Cool. Then maybe the single player is for me then. I was getting a grunty, selfish vibe from the posts -- I see the social tendencies to hoard stuff and struggle with the mine/me vs. the collective might be a fun-breaker with the multiplayer - unless the whole goal was to make diamond penises everywhere, then I can see it. Otherwise maybe it's too much FUCK U, MAN. MY COAL. Too much like real life...I have enough trouble liking people as is than to argue with them in a game about torch ownership.
maybe you should take a break from it before you start
