Social media breeds narcism, not shocking those that make a living by posting their garbage takes on yt are narcissists.

Show some respect. Alpha Protocol wouldn't have been possible without Matthew Rorie.

Yeah, not a big fan of the format of the show or the interviewer.

Not only was he monologuing and interrupting Ziets too much, he couldn't even stay on a single train of thought. Constantly jumping from topic to topic, or reacting to things happening in the game.

The whole thing just lacked focus. Why are you wasting time asking the narrative lead about mundane D&D rules or gameplay mechanics that neither of you are experts in?

Here's a thing with George and Annie VanderMeer:



Join us to discover the intricate journey of trying to push the boundaries in narrative design. Together with esteemed and experienced panelists we will be discussing our journey to find fun and challenging core gameplay in narrative-focused games without resorting to established mechanics like combat. Let's discuss how to push the medium from the narrative angle!

Guy who mingles with such retards who would want 90% of Codex dead, and are unable to change a lightbulb but wanna change society into mental asylum so they can feel at home, has 0% chance of making based cRPG. Let us stop fooling ourselves. 43 pages of self-gaslighting is enough. /Thread unwatched

What is interesting is that it is already 3 years since this thread was created. Yet, we got nothing so far. kek

Tranny, Soyboy and Feminist. What a splendid D&D company our George has chosen as his party on quest for good writting

Our dystopia is fucking hilarious

Which one is supposed to be trans? Asking for a friend.

Also, I'd wager they're all feminist.

Its funny how western game developers all about pushing narrative to new heights trying hard as fuck to snatch that section of the hipster gamer market who watches stuff like critical role and throws money at games like disco esylum and divinity original sin but only clocks 1 hour in these games.

Meanwhile elden ring chads narrative designers with their goofy bare bone jap engrish story 10 million units sold

Assume he's just doing what he has to to not make a scene unless you have additional evidence to the contrary.

Are you sure it was him who ended that relationship?

I can confirm through my own research on the matter that he did not initiate the divorce.

So just by looking at the intro, Ziets says they're working on a couple of things for other studios, and one in-house game. Narrative-focussed, with non-lethal combat mechanics they're experimenting with. That's interesting.
