It's actually a Chinese game if you are talking about where it came from.

There seems to be something in the word "Go" that confuses people about its origin no matter what the context (3 scenarios in your post). Next experiment: try first-post with "Go" and see if the universe explodes :)

In future releases, this single person will be able to select a subset of these drones by clicking and dragging the mouse to form a rectangle over the desired units and assign sub-group numbers by pressing ctrl-n (where n is 1 to 9) on the keyboard. The most equipped drone will also be able to pick up ancient scrolls lost in the valleys of Afghanistan which would enhance its armor and features, such as Insightful +3 for improved vision. By the way, the command center is being built within the U.S. base in South Korea.

"...humid climate not very long ago, perhaps just several thousand years ago."

Here's an interesting though of mine: What set backs have we wrought ourselves in the history of mankind, that without them we might have advanced to space age a few thousand years earlier and caught up with Mars when it was still much more habitable?

Midieval dark ages come to mind. Can you think of others? I'm discounting natural phenomena, because we couldn't help it.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
