Try reading what I actually posted before you fire off the knee-jerk torpedoes, buddy.
I did, which is why you got that reaction. Sorry man, but you come off incredibly hostile and derogatory against Brad's previous work and what he's doing now.
GalCiv 2 had - excuse me - the worst story in recent videogame history.
'here is some more fanfiction around King Argonaut'
tiny bits of someone else's 10,000 year fantasy story.
If you're legitimately asking if the sandbox mode will have options to either disable or alter content, that's great. Coming in and slamming Brad's previous work and calling his upcoming work, without having even seen it, "fan fiction" is hostile and insulting. So, I treated you as you seemed inclined to treat others, with hostility and denigration.
And you continue to do so with statements like "'this week on Stardock's silly fantasy story' "
If being a hostile ass isn't your goal, then my apologies and let's start over. Your point then is actually asking, politely, that sandbox mode not include a pre-made story line. Yes? Perhaps you could leave it at that and not continue to harp on this axe you have to grind?
