    I'm confused. Did he like it or not? I need a score.

    Great review. You've got fantastic understanding of English to write such a charming witty piece...

    I'm lucky to order meals correctly in another language.

    I could write a long post about the game and this review, but I will resort to this:

    Great work, Bubbles. :bro:

    EDIT: I was not aware, German people were capable of such subtlety. Well done. :salute:

    Now this was quite a masterpiece of subtle sarcasm. To bad it was wasted on a review for a shitty sequel posted on an obscure website. Ahem, I can't wait for Bubbles' next review! :salute:

    He's being sarcastic. At least I hope he is.

    Good job on the review, btw.

    how's the German-language voicework (is Blackguard voiced? I never really gave the first a chance)? I really couldn't stand ME's German localization, but The Witcher Enhanced's version of Geralt auf Deutsch was one of my favorite performances in a game, so I dunno what to think of the state of that industry.

    If he was, I apologize. But it didn't look like sarcasm though.

    Yes, but how does it compare to Primordia?

    The part where he says "I need a score" is the clincher.

    I don't understand :( the tone is positive while describing features that seem shit to me even though I barely played the 1st game, sometimes I can tell he's being sarcastic, sometimes I don't know because I don't know the previous game. So I guess the game is shit? I feel like an idiot.

    Surpringly common feedback from those unfamiliar with Bubbles and his posting history. The forthcoming Enhanced Edition of the review will include this helpful guide for new players:

    I can't really imagine any non-obscure website posting a review like this.

    He loves it a lot , almost as much as Elderscroll online .

    Now thats some good review, would read more. DU , share some of your ugly ads incomewith him, cause thats a lot of work to write all of that, brofists arent enough.Better than professionnal reviews to be honest, hard work has to be repaid.
