    I get the joke, it just comes off as simping for Infinitron.

    That's too much coverage regardless but there's a huge flaw in your implication. 95% of Codex coverage for fallout 3 and oblivion was pre-release. Before the full extent of the disasters were known. At that point Oblivion had so many lies being told by the developers that people still believed it might be OK. The other was the first reboot of the most popular franchise on the Codex. Not a surprise that pre-release interest was high, even though the amount of news was still excessive.

    You will notice that the coverage of both games dropped to near 0 after release when people realised what total disasters they were.

    In contrast, the Outer worlds coverage seems to have continued long after the Codex has turned off the game.

    Now why is that?

    Also a poor example from Infinitron because quite a lot of those linked articles are humorous in nature or only incidentally mention Oblivion. It's not exactly surprising that there was a lot of hype pre-Oblivion and then a lot of mockery afterwards.

    One of them for example is that New Vegas is now available on GOG. It only incidentally mentions Fallout 3 and Oblivion as also being on GOG as well.

    I assume the Fallout 3 tag is similar.

    It seems that Infinitron reads only the news that he has posted (and even this is very unlikely)

    My memory may be shit, but I remember Vault Dweller scouring the internet for post release Oblivion news until his finger tips bled so he could hammer that game even more. I didn't post Oblivion news as often just because I wanted to see how Vince would trash that game the next time. He had a field day with it. Especially once they announced the horse armor.

    Infinitron is an even bigger piece of shit than I thought. This is proof enough that Infinitron is a shill and Codex suffers immensely because of him.

    Just make Darth Roxor a mod ffs

    I, for one, would welcome more news on indie trash nobody cares about.

    Because this is RPG Codex, a refuge for RPG hobbyists who may, quite possibly, care about some obscure piece of shit no other website covers.

    It's certainly more interesting than copypasted news about the same dozen mainstream RPGs everyone else reports about daily.

    I'm someone who can appreciate Obsidian/Troika/etc.'s past contributions to my library and I see zero reason for them to dominate the news. There are likely hundreds of interesting indie projects, smaller studios, all that who would likely benefit from and appreciate attention and coverage and I would certainly appreciate them being put on my radar.

    As things are right now, I barely even open the News subforum. I get my actual news from browsing Steam's upcoming games list, browsing Abu Antar's excellent upcoming RPGs thread that lists EVERYTHING no matter how obscure, and checking out threads made by Codexian developers like the Titan Outpost and the Space Wreck guy (whose games did get newsposts at least, so there's that).

    You don't really miss anything by not browsing the news subforum.

    If you're doing nothing but reporting on the same big studios everyone else is reporting on, the question arises of why you'd come here in particular to hear about them. Perhaps your writing and investigation sets you apart from every other site reporting on them. Perhaps it doesn't. It behooves Codex to differentiate itself meaningfully from the mainstream IMO, as the mainstream enthusiast press centered around games is not really in a good place. One way to differentiate is to offer something they absolutely don't and won't - a broad selection of things the mainstream ignores (and they ignore a lot).

    TL;DR don't try to compete with the mainstream, they're playing at being retards and shit journalists, a game most Codexers would accurately describe as decline

    Indeed and same thing about felipepe polls we should keep them, it helps to discover hidden gems. I probably not even tried troubleshooters without seeing it had a high satisfaction ratio on the poll. The obsidian dev diaries and outerworld dlc ? I am not reading them anymore. I have nothing against obsidian , they are doing toys for kids now and it's fine, completely fine . But i am not interested into that.

    The less time infinitron spends making news posts the more time he's going to spend splitting threads.

    You gotta admit it's very fitting that the Codex RPG has C&C without an obvious choice

    Dark Alliance id have left up due to heritage. But it barely counts.

    Think your all a bit fucked in the head for getting angry about the second one though.
