    Yes. That's exactly it; and I've always only ever been a troll too -- and I'm mentally unstable.

    You're exactly correct, Grunker.

    Did I leave anything out, or is there anything else you'd like to share about your stellar taste?

    I enjoyed the review, don't know why the reviewer is exploding into butthurt so suddenly after releasing it. It almost makes it a bad review now because his true colors have been revealed.

    I liked the review. This game's premise sounds very original. Would I even go so far as to dare the term authentic?

    ITT ironyuri delivers the ultimate blow against the Codex's widespread praise of E:C: by praising it so much that everyone criticises it to re-establish their contrarian identity.

    :obviously:

    Well nobody can blame you to be overenthusiast and a bit consensual ,rpgwatch style , when writing the review . The last time we had a tactical rpg hybrid , that was jagged alliance, while the game is not flawless the qualities vastly outweigh the flaws. No need to be too edgy anyway since some cant even understand the 2/10 joke.

    Did you plan this performance art in advance as a part of the review or is this an improvisation on your parts? Will all future reviews have such additional content? I need to know.

    There was this ability which allowed one of the classes to shield another follower, both sharing half the damage received by either. This was available right off the bat IIRC. There is something similar in the final release but it's not the same and you need to pick it when you level up.

    At any rate, travel map part of the game is a poor experience. I had hoped it would improve before release but alas. What you should have done is a two stage FOW (black-out unexplored area, gray-out explored but out of range area to hide active dynamic objects like animal, chests etc.) and give us full freedom for panning the camera. And don't bitch about limitations of Unity, it's been done before (needed to mention this because I saw you do that at your own forum) and the mini-map doesn't quite cut it :

    ironyuri - to your rescue: I only said "thank you" for the effort of doing a review. If it is really good or bad I can only tell after playing the game myself.

    So don't commit Seppuku because a Watcher said something good about you ... ;)

    Do you work at shitComposer, right? Do you know why the Steam version of Conquistador was blocked on spanish-speaking countries?

    Due to a retail-deal. It will unlock in these territories (and in Italy) in the future after the Box-release (and more used digital portals in these regions. Yes. They have local ones). Luckily steam-sales in these territories are... let's say under 3% of total sales for steam-games.

    The thread about the review of the game is better than the game, and since the game is already quite good that's saying something

    It was very Professional and Polite.

    Overall, a nice read.

    It just would have been better with a few of the dark twists the Codex is known for.

    And stop listening to Grunker.

    He's basically DraQ.

    Of all the threads to generate massive butthurt and drama.... it's like site feedback. With native Americans.

    Still in the game, albeit in a slightly different form. It's the Soldier's veteran ability (Guard), where the units around him gets their defence raised to match the defence of the soldier.

    Yes, I know that and it's not the same at all. Saying that it is, is pure demagoguery. When you change something out of shape and form, it ceases to be what it was. Yes, it's similar in function but it's still mighty different. The former was available at recruit level while you have to level up not once but twice to get the similar ability now and they are still different enough to co-exist.

    You can't twist facts to your liking, sorry.
