    UR is like a high quality plate of eggs with only half a slice of burnt bacon; or the bacon with only a hint of egg. It’s very good for what it is, but I can’t escape the feeling that it’s missing something very important. AoD is more like a buffet breakfast: you can have all eggs or all bacon or a balanced mix of both. Unfortunately, the buffet has run very low on exploration, which is obviously the toast.

    But eggs plus bacon is ultimately more filling than eggs plus toast, at least for me. Either way, your breakfast is not quite complete.

    Yeah, I totally have it in for you. No doubt a search would reveal how much I've trash-talked or even mentioned you in the past year (probably never). But yeah, somehow I just magically picked your name out of a hat here to tell lies about you.

    Anyway, by cross-referencing your username with mine, anyone can see your fifty-paragraph rants about Underrail in which you've quoted my posts or tagged me. I've rated a few of them Retarded to refresh your memory. Highlights are when you (for example) whine that the game requires a walkthrough to complete. Funny, I managed to complete DC without flying into a rage and without someone holding my dick. :lol:

    Maybe, but that'd be hard to know for sure because when I really love a game, I don't act like a completely obsessed dipshit.

    I'm still waiting on the quote where I've given you "a stern lecture for posting in the Underrail thread too much and not enough in the AoD thread". Obviously you won't find any because you're talking out of your ass which is common for retards.

    Says a guy who was disqualified from a GOTY poll because he wanted UR to win :D. And a guy who was defending the worst location in UR before even playing it. And a blind beta-tester who only praised UR instead of giving it a fair critique which is one of the reasons why DC is as bad as it is.

    Instead of talking out of your ass again and again quote my posts to prove your point (oh, right, you can't because there aren't any quotes you could use).

    That's not why I was disqualified. That's your agenda showing.

    This is a lie:

    Now, as then, you've chosen to be retarded and pretend that I was responding only to your DC post, when in fact I was responding to your criticisms of the rest of the game, and hadn't read or responded to your criticisms of DC until after I'd finished DC.

    Once I did finish DC, I knew that your criticisms of DC were also gay and retarded, but until then I hadn't posted a word about them.

    This is also a lie:

    Hey, you catch on fast.

    We're actually in the sea of shit, though. It's more like two crews in shit submarines that are also mostly flooded with shit.

    I'd differ from your analogy on the filling part, eggs plus bacon (AoD) is definetly more tasty but without the bread of exploration it doesn't fill you up. Underrail's toast plus burnt bacon definetly fills you up, while the taste is only acceptable.

    But the important thing is if we are using a sub-optimal breakfast analogy for AoD and Underrail, then all the other recent RPGs (PoE, TTON etc.) are just different flavors of turd. You know, like if you're on a boat stranded in the ocean without any food supplies then you'll eventually have to eat your own turd and drink your own piss to survive.

    Tyranny wasn't your own turd though, it was your dog's turd.

    As much fun as it was to make the Age of Decadence one, I really like the Underrail one. It has that 90s vibe where you would get a CD-ROM full of demos and trailers, and they barely said anything but made you spend years imagining how the game was... :)

    They should just make a new in-between expansion where your character starts in Deep Caverns with 8 arms, each holding a mini-gun, and obliterates that whole <censored> level.

    Deep Caverns and the pre-nerf Depot A were a fucking paradise IF you had stealth and a way to do plenty of damage(guns,psi). I still remember when i had to abandon my balanced Sawyer-style musclewizard in Depot A during my first attempt at the game. That was some real rpg shit.

    I started this game and rolled a tech and sci heavy character with "paranoid" and "doctor" perks. First quest of the game is to go kill rats in a basement. Uninstalled.

    Underrail has been my most recent rpg; AoD notwithstanding (I tried to roll an assassin and only got past the first speech check once...).

    And I bumbled into some weird sort of stealth-assault no-psi character. Currently in the mushroom forest now. It's been a hell of a ride, from just barely beating the arena's last boss levels before I should had and taking on the mall....

    Lookin' forward for the expansion~

    You should be able to finish about 20 playthroughs of AoD before the

    So, I am playing Underrail, and I am having loads of fun. Now at the Junkyard looking for the drill (murmuring The Birthday Party's Junkyard as I go along), with a hybrid sniper/smg build of my own making.

    I can see why Underrail won't appeal to all tastes, it is a combatfag game, and a great one at that. But some people are simply missing the point. For example, let's talk about the criticism of not having a party. The advantage of not having a party is that different builds play very differently, whereas in party games the build differences are diluted due to the companions. So the only legitimate question here is: Do Underrail's different builds play differently? And the answer is YES! So it is doing what is supposed to do.

    The only half-significant criticism I have this far is the respawning enemies. I don't like respawns in any game, and I don't like them here either. If people need to grind in classic mode, make a designated respawning region that is out of the way. Thank you.

    I have already tried 3 other builds (assault tank, arbalist, sniper) in non-complete playthroughs before I ended up with my current sniper/smg, and I already have several ideas for future builds. Heck, I have not even tried Psi, yet! Looking forward to my next dozen of playthroughs. Btw, the GMS dungeon was good. Really really good.

    This is an absolutely huge cRPG. Is every room you clear in what is essentially an underground wilderness with its own ecosystem supposed to stay empty forever?

    From my perspective, if respawns are an issue at all, it's because they're always the same as the initial spawns in that room. It would better if the spawns shifted around to represent wildlife moving from area to area (including areas the player never sees), but that would require a tremendous amount of work. Keep in mind that sacrifices had to be made during development to save resources and man-hours, such as not implementing crawling animations for vent movement, an omission that was frankly explained to fans during development.

    In a living world with an ecosystem, one person shouldn't be able to clear out all of the wildlife on a permanent basis. It just doesn't make sense. I'd rather have a limited, abstracted representation of the ecosystem's robustness than none at all. Believable world-building and atmosphere call for it.

    I really never understood the Respawning complaints. It only happens to trash mobs, not the main encounters - and even they only do so once in a full moon.
