So it's a digitally repackaged WoW TCG - ( http://wowtcg.cryptozoic.com/ ) Microtransactions without the thrill of opening the pack - taking your money and giving you less. More sparkle ponies anyone?
I'm sure folks will flock to it for the tchotchkes it opens up in game.
I will publicly offer my credit card number on this comment thread to buy you a GW2 branded tutu IF i get a picture of you and/or Phil in it.
Please wear something underneath the tutu, that's not the purpose of this request.
Fossil fuel industry amounts to big money too, especially in the early game. Having a city in the region dedicated to mining and drilling (and later smelting and refining), buying in with bond issues (get the finance department to enable $100k bonds), and attaching these industries to a road and rail network via a trade depot or trade port can easily rake in hundreds of thousands of Simoleans a day. You can then gift that money to your or your friends' other mean, lean, and green cities in the region, or simply use those resources to build great works sites that benefit everyone.
Yes, there's environmental impact with this approach, but upgrade your locally supplied fossil fuel power plant and water plants with filtration, keep ground polluting industries away from the water table, and be careful of what's downwind of your air polluters, and you'll minimize the impact.
Great guide, btw.

I co-reviewed this game with Gunky, and this bit of misinfo was actually my fault. I did play a chunk of D3, and upon logging into D3 again, you guys are right, the same mechanic is in the Diablo series. My apologies.
What I meant to say is that there's something about D3 that deadens my hand, and whatever doesn't seem to be present in T2. I can play T2 for hours on end, but can only take about 15 minutes of D3 at a shot. I think it might be that the pace of gameplay is slower at comparable difficulty settings, and holding down the mouse button while standing in one place might be a a recipe for numbness. Or it could be slumpy posture or any of a number of things, I don't know. All I can tell you is that this is my experience, and your mileage may well vary.
Anyway, I'll make an edit in the review, and since this isn't a score-changing issue, I hope we can leave it at that. Thanks for your comments!
