    It wouldn't be a PB game without pestering you with a few tiny but extremely obnoxious design quirks.

    I remember running in Elex 1 drove me up the ceiling because there's this trolling mini-pause between pressing the run button and Jax actually starting to jog. :argh:

    :D, yes I am fanboy but I do remember those intermittent ....." issues " with ELEX and I cant recall all of them but I always remember how I ignored them or quickly found ways to mitigate their impact

    But I like your description of "extremely obnoxious design quirks" .....its a really accurate way of defining what we all know and use to with any PB game

    And, why did he get together with that filthy hippie Caja, and produce a goblin offspring? Where's Nasty? So many questions.

    Sadly one of the side-effects of injecting pure ELEX into your eyeballs.

    IIRC a lot of the decisions (such as who won most of magalan and who jax ended up with) are based on the majority of players in the analytics data, so most people are uncultured filth who chooses caja over nasty. I did nasty the first time, and caja the second time.


    Maybe there is a universe out there where people pick nasty.

    Jax fucked the hell outta Nasty. That bitch ate his ass and did all sorts of awful, inhumane, Mike Adriano things to him that he was never the same.

    I'm sure Nasty has better looking feet. More well-preserved by not walking around barefoot everywhere.

    The hold button to pick up won't bother me as I'm probably going to speedhack the game.
