    That alone is reason for me to wait a little longer before diving into this. The game obviously needs some balance tweaks and I assume they'll get around to that eventually.

    Quite frankly it sounds you missed Fallout Nevada at the very least.

    I enjoyed this review so much that to save time I'll just keep re-reading it instead of playing the game.

    ATOM is a whole new game, so it depends if you consider using F2 engine/assets/setting in FN as a flaw or an aesthetic choice IMO.

    Very nice review! I only read first paragraph but I am laready very impressed and have lots of thoughts.
    I didn't think of Atom as a work influenced by nekrorealism movement untill I read the first paragraph. It's a fascinating idea, I need to dwell on it more before I continue reading.
    Very nice language too, a joy to read. Please PM me the original text in russian (or whichever slavic language it was written in).

    Oh but if you do, you get to find out that it was written by something you can only describe as a russian equivalent of a redditor. That's right. If reddit was Russian, that cunt would be all over it. He'd love it. He'd fit right in, he'd rubbing shoulders with the giants of modern videogame writing like Anthony Burch, because he seems to genuinely believe that a semi-coherent sentence consisting entirely of le ebin references strung together with semicolons is what the good writing is all about.
    This game is a meme, and bataille is even more of a meme for buying into it. Rip.

    Where the fuck is bataille so he can get his deserved brofists instead of Zionotron?



    Roxor's reviews are pathetic, under-grad snark in comparison!(EDIT: To be fair, Rox is on top of things with detailed musings on the mechanic side, though for ATOM, like Fallout, whining about the ease of combat would miss the point).

    the less you know about "russian culture" the better, since you'll be spared of all the cringey winks and nudges

    Well, as I said, petrosyanstvo either triggers people hard, or they laugh with the author at his own low-brow humor. Not sure where I stand, I have to play the game first, also, I certainly do not qualify as I did not read most of the postmodernist literature (sans Solzhenyzin, who also can be considered as a postmodernist as his work is not grounded in reality, lel)

    This was a great read. Really insightful, haven't seen other reviews highlight the Russian cultural references in such detail. I hope this game gets a GOG release.
