    Agreed - for years Cleve was bleeting about how crappy Wizardry 8 would be and that it was vapourware - now four years on from the release of Wizardry 8, a resounding success story as far as most CRPG fans are concerned, and Grimiore is still no closer to reality.

    Coming from Australia though, his description of us was actually pretty accurate in places...last time I went home everyone was too busy sitting on their arses watching reality TV and endless sport to approach anything vaguely like "rage" or "passion" (except when their team is screwed by the referee, of course). :cry:

    Well, I was being ironic. Guess I forgot the smiley.

    To me it's pretty much clear that the guy is somewhat fucked up in the head, but who knows what he might be suffering from that makes him act like a complete yerk. (Can't find the proper words right now, so "yerk" will have to do.)

    Edit: Yerk-off, Pissant, Teletubbie, etc.

    Thx for your posts in this thread, Ex. Some of the quotations were grotesquely hilarious. I thought I could give this game a chance if I craved for old school dungeon crawling, but maybe I'll just replay EOB1 instead if the need arises.

    I really like firstperson, party-based old dungeon romps, and was hoping Grimoire would be a good enough game. But even if the political stance of a developer has no bearing on the products he creates, I think I will refrain from purchasing this game. Not because of his views per se (hideous and backwards as they are), but because I dislike the idea of financing someone who in turn apparently finances radical or extremist organizations, as seems to be the case.

    Is this an appropriate time to bring up some of Rex's quotes over the past few years? The ones about blacks not being human?

    No. He has a really small penis, and is overcompensating for it. :o

    This thread needs some Cleve quotes in it. Can someone exhaustively research all of his internet meanderings and make about 20 posts that detail his weird views? Thanks in advance.

    It's called 'taking the piss', Teatime. I was quite serious about your piano playing ability, though. Keep up the footwork.

    I've never heard that expression... and I fail to see how men's room activities have any bearing on the situation. :?

    Error number 1: Expecting exitium to be accountable for his actions or words.
    Error number 2: Paying attention to him.

    I'm guilty of number 2 as well. :cry:

    Taking the piss is a widely used expression in the UK, which Teatime would know already, natch. It just means making fun of or mocking someone or something. It's been used in various Brit films too.

    He's just a poor sick man. You should pity him, not damn him. It's obvious that he has serious personal issues and is mentally ill.

    The man needs to be sedated and placed into a padded room where he can't hurt himself and others.

    Sounds like a good idea. He'd have plenty time to finish his phantom game then. We might even see it before he dies of old age (if the titanium supermen can die of that).

    Well, titanium is actually not very dense at all, just extremely strong. That is why it is a good building material. I think that whole thing could well be the funniest thing ever written, though....

    I didn't laugh at 911, but I do agree with his assessment of the braindead fastfood eating sheeple of amerikkka, though.

    chances are, no matter where you live, someone thinks you and your country is full of morons.

    trying to say it to someone else is pretty pointless or whatever

    (austrailians are morons)

    Well, actually, he's pretty wrong.

    • I bought a gas mask for a halloween gag about 15 years ago. I have never needed it for anything other than that halloween gag. In fact, it's stayed packed up in a box for the last nine years. I never even considered getting it out after 9/11.
    • I watched Jerry Springer a few times when nothing else was on but infommercials, and I'm quite aware the show is staged.
    • Don't think I've eaten in a food court anywhere other than an airport my entire life. That would be once when my flight was delayed in Chicago.
    • Feelings of immunity are pretty well founded. I'm more likely to die in a car wreck than from an attack - yet I still drive.

    I could go on, but there's no way in hell I'm going to live my life differently out of some paranoid, chickenshit delusion that the world is coming to an abrupt, cataclysmic end. I'm certainly not going to move out of my townhouse and in to a bomb shelter because of some wacked out people who think America is the Great Satan.

    I'd like to also point out how utterly ironic it is for someone who LIVES IN A HOLE IN THE GROUND OUT OF FEAR to preach to any American who might have been afraid after 9/11 for buying a gas mask.

    Yes, that's right. Cleve is a fat chickenshit douche.

    And while I'm on the subject of him being a fat chickenshit douche:

    No, a guy who lives in a bomb shelter is a fucking pussy. See, you criticise Americans for moving on after 9/11. Guess what, that's what NORMAL people do! You have a crisis, you deal with it, and you MOVE ON. You don't MOVE UNDERGROUND and preach to other people about how silly they are for being afraid, because that makes you a hypocrit.

    400 square meters? Is it shaped like your mom's bosom? Nothing says "security" like mom's bosom!

    Yep. Titanium (Ti) has a density of only 4,51 g/cm3 - not dense at all. He should have said his bones are made of lead (11,34 g/cm3) or uranium (18,97 g/cm3). I guess he is "way, way past" physics :?

    He did mention one time how his bones had the density of depleted uranium armor.
