    DU has spoken about running a fundraiser for RTwP crap:

    So, here it is, the poll to determine whether the Codex will officially endorse RTwP crap with Steam DRM or not.

    EITHER PICK THE CLOSEST AMOUNT OR PICK THE LAST OPTION AND POST HOW MUCH YOU WOULD DONATE

    Also, DarkUnderlord, I suggest a sticky and a link from the main page.

    If we get to do a fundraiser, I also suggest that those who voted for an amount but didn't actually donate be banned unless he's The Brazilian Slaughter.

    Ahhhhh, shit. Clicked on wrong number. $250 instead of $25.

    So, I'd donate $25.

    I am willing to cough up additional 20 bucks to advance Codexia fair but after that I and my bank account are done. Literally.

    Well what do you know, DU being an awful cunt again.

    I really haven't the faintest idea why Wasteland 2 would be considered a superior project, since it was equally vague, but with a developer with no considerable track record.

    Wasteland 2 vs Project Eternity:

    • TURN-BASED
    • A clear vision of the game in regard to mainstream
    • No-DRM shit
    • Stretch goal: Mod tools
    • Stretch goal: More designers for more content
    • More sensible pledge rewards
    • No exclusive game content
    • Kick It Forward

    VS.

    • RTwP CRAP
    • Generic fantasy crap with Elf faggotry and all that
    • Steam DRM with a distinct lack of non-DRM option
    • No mod tools promised
    • Stretch goal: races and classes and a companion
    • Stretch goal: races and classes and a companion
    • Stretch goal: a companion
    • Stretch goal: house
    • Shit rewards
    • Not Kicking It Forward

    Ahem... I think it's clear why WL2 was/is superior. Even the stretch goals for PE sound like DLC mods for Bethesda games.

    Arcanum had turn-based tactical combat. It was shit, incidentally. Now, I'm convinced this Fargo fellow will deliver an excellent combat system, but then again, I'm not.

    If having to install Steam is a big concern you really, really need to get your priorities straight. :?

    Dude, I understand that some people might not be big fans of fantasy games, that's cool and all, but this is an MCA game for Christ's sake. A fantasy setting is the whole bloody point!

    Before I answer that, what I want to know is: is it possible to donate anonymously?
    The reason I ask is because the codex doesn't want to be associated with someone like me (drug lord in south america).


    Also, FYI, Obsidian told they would be adding a new 5,000$ tier. Let's wait for what they have to show.

    I'd like to see the Codex represented as some nefarious group of villains (with trannies and troll members too) with some devious plans.
    The player could then help them accomplish their goals (eg: take over a town) or kill them all.


    But yes, I also don't understand DU's difference of opinion between W2 and PE.

    I'll pitch in $25, but only if an agreement with Obsidian is reached that will allow me a copy of the game too. Otherwise I'd rather support the kickstarter directly.

    Except, for obvious reasons, mod tools would be thoroughly useless in a game based on quality writing and not on groundbreaking gameplay mechanics. Novels don't come packaged with a word editor either.

    You are telling us that you would put more faith in a studio led by Feargus and their implementation of RTwP. And we all saw NWN2 + expansions. It's highly unlikely they will go create something wild and deep. It will most likely be some DND derivative shit, possibly with MMO-influenced crap like in DA:O.

    Compared to that, the promise of a part-based TB by "this Fargo fellow" is a godsend.

    Telling other people what they are and they aren't entitled to be concerned with: yeah, just what The Brazilian Slaughter needs.

    It's the severe lack of at least some details other than "WERE DOING GENERIC FANTASY OLOLOLO".

    You forgot to add in your comparison that you could get W2 for 15$, while soon, you won't be able to get Project Eternity for less than 25$...

    The poll meets the requirements for forming an idea about whether running a fundraiser is worth it and that's all that matters here among us (that includes The Brazilian Slaughter).

    You sound butthurt, FYI. A single option that hurts your sensibilities shouldn't damage your reason so.

    No, the options are fine. I'm talking about the fact that you're shitting up this topic with YOUR butthurt about "RTWP CRAP".

    A more ignorant opinion couldn't have been uttered. Congratulations.

    I'm just trying to be easy on Obsidian cocksuckers like The Brazilian Slaughter.

    Really? Because I could read it this way...

    Wasteland 2 - less new content for your money, modders relied on to fix brokenness and make the game a reasonable size and length, lack of connection to the contributors so Fargo's colossal ego can drive the project into the ground, turn-based means shitty Pokemon combat, fucking Unity shit means game will be designed for the iPad, lack of DRM means nobody will buy it and the game will fail financially, hiring more designers as stretch goals means inXile can't afford enough talent, worked on by nobody of consequence except MCA, etc.

    Project Eternity - based on tried and true Infinity Engine gameplay loved by millions, fantasy used as a stepping stone for interesting characters and stories (we don't even know if there will be goddamn elves and dwarves in it), not to mention will probably be a subversion or otherwise extremely original take on fantasy, Steam DRM will bring exclusive community features, achievements, cloud saving and more sales, stretch goals mean more and more and more content as fans give more money, no "kicking it forward" means more money will go into the game itself, no less than three legendary RPG designers lending their talents...

    Wasteland 2 - uses shitty Unity casual game engine that needs to be modified for an RPG
    Project Eternity - uses elite RPG engine developed by experts over more than half a decade

    Okay then how about this:

    Wasteland 2: Chris Avellone + a shitload of other names + Mark Morgan

    Project Eternity: Just Chris Avellone.

    Therefore, WL2 > PE :troll:

    As of today, not going to vote. Just need some more clarifications on their stretch goals. The pandering to BIODrones (companions/race) amd a player house is retarded, MORE stuff added to the game, extending the game/world/content is money way better spent (like most of the W2 stretch goals).

    Will wait for further clarification.

    :hmmm:

    W2 will be on Steam too.

    Donation money won't go into Kicking it Forward, but profits after the game is sold.

    Be more careful with your trolling next time. Otherwise it's ok. :3/5:
