Why does the Codex masturbate over Obsidian so much?

    What's so good about them? They haven't made any good games (the keyword here is gameplay) so far and probably never will. The recent release of Alpha Popamole only reinforces this fact. Not to mention that their games have more bugs than Troika's.

    Was the story faggotry in MoTB that good? Or is it because of Avellone? Do you fags really think he can pull another PS:T?

    You can hope whatever you want, but I say we should stop cutting them so much slack. They've already made 3 games (and two expansions) and all of them (except for that one expansion) are shit.

    Adblock is your friend.

    For once I (mostly) agree with your OP, though. Obsidian are Bioware with slightly better writing and settings, and more bugs and worse engines (when they do them themselves).
    The majority of the codex seems as hypocritical about Obsidian as the gaming journalists are about Bioware and Bethesda.

    Really funny actually. Everyone seems to be looking for a cock to gobble.

    Obsidian are the harbringers of evil. They always release games with potential, sometimes even masterpiece potential but they release them unfinished.

    That is far more worse then releasing a bad, polished game.

    Never forgot, never forgive Kotor 2.

    clearly you can't have read the 50 threads called "ASS BROTOCOL". Or how people in the codex had said these things about obsidian since day one.

    the thread starter I don't care about, he is just another troll in the magic forest.

    Did you actually read "Ass Brotocol"? Despite the title the poster likes it and defends its weaknesses as either "not really important", "not so bad" or "ME did the same and was praised for it", etc.
    Skyway and maybe 2-3 others are critical, the rest either don't care much or defend Obsidian in true fanboy fashion. Not only AP but every Obsidian game. When NWN2 came out I was one of the few people here who liked it. Recently though, I had to remind people of its weaknesses which suddenly everyone either ignored or deemed unimportant. That boiled down to me being criticised for analysing in depth...
    Sorry, but a codex where I'm not the one defending mainstream games against a majority of rabid hardcore RPGers is sorely declined. And this Obsidian-fanboyism is just another symptom.

    This is what the Obsidian fanboys actually believe.

    If a game is unpolished and not popular, then it must be GOOD. LMAO

    Sometimes, reading the Codex is like getting lectured by an impotent old man blaming you for having boners.

    He has a point You know, Obsidian fails to deliver all the goddamn time.

    But to answer the original question: why? Because NO OTHER developer delivers, so the one eyed is the king etc.
