    Achtung, citizens of RPG CODEX.

    It has come to my attention that, according to this twitter post, Larian Studios is currently conducting an RPG survey. We love surveys.
    It is important to teach them the eternal truth that isometric, turn-based, tactical combat games are the bestest RPG games, so everybody go there and give them this valuable advice.

    You can find the survey here.

    Thanks, jerf.

    Don't worry gentlemen and ladies(?), I will fight for your very souls.

    Edit: Did my Codexian duty. :salute: Those fellows at Larian will only be releasing isometric turn-based games with epic character creation and progression from now on.

    Larian asks what's best in life.

    CHALLENGING. ISOMETRIC. SOLO. TACTICAL TURN-BASED COMBAT. CUSTOM CHARACTERS. NOT STORY-DRIVEN.

    You see three financial analysts. Do you choose to (a) fight, (b) debate fiscal economy?

    it certainly felt awkward to first click "I love strategy games" and then mark all the ones listed on a later page as "never played"

    Survey was OK ,but their list of strategy games and action "RPGs" is abysmal.

    Did my Codexian duty. Though they should have listed individual features instead of games so we could express our hatred for level scaling, quest compasses, anime, romances and other such shit.

    They are developing prestigious turn-based rpgs and thus don't have to be knowledgeable in such pleb genres as action rpg or third person action/adventure. All those games should've been under decline category anyway, no need to differentiate any further.

    Did my part.

    I thought they insisted a bit too much on coop and competitve/MMO games. Gotta be a bit worried for the future.

    They're going to see all these unique genders from Codex visitors and wonder just what kind of 'community' this site actually is. Actually, Swen knows but is probably too disturbed to tell people about it.

    Keynesian policy solutions are based on mathematic models with unrealistic assumptions and are enforced by economically illiterate politicians, who are incentivised to run a constant budget deficit by the short electoral cycle.

    That survey was total decline. Not a single fucking blobber, but we have things like Fallout 4, Shadow of Mordor and Dishonored 2 :roll:
