    I... I know you.

    You're that girl in my high-school class. Who was always in the computer classroom, writing something. I think I caught a glimpse of your browser once -- and you had Terra Arcanum open, but I didn't dare to say anything about it.

    Do you still remember? That one autumn evening, when the Counter Strike jocks were not there and it was just you and me, I asked you what you were typing. And you were silent for a moment before answering in a resolute small voice, "slash fan fiction."

    And I smiled and said "cool."

    It was like a huge weight was lifted from your shoulders. That was probably the first time you looked me in the eye.

    Gods... I know I promised to call you once I got out of the army, I know I did. And if I'd known you were a virgin I'd been more gentle, but I was so full of machismo and testosterone then. You know how the time flies when you are young.

    But you have to understand. You see - I didn't know what slash fiction was then.

    The reactivity in this game is subtle and amazing, and let's be clear that this kind of stuff (and lack thereof) is exactly the kind of thing I usually pick up on and bitch incessantly about.

    I wrote FUCKY-FUCKY in a form two days ago, hours upon hours of gametime, and boom, just came back to haunt me.

    Yeah, there wasn't a lot of content on the island.

    Anyway, after the ending I take everything back, Disco Elysium isn't a visual novel.




































    It's a visual short story.

    Didn't one of the Kurvitzs (Raoul, I think?) also speak on now-executive-producer Kaur Kender's behalf during his child pornography trial?

    Sounded big, so I just googled it. It was about a book Kender wrote, not actual child pornography.

    Yeah, that's what the trial was about, to determine whether the work in question was literature or child pornography, according to Estonian law. Kender published a work called Untitled 12 online in 2014. It consists of detailed descriptions of the anal/oral/vaginal rape, genital mutilation (clitoridectomy etc.), sexual torture, vivisection and murder of children from infant age (under 3), to 16 years of age. The "titular" character is 12 years old. The defense argued that the work wasnt pornographic mainly because of the "literary" language used, citing as examples the use of the word "esophagus" instead of "mouth" when describing a little girl vomiting from oral rape, and on the assertion that "nobody could be erotically stimulated by reading this". The court ruled the work to be literature, not pornography, and Kender was acquited.

    Rating was 2d6 + your English skill / 12 btw.

    That a NYT-level French newspaper reviewed it – and so favourably! – is quite something, whether you agree or not.

    There are no flawless RPGs. Yes, Disco Disco is not perfect, but you can also nitpick about PS:T's combat, or shitty last part, or Fallout's gameplay or whatever. To me, DE definitely belongs in the top tier of RPGs, unlike any other iso RPG post early 2000s.

    It’s just so weird that this indie RPG is being reviewed in major establishment newspapers like Le Monde and The Washington Post, or even a British tabloid like The Daily Mirror. Like, I didn’t even know WaPo reviewed video games.

    What's so weird about this? I can't believe so many of you still don't get it.

    Ringard is both. Dated and tacky. Obsotacky.

    In any case it’s not complimentary of all other RPGs (except Fallout, PS:T, and Arcanum, which got a gracious nod each).

    I know someone involved with it. As much as I dislike Kender, the hit on him was somewhat orchestrated for other motives. Him writing that garbage was just a convenient tool.

    How can you dislike Kender? He’s a big teddy bear.

    at ending of day 2 right now and i am already very tired of the game. the beginning was pretty cool, first scenes in the hotel room and stuff.... "emotional". most of the other stuff just isn't interesting for me, i just don't care about this world or its people. so much dialogue about some lore nonsense, in games like POE people used to trash this overload. i am glad i didn't pay full price but bought a steam key for 15 bucks on ebay.
