The Codex reaction will be negative regardless of the game's quality, like it was for Pillars of Eternity and Shadowrun: Hong Kong.

RPGs with a narrative focus don't tend to do well here any more. Divinity: Original Sin got a much better reception here.

Eh, probably some truth in that. Worth noting Larian has a huge number of fan boys.

Are people seriously upset about NPCs having colored hair? If this game was coming out 10 years ago none of you would give a shit.

Fargo's done a great job of hyping himself though. I remember way back in the early 10s, Brother None was griping about how some games journalist didn't even know who he is. Now they all do.

Of course the Codex will survive. I am 100% ready for TON to be a pile of steaming bovine manure. My body is ready. Bring it.

The question is: will shit survive being compared to tides of numenera? Or maybe, will the codex eat the shit that this game will be? Or will this game be more shitty than the codex? Or will shit be more codex than ToN? Or will ToN be just a TON of shit? Or will shit be a TON of codex? These are all answers lost in the evanescent and fleeting ethereal winds that blow in the cosmic collective hivemind known as the VOID.

It's not gonna be shit.

It may not live up to the hype or the expectations set by PS:T, but then again what does?

Of course we won't be satisfied with RPGs with a narrative focus when that narrative is so tremendously shit with its earth-shaking banality and incompetence. Narrative is the last bastion of a game, when everything else is beyond redemption. Will TToN be good? 99% sure it won't be. Will the Codex "survive" it? Yes, we have other games to flock to. Will it be successful? Yes, the same way PoE was. Most people don't analyze what they consume, so any deeper insight into whatever they are served isn't on the table at all, that's why so much shit is shoveled into our faces day in, day out and that's why the mainstream is rationalized as a negative thing.

What is there more to say? Being excited about a game that isn't out yet gets us bitten on the ass. Hoping for it to be good is stupid - hope is a cruel mistress.

Looking at the Beta, I just don't see anything interesting - maybe it's the super distant perspective, the BG2-esque aesthetics or the boring ass hell character creation/tutorial. It all just makes me sneer. All I see is a mishmash of pretentious garbage, very similar to PoE. Both characters and objects are mostly static, just waiting for the player to click on them to get a wall of text - no reactivity anywhere. Difficult task action bar looks simply pathetic. No corpses or demons walking the streets, no sense of dread or awe, nothing. I'm pretty sure even the story and characters are going to be underwhelming compared to the original's.

Banal hoax for desperate fanboys.

Banal post for desperate shitposters. When I think of planescape, I touch myself, you know that? For me, it was like having sex for the first time in my life. And I'm no desperate fanboy, but I still have hope. I don't care if this game won't be on the same level of the original as long as it can give me just a fragment of the beauty of torment. Just a shard of that incredible sense of depth, mistery and alienation.
