    Along the utterly praising review of Shadowrun:Waifufall, it's a sign of major decline I'm afraid.

    at least shadowrun waifufall doesn't have skill checks that reveal the purpose of a pry bar to me but maybe this is some of that muh dekonstrukshunizm that i've heard so much about

    nice try but that was a successful check that happened after picking an option saying 'Take the pry bar'

    i'm not surprised nobody noticed that because people are by and large dumb

    and who knows, because of that mayhap they need to have it spelled out verbatim what a pry bar does, so they treat it as amazung gaemplayz

    Don't excuse your authism with us being dumb mate. Also you do know that you play as character with full on amnesia,that doesn't even know the concept of money?! The game doesn't explains that shit to you but to the character,that is why it is filled with all those dialogues with different aspects. Maybe you are getting dumb with old age roxor,you liked deadfire,then you went on and liked druid stone....what is next,liking outer worlds?

    Yes, but why play ELEX when you can play Gothic 2

    You still haven't answered the fundamental question Darth Turd

    i honestly think it's a joke. Perception does this all the time: some important dialogue, and if your Perception is very high, then just like it states in description, it notices unnecessary things and states obvious things: dialogue dialogue dialogue buzz is buzzing outside 66 degrees to the left dialogue
    Encyclopedia does the same, but really, it's a thing about any skill taken to very high - it does absurdy things.

    If those are the criteria then take the Pale Pill. Paledriver is so twisted by the Warp Pale that she can engage in full virtual reality escapism without even needing the requisite hardware.

    BTW, the difference is that a Fallout "intelligence" check is meant to give you smart and helpful things all of the time by passing increasingly high intelligence checks

    Disco Elysium skills are more like one-dimensional autistic NPCs where Perception just wants to Perceive things no matter how profound or moronically obvious and won't STFU

    Every player in the universe of course realised this the moment they left the first room and Electrochemistry went OMG SMOKE CIGS PLEASE OH GOD with no regard for whether it is a good idea

    Or they realised it in the character creation screen when the game told you literally this is how skills work

    But not Darth Roxor, the great heroe of the Codex, for he walks on edges where few dare to tread

    that's a lot of rationalisation to excuse this game's intellectual dishonesty

    if the chain of events was: dialogue option "1. Take the bent piece of metal" -> "[Perception] This is a pry bar!", i wouldn't bat an eye

    but when it's: "1. Take the pry bar" -> "[Perception] This is a pry bar!", then my eye certainly starts twitching

    For someone who forgives ELEX its flaws you are really focusing on this thing.

    "people like it so it must be shit" is a lot more of that.
