    No. And there shouldn't be, that's not discussing WL2 as much as just mocking other companies. Besides, BioWare and Bethesda CONSTANTLY get brought up as examples of doing it wrong in various thread, so I think it's clear enough.

    Well, yeah, I was mostly joking, but who really decides what's a bad idea and what not?

    And how about a "No minigames of any kind" thread? That there yet? Do InXile consider them a bad idea or not?

    Yes. Been and gone.

    Dunno if inXile likes em. I doubt it. Never once heard em brought up as an interesting mechanics, and the draft of the Vision Doc I have doesn't mention 'em.

    Yes I think InXile gets the fact that the majority of Wasteland 2 backers are trying to avoid the whole Bethesda and Bioware mass appeal direction. People are still fretting it seems. Still.

    Anyway, Brian spends lots of time on twitter but with lack of updates so I take it the 'crunch' time hasn't started yet?

    That's great! Now leak the document, plz.

    Also, if you removed the thread about child killing, you could remove the one about gay characters as well. It's the same kind of pointless crap.

    Crunch is in a few months, when design is locked down. They're having regular meetings now, thinking up locations, writing out the vision doc, discussing and fabbing screenshots, look of the game, etc. They want to get details nailed down so the main design process isn't iterative, as iterative design is very time-consuming.

    Fargo's job is kind of halfway between producer and PR, so he'll spend quite a bit of time doing PR stuff like social media and interviews. That just means the designers can focus on designing, so it's all good.

    It's a good philosophy, that if there's stuff you absolutely hate, and are unsure what to do in some arbitrary situation, just do the exact opposite than what the focus of the dislike is/does.

    inXile decides what ideas are bad. Not the community.

    Hah.

    I didn't. Some inXile dev felt it got thoroughly out of hand and was no longer useful, so they removed it. I didn't touch it.

    Color me surprised if you can't do that with sports games already.

    Those are fanmade. Fargo says no screens for at least a couple of weeks, mostly likely.

    They're close to what he showed me in camera angle, though WL2 will likely be a bit closer/more detailed.

    Well I hope W2 is less detailed/more regular than that concept art because I sure don't want to play a hidden object game.

    In a year and a half or so, we shall see. In the meantime we have grandpappy potatoes.

    I hope and sort of expect it to be a nice isometric angled view. Yep. That's what I'm hoping for. A view.
