yes, I must confess that's why I always shorten it to shades, sinse "sod" is indeed a sware word in England, and especially in the midlands.

it's always a litle weerd to me to see a game referd to as something my mum says if she spills her tea ;D.


Then again, this is just another words issue. if for instance in castaways JEremy were to include firewood counted as "faggots of wood" which would be completely correct according to the english meaning of the word, (there is that section in lotr when Boromir advises the group to all cut and carry faggots in order that they have some fuel in the high pass of Karadhras), I'd imagine a lot of americans would be rather confused as well.

Beware the Grue!

This kind of reminds me of Shades of Doom. In many cases I've seen people shorten it to simply SOD, not knowing that it can be viewed as a cuss word in certain parts of the world, not the USA.

I mean, such a meaning...
But if you don't life in the USA, you don't know such things...
So, this whole mess could maybe never been so bad...
Shame really.
Allthough the new mota game surely will be at least the same in quality,
maybe even better.
