    Hey Chris,

    1. Have you given a chance and/or tried the soulsborne games at all? (Demons' Souls, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Dark Souls 2 or Dark Souls 3)?

    How do you feel about the indirect way of telling a story through the environment, placement of monsters and item descriptions rather than direct? (even with the heavy action/stamina-management aspect)

    2. Have you ever considered working again with the cast from Planescape: Torment, such as Jennifer Hale or Rob Paulsen?

    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    I'm pretty sure he also said they were going to make a great game, don't believe everything you hear on the internet.

    Wow, looks like I missed some sweet drama.

    Blaintard getting ignored by Avellone is also pretty hilarious, although I didn't get to the posts that caused it.

    Also had a good look for the video and couldn't track it down, seems they cleared out their Vimeo account in 2016. Bit disappointing how quickly some of these gamedev-related videos disappear, may start archiving some of the ones referenced around here.

    I'm preparing a compilation of MCA's posts in this thread which I'll post on Google docs.

    It'll be ready in a few months.

    Chris:

    Alpha Protocol was janky and laughable as a third person action game, but it was a magnificent beast all the same with the reactivity and setting. What were you all thinking to do it that way and not just copy Splinter Cell( and maybe Hitman) for the action part? I remember playing those and thinking that the slower, deliberate style lent itself perfectly for a spy RPG idea, yet AP seems to have ignored a lot of the mechanics that had been polished over 4 games for both series by the time AP was made. The invisibility skill in AP is particularly notorious. Why no light meter ala Splinter Cell that would have worked far better with less dissonance and still would allow for RPG style skill point allocation(be quieter, harder to see etc.) tl;dr didn't anyone notice?


    Sorry if it was asked but among the million pages and the few hundred in the 'summary' I don't know if anyone mentioned AP.

    Since its pretty much axiomatic that cRPGs have nothing to do with real role-playing, MCA was only acting in accordance with these princicples, can't allow P&P influences on the codex

    Damn, I thought the "colossal fuck" and ignore were the same guy. Pretty sure the second one wasn't me. I'll have to read the whoe 200 pages again now.

    You guys are photoshopping memes now? This thread is bizarro Codex. It's as if we were transported into Neogaf all of a sudden.

    In fact it's incredibly disappointing. Codexers proud themselves on the claim that they never compromise toward anyone. And yet, their idol only has to show up and say "Boo!", and now people stop asking any critical questions and say "Hey, just to let you know, I always liked Torment.", uncritically believing how horrible a person Feargus is.

    It's not like he's a doctor or a Nobel-prize winner, quite frankly.
