    IGN seem to have served as the official streamers for this year's Gamescom, broadcasting daily with a German language stream in the noon and the regular American crew in the evening. Over the course of the week there were disappointingly few RPGs to be seen, despite the large number of such titles currently in development. Only on Friday did a few of them show up, starting with the appearance of Wasteland 3 in the German IGN stream. Brian Fargo and Tim Campbell don't speak German, so you may want to skip the parts where the host translates what they're saying:


    Two smaller RPGs showed up in the English stream later during the day - the recently announced steampunkish turn-based tactical RPG Dark Envoy and the Dragon Age: Origins-inspired historical time travel RPG The Waylanders which was successfully crowdfunded last year. For both titles, it's an opportunity to premier their first significant gameplay footage. Also, the Waylanders guys have finally admitted that Chris Avellone is working for them.


    In other news, there were a few more previews of the Wasteland 3 alpha build published over the week, at IGN, COGconnected, Expansive, and Gaming Target. But there's not much need for that when we can see the gameplay ourselves. I know there were more RPGs at Gamescom than just the few we saw in these public events. Hopefully we'll hear about them later on.

    Everything looks average at best.

    We are fucked. Last year there were a couple of surprises but it looks like we will have to wait a couple of years for another good rpg.

    I like how now he stopped even pretending to care about the roleplaying part of the game. When he was asked what he did with Microsoft's money first, he goes: "we upped the graphics".

    'k Brian. Thanks.

    The guy in the Waylanders video thumbnail looks very romance-able.

    I liked Tower of Time a lot - probably because there was no expectation at all.
    But I quickly loose interest, when I see gameplay, represented through woman character.
    It's advertasing, it mean it should somehow interst me. And in this case it is not.

    It's not like if you have a game that's 70% done and then get some cash you're going to use it to improve the roleplaying systems. Why would you even need money for that? Of course they're gonna use it on expensive stuff like graphics of voice acting.

    inXile have been talking about how you can convince Victory to join you and the consequences that'll have, so it's not true they're ignoring roleplaying. Also, 4:35 in the video.
