    I'm not so convinced about that.

    Torment is one of those games where existing fans are p vocal so that people hanging in certain communities might think how it and Avellone are far bigger than they are, and where it is fashionable for everyone else to put into Best Ever lists regardless of whether or not they have played it.

    Do you see them using him as marketing? The only reason people know he's involved is because he tweeted about it.

    But it won't hurt them, obviously.

    I don't. It was more in answer to people commenting that will do little if anything of game's writing, which implies that he is there as a "guest star" (and IMO he really isn't that much of a brand to be used for something like that in a AAA game of this caliber).

    I just hope it's more than just a gimmicky collaboration.

    Yeah, pretty sure that nobody knows him outside of RPG communities :)
    In these hours I'm posting on a lot of forums, and in Prey topics there are many people who knows this "Avellone" guy, though.
    Then again, his presence isn't for big marketing purposes. Just look at the most important videogame sites, almost everyone reported this information, but you won't find it in the home page, as if he was Kojima or Miyamoto.

    Heh, i like how everybody wants Avellone to have some minor involvement in their game in order to generate hype by association, as you say, but nobody wants to have him as their lead writing man.

    BTW, better Prey than any Fallout. Having Avellone work on any in-house Bethesda game would be like having Shakespeare write for a Michael Bay film. There's nothing to be gained in sticking a couple of precious pebbles in a giant turd. Also, this game is going to use id Tech 6, right? No Gamebryo shit i hope.

    ^Probably that Void engine (just like Dishonored 2) which is apparently based on id Tech 6.

    And yeah, better Arkane that one of Bethesda Fallout/TES teams. At least this way there is a chance that his writing will be attached to actually good game.

    Eh, I'm really not getting that reference and the comments aren't at all helping. What's it about? Something related to ye olde "press X for awesome", or something that requires lotsa points dumped into GAF Lore stat in order to be funny?

    He's wanted to work on something like System Shock for quite a while now. Dead Money was Dead Space: Fallout DLC Edition.

    Nope, the space ship is open and they allow you to backtrack from new areas to old ones so for this alone it will better than Infinite Shit.

    MCA brought me here.

    I've only seen the trailer and it looked like a shitty space jump scare shooter.

    tl;dr Is this anything more than Dead Space Infinite?

    Except Void Egine is based on idTech 5.

    According to this, Arkane Austin has licensed the CryEngine in 2013:
    https://www.destructoid.com/arkane-studios-is-making-its-next-game-with-cryengine-264843.phtml

    Not sure whether that still holds true or whether they made a switch.
