    Avellone's still mad about Obsidian hiring and feedback practices.



    None of the games this guy worked on are renowned for their writing so I'm not sure it was such a great loss. Urquhart and Parker do have terrible taste though.

    I'm confused. Mitsoda was at Obsidian for three years. I thought the reason he was fired was because he screwed up royally on his Alpha Protocol job. Avellone is the one who heavily rewrote Mitsoda's work!

    I think Mitsoda’s departure may have had more to do with personality conflicts between him and Parker.

    These rants are even funnier after Microsoft acquisition. Feargus probably just reads them, then he laughs and then he jumps butt-naked into his vault of Microsoft money, Scrooge McDuck style.

    Parker didn't know what he wanted. Made him rewrite it once, still didn't like it, which resulted in the departure when told to rewrite it again.

    Gold might not be that useful during a collapse, but you supposedly save it if things start to get better, which after that will show its value.

    Chris also retweeded this recently.



    A reference to his own career, perhaps?

    Your butthurt is cute Nick, but shouldn't you be looking for a new job?

    I really doubt Feargus' new bosses will let you back in.

    Fear not, I will fight my way back in. Secret agent Roguey is already on the task to find dirt on all of them. With a little luck and a lot of blackmail, I shall make obsidian great again.

    Guys, guys! Remember that Avellone said that he has more money than he needs and that he is NOT butthurt. Remember the last point.

    AVELLONE IS NOT BUTTHURT.

    We need to make a global bet. Will MCA ever create another masterpiece (or just another gaem) as a lead? If so, when?

    I think personally it is NEVER (30%) or YES, BUT NOT UNTIL 2025 at least. Waddaya think?

    I'm thinking at least 70% never for any AA+ game where he is lead writer or director.

    I am 100% sure that he will never create another masterpiece. He is living his live based on past accomplishment as a narrative consultant and some sort of pedestal marketing gimmick. He is in position of very senior management team in a corporation, someone who gives vague directive for people below to do. Now I am not sure how many money he is making but I am pretty sure it is comfortable enough, especially after Fallen Order gig in EA.

    Chris has never been ultra conservative retard. And really, at this point in time you require mental deficiency to actually root for Trump even for conservative. He is literally using your ideology/belief just to cover his clear abuse of power to profit himself with conservatives retards loving it.

    That pic for MCA should rather reflect his personal aura since he left Obsidian.

    Just remember that an amazing sports player can be mediocre on a shit team if he is mismanaged. Same goes for actors, literally anyone performing.

    Has Avellone ever made any comments on WH40k? I woke up from a dream of a kotor2-esque WH40K game written by him.
