    Okay, so, what, is this a game for kids? I'm not sure how well that well work since 6 year olds don't have money, but if it's not for us actual people, well, they can make what they want, right?

    Sawyer is now a bureaucrat. Soon he will get fat, smug, and spend most of his time giving boring game talks.

    Kids who play video games don't actually play games for kids, that's hardly even a genre anymore ever since edutainment games died out a while ago.

    ...so what is this, then? Why is this important and why does anyone care? I seem to be missing something.

    Parents buy their kids' games for them. You don't remember?

    Nintendo's still going strong, isn't it?

    Good point, but I was under the impression that only adults play Nintendo games.

    Funny the like/dislike ratio on Obsidian's channel is not as bad (currently 1.7K / 0.6K) from the beginning: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4B5iOh1mB8

    Only hardcore Xbox fans dislike it? Probably we were CodeX all along.

    No, I don't. In MY day, we didn't have games, we had to play with jagged metal and broken glass, and then they took our metal away for the war effort. AND WE LIKED IT. I don't buy MY kids ANYTHING, they can go murder it in the woods like *I* did.

    They're making another movie, so Brennecke got right in on the ground floor of this nostalgia zeitgeist. Chance of Obsidian actually having a hit here rising. :lol:

    I used to think kids are a taboo in games. The mods could be .. something else.

    It seems Obsidian is not as loyal to its new owner as inXile. :cool:

    Huh. This will be the first proper Early Access game from Obsidian (PoE1 & 2 betas were a kind of Early Access but were never available for sale on Steam).
