    I connect every morning thinking "Obviously this bullshit is over now" only to be mistaken each time.

    Could this be the first review thread to eventually get retardo'd ? :M

    I think you are confusing "context" with "overwhelming paranoia and delusions" my good man.

    i can't believe some complain about combat oriented balance little things. To care about balance stuff now in this game is like complaining to whoever caused the big bang that there's dirt in the spot on the earth where in a million years his house will lie.

    and personally i will not care even then, i.e. i didn't play Arcanum for combat.

    Roguey's not interested: none of the idiots arguing here are likely to be an alt for Josh Sawyer.

    I've read the words but I find it difficult to comprehend. Apparently everyone involved here is an unreliable narrator, though it wouldn't surprise me if Portalwhateverium was letting a big money donor get away with bad behavior since he's paying for the privilege.

    i guess so.

    but that's how it always ends. The world gets to play current gen stuff, and i'm down the pit playing scraps, when's my turn?

    I don't know if she has, but apparently I did. She thought someone I had never spoken to was my source.

    You probably should have stayed for away from this game.

    Some of these....individuals will take your review as a threat and start to finds ways to damage you if you persist in any negative talk about the game.

    Wait until this guy starts talking about where you live and if you knew what is good for you then you would watch what you post.

    This games community is at a whole nother level of crazy.

    Why? You're living the dream, you've caused some butthurt to some randos outside the Codex, this is probably the first incident of this sort since the RPG Watch pissing matches and the Bethesda shit-off.

    Retardo'd? It should be promoted on Codex' Twitter feed if it hasn't been yet. Someone, give this man a medal.

    I don't need to say anything more, do I? :)

    The comments at Eurogamer have gone exactly as I said the community behaves.

    You've got "Vladamir" here once more telling blatantly obviously lies, and trying to scream about "personal abuse" to censor anyone criticising his ability to rip people off in Shroud. Anyone got any doubts left how dishonest he is?

    And of course you've got my stalker turn up on 2 different accounts ("Arygon", and "CobraMkIII", named like my user name after Elite) and stay awake for more than 24 hours, desperately and increasingly incoherently trying to gaslight me the instant I post; because part of his pyschosis is he needs people to know he's trying to harm them. If Eurogamer had a Block button, he'd resort to PMing me the links on new accounts, or even to people I know so they'd pass it on. As it is, he's dropping as many hints as he can to his past behaviour to try and make clear it's him, whilst trying to gaslight me in the eyes of others by claiming I'm imagining it. Notice he's bringing up an obsession with someone (The Couch Yeti) he tried in October last year to get people to harass yet again. No idea what that poor guy did to attract his attention...

    But just to remind all the people here what makes it so serious; he DOES have contact details for anyone on my personal email account, and likely real life details of an ex girlfriend, and THATS who he keeps bringing sexual harassment references back up for.

    Which is why I won't stop pushing to locate, and prosecute him. And why I will never, ever care what people who know nothing say about me ;)

    Which is why 3 different police forces backed my case... oh wait, no it wasn't, that's why you're talking out of your behind, my good man!

    Serious question, when did you stop bothering wanting to learn, or self improve, or just develop any sort of empathy for anyone else, and decide being a proud know-nothing edgelord was the path in life you were going to take? And where exactly do you think it's going to take you?

    Because the hilarious thing is, I'm not exaggerating about my own accomplishments, or even about my own case with regards to Shroud. That's partly in fact why my stalker is so enraged by me; I'm sat here watching idiots lecture me about the fact the paperwork that's right here on my desk supposedly doesn't exist... and for what? Because the best you can hope to do is try and upset someone? That's it? That's the level of personal quality that anything above that counts as autism?!

    But yes, do all continue to treat it as a nice bit of forum drama where you all think you're defining what happened! Go ahead! Why do you think I'm still here? You're tools of my purpose of leaving enough links across the net to reach viral point, at which point people who aren't so proudly stunted will look at the actual facts... ;)

    Once more, I challenge you as I did everyone else to point out WHERE I've been unreliable.

    Bearing in mind because it's both an active criminal and civil case, I've not been publishing everything I know. Nor anything which would compromise the chain of evidence proving he's using private sources he would have no legitimate access too. Nor that would allow him to furher cause distress for the people he's targeting.

    And that this forum has removed some of the links when I did publish already public information. Hard to look reliable when people are actively editing your claims, eh?

    But I'd gladly debate anyone who actually, honestly wants to understand. No fucker here apparently wants too though. Not to worry, greater legal minds than can be found here are already involved. It'll be decided there, not here.

    Oh, and before I forget, I am old enough to remember UseNet; I wrote the Amiga part of the Alt.Faq.Elite guide on it in fact. Even then, I was using the internet for something more than being a drama whore and obsessing about apparently someone from 20 years ago. ;)

    I know it's funny, but this has to stop. I can almost feel the hysteria like an invisible wall when I scroll the comments.


    Even if you are being stalked, your stalker has won just by the sheer amount of single minded paranoia he has instilled.

    Cut your internet for a month and get out, it's really not important.

    Totally agree. As I sit here on the sidelines - it amazes me as to how someone can get so wrapped up into something.

    It makes for a great read but that's about it.
