    Their social media engagement is really struggling compared to Deadfire's. I wonder if we're going to see inXile's version of a Critical Role tie-in or if they're pursuing a different strategy.

    Bet it's mostly old people following inXile. They probably do better on Facebook.

    I'm mildly hyped as I enjoyed Wasteland 2 well enough.

    Wasteland 2 lost many people because best parts were put in the second half and the worst parts were put near the beginning.

    I wonder why they're looking for a senior writer for this game at this point?: https://www.inxile-entertainment.com/senior-writer-wl3

    They thought to celebrate crayon day some more by having the writers write something in crayon and post it all over social media to increase engagement and all that.

    Turned out they don't have any writers left.

    I suspected that after the Microsoft buyout Wasteland 3 would be expanded in a major way to become a viable D:OS 2 competitor. Maybe that's why we haven't heard anything from it for so long - the game is being completely overhauled.

    That would definitely be interesting. Let's hope that it's more compelling than D:OS 2. I don't doubt that it's a great game but when I played it co-op I couldn't give a shit about what was going on and the randomized loot a la looter games was annoying. I wasn't expecting to have to keep checking loot and look at rarities and nonsense. I guess that's a big pull for some people. Gotta get that shiny purple named sword that does Random Effect 43 and has Static Bonus 7!!!!

    You guys are too optimistic, but Microsoft can indeed throw some money at W3 to polish it a bit, so the quality of the game won't affect their brand negatively. Releasing something as amateurish, as usual inXile fare shouldn't be acceptable for them.

    Lol at the requirements. Seriously anyone with 5+ years of experience will go anywhere but no inxile.

    If it's coming out this year, we should be days away from the backer alpha release.

    I'm not sure this means Khaw left. Doesn't really seem the type to take over as senior writer just because someone else took a hike.

    She wrote for Wasteland 3. The writing for the game was supposed to be mostly finished, which is why so many of the writers left about six months ago. I guess now they’re doing edits or adding content.

    She seduced Brain None, drank his milkshake and left for greener pastures.
