    InXile at least try to do something interesting. The ambition is there, it's just that they simply lack the talent to make it work.

    Here i disagree with you mate,crowdfunded did help quite a few noname studios to put out a game. It was used as a scam by established brands and magic devs. Without it we wouldn't have got games like tower of time,a hat in time or kingmaker. There is like 50/50 chance of indie game coming out,and most of them are pretty good.

    Also the fact that games are made by a team and not by one magical dude.....unless hardcore indies ;). Everyone on the does contribute to the game and it is stupid to give all the credit to single dude.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Serpent in the Staglands Dead State Divinity: Original Sin Project: Eternity Torment: Tides of Numenera Wasteland 2 Shadorwun: Hong Kong Divinity: Original Sin 2 A Beautifully Desolate Campaign Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Pathfinder: Kingmaker
    With regard to inXile, the problem with the "these geezers from the 1980s/1990s have lost their touch!" narrative is that their most oldschool, most Brian Fargo-influenced game - Wasteland 2 - was actually the most successful and well-received.

    Torment: Tides of Numenera was led by Kevin Saunders, who when the game began development had directed Codex masterpiece Mask of the Betrayer less than 6 years earlier. George Ziets had an important role on that project also.

    Bard's Tale IV was led by David Rogers, a young guy with his first game development credit in 2013.

    Now George Ziets is the lead designer on Wasteland 3, so let's hope this isn't actually a rule.

    Anyway, the game may very well be bad, but it's silly to jump to that conclusion based on the tone of an intentionally goofy trailer.

    Because it was their first game and people had expectation,after that it became clear that they are.....mediocre.

    The trailer sucks shit but I doubt the game will be quite that retarded.

    As long as they tighten up the combat a little bit and, ideally, don't make the maps so stupidly fucking big like in WL2 that 90% of the game is spent walking around empty space, then the game can't really go wrong.

    I mean, I still pretty hopeful about WL3, but that E3 trailer was really odd. Why would you choose that tone? You kind of fucked up on the marketing part, if your CEO (Fargo) has to go on twitter, to explain the trailer and how its been misintepreted. Hopefully the game itself will be good and better than WL2, it has MCA and Ziets.

    So many games and movies are mishandled by marketing these days.

    As you well know Kevin was fired half way through and replaced by Chris Keenan, because he resisted diverting kickstarter funds to other projects and all ingenious changes to the game the management pushed to achieve that.
    Which went so far they didnt pay for quality character avatar portraits but replaced them with cheap generic nonsense cobbled by someone in the studio.

    Although you seem to have some deranged psychological motive to blame him for various issues and horrible state of the game that was released, probably to suck ass to the company/devs as you usually do, Tides that came out cannot be considered his work at all.


    edit:

    Yeah sure, my post is "creative". Right-e-o.

    Shacknews brief writeup of the interview: https://www.shacknews.com/article/1...more-about-the-players-journey-than-the-story

    Doesn't mention the last couple of minutes of the interview, where Brian reveals a few new plot details (I think).

    The Retcon Raider is great. I wonder what his account here is called (hard to believe he doesn't have one).
