK. Combine that with the fact that Britain has historically been more successful than most if not all European countries with good reason to believe its ways are as good if not better than the ones continentals use and you can understand the opposition.

 

I like and have studied in depth the middle ages; at that time we were only a minor/middling power on the european stage. However from the middle to late 18th century to the early 20th century we did shape the world as we all know it today to a large extent. My mind just focuses around the middle ages :p Also i like talking about things like this, nothing personal :) Well i suppose I've done too much already to derail this thread, sorry.

 

hmm quoted the wrong text, oh well you know what I'm referring to. :)

It was a song quote. Josh Sawyer has specifically stated that he knows that PE's fan-base is approximately half European.

 

Mother****, people.

 

Sorry then, I didn't recognize the song quote, nor have I read/heard that Josh has said this. No need to get worked up about it, I didn't think my post should have come across as more than a casual comment, not a heartfelt angry rant.

 

EDIT: I searched for the song with this lyrics, and got: City of New Orleans, written by Steve Goodman. I played the song on my Wimp (Think Spotify), and have never heard it before, then again, I don't really like most country music.

Eh, it was less directed at you and more... well, there's a lot of people complaining about that "Good Morning America" for some reason.

 

City of New Orleans is a well-know, oft-covered song folk song. Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Arlo Guthrie... some really good versions of it, though I prefer the original Steve Goodman. Guess that's just the one I grew up hearing.

Saskatchewan, Canada.

 

And for those curious, Josh Sawyer has said that about half of the money raised came from Europe.

That's pretty weak considering two thirds of forum members are European.

Consider also international shipping. Likely a lot of Europeans chose digital rewards and not a boxed copy.

Just remember to wrap it in plastic before licking commences. Even if it came in a metal tin. Rust, y'know.

I'm from Oslo. Every so often I'm reminded that we're apparently the capital of some country called Norway.

I live in a small town near Zurich, Switzerland. :)

Which is in Europe. And Switzerland is NOT Sweden, my American friends.

Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

Aww damn, and all this time I've been putting Swiss cheese on Swedish meatballs. :)

 

I am from San Diego, CA, U.S., although I worked today in Irvine, CA near the Spectrum ... not too far away from Obsidian, I think. It's awesome to know I live only a few tens of miles from where my favorite upcoming game is being made. Woot!
