This month's guest on IGN Unfiltered, IGN's long-form interview show, was inXile CEO Brian Fargo. Since interviewing Feargus Urquhart earlier this year, the show has switched to an episodic format, and so the interview with Brian was split into three episodes - the first one covering his early career before Interplay, the second covering the Interplay years, and the third covering the inXile and Kickstarter era. The second episode is the longest and by far the most interesting, so I'll post it here:



The interview isn't anywhere near as full of tidbits and secrets as Feargus' was, but it does go into a level of detail about Brian's business relationships that I don't think I've seen before. The interviewer is clearly quite familiar with Interplay's 1990s heyday, taking the time to ask questions not just about the usual Black Isle classics but also about titles such as ClayFighter and Mario Teaches Typing(!). Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to know much at all about Brian's more recent work, asking only the most cursory of questions about it, so the interview is really only useful for history buffs. Not what you'd expect from IGN!

I like Fargo.

The TV Show.

And the movie.

And yeah, the man. Made mistakes, but..you know, Interplay was a great fucking company. Hopefully Wasteland 3 will recapture some of it. 2 was a decent effort...decent.

They will release the next part next week, and seeing how the timeline worked on this interview it is safe to say that the 2nd part will involve more recent work.

Did you read the first part of the OP. This interview is over, they released the final part yesterday.

My bad, didn't see the link for the 3rd one on the post.

Not mentioning Interplay's best games (Sacrifice and Giants Citizen Kabuto, plus other Shiny titles) is just outrageous. It seems he doesn't remember games that didn't sell too well even though they were superb.

Ctrl+f: Sacrifice
I've somehow missed that article, thanks.

Fargo, you impressed me :love:. Sacrifice is my favourite game ever (along with F1 and AoD).
