    Just reinstalled to see the supposed big new update. A load of new horrible writing that I mostly skipped entirely because it's unbearable. A few pointless but possibly expensive cinematics and a new waifu. Can't believe they have a content pipeline in place and it took them half a year to produce this much new stuff.

    Apparently there's about an hour and a half of new cutscenes, discounting the porn stuff. Which isn't a whole lot for a six month wait, I agree.

    Not as hard as FOW, I'm still poverty-level dev.

    Depends on the quality of cutscenes. There are cutscenes that make most 3D movies look bad. Most of these look like just 10-second loops of breathing animation.

    Also I can't believe I just subjected myself to this writing. Did the animators write this?

    I can't find any specific credits, and the website's vague as well, so I'm not sure if they have a writer on board or it's just one of the animation team doing the writing. It might very well also be that there's one guy doing the main plot beats while the rest of the team goes "Dude do you know what'd be hilarious? Having a Tim Pool expy get upset about his beanie business getting tanked because of a similarly-named business!". That's an option as well with a game like this.

    Maybe one of the fine Codexers who own this game can take a loot at the credits to see if there's a writer mentioned.

    they couldn't animate the mouths a little? Not even with lip syncing, just some movement to sell the illusion the character is talking. And considering the type of game, I wouldn't believe the excuse that the mouth isn't rigged

    Considering that in 99% of VN's there is zero character movement during dialogues I'd say this game is quite revolutionary. :troll:

    I have played a bit of the new content and can confirm that there are almost no improvements to be seen. In fact I now get an annoying glitch where textures fail to load properly which didn't happen before lmao.

    However I do have at least one bit of good news to bring:

    Whatever the future of this website may be, let it be known to everyone that the Codex has forever been immortalized inside a shitty porn game.

    :mad::?:|:?:|:mad: eh, that last clip on the dialogue seemed damn cringy. Maybe a snippet from the middle is a terrible way to judge this but damn... Maybe i should just find links to the sex scenes instead. Judge how bad it is. You have to be a :obviously:prestigious porn connoisseur:obviously:

    hmmm... I watched some linked vids to huge supporters of the game and I do like bullet hells.

    And this channels backlogs: https://m.youtube.com/user/AppleJacK3r/videos
    I'm pondering if you can piss off the waifus and maje them hate you. Its obvious you can buff their ego and adoration but the opposite alienation is something I'd explore. Always see what you can do in a gain that goes against the grain.

    jukebox on ship. Nice. Tbh, I am curious about the game and trying to shove the waifu out of my brain and look at the other gameplay. And can our protagonist get a damn death helmet or something PANTIES ain't gonna protect you.

    I find it funny the codex made it in the game. Lol. That alone makes it a buy for me. I like shooters and i ponder if twin stick controller will rock. The last video i watched the youtuber plays via keyboard and mouse. I play gauntlet legends with a gamepad. I play most platformer & shooters with a controller. Hell, some realtime rpgs I play with a gamepad. The rest of the game keyboard & mouse YES. I also consider if there is grinding missions or repeat areas if available. I will NOT touch the game until it is finished and bugs iron out. Fuck, there might be DLC in its future so..... I have may have to be even more patient.

    But i do want to rip those stanky panties off of protags face. I hope that there is a mask/helmet upgrade.

    (its probably more panties in his collectable stash...:?)

    Game is DEAD since the quality of the porn is so shit. They won't ever move beyond shitty 3 second loops with no interactivity, so why bother? There are fucking flash games out there with better "control".

    They already made the bulk of their money and reviews are inflated by memes. Why would they ever have any incentive to improve?

    Welcome to the 2020s, where decline is not only profitable, but mandatory.

    If it's just assets it's not so bad. IIRC, EPIC made Paragon assets free to use, although I'm not too sure about the specific license.

    You can probably even lewd them if its creative commons/public domain.

    I know. The point he's making is that if you use an asset like that people will see the original character in a porn game instead of a new character created just for this game. Even for a game that went to shit and died.

    I was one of the few who was actually really interested in Paragon (before the big map update it was a really interesting 3D MOBA with verticality and good mobility), but I couldn't really care less if FOW uses those assets, even if they get lewded. In fact, it would even be a very good idea if Paragon had a bigger fanbase (it doesn't).

    The crux of the matter is that some people think that players need to suspend their disbelief to play Subverse, when in fact the game appears to be an incoherent mix of different ideas, aesthetics, "humor" and gameplay.
