Tacticular Cancer: We'll have your balls

  1. It has come to this administration's attention that brofists are divisive, and encourage the formation of agenda-based brofist cliques. The RPGCodex strives to provide a welcoming forum experience for all fans of the genre, and brofists are hindering this mission's success. In light of this, brofist functionality has been removed so as to create a new, better, Codex browsing experience.

    We further advise our members not to attempt circumvention of this removal by reverting to the old and just as divisive method of creating empty posts of "+1" and "what he said." Such posts only seek to further a culture of exclusion where select users may end up feeling discomfort or emotional trauma. These posts will be considered spam and thus a banable offense. The Codex administration seeks to provide a safe and secure posting environment where the needs of the minority outweigh the needs of the agenda-reproducing majority.
  2. Welcome to rpgcodex.net, a site dedicated to discussing computer based role-playing games in a free and open fashion. We're less strict than other forums, but please refer to the rules.

    I have heard of it. Saw it on GamersGate (along with Eye of the Dragon) awhile back, but decided to pass on them. I seem to recall both of them striking me as something that would probably have no real depth.

    It has some depth. Read the Wikipedia article if you're curious, they have a good summary. The game can be fun to play with friends, playing it SP is pretty stupid.

    Now that is really the epitome of doublespeak when wanting for the developers to make another shitty copypasta of Modern Warfare or Gears of War equates "differentiating your game from the competition"

    Probably will pass on it then. Not a big fan of multiplay when it is not in person with people I know.

    The unique selling proposition = new skin for Modern Warfare.

    It just means that they are clinically insane people.

    I don't begrudge them, they're running a business, and selling rehashed versions of essentially the same product is profitable as far as rate of return is concerned, that is, until the retarded public wakes up. The fault is with the consumer buying crappy games. Let's be honest, true cRPGs are and will continue to be a niche market, the future for them is indie.
