    What did you expect from mostly moronic gaming journalists of large gaming sites?

    Post this kind of stuff on the BTE. And you should provide links so we can see if he at least gets flamed by some righteous soul in response.

    But fuck it, I guess it's okay to have it here too. I didn't realize it was a direct response to a news item about the Vision Document.

    Yes I have, and I didn't see any attempts at forced humor with clown gangs... :?

    Yeah.

    But W1 had some really retarded shit too, so I'm not exactly raging over this. Could have done without it, though.

    I thought in W1 there were hicks with shotguns and monstrous clowns already. :? I just hope that they don't overdo it. I like Fallout 1 in terms of story, humor, and world alot more than F2 with it's attempts at humor. So you can say I'm a seriousness-fag. :smug: Subtle dark humor like I said in F1 is good.

    Which is what I said.

    Point is: Fargo thinks killer clown gangs are funny.

    I thought they were bizarre, and unsettling, not an attempt at humor. If he really thinks it's funny, and intends to put in shit like that as an attempts to humor, someone should rectify it and tell him in the name of the Codex and fans.

    Well, I have printed it and was reading on the train on my way home from work - then, behold, the person next to me asked "good game?"

    And there it was, my own chance to spread word about the decline, and the rebirth of RPGs - I educated him on W2 still being in development, a sequel to a classic from 20 years back.. when he asked "are they working on in it their spare time?" I felt pity for his soul, for the sacrilege would not be forgotten. But I explained the budget, the planned release date, the fact that a game like that could no longer be made these days through normal channels.. I was crying manly tears on the inside for I was doing the work of incline.

    At the end, I thought about giving him the documents, but I did not know the dude well enough to share my fapping material with.

    this must be how activists feel when they engage in dialog with the common man

    I see you purposely avoided asking him what rpgs he likes

    Bros, you don't get it. MCA is afraid of clowns, that's why he is forced to work on them, that's why they are in the game. No joke.

    To tell the truth, I don't know about the other designers, but the humor in wasteland did remind me of Tunnels and Trolls a bit, so maybe Fargo isn't the culprit here. That said, I did like the wild atmosphere of the game, so I won't really mind if they do the same type of stuff in the second one.

    C'mon now, isn't MCA going to be doing a good chunk of the writing/designing? Bad jokes and writing are about the only thing I'm not worried about on this project.

    Not sure about writing.

    Mark: I imagine things have been pretty exciting for you now that you’re going to be involved in Wasteland 2. Can you tell us a bit of what you’ll be doing and what kind of role you might be playing in its development?

    Chris: I’m doing a bunch of things so far, more than I expected. I’m helping with the vision doc, designing opening areas and the area design process, and helping build templates for dialogues and area specs. My contribution isn’t nearly as much as Fargo, Findley, Keenan and the rest of the inXile team, however.

    When not doing physical design, I offer feedback and critiques and forward any random tidbits and elements I’ve dug out of my latest Wasteland 1 playthrough (“Remember when there used to be a West Germany?” “Hey, Reagan had a hover tank named after him!” “Needles used carrier pigeons as their communications center?!”).

    Overall, I’m at inXile about 1.5-2 days during the week, either in design meetings, checking out Unity, or typing away on my headphones, and I love it.

    The clown gangs are perhaps a reference to Fountain of Dreams- the "other" Wasteland 2.
    It was kinda crappy. Same engine, and hellishly unforgiving.

    edit: Lookalike engine, made from scratch.

    The prologue with the meteors is kinda derpy, since meteors hitting tons of satellites doesn't make much sense. Did they have it that detailed in the original? I remember it not saying what caused the satellite blackout, I preferred it that way, it's not like your squad would know the exacts either (if anyone did).

    It's the story from original. I.E. it's the story of Wasteland post apoc setting and how it came to be.
