Go ahead and resume the remarks that I'm an ivory-tower snob, but I do believe that the new Eurogamer interview marks the first time I heard somebody refer to a penis as a "nob." Assuming that is what they were talking about. I could see calling a clitoris that, but if your penis looks like a nob I feel very sorry for you. (Come to think of it, I doubt anybody's going to call me an ivory-tower snob after I posted things like this, though they might have other angry things to say.)
For that matter, I'm a little dissapointed that they are so adamant about censoring that sort of thing. Of course I wouldn't risk losing my subscription by filling an online environment with giant phalluses, but I do hope there are more private options. For example, I'd be really mad if I made a bar and it got censored out. I hope fan-hosted servers that rely on passwords to keep out people they don't want make certain demographics feel more welcome.
I also hope, come to the property system, that each player doesn't get only a large patch of land separate from everybody else's large patch of land. What I think would be cool is if there were urban maps where multiple players owned land right next to--and clear view of--each other, and they could choose either to buy lots of land and build a wide building, minimal land but lots of bricks so they could build a skyscraper, or both so they could build something huge. Of course if we couldn't, I'd still build a city all by myself, but it would feel empty with many of the buildings being unnocupied and unworked.
