    2 pages aren't enough when talking about a masterpiece like ELEX.
    There's so much to talk about.
    I think around 50 pages would do it justice.

    Torment TON is definitely a hard one, as I am a fanboy of the original Torment. For me, personally, TTON is hard to accept the results and to swallow everything that was promised and not delivered.

    As a project is a failure, as a game is less than mediocre. Its just a horrible, predictable point and click. Its not even fun.

    I'm pissed off just to write about it.

    Nothing to nail,that is the opinion of like 90% of kodexers. Still he should write the review if he have the time and the passion for it.

    I'm perfectly fine with a negative review, but should at least be like Junta's review of it for the Codex. It can't be "DECLINE. BANAL, SHIT, BORING. FARGO LIED".

    Junta is the right person for this one, indeed. His review was super good and reasonable

    Hóngwèibīng don't you still have a connection to Junta?
    Might you ask him wether he wants to submit a condensed version of his review?
    Junta is good, and his review touches exactly on the points I would mention, why Edge does make the noncombat checks too easy, why Crisis mode does not work and is just a mediocre combat system, why the writing is most of the times just fatiguing.
    He also points out the few things it does right, which elevate it for me above trash status:

    So the review is anything but unfair.

    If anyone knows how to reach him, I would love to. Would be wrong to simply re-edit his review to like 1/10th of its size without his authorization.

    Numanuma is objectively mediocre. It was a major disapointment, which tends to polarize expectations. And the reputation still affects people who came late to the game. Kinda like with Lionheart. Everyone starts playing it expecting to get disappointed.

    I'd be interested in the Crescent Hawks Inception. I'd need to replay it if picked, it's been ages. I'm a fairly big Battletech fan, so I did play it back in the mid 90s (it was re-released in a pack called POWERHITS BATTLETECH in 92, I found it in a bargain cd rack sometime later)

    My recollection is that either the Inception or Revenge poster was double sided, with one being combat art, and the other a mech recognition guide. And every other week I'd flip the fucking thing over because its hard to decide between COMBAT and MECHS.

    felipepepe About Salt and Sanctuary. I whipped up a draft, even if I have very low confidence in myself. I'll send it to you, but in all honesty, pretty much anyone else than me would do a better job.

    The thing about Numanuma kickstarter is that if you weren't there you won't understand. The thing had hit us right into our hearts tired of a despair caused by dark ages. Each update gave us exactly what we wanted to hear. It was a staggering display of Fargo talent as a marketing guy. We will never again experience such mix of excitement, hope and enthusiasm that was Numanuma campaign.
