    He posts on RPGCodex and lives in an actual cave. I'm pretty sure he's sincere.

    So apparently he believes he has superior Neanderthal DNA. Hence the use of "sapiens" as an insult. No I am not making this up.

    RationalWiki has a decent TL;DR of his blog for those who aren't quite brave enough to plumb its depths. Not to mock mental illness, I've certainly had my own share of issues, but he seems proper nuts. He also seems very excited about the prospect of an apocalypse, whether it comes from nuclear holocaust, supervolcanoes, or Hillary Clinton.

    Yeah, I know you're not. I've seen it elsewhere before. It all stems from the idea that Neanderthals had larger skulls, and thus, [I]obviously[I], had more highly developed brains. It's all just more pseudoscientific bullshit for the race realist contingent to cling on to.

    Thought the greatest irony is that the people who espouse this theory also tend to be hardline Social Darwinists. Make of that what you will.

    I think he needs to work on his pricing. I would have maybe tried it for 10 or 15 bucks.

    All drama and political intrigue aside, is it a fun game?

    If you want to try it, that's what the Super Demo (god, the cringe is real) is for.

    Very much, if you liked Wizardry VI/VII, or other fiddly, hard 1990s CRPGs.

    I stumbled upon this in my Steam discovery queue. Oh lordy, the user reviews are savage!
    http://store.steampowered.com/app/65...nged_Exemplar/

    i needed to learn some hocus pocus to get this game to work on my laptop. I got half of my problems solved from a helpful gent on the forum but nobody wanted to give me the time of day on my second half of my problem. I waited over a week with no answer so i got a refund. Im no good with this scienceolegy stuff.

    Some of the "Recommended!" reviews are so negative I really think Steam needs to rethink its "Recommended/Not Recommended" system.

    Somehow, I'm not surprised that the guy who spent 20 odd years programming The Ultimate Oldschool RPG while living in a fallout shelter has suddenly gone overly possessive, and is now banning people who dare have the temerity to report bugs in his Perfect Game.

    It's kind of a shame, really. From what I'm reading, if it had spent a decent amount of time in beta testing, and the author's ego didn't keep getting in the way, it'd apparently be a good game.

    I can't believe the guy wants $40 for this POS.

    It is the greatest game of its style made since the original Wizardry VII (1992). It has a target audience of, well, maybe four hundred people, but for them, it truly lives up to its reputation. It is a game with depth, wit, and genuine charm. It is a flawed masterpiece in an age of perfectly polished tedium.

    Well worth the brouzouf.
