    I think that the usage of wiki links is the most solid proof that your game story has failed to grasp any attention. Designers that think there is too much boring information that they need to remind the player where they are and who they are dealing with, I think that is the definition of wiki links in recent games.

    Recently I watched The Lord of The Rings trylogy with my girlfriend, I never had to explain the difference between Mordor and Isengard.

    The codex: Bitches about game journalism injecting their "own politics into reviews".
    Also the codex: Inject its own right wing politics into their reviews now.

    Also what if the main character is female? :philosoraptor: Does the review score go up because lesbians are hot and tolerated by right wings? :philosoraptor:

    You're just getting 30+ according to scientific research

    Or, you now, just common forum attrition, happens to most sooner or later, and you've been on here long enough

    Still, while Disco Elysium looks interesting, I don't think it'll be the savior of RPGs. If its good, it will be a slightly offbeat RPG mostly ignored by the masses and liked to a degree on places like the Codex

    Well, that's good to hear, Infinitron.

    I bought it deluxe with all DLC because it was ridiculously cheap, something like 25 bucks, but I'm waiting for all the retarded balance tweaks and all DLC to come out before I even start it, so yeah, some day!
