    Eurogamer has always been a "friend" of the Codex, bitching about the Codex about as much as we bitch about Oblivion, but this one is amusing:

    Is it true, guys? IS IT? HMM?!!! Did you really do that?

    Isn't Eurogamer responsible for that windbag Darwinia review?

    I don’t get it. 99% of the posters here are FPS fans…but they like FPS’s with a couple stats and a little dialogue. I would bet my life that everyone that bitched about Oblivion bought Oblivion. And I would win because they all talked about how playing it sucked. The big game people here are looking forward to is an FPS (Bioshock). The only difference between this site and other sites is you can swear; and, of course, the people here whine about Oblivion before they buy it, instead of praising it and then buying it. People like and adore the same crap ass fake rpgs here as anywhere else for the most part. And I’m pretty sure you’re all gay. VD’s making a real game so I’ll exclude him, but the rest of you cocksuckers aren’t happy unless your madly clicking a mouse while in awe of the fancy graphics of the latest FPS “rpg” or have a ballsack slapping on your chin and your tongue rubbing circles around the head of a penis. Keep drinking your mocha cherry coffee coolata and playing your rad super fresh games, bicthes. In a couple of years when all your games are made only for the consoles real men will take back the PC and these sites will be gay free.

    Nothing at all! Roqua is the fucking soul of this site. He reminds everyone of what is true roleplaying while the rest of us self-loathing faggots are sucking the cocks of some gay ass, twitch game,realtime with pause, pseudo rpg developers.

    I find your stereotyping of black people offensive to my chardonnay-swilling latte-lapping inner-city sensibilities. Next you'll say he's our Chef.

    Anyway, Eurogamer are a bunch of pretensious pansies who play nintendo.

    Why do all people who like to play, watch and read crap want to believe they're doing the right thing, that crap is good for them, and that people who don't like crap are marginal negative elitist snobs?

    I for one base my actions solely on the amount of discomfort it causes the people at eurogamer.

    They got this part down except for the official terminology. We're all either Angry Cunts or Stupid Cunts, and it would be nice if they showed they cared and got it right.

    I didn't read that thread, but I'm sure we figured out how it worked and that's where the problem was. It seems to be a system with absolutely no benefit over dialogue trees thats sole surpose is to make it incredibly simple to dumb down the dialogue. When one side of every dialogue is represented by an icon it makes detailed conversation impossible, meaning that they can just reuse a few generic phrases over and over again as the concept of communication abstracted to such a ridiculous level. The phrases don't even have to make sense under the context since it would only mean that the player didn't imagine their side of the conversation correctly. Sounds wonderful.

    Yeah, we all suck.

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. He's just a representative of the dark (or should i say, kinky) side of Codex. For you see, RPGCodex isn't famous just because it's some sort of renegade site devoted to cRPGs. Just like a cigar is not just a cigar.

    chardonnay (that you can afford) is total ghetto swill.

    I bet you even like the fake-butter malolactic fermented-all-to-hell shit. *barf*

    P.S. Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA should be a controlled substance. I'm horrible lit at 18:46 on the sabbath off a 4-pack.

    I am the only one here that is straight. I guess in a hippy Dungeon Siege is an rpg and beer tastes yucky sort of way thats whats wrong with me. Keep sucking dick buddy, all that jizzum will make you really strong.

    And being one of the few straight men left alive I have transended being a person, and I'm now a super man. I can get thruogh the day without using any hair products. I could even squish your fucking head in my ass crack. So I think you should edit your post to say "What exactly is wrong with this super man?"

    Yeah that is a great IPA. I've been wanting to try the 120 minute, but I can't find it anywhere.

    I bought a bottle of it once - good, but certainly not something you'd drink more than one of at a time. It's been a few years, so I can't remember enough to actually describe the flavor - very characteristic though.

    You seem much more confrontational these days. Can I offer you a blunt? How about some Guinness? Or perhaps dinner and a movie is more your style sweetums.

    I'm trying to remember the last FPS I bought. Heck, one of my big complaints about System Shock 2 was that it felt way too much like Half-Life, but I'm betting that SS2 was the last thing I bought which could be considered an "true" FPS. The only things after that which might be considered FPS-ish would be Morrowind and Bloodlines, but I never actually shot anything in either game. But hey, my big complaint about Bloodlines was the main plot stuff deteriorates pretty quickly in to an FPS style type map mission deal which revolves way too much on making everything on the map dead.

    Then again, I still like Doom 2.

    Well, it is. It's just a really, really, really, really shitty one that's barely even a game.

    Still, you have to admit that Dungeon Siege did have some neat dungeons and a pretty snazzy engine. If they took the level design of Dungeon Siege and added in an ACTUAL character system(as opposed to ripping off Dungeon Master's), and gave it some decent combat which felt like you were actually doing something important during the brawl.. It would have been a pretty kick ass dungeon crawler. Unfortunately, the character system and the combat are pretty fucking critical to a good dungeon crawler. Level design is nothing without those.

    I hate when new people find a 6 month old thread which they then try to raise from the dead with some witty pun. It's nice that you used the search feature and all but really, there are newer threads.

    Yeah, but those don't have Saint and more importantly, mostly suck.
    Not that this one wouldn't, though. I didn't even notice the dates until Saint's appearance got me interested.
