    And here I am thinking that you would have disabled those map question marks put there for dumbfucks with a fetish for instant gratification.

    Ridiculous, we already have enough people who played AoD seven times, but we will need at least two months for that to be true towards Underrail.

    Bear in mind that AoD's Empire is what would happen if Roman Empire never fell to barbarian invasion, but rather it just expanded on and on until it was brought low in what was pretty much a magitek nuclear-biological-chemical war with Gods and world-wrecking weapons after a round of Sunset Empire DLC.

    That sounds like a excellent premise for AOD 3 - show a distant part of the (Aelliam?) Empire where Imperial authority survived and its mostly unified, but they have to deal with constant invasions from outside (like fighting not-Persia, or Not-Slavs) and dynastic trouble, religious conflicts and revolts from the inside. Maadoran already has some of a Eastern Roman/Arab vibe.

    To be fair to the Ordu, they're sorta Mongol and Turks fused into one big horde. Btw, its a pity we never fought a horse-bound foe in the game, could have been a very interesting fight.

    Hopefully the IP will be in the hands of a proper AAA dev by then. We will finally get the fully 3D, open world and real-time experience that AoD was always meant to be, as a decent budget will remove a lot of the technical limitations that restricted ITS.

    I laughed and then cried cause ITZ what would exactly happen if franchise was bought by AAA developer. Just compare TES and Fallout before and after they became AAA.

    Kinda boring to read and too neutral positive. It almost sounds like you didn't want to write this review. You don't get excited for the shit parts and you don't get excited for the great parts.

    Probably reserving all the excitement for when UnderRail releases.
    I really like AoD (despite sucking at it and not getting very far yet) but I hope UR gets goty above AoD. (Or that Styg will delay to Jan 2nd or something and both win goty!)

    Not to mention 'Romance the way it should be done by non-retarded people', by Vince D. Weller.
    I fully expect trans/homosexuality, BDSM, psychological abuse, mental traumatization, pedo/necrophilia and foot fetishism to be involved.

    At the very least he could tell us were he stands regarding the Yennefer-Triss question. Yennefer or Triss? This is important VD.

    Game gets shittier as you play it and it makes you want to murder VD at least once per hour. Overall worth playing.
    Matches my experience with it perfectly.

    Never claimed that. There are plenty of great RT RPGs (Daggerfall, Darklands, Ultima Underworld, etc).

    You could play Fallout 4 too and write something like "Fallout 4 vs. Witcher 3, the GOTY battle: The secret diaries of Vault Dweller and his descent into the popamole darkness."
