    Why are you referring to this cum-gargling ode to Sawyer as "gaming journalism" ?? You are giving this waaaay too much credit my friend

    Everything wrong in this text is summarized above.

    (If I want true customization, and not a patchwork system, I play GURPS)

    This last one I'm forced to agree... Wasteland 2, Tides of Numanuma, Tyranny, Siege of Dragonspear, Sword Coast Legends... despite all its failings, Sawyer did deliver A LOT MORE than most of its peers.

    Special kudos for going back, admitting his mistake and adding hard counters after release even with all those sales, while Colin McComb is still like "THESE FIVE PEOPLE ON TWITTER LOVE MY GAME, IT'S A CULT MASTERPIECE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!" even after flopping HARD.

    I mean, I liked PoE, but I just really have to wonder why Infinitron insists on posting so many (positive) re-reviews of PoE.

    Is it just blind fanboyism or what?

    Love PoE, it's biggest flaws to me are:

    1. Crappy load times
    2. No Muilticlassing
    3. Not many non-combat skills

    All of which will be fixed in the sequel of course. Deadfire is gonna come out swinging.

    Whether the combat in 3.0 is substantially better or not with my limited gaming time I have no chance of going back and replaying the entire game and expansion anytime soon.

    The White March part 2 was released in January 2016, the more or less last patch around July of that year. Reviews are for relatively recent releases.

    FFS, you get XP for killing new types of monsters for a while until you "learn" that type to 100%.

    :negative:

    One thing I missed in PoE were recruitable evil characters - those were some of the most interesting in BG2.

    Looks like Luigi is campaigning really hard for an "Ow the edge" tag.

    ITT: People who played only vanilla PoE bitching about a review of PoE 3.0 and White March, which they didn't play.

    There's stuff in the Roxxor review that is simply not true. For example:

    There's actually a bunch of spells in PoE that do this (like Fetid Caress and Mental Binding).

    Or this:

    Yeah, the enemy won't take health away from party member A after they're knocked out; they'll take health from party members B, C, D, E and F instead. And because party member A is knocked out and not able to help, the enemy is going to have more time to damage the rest of the party (my characters also got afflictions when they were knocked out, but maybe that's new).

    Seems most Codexers played the game on the lower difficulties where they didn't even have to pay attention to these things. Even the Roxxor review said he was playing it on hard.
