    Your repeated restatement of the same point (that I am retarded) makes your "winning" of the "argument" even more humbling.
    I consider myself duly pwned.

    Yeah, that's exactly the feeling I get. Except for Roxor who was on a crusade against the game even before it launched.

    PoE is so thin it can pass between two closely parked cars.

    Blaine spent 1000 bucks on Wasteland 2? Why? :lol:

    And Lady Error have you played MMX: Legacy? It's very good, and superior to Wasteland 2

    From the review:

    To sum up:

    - unbalanced stats, disconnected skills
    - simplistic combat system relying on HP bloat and more powerful weapons
    - non-existent AI
    - rare skill checks
    - simplistic filler quests
    - useless junk in containers

    In other words, a fitting and faithful sequel to Wasteland delivering more of the same. Buy it if you loved Wasteland and want to party like it's 1987. Don't buy it if you expect a game like Fallout or JA2.

    I assume you weren't a fan of Wasteland or never played it.

    Nothing less than 15/10 would do it justice.

    When did the characterization of VD change from "the guy who hates every game" to "the guy who loves every game"?

    Not necessarily saying you're contradicting yourself, but at least post the link to your review when you're cherry-picking so we can cherry-pick back ;). http://www.rpgcodex.net/content.php?id=9686

    Well, you see, me and 800 other people who voted for WL2 (but clearly it's just me) have failed the Codex (represented by a few individuals who absolutely hated WL2). Some went as far as to claim that WL2 getting all them votes is my fault too.

    So these same individuals, who are responsible for voting BG into the Codex Hall of Fame, are very upset that PoE isn't as awesome as the shitty BG games. I mentioned that it's better than BG, which caused massive butthurt but everyone knows that BG is 10/10 and nothing can beat the perfection.

    WL2 is very very good. It's just that PoE is much better.

    Probably not, simply because the older games were made by passionate gamers for gamers, while todays game's are made for casuals.

    This thread is now about WL2.

    I enjoyed it much more than I enjoyed PoE system. Doesn't change the fact that it's unbalanced and the stats are disconnected.

    Where is the contradiction? The system itself is very simple and it had to be mentioned to let people know that if they're looking for complexity, they should look elsewhere. The fact that it doesn't rely on complex mechanics is fairly damning in itself, but they do manage to set up pretty cool fights that I enjoyed (which is more than can be said about PoE).

    Shit, son, you don't know how to read or what?

    Diablo 3 also has a large variety of enemies but shitty AI. Basically, WL2 shows how to do more with less. PoE shows how to do less with more. Instead of relying on AI or special abilities, WL2 enemies get weapons that determine their roles and pose different threats to you.

    IIRC, I was talking about dialogue skills.

    The game does have unprecedented reactivity (again, much better than PoE) and tons of choices, but overall the quest design is fairly simplistic and uninspiring (few exceptions apply).

    Yeah, BG was a hardcore RPG, especially compared to the casual shite like Realms of Arkania, Wizardry, and Darklands.
