    Am I blind or there's no mention whatsoever of the SJW propaganda? Is Codex just another reddit now where such things are deem normal?

    Well, when I pointed about that in review on Tyranny, nobody except me told it.
    So it seems you are right, this shit is swallowed without a word.
    Actually I was called a facist when I told that question to representative of another culture - different people and different race - about "what kind of music do your people like" is absolutely normal.
    So looks like it is mixed bag.

    That, plus I just didn't want to go off on a tangent about the politics of the game. There's so much else wrong with it that that's pretty far down the list. Mine at least.

    You can also get Tatoo of the joining from Fell after helping Corvus and Katrina, which invokes Friends spell regardless of class. Goes with limited number of charges, though.

    Replace emperor with empress and I think it's truly a Codex experience.

    Actually agree with our Librul here; Nuenemara is so lame and boring and nobody cares about SJW there; you want to poke fun at SJW go to our Androgena threads; the Biowhore game is so ham fisted about White Knighting the women folks from evul rapey male player gaze by making all females Oblivion level potato faces it red-pills even womyn and normies... and its so bad actually fun to at-least rage about it. +M

    The comparison is insulting to CYOA books. They have more gameplay and better writing than ToN.

    Didn't play Early Access, so the Anachoic Lazaret was the first moment I realised how frustratingly unfinished the game is. No CRPG mechanics have been fully realised outside text-delivered C&C. It's so lazy.

    Yes. The items are the same thing. You find a bunch of chirurgical upgrades with cool descriptions such as artificial eyeball, numenera analyzer, blood nanites, encroaching darkness, etc., but they only give you more points in stats. It's disapointing as fuck. That’s the price you pay for bad management, serial production of kickstarters, and console ports. Sorry Stalin, but quantity has not a quality all its own.

    Indeed. The underutilised/pointless items are the icing on the cake, it's was so obvious brutal cuts were made late in development. McComb must really hate ANY strategy outside dialogue, which is more trial-and-error than tactics anyway.

    I wonder if Fargo felt Wasteland 2 was too tactically heavy, thus stifled Torment. Guess we'll never know, they're more concerned with saving face than honesty - now that they have a publisher :argh:

    You'll have to give Brian Fargo 2.5 million dollars first.

    Great review, thanks! I can't stand mediocre or bad writing, superficial choices and clumsy controls (in games) nowadays, unless there is some pretty good gameplay at some point down the line. Doesn't look like it here.
