RPGWatch was going to shut down - taken over by Taluntain instead!

I remember thinking "WTF is RPGWatch" whenever I first heard it here. I was surprised at how dead it was when I went to check what it was. Make no mistake, this was a while coming. For such a general forum to be so dead, it was a clear sign it wasn't long for the world.
It's not closing because it's dead. It's closing because the admin is tired being the admin.
Can't imagine this ever happening to 'dex. Right... guys?

Yeah, to me Fallout has always been a mockery of American consumerism and faked/forced optimism. It was clear from the moment I started reading the manual.
I also make mockeries of people by having them create advanced mobile mechanized armor

I'm sorry for bringing this bad news to you.

Get woke, go broke. By 2010 it was essentially a tranny stronghold of mega marxist meat maulers pretending to be interested in RPGs.

Their interview with me was the high point of their existence and it was all downhill after that.

This guys will move here....

Just like the Outlaws in ELEX, all they care about *the credit*, and fuck everybody else.

Mockery? More satire really.

just realized a bunch of non-americans love fallout because they thought it was anti-capitalist lol

It is a bit like Robocop. Sure, there are a lot of political ideas that were put into the work by the creators, but at least they knew enough to make those ideas take the back seat so that you can enjoy the game/move despite of them.
Not the original game, that one was for the most part apolitical, aside from who the super mutant villains were referencing. The politics started with the second game. I read through the F1 holodisks on the wiki, and main explanation for why it started is that "the war is going in a very bad direction." For the intro scene, I'd love it if America came in to liberate Canada from our communist government. The only problem I see is that the Canadians are going to bring down America from within if given federal votes. The idea that we live in a hard and brutal world has nothing to do with ideology anyway.

Well, the two are very close, but yeah, satire is a better word for it.

Even our thread about their closing down is growing faster than their thread about closing down. When we finally close down our thread about closing down will grow so fast that we'll be forced to close down.
Does it really count as growing faster when half of this thread is people crapping their diapers about politics in Fallout, a longbow that even Legolas couldn't pull into making it about RPGWatch?
Could be worse; could be another PoE thread.

even rpgwatch could tell that the game mechanics sucked (but they praise the story, which also was fucking terrible)

As the title says - RPGWatch will be closing down soon. I think many people here used to frequent the Watch and many have memories of the friendly kickstarter contests between both sites. So, thought some of you may be interested.

As long-time member but rarely poster of the Codex, I may be seeking refuge here. I'll mostly be lurking as I have done in the past, but you may see my face pop up once in a while to ask questions about games...

Anyway, here's the news below.


It's a good news bad news situation.
No random wanderer will be taken hostage in this dumpster.
On the other hand, some of them will join us, some already have and it shows...

What about closing new inscriptions for 6 month or so so they will settle down elsewhere and forget about us?

As an experiment, I intentionally tried to get banned from rpgwatch once about year or two ago. I insulted the senior mods and admin non-stop; I turned off all filter inhibitions and just spewed whatever came to mind, no matter how offensive. It didn't matter how obnoxious I was, they wouldn't ban me; they wouldn't even give me a warning. No wonder they're closing down if they would have people like me for a member.
You should have talked more about your favourite austrian painter.

Eventhough my feelings about RPGWatch are no longer the same, I am proud of everything we did and have accomplished in the past years and I really want to thank all of you for being with us.

I'm sorry for bringing this bad news to you.

Well I hope we do see you and other ex-RPGWatch members here on Codex. This is a great place to discuss games, get gaming news and feedback on all types of RPG paraphernalia

And we have interesting and robust political discussions if you enjoy those types of debates. But always remember their is an important and supported policy of true freedom of speech here :cool:

Fallout is an alternate reality where the 1960's culture wars following the death of President Kennedy never happened ... over the next 40 years American developed technology we can only dream about, advanced beyond imagination in every facet of their lives and ultimately faced the communist threat on their feet at their finest hour and went down fighting like heroes ...

... unlike the modern era, where America faced the communist threat in high heels and push-up bras and klownworld utterly capitulated to their 2020 coup with total submission, making the previous 200 years into a big joke with Chairman Xi lighting his cigar on a flaming fart from an Amerikwan tranny's asshole and congratulating himself on his ability to conquer a nation without firing a shot.

We have no need of nuclear war when all that is left of Amerikwa looks like San Francisco and Seattle, the Chinese would be doing us a huge personal favor to nuke us.
