    I'm willing to bet you that this game will not have women, non-Europeans or uncloseted LGBTQs in anachronistic roles. Sawyer is serious about his history and it overrides his politics.

    What the fuck.

    This one is really simple. Fallout 1 is the best Fallout game, as per the massive vote here: https://rpgcodex.net/content.php?id=9453

    Fallout 2 is the second best Fallout game.

    There is a giant gap between the first two Fallouts and the so called "Fallout" New Vegas, which is even easy to see in the votes. It doesn't even come close to the heels.

    "arguably the best". Get your mouth away from Josh's balls, you perverted idiot.

    Hope that helps.

    This really made me mad. Psychopaths trying to blatantly rewrite history to push their personal agenda, with zero regards for the good of society in preserving historical facts. I told you he's a sociopath, he proves it yet again. He's the type of guy who destroy cultural heritage for personal tastes like ISIS did in Palmyra.

    "Arguably the best"... I'd expect this wording from some rpshit outlet. It's a bad sign that this is now the level of the rpgcodex editorial policy.

    How would I know -- it read like the kind of shilling that's typical to exactly you, also the nice personal touch of "one of my favs, poe".

    Being perceptive and noticing little tell-tale signs such as indentation helps a lot.

    Well the Image looks ass, other than that I will just keep an open mind.

    I am expecting decline anyways so maybe I will be pleasantly surprised, who knows.

    Maybe Sawyer will do better with something he's truly passionate about than attempting to just copy paste Baldur's Gate nostalgia. And hey at least they can't do loredumps when it takes place in a world we're already familiar with... right?

    Many people criticize DE for not having a combat. If Josh was super smart, he'd not only chase the popular game, but also improve it by adding combat. He wants to play it safe, I think.

    wowzie an experimental, text heavy Obsidian RPG! experimental twitter message from Josh in a few years:

    "Dear public, let me address the room's elephant, concerning the negative sentiment about my latest project 'Pentiment'. I admit this game is akin to a pile of excrement but I assure you that my intent was not malevolent. It was foolish to think that tagging it "experimental" would be relevant in tampering the RPG codex' temperament. None of my games turn out to be excellent which sadly means I've become totally irrelevant. If only Chris was here to help out with development, I would not have to write down my testament :(." -Love, Josh

    A genderqueer African-American is found stabbed in an alley, and the players take control of sassy transsexual detective who is tasked with bringing the perpetrators to justice. All the clues point to a bigger conspiracy led by a blonde villain wearing a red tie.. Oh and everybody is using swords so it's totally medieval and historical and not related to current events at all.
