    Chris Avellone you were one of founders of Obsidian. I always tought that you had power, as a founder, to rule the staff, show the cards on the table and prevent this kind of situations. As a founder, you had no power at all?

    I...don't get the joke. But I guess at 3 AM maybe I'm not supposed to.

    My interlocutors are right however, please continue.

    He's spilling the beans and going all out, so doesn't need to be asked about NV specifically. Same as you don't need to be asked to shill post news.

    Oh, Infinitron, the joke is simple: That you report the news, as your unfortunate profile tag claims, which always make me wince when I see your claim. C'mon, don't be ridiculous. You are so biased, we can't even see you through the glare, but embrace it: It's part of your charm.

    EDIT: I really mean this. I love Infinitron's comments, but it's not news, it's just... Infinitron. Change your profile tag, bud.

    It really is charming. I refuse to back away from my stance. If you take anything, don't take my Infinitron.

    Well, this is a first.

    I'm not a hater, Avellone. I've said several times that you are an order of magnitude more talented than other writers, including the other writers at Obsidian typically considered "good". I do feel compelled to push back against groupthink - sorry if that ruins something for you.

    Monty Markland did something similar to this to inXile not long ago. He seemed unwell (and disappeared shortly thereafter). I hope you aren't.

    What the hell is happening here?

    And, most important, why MCA is not working on Black Geyser?

    When I woke up this morning, I never thought that this will the the highlight of my day. This thread is incredible. I wonder what made Chris drop this bomb right now? I mean, he was hinting about having problems with Obsidian's management before, but telling this story suddenly is very much unexpected. Maybe he had enough of being silent? Or this Codex interview triggered something inside of him?

    Infinitron is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a Jew, shill, sellout, paperboy, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him biased and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: "I've been found out."

    Between engaging in everyone's favorite pastime of criticizing Obsidian/PoE and questioning Infinitron's journalistic integrity, Chris Avellone has become the poster child for the ideal Codexer.

    I fully expect him to file a complaint with DarkUnderlord once Infinitron inevitably starts moving/merging his posts to other topics.

    Last night: huh, great interview, 6 pages of comments. That should be interesting.
    Next day: All right, let's see if they reach 10 already...
