Thanks for the link Matt. There was a great podcast that PA did about a year ago on how everything about Catan would have to change for Gabe (strict videogamer) to like it. I think they proposed that wood be switched to licorice, and Wool be changed to pure caramel.
haha in response to the lost cities announcement on 1up.com I just ran across this comment
"Uh............. I think i will pass. Why do they keep bringing out crap when there is old classics that beg to be revived like 'KILLER INSTINCT 1 & 2' "
There is a good point lurking behind this post, though. For example, I do not understand why it's not already possible to download any Nintendo game ever made directly to one's Wii console. They're slowly releasing some things, but it feels to me like everything should just be there. I guess I'm also just assuming that the copyright/IP issues aren't in the way, but come on.
