Should i be able to see some of the editor's notes, niggas?
Little known Codex Fun Fact # 72:
There's a revolving admin position that jumps to a different user account every hour, giving that user full admin permissions temporarily. Each user will only receive this boon once. You wasted yours to post that.

:x I won't waste my next chance. Expect me, through one of my alts, in five years

Shit article, obvious trolling, not funny.

When commiefag and me agree on how badly you failed you know you're all alone in the world and nobody cares about you.

With Chris Avellone working his writing magic [Editor's Note: I think the more important thing is that when writing about New Vegas' writing, you mention the Lead Writer was one John Gonzalez. And he was also the "Creative Design Lead". I think it's this guy who should get more credit.],
Mark Morgan on the music [Editor's Note: Mark Morgan didn't actually work on FNV. They just re-used some of his old Fallout songs in parts.]
and the project being lead by none other than the Josh Eric Sawyer [Editor's Note: Sawyer never worked on any of the previous Fallouts. Shouldn't we just re-write this part and say FNV was created by an entirely new group of people? It's a bit like Obsidian hiring the janitor who cleaned up after the Fallout gold party and then saying "Look! Original guys from Fallout are on the team!"]

It's good. Was laughing hysterically at a couple of points. The AP part was a bit weird though. Sounds very schizophrenic, which I guess is a good description of the 'dex. It also has an outright lie in the bullet point and a link to one of the shittiest trying too hard LP's on here (sorry Cassidy). ME2 section also contains a critical error: your love interest does not in fact carry over, not really; only Liara does, AND that doesn't stop you from shagging someone else at the same time.

Enjoyed the 'editor notes; but overall a lacklustre year in review.

Brilliant. Sums up the thoughts of many jaded hearts. I hate animated smilies but I'd put the big one with the sternly clapping dude in the opera box if I could find it. Last bastion of free speech is the Codex.

Thanks for that.

An interesting read. Obviously DU had to bash Alpha Protocol in order to save face but it's made clear (in a subtle way) that he actually enjoyed it. GJ DU, you're a true Alpha bro!

My love interest didn't carry over....didn't even begin! :( Oh Chakwas, how many universes do I have to save before you'll be mine? :tears:

Finally got to reading this. Good stuff.

Not enough hate spewed at Jowood, but the entire article was relatively concise -- doable.

That's a Year in Review I like!
And lots of links included that will make me come back to the article. Double like.

Why you included all this ME/action stuff, well, maybe there is a reason and it's a good one. Some day it will make sense.
