Funny -- you're reviewing a game about American politics, yet you spell "defence" like a silly Brit!

You might want to read this review over one more time and check for typos. I spotted a couple, though I'm too lazy to go back and find them again, making me kind of useless, but eh, whatever. Solid review in any case, and I commend you for getting through it without making any of your usual "HAY AMERICA IS STUPID BECAUSE I AM BRITISH LOOK HOW FUNNY I AM HAR HAR" comments.

Thanks. I actually wanted to try and avoid playing the haughty Englishman on this one. I don't know what's wrong with me -- maybe I'm ill.

It'll get a stupedious editing come the morning. These errors exist because it's silly o'clock here so I'm keen not to make them worse.

Haha. Yeah; this review was entertaining. nd I'm also glad you reserved your 'lol America sux' jokes for other things.

I think this is my favorite line Texas needs their firearms, Utah needs their religion, New Jersey needs… I don’t know what New Jersey needs. More Kevin Smith movies? You can’t offer them that.

Man, you hang around us too much. XD

Afraid not. I've not eaten a hot dog in months.

I've given the review a good editing. Hopefully, I've chased a lot of the issues out.

XD Dammit! I knew that looked odd. And it turned my own jab against me. Bah. See what happens? I'm turning into you! Stop corrupting me! =O

Just admit it. Half your reviews would be riddled with typos if I didn't edit them for you, and you know it. >_>

Um, wasn't I the one who pointed out the typos in this review? I'm just sayin'.

You pointed them out generally. But I've made it a tradition to go through and point them out specifically for EmP ever since... like... February I think.

Which reminds me, I still need to do that Mah Jong one. Because I read it, but didn't send him the edits because I wasn't marking them down as I went through. There were tons there, though.

I'm just sayin'???? That's TOTALLY my line. Suskie you freakin' crook. And Emp, I hope you're not having WQ and company edit the "U's" right out of our properly spelled words like COLOUR.

Haha. No worries. I've learned to ignore Brit spellings in my editing, though occasionally I'll put up a slang term or other spelling that I didn't know before, and then feel promptly stupid for doing so, especially when I have to look it up on urbandictionary or m-w.com because EmP doesn't always have the curtesy to tell me. lol

I've been using "I'm just sayin'" since I was a fetus.

I recently said "I'm just saying" in the Alpha sign-ups, therefore am now going to clain that it's been my copywritten catchprase since 1842 (the year of OD's birth).

I'm the only one older than OD. And so when Suskie was a fetus, I was already having my third mid-life crisis. I still have the Model-T convertible to show for it. Sorry guys.

Thanks, Wolfqueen. My self-esteem has been boosted greatly by that. And here I was thinking that other than the whole "associated with EmP" thing, you were okay. Well, we'll see who gets blacklisted from my RotWs and who doesn't from now on and then see who's laughing. One hint. The answer is ME!!!!

Haha. I'm sorry. >_> If it makes you feel any better, I was just kidding.

Well, I'm still holding the "associated with EmP" thing against you, no matter what.

You'd probably hold that against me even if I hadn't joked anything about you. >_> Nothing I can do about that, really.
