    Codex 2014 Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    I took part in this one during the beta six months ago, so my words are based on that.

    This one is a weird mix of gameplay elements. Around 40 players are placed together on a server and have Action Points (so to say) to perform various activities, such as craft, move about the hexagonal map, fight monsters, explore, or build and upgrade the town's defenses. So teamwork and co-ordination are VERY important.

    Here's the catch: You can only have one character active at a time, and you're stuck with him until he dies. What's worse, the character's starting gear and traits (which can be positive and negative) can only be rolled a limited number of times during character creation.

    And during the beta there were no tools or mechanics to allow you to choose or decide which server you end up in.

    This inevitably led to 80% of the players in a server just abandoning their character on Day 1, and essentially serving as dead weight for the rest of the players who actually put in some effort.

    I would take a Long, Hard Look at this one before buying it.

    The developers are continuously updating it and are responding to the reports in steam forums, so I can suppose that the biggest errors from 6 months ago are already fixed or being fixed. I think I'll give it a try.

    Alpha protocol did some cool stuff, too bad it was let down by crappy combat and level-design/console-itis plus lots of bugs.
    I enjoyed it anyway... Not sure I'd want to put up with its issues a second time, though.

    Flawed Gem with heavy emphasis on the *flawed* -part. Know what you're getting into.

    The first game had 75% after 3 months I think. It's Square Enix, what can I say?

    No, this is different. This is a blatant admission to SotTR flopping hard.
