Codex Year of the Donut

I vaguely remember this game. It was the game where a bunch of euro gaming websites published reviews... before a single review copy was sent out. Turns out they were all pirating leaked games to prepare reviews for them far before release therefore creating reviews based on game builds the public would never experience.

overambitious games are the best kind, btw. good video.

This game's control scheme was a total mess on PC... there was a dedicated blinking button for some reason, and in order to let go of the rope during climbing you had to press PrintScreen.

Releasing reviews once in a blue moon, too busy with STALKER Anomaly challenge (no shops, only crafting) which drags on for year(s).

Yeah, I think Warlockracy is by far the most Codex-Adjacent of the modern ReviewTuber sphere. Being an apparent NMA veteran is another thing also I view as a positive attention-draw.

If there were ever going to be one poor schmuck to take upon themselves the task of distilling The Legend of Grimoire into a single, digestible YouTube video for the modern consuming public, I think it's going to be him.

His voice is back to normal?

Edit:

Halfway through, but I have to comment on his disdain for alternative paths in HR. Sure, as he says, you can go back and explore everything for maximum XP and that sucks, but I think he forgets that not everyone plays to maximize XP gain. Personally I try to avoid degenerate gameplay like that, so to me all these alternative paths are great, and make for good replayability.

Edit 2:

Oh, it's an old video. Thought it was new.

The counterpoint for invisible war rewarding exploration is completely moot because the game is so small you will stumble upon the stuff you need.
And speaking of his hate for Hr,the "deus ex fanfiction" critique is literally a problem with invisible war.
Almost all of the characters are throwbacks to the first game even when they don't make any sense.They are just included for fan service.
I am not even gonna go into the zoomer mentality of "1-2 SKILLS ARE USELESS THEREFORE SKILL SYSTEM BAD".
It is even more funnier because you can apply the same logic to IW weapon mod systems(some combinations are useless).

Him also loving universal ammo is just him putting on a " I am retarded" hat with a matching t-shirt.
