    Tags: Chris Avellone; InXile Entertainment; Obsidian Entertainment; Project Eternity; Wasteland 2

    Obsidian Entertainment's Chris Avellone recently gave a "Design Master Class" at the Game Connect Asia Pacific conference. While there, he was interviewed by Player Attack's Jessica Citizen about Project Eternity and Wasteland 2.


    While there's nothing really new in it, the interview does offer an interesting glimpse into MCA's weekly routine. Chris also has a few things to say about the mainstream viability of old school RPGs. Personally, I would have assumed that even one million copies sold would not be enough to really attract publishers' attentions.

    Do we really want to attract the publishers' attention? That's like invoking Cthulhu, I mean, look at Ultima.

    Both giggle a lot. Maybe Chris is gettin' some tonight. Or maybe they got high before the interview started.

    So he thinks there are people who would pay over 10k. Must be nice to be able to drop that much money on a video game.

    She's not quite rock star quality but not a bad score for a glorified dungeon master.

    I wonder if something along the lines of, "So, Planescape: Torment. All me," works at bars?

    There were multiple 10K donations, so he appears to be correct.

    I hate the fact that the disgusting skank is there, throwing her vicious female fluids all over MCA.

    I like this interviewer-chick, it's not the classic FPS-gaming-journanist-reading-IS-THA-HARD-bimbo...
    As for the interview: meh, just more PR

    Yeah she seems nice and well-informed (she's not dandy as candy at least). Go for it MCA! Interview wasn't interesting except for the chick.

    Such a threesome-thought-inducing video warms the cockles.

    Strange coincidences: Both MCA and the Toddler went to the same university at the same time and both of them are short.

    even if you are all so god damn deprived watching that stupid cow does something nice to your imagination, where is your sense ?
    I do not idolise the man, but i respect him, he MAKES what i play...he has to respect me back, as a consumer, as his intended target audience..usually that entails my maintaining a certain level of intellectual standing..when i focus on his cool t shirt (it's nice, i like blue too) and on that cow, when my comments derive from a 15 year old mentality, ooo, tits!111!1, what's that saying..respect my views? I am a Codexian?

    lol guys..
    enjoy family guy, the simpsons rpg, or whatever is next
