    Haha, oh wow. My ancestors were nobility from one side and the jews from another side. Now of course you don't. Plebs always speak one, maybe two languages tops.

    Of the other reviews I've seen, have to admit this made me laugh (only heard of this site when Fargo started retweeting them shortly after the "Tier One" antics). The staff are happy to admit they've never played PST:

    http://fextralife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=15907387
    But they also feel sorry for Codexers with their nostalgia goggles and comparisons to those ancient games like PST :shittydog::

    Surely an "avid fan" could spare a few hours to at least try PST?

    In all fairness, it is a very frustrating way to game.

    I mean, it's that kind of devotion to the original games that gets these spiritual succesors funded. But yeah, some people just can't let go, the poor miserable fucks, how are they ever going to enjoy anything, ever, is beyond me.

    I don't know why moderators think they need to close threads with people attacking the codex. If anything those are the best threads.

    Pretty messed up that Sea would try to bully gamers by silencing dissenting opinion, maybe somebody should open up another thread.

    Well, his reasoning was that other communities are not to be insulted on Numenera's steam forum. And I guess that every thread connected to Codex's review would've turned into that, judging by the climate on their steam forums ("racists from Codex are trying to kill InXile" etc, etc).
    Though, another active thread whose OP directly accused RPG Codex of review bombing and where every other comment blames Codex for negative user reviews is still open, so eh.

    A thread where people accuse each other of joining nazi party or whatever would have been nuked and people get ding dong bannu in an instant on any official forum.

    You guys sometimes forget that freedom to post your real opinion no matter how retarded it is is a luxury provided by Codex, freedom of speech is not a normal thing in the actual internet.

    Oh I know. Deadspin (for calling out their bullshit) and ProFootballTalk (for making a joke that in retrospect was probably inappropriate for that site) have both shadow banned me. But its still amusing that they close the treads ripping on the codex and no one here cares even a little bit.

    RPGDOT isn't the culprit. People bashing rpgs for being rpgs and not some console shit with lite rpg elements. These people, like the community of rpgwatch today (though less true than that of rpgcodex which is just full blown mega retard console hipsters) just bash the shit out of real rpgs relentlessly doing real and significant damage to real rpg developers. What lesson does this teach developers? Make shitty rpg like hipster shit or some other type of safe game that is far easier to make than real rpgs.

    It is impossible to have a conversation with retards or people who do not even like the genre. The only people that seem to be able to string a coherent sentence together are some how drama mad sycophants who are far too filled with rage to have an actual debate with.

    Like everything on this site it will devolve into a retard fight unless the topic is an Asian game. Asian games are universally loved for being childish and sometimes including extremely rpg lite elements.

    Also, I hope you do not think I would write Roqua on my account and then state I am not him. I am not the retard here, everyone else in the thread is. This statement is far more insulting to me than any of the other mean and horrible things people have said about me in this thread. Please, give me an ounce of credit for not being the usual codex level of dumb where I could see one of these long legged monkeys doing that.

    Lastly, the moderators wrote it obviously, and they have no proof whatsoever and is why they have not replied for me asking for proof. The think I am Roqua. I don't mind being thought of as Roqua since he is absolutely gorgeous, has a giant cock, has completely impeccable taste in games, and has a luminously brilliant mind likened to Einstein and Tesla. Roqua is a God amongst you monkeys and I appreciate being confused for him. It is extremely flattering.
