    With all these rainbow colours and questionable humour, it's pretty obvious they're going for that WoW kooky D:OS2 vibe.

    Not with that art direction it's not. The only thing missing in those screenshots is Mickey Mouse riding on a pink unicorn.

    You find the direction in this photo bad? We have different tastes I guess. Looks great to me
    Granted not all screenshots are like this one though

    Mate, the entire live audience at E3 consists of shills. And even they were so stunned by that awful trailer, they forgot to clap and cheer like they are paid for. So this might not be the right time to have a talk about about differing tastes.

    The trailer is horrible and the screenshots are vomiting rainbows. If I didn't know what WL3 was supposed to be, I would have no idea what am I even looking at.

    Somebody at InXile is tripping balls.

    I liked the conversation test a hell of a lot more than the trailer.

    One of the current industry metas is more colors = better. Of course, that is absolutely imbecilic. These fuckers forgot the craft of making games and don't know what art direction is.

    After that trailer I'm real worried about the tone. It seems to be a continuation of a trend I've been extremely frustrated with lately where everything has to mimic Marvel/Borderlands/Deadpool quippy reddit-tier humor and it fucking sucks. This happened to that Justice League movie when Joss Whedon took over, this is going to happen with the X-Men franchise now that it's part of the MCU. This happened with RAGE and Fallout. Nothing can be tonally dark anymore. Not even post apocalyptic shit apparently.

    You beat me to the punch. Everything these days apparently has to be infantile, nothing can be serious or adult anymore.

    Is this really a massive departure in tone from 2? I picked the “raised in a circus” perk in 2 and the game ignored my character design and replaced it with a clown costume.

    >We like juxtapositions

    The plural is very rarely used so I'd assume he probably doesn't know what that word means.

    It’s not like Wasteland 2 was dark. Besides, I doubt the trailer reflects anything about the actual game. Fargo just doesn’t believe people will buy his RPGs if they’re marketed as such, and he has a tin ear when it comes to promotion. I’m betting no one at inXile liked this trailer, but they thought it’s what stupid normies would like. This trailer was like a dorky kid trying to be cool.

    I'm really not liking this new trend of apocalyptic settings feeling the need to be as obnoxious as possible (Borderlands, Rage 2, this, and to a lesser extent Outer Worlds). I know there's only so much you can do with regards to "personality" when your setting's tone is stone-faced as possible, but it's the end of the fucking world. I don't think I'm going to be partying and Fortnite-dancing like a manchild in the wake of armageddon.

    Having a drunk be the face of the trailer already speaks well for the quality of this game...

    Oh look, its the clown cannibals and cannibals from Bone Tomahawk / Westworld. How original and scarrrrry.
    Fairly quick damage control attempts there against their own trailer.

    This is a continuation of W2 approach and is used specifically to hide how fucking stupid and incoherent their story, quests and main plot design is, and how bad the writing is.
    That was a regular counter argument to all my criticism back then, "But the weirdo, crazy, clown world is a hallmark of Wastaland games!!!" - so any stupid shit goes!
