    Just FYI, there's a Fargo quote somewhere where he talks about what to do with the funds beyond the original demand and tablets are mentioned as a platform.

    :lol: this never gets old. A gamer can't get more stereotypical than that.

    "This is not fun at all"

    "Then why are you playing?"

    "To get the HIGH SCORE!:mad: "




    "A minigame inside a minigame inside a minigame inside a minigame? We have to go derper"

    This is getting prosperian.

    He's got a point. I've been campaigning to add turn based tactical squad combat in the Sims community for a while, but they keep locking my threads for some reason. Why can't they just realise that I'm turned off by their boring and unrealistic cartoon combat? Why can't they see, codex? Why can't they see!

    There's Lover's Bitch for Oblivion. It adds the ability to "tame" wolves and stray dogs and then train them. You can all store them in a kennel. Different dogs have different stats and give different bonuses depending on how much you trained them. There are also some quests, such as training a dog in front of an audience or befriending ten wild wolves. Your dogs even level up and learn new abilities the more they are trained and knotted.

    That's what I heard at least.

    Edit: The forums blooows. I want to write a post that'd get me banned almost every thread. The decline/trollage is strong.

    :D The "That's what I heard at least." puts you in an unflattering light, you yiffster you. "My friend has genital warts, any idea how I- ehhm, he can cure them?"

    something tells me you're deriving some enjoyment from describing this mod in great detail to the codex whenever possible
    I'm on to your shadowy agenda

    Man, I really hope Fargo doesn't pull a George Lucas.

    He's got cozy money ahead of schedule, and he's got a loving fan base...potential for disaster really.

    I hope he's got some 'no men' on the team to slap him around and keep him straight.

    As long as it doesn't pull a Skyrim and have people you walk by tell you to join the mage's college when you're already the arch mage.

    Sounds cool in theory though.

    You're wrong too: root's Warhammer 42k is bigger than Barbarian's Codexian Saga.

    I'm still not sure about this MDF guy. He doesn't seem to be breaking any rules tho.

    Well, this is one of the reasons he brought up himself for getting in touch with NMA (and other fan communities). To help keep em on the straight and narrow.

    At first I thought he was trolling, but I think he might be a kid.

    All his trolling and general silliness aside, this is absolutely right taken out of context like this. See: JA2, Wiz8, X-COM.

    The fucker said that the original wasteland was "full of minigames" (when you use a skill on a tile to achieve some end)... so obviously MDF is a troll. Probably Andhaira again...

    Problem is, you give them an inch and they'll start asking for a foot.

    "ZOMG Y CANT I ROMANCE N CONVINCE HER TO MARRY ME WTF INXILE UNRELAISTIC"

    Idiots cannot into perspective. Some tongue-in-cheek dialogues here and there is fine, but it seems a good number of people in there want you to be able to pimp your spouse. Next they'll be asking for restaurants where you can sip wine and talk on an emotional level. The observation that people are actually specifically asking for this shows what kind of game they want as opposed to what kind of game we want.

    Never entirely discount the possibility of simple stupidity. Still, probably a troll, yeah.

    I wouldn't mind emotional engagement so much if their precious romance would have as much gameplay challenge as killing someone. Really, you have trouble fighting the rats in fallout 1 or getting past the cave of trials but you are definitely relationship master of the universe?

    It's like their brains can't think past 'having this chick fall in love with me after I talk to her three times by clicking on the sexy talk word lines is awesome times for my lonely phallus' and they start pulling out the cognitive dissonance chaff like "better roleplaying means more things to do like girlfriends" and "adding relationships would increase realism and make the world more complex" and "feature inclusiveness" and "rpgs have broadened as a genre".

    I say fuck you very much sir, you just want a cheap and manipulative reason to care about the game and applaud the very people who play you for a rube. You are the sort of person who cannot conceive of rooting for that smart prawn in district nine because they don't have tits for you to be emotional about. When you speak of more options you merely mean the option to have what you want because it made your brain shut down to everything else: virtual tits and dick in your face and this means the game is heaven and not some kind of generic factory-line purgatory you paid the recommended 59.90 for.
