Man, I really enjoyed this game. Totally hilarious, decent gameplay -- I felt a little dirty killing hobos, but whatevs.
I've seen people discuss the gameplay at great length, as well as the humour. All I've seen regarding the story is that it's "solid." This repeated mentions of a "solid story" are driving a tiny pin of burning hot magma into my skull, and I find that the only way to relieve the pressure is to press for further inquiry.
"Solid story?" Really? You spend most of the game wandering aimlessly, looking for... something having to do with robots. Your ultimate objective is clear, though: we are gonna get those goddam robots. Seriously -- some robots gonna die here. Then, suddenly, in the last 10% of the game, it's like -- no wait, mimes. Mimes are the problem here. Also there's a god that you hear about for the first time immediately before you fight it. What does this have to do with the robots? What robots? What are you talking about? Who said anything about robots?
Seriously, I'm having flashbacks to Dreamfall here. It's not pretty.
Don't get me wrong, the individual vignettes are good. I enjoyed exploring the Shithole, and my adventures into urinology. Maybe that's what people mean by a "solid story." But in the parlance of normal folk, a series of clever but disjointed scenes do not a robust narrative make.
Am I wrong? Am I crazy?
