    Epic store is better for PC gaming.

    The most interesting thread in the Codex is the screenshots one.

    Gothic 2 would have been better if it had been made in RPGMaker.

    Unironically agree with this. Also the "What game are you wasting time on?" thread.

    Loving the witty banter in this season’s Game of Thrones. Books definitely needed more quick quips. Hopefully George takes note and really crams the last book with characters constantly saying cute things to each other.
    “You gonna leave me to die again if I get hurt?”
    “Probably”
    Hahaha priceless.

    The only problem with indie games that go for retro looks like 8-Bit graphics are that the developers focus too much on nostalgia and ignore art design or any kind of design leaving to bland and easy to forget games and worlds.

    Otherwise, there is nothing wrong with still using 8-Bit or other retro-style graphics, it's just that developers forget to do their own thing a lot of the time.

    If you take 20 monkeys and you force them to code a RPG then in 10 years they will produce something like AoD while in 1000 years they will produce something like Fallout 1 :)

    Which would still be sooner than any of the current lot of devs require to come up with an equivalent.

    Or maybe they'll just come up with this :

    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    But if they make their project a Codex one and get their own sub-forum, they'll get unlimited praise for it ...

    Baldurs Gate 1 and especially 2 are the most overrated videogames ever made.

    FIFA/PES are the best RPGs ever made.
    • You can roll your stats.
    • You can play any build.
    • You can make your own choices, and that makes you win/lose matches and have a successful/unsuccessful career.
    • Has choice & consequence.
    • And most important of all, there's no failed build because even with the shittiest build you can still play the game to completion in Career Mode, just in a low ranked club.
    But because they are action RPGs the Codex hates them.

    Rated fake news because IIRC the basketball games have more stats.

    Builds > Stats

    There are many, many positions you can play in a football game. And because games tend to have very few goals, your build makes that much of a difference.

    If Codex would be the prestigious forum it claims to be, "Pillars of Eternity" series would be considered greatest achivement in cRPG genre.

    Bullshit, I had teams made from from scratch and watched them play. No action required. Pure RPG.

    Since AI will never be as good as human brain, playing single-player games makes you a casual.
