    No, he was right about PoE.

    Anyway, I already own BB but haven't played it since many iterations ago.

    If you have a criminal brother (Thief, Raider, Killer on the Run etc) you may get an event where guards from House X come to take him away. You can fight/bribe/give up. HOWEVER, there is a fourth option: telling them "I'm friends with House X, so fuck off". That's only available IF you have high relations with a particular noble family


    Show Spoiler
    I think, you can also lie to them and tell that bro is dead, because he is scarred and disfigured now and looks nothing like before.

    It helps to bear in mind that no one actually cares what the Codex nor any of its staff and regulars think about computer games—or about anything at all, for that matter. We're stingy, irrelevant old has-beens meriting approximately the same consideration as old men who spend their weekends playing checkers in the food court of a near-abandoned mall featuring only a GNC, a Bath and Body Works, three nail salons, two churches, a Chinese food kiosk, a dark and shuttered JC Penney's, and crippling depression.

    Once you fully internalize this fact, you can learn to be more like our leader DarkUnderlord and give literally not even one single fuck about anything.

    My biggest gripe with this game is the lack of mod support.

    I can see that I must have been mistaken about Infinitron's relevance, because he's deployed an ancient and painfully unfunny Reddit meme. Clearly, this is a man with two fingers on the pulse of the people.

    Well, two can play at that game. I'm still hip!

    Well, that's another trademark roxor review. Tryhard edgelordism meets genuine curiosity and inspection. That said, I've been something of a fan since the EA and I must admit that I came away a bit underwhelmed with the final release. There's just so much of the content that I felt needed for the game to really shine and was always expecting to show up that never made it. There is a lot to love and the whole setting, artstyle, gameplay and especially the battles are top notch. It does however feel a bit ligt. Buildings on the battle maps got cut, indoor areas like dungeons got cut, demon faction got cut, bridges on worldmap and battlemap got cut. All stuff that was shown and did not make it. And for me, that stuff would have made the difference between a flawed gem and a timeless classsic.

    It's a great little game. Just not the amazing piece of incline I was hoping for.
