    Good piece of interview, thought Fallout maniacs won't find much new information they didn't read about before. Can't wait for more!

    Too bad that they didn't make SPECIAL more like GURPS. Anyway, interesting interview.

    Except for its wide variety of bad design decisions, poor programming, misguided priorities, weak characterizations, and lazy shortcuts, Fallout 3 is an excellent game. Maybe the best game ever made.

    Ah, a disciple of the Garriott school of thought, and quite a logical one. Once you know what you can do with an engine, design the content around it.

    Excellent interview.

    Laughed when Cain said "I am no businessman"

    They couldn't get the license for a GURPS based cRPG, so they had to cook up their own system, but that was what they were aiming for IIRC.

    Haven't watched this interview yet though. Maybe he says as much.

    A really good interview. It's a shame Tim Cain isn't making RPGs at the moment.

    Shit though, forward to the last few minutes of that 2nd interview and listen to what Tim says. Despite what he's said about having liked the direction Fallout has gone in, you can tell that he really fucking hates having lost Fallout. :(

    I don't understand why they didn't release that demo. Why Tim? Why?


    Tim speaks in code:

    "This is the world I'm used to... But its not my world."

    When I listened to that part I was thinking, "Death to Sales and Marketing!"

    Indeed. Death to Sales and Marketing. All Caine and co need is a business overlord, one that stays omnipresent, yet only steps in directly if things need a prod to keep them focused. It is plain they are decent enough with knowing what consumers want, just needing someone to keep them on the path while doing it.
