    The "comparison" in question is a brief, throwaway observation that in addition to their focus on choice & consequence, both games feature similar "pre-medieval" settings. That seems like a fairly noncontroversial statement to me, one that has been repeated by many. I don't know why those three gentlemen find it so alarming.

    You know that's enough for the codex. As soon as Lurker King is summoned it's game over. :M

    If you're quoting the review now, we should at least discuss the full quote:

    Coming from somebody who has not played AoD, this seems too strong a statement. No matter if you agree with the sentiment or not, game reviewers should only compare games they have played.

    I played AoD afterTyranny, and I'm thankful to Tyranny just for that. I can't wait to read the review.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Sorry, I think that's just weird. The basic nature of a game's setting is something you can pick up on Wikipedia. You don't need to have played it at all. But now that we're in public, Prime Junta can make up his own mind about this.

    Reviewers shouldn't make judgments about a game's "attention to world-building, story branching, choice, and consequence" based on what they read on wikipedia. When I read such a statement, I expect the reviewer to actually have played the game they are talking about. I don't know why you don't recognize that as a problem.

    Well, I figured you didn't care about it so much since you're a member of our private conversation with him and you didn't bother to post anything there. +M

    I'm only in that conversation because you wanted me to give Prime Junta a free key :M

    You're his editor, I'm an outside contributor. It seemed appropriate to try to discuss the matter with you before telling him to change something.

    Hahaha, let's not speak about propriety.

    Anyway, nothing left to do now but wait.

    Fair enough. But sooner or later we're likely to have that conversation in public.

    I put in that sentence because after due consideration I thought it would be unfair to VD to not acknowledge that he had, in fact, attempted massively branching narrative, in a similar world no less. If you Bubbles think that's a controversial statement, or something that requires deeper knowledge than having followed the development of AoD here and the many threads about it, then go fuck yourself with a chainsaw.

    Edit: Also Bubbles you pencildick, why didn't you ask me directly about it in the thread you were participating on? Do you have to hide behind Infinitron or the rest of the Codex staff for that?

    When I find out that a reviewer willingly publishes a judgment about a game he hasn't played, he becomes totally discredited in my eyes. I honestly thought you were better than this.

    Why would you decide to suck VD's dick halfway into a Tyranny review? At least give examples in your comparison paragraph or something. Don't just name drop a popular game for the sake of it.
    AoD is overrated shit btw.

    Nothing left to do but to respect PrimeJunta's final wishes, then. The sentence stays.

    I assume that comment about the staff means he blames you and Crooked Bee for this?

    I hope you'll publish his review soon :M
