Gamespot, Feargus and NWN2

Gamespot has yet another brief piece and a video with uncle Feargie ("the Legendary Legend"). Here's a bit of the usual snippage:
We sat down with Obsidian president Feargus Urquhart, who was understandably guarded with details. If nothing else, the studio will attempt to capitalize on the greatest strengths of the original Neverwinter Nights--a game that had both a compelling single-player campaign and powerful editing tools to create custom adventures. But Urquhart added some cryptic remarks about how his own highly experienced staff not only has worked on RPGs for years, but has also played RPGs and observed the "direction in which role-playing games have been heading." Urquhart suggested that in some cases, classic RPGs may have more compelling features than more-modern games that have perhaps gone off in divergent directions.
What's been up with Feargus lately one may ask. Saying all "the right things"(tm), he seems intent on making it harder for people to poke fun at his previous "slam dunks", and if he delivers - hell, I'll have no problem with having to respect him. Bring it on, I say!
