    If he wasn't THE reason he had to be ONE of them as I recall him incessantly insulting Gaider.

    Oh poor Gaider. If your ego can be "harassed" out of a place like this, you have zero spine. And hair.

    It will be interesting to see what comes out of this, if anything at all.

    Lately, the lack of words has not been the major problem in the recent crpgs that have connection to the Torment franchise.

    Eh, the problem with TTON was less that it was too wordy and more that there was barely any gameplay (and what gameplay it did have was tedious). It would have been far better if they’d just kept the uninspiring RTwP system from the original. The near total lack of combat really messed up the pacing. 35 hours of reading would’ve been a lot more tolerable if it had been interspersed with at least 10 hours of fighting. But I doubt Gaider/BeamDog (GaiDog?) will have that problem.

    Seeing as you're such a tough guy, what's your real name, occupation, and place of work? We know Gaider's.

    In the cited Gamebanshee article there is no mention of a Codex so we should point our fingers at those losers.
    It's how original sources get lost. One person in a chain of copying the news forgets to mention the source and then the next person in a chain also does not mention it. Or maybe it is a deliberate tactic to pretend to be the sources and take Internet traffic?

    The GameBanshee article preceded ours. It's how I found the documentary episode in the first place. But they didn't spot (or didn't think it was worth mentioning) the Planescape stuff.

    Hey, tbf, I didn't say the problem was that TTON was verbose, I just said that the problem with it was not that it had too few words, in particular.

    TTON was a huge underdeliver and I'm not a fan of Beamdog's editions, but IF they manage to make a pure (anitbulshit), well thought, visionary and unique piece of art and entertainment that is not a parasite nor a shadow off original Planescape: Torment , then I'll accept that. I want to believe.

    Properly shit games are almost as rare as good games. Bad games are common but rarely you run into descent to undermountain or oblivion. This thing has the makings of fucking bad game.

    Take the "lead writer" Gaider for example. Must be one spinchter clenching script on this game. He isnt a fucking writer. Just because some C++ or Excel warrior decides hes a fantasy writer doesnt make him one. And run he did.

    The programmers and artists are bottom-barrel modders who were never hired by real studios. If you look at all the "enhancing" they have done, its mostly just fucking up the UI. Finally you have the shitty political motivations stuck in. The end boss is probably Trump.

    Well, as shitty as much of ELEX's gameplay may be, it's still better than Witcher's.

    Imagine if the game turns out to be the best game since lions eating Christians? Since Intel and AMD came together, I don't suppose Hell can't freeze over.
