    Said a guy whose highest ambition is slaying giants in Knights of the Chalice ;)

    Go back to your power fantasies*, lad.

    * I have nothing against the very concept of power fantasies. I also indulge in them. But one should not limit oneself to consuming pulp only. Sometimes it's good to try something different, more ambitious and thought-provoking.

    Evrart's chair is very memorable in this department. Healing items won't let you die there but only a high Pain Threshold will help to save a tiniest part of your dignity.

    Never been so hilariously humiliated in video game and I really hope that I won't need to relive this experience on some job interview IRL, ever.

    I died the first time I used that chair.
    Second time around, instead of stacking up on healing items, I tried to be clever and tell Evrart I'd stand.
    But he insisted I sit down.
    I had no choice but to use the chair.
    Evrart you fucker.

    I read it. A bit typical puffed up article about the "humble origins" and "underdog success" but between the cliches there is interesting stuff. The moral for me is that you get good at your craft frist, then you go developing interactive products using it - whether writng, art or something else.

    I didn't know about Rostov being an expert on videogame history, and I don't get it why is Estonia "loser-ville" now?

    It's loser-ville and winner-ville. Estonia is one of the most right-wing countries in Europe, economically and otherwise. If you're among the winners, you get to enjoy low tax rates, relatively low prices, and first-world living standards. If you're not, you're SOL.

    Robert & co were SOL for a long time. Along with a lot of others.

    The article is so full of self-deprecation and references to drinking...it's no wonder that Mr. Du Bois feels so realistic.

    And I made your mums a mixtape.

    Run her a nice hot bath. Don't forget to add a drop of shampoo. Light some beeswax candles and put this on for her:

    The takeaway is that Kasparov was in the final stretch for his Master’s and still managed to finish PoE multiple times..

    :rpgcodex:




    But really, great job and very informative video.

    In this thread:

    1. People insulting each other for over last 15 pages. I liked the spoiler thread better.
    2. Right-wingers laugh at DE not selling. Unlike PS:T and Troika games. Oh wait...
    3. Left-wingers defending Marxism, to the irony of DE's description: "it failed so many times, but will surely work this time" (Big Communist Builder).

    Disco Elysium is better than Witcher 3.

    In achieving what?
    Disco Elysium failed its basic premise.
    Witcher 3 is good at being a stupid ARPG.

    Witcher 3 is the embodiment of decline. Your analogy that they aimed low is accurate, but why should that be applauded? It is a garbage game that dumbed down virtually every mechanic that makes Witcher unique, it is generic milquetoast AAA trite that primarily did well because it was boosted by console players raised on Skyrim, Fallout 3 and Ubisoft open world game design.

    Going back to your analogy, it is better to aim high and miss than aim low and hit the target, especially when the target is a pile of shit. Simple as.
