    McComb lives in Detroit, so his stint at inXile may have earned him enough to retire on. Wasting away in a $3000 five-bedroom house cutting out endless paper dolls and writing dialogue for them.

    Wasn't it also Colin who pushed for Numenera as he had been involved with it as a tester or something? (I forget, had to purge the brain of those years of hype and excitement which turned into the most disappointing KS I backed)

    Seriously, Fargo propped up Colin quite a lot while was always obvious that Obsidian kept MCA down.

    I'm do not share your beliefs, but I have respect for them.

    So, what left to InXile? Make another Kickstarter to fund paycheck for new writers?

    With the way things seem to be going for inXile they're probably looking to staff different positions in the future. Like liquidation managers.

    We get it, you're buddies with all these people who fucked us raw in the ass and gave us AIDS. I'm sure they're very nice people to you, but that doesn't change the fact they left us bleeding and butt-sore in an alleyway, and it doesn't change the fact it's their fault we're dying of terminal hyper-AIDS.

    On a less acerbic note, a game developer is not a priest. We don't care about their personality, we just care about what they can give us. If the last thing they gave us is trash... well, what can you say? You don't pay the chef for his winning personality.

    It's a somewhat lulzy touch that a casual visitor to this site will see an 'Obsidian developer' giving McComb and TTON both barrels :mixedemotions:

    I'm not entirely sure who would wind up with the better deal in that situation.

    What do you mean "except"? Avellone hasn't done anything good since Torment (Kotor 2 is shit and so are you if you disagree). it's obv avellone is a one hit wonder. his particular obsession with subversion worked out for him then because of the weird setting. It doesn't work in anything else and he hasn't grown as a writer since.
