    It's probably a comic or something equally lame. Maybe he is writing an episode for those shitty animations or a short piece of fiction. I would be surprised if Disney actually allowed him to do a game with the IP and even more surprised to have a competent studio handling it.

    Even have a ballad about a train. So English.



    Thing about delivering the mail though, I get a kick out of thinking it's a song dedicated to Postman Pat's delivery truck.

    Saxon is awesome. I don't even like heavy metal and can listen to some of their songs on a loop. This is my personal favorite:

    He did add it as a bark. New Reno prostitutes say this in the post-endgame:

    He regretted the joke and clarified it in the Fallout Bible:

    A man posts on the forums, he says
    Why is our company struggling now
    We shouldn’t still be struggling, there
    Are so few here who still care
    I need 'em to help kickstart a fund
    I want some proper attention
    Nothing’s changed here in 10 years
    And the change ain't comin'
    Jones, Eric, Chris Parker,
    Send talent packing
    Drain away the time we spent here
    Mr Urquhart, Urquhart
    We’re no longer underdogs, you know
    it's our own fault we missed 85 percent.

    Oh I’d still be an owner now
    If you wouldn’t drop the ball
    I can tell the forums
    Maybe when the forums tell
    They'll tell it all

    A man posts on the forums, he says
    Why are you yelling Fergus, and
    Why do you start bragging Fergus, and
    You yelled down our contract
    There’s your wife on salary
    What does she do here?
    She'll get a bonus
    But see our bonuses are
    Gone, gone
    We don’t have time to waste today, meanwhile
    Our employees are gonna go through hell
    Hell and back, and back
    Cause you’ve optimal greatest business sense
    Cause you’ve really shit the bed now

    Oh I’d still be an owner
    If you wouldn’t drop the ball
    I can tell the forums
    Maybe when the forums tell
    They'll tell it all

    (Hey Feargus, wanna burn piles of money with us!)
    (Sure thing Pubs, it'll be fucking great!)
    (Let's go snort coke off of hookers in the club!)
    (Fuck yeah!)
    (*snort* Ugh)
    (Gimme that shit, yeah, fuckin' wave that shit in my face you fuckin' whore, yeah you love it, here, fuck, take, take 50, I'm fuckin', I'm blowin' hundreds here, I'm blowin' hundreds!)

    A man posts on the forums
    It's a post with some strange words
    Maybe they’re just hurtful
    Maybe they're just meant to confound
    He doesn’t write romances
    He owns no currency
    He's not beholden
    He has a lot of love to share, to share
    Ninety pages worth of it
    Ramblings and reminisces
    He’s out of there, of there
    He has found his greatest happiness since
    Pillars of Eternity
    He says goodbye, and good luck Feargus

    Oh I’d still be an owner
    If you wouldn’t drop the ball
    I can tell the forums
    Maybe when the forums tell
    They'll tell it all

    Fuck you Feargus
    You ruined something good
    Literally everybody liked Fallout: New Vegas
    Even the people who don't like Fallout like Fallout: New Vegas
    But still, fuck Bethesda
    Fuck the plebs
    Fuck the people who work for you, right?
    Fuck you too

    Oh I’d still be an owner
    (kys m8) nah, da, da, da
    Oh I’d still be an owner
    (it's much too late)
    I can tell the forums
    (kys m8) nah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Oh I’d still be an owner
    (it's much too late)
    I can tell the forums
    (kys m8) nah, da, da, da[/spoilers]

    Respawn Entertainment was recently bought out by EA and is working on a Star Wars game. Considering that Titanfall 2 easily had one of the best FPS campaigns of all time I would say that Chris working with them would be a good thing indeed.

    so Chris Avellone is still doing pr and public appearances and no writing anything significant. maybe a companion or two here and there but that is about it.

    So his creative juice have dried up.

    between this and Zeits being under Sankeoil Salesman Fargo's thumb, RIP goes my dreams of a good storyfag crpg.

    guess ill replay MotB when I am sick and tired of Bugfinder: Patchmaker.

    InXile's got to be sinking after two flops in a row with no hope for the third. I imagine Zeits will be a free agent sooner or later. Maybe Obsidian will hire him for the main story in Pillars 3

    One can hope.

    Not necessarily. There could be more to it all than what we know.

    Ages ago, I've read some troll strategy that was basically farming these toes by going in these caves continuously and then cutting them off. I believe that if you have enough of them you can bring Horrigan to 1 HP.

    Couldn't you do a different sort of post apocalypse, one that happens during a space age?

    because you require a coherent civilization to be in space in the first place. technically, mass effect is a post-apoc space age game. another scenario is that you're stuck in a giant space hub on the brink of death by either disease or robots or something, which makes me think of the future areas from Chrono Trigger

    you could have a space colony that becomes isolated and faces technical degradation and civil conflict that quickle degenerates into a miserable society, except maybe there's a water chip replicator hidden somewhere in the sandy dunes that you can't even activate properly

    just throwing ideas around relly

    Didn't StarCraft have the isolation of multiple colonies for the Terran be a thing? I don't remember the plot all that well outside of what happens in game. I just remember something about colonies being abandoned and they feuded with each other.

    I would love to see Jeff Vogel and Chris Avellone team up to create a game.

    Have you got any plans in the next 20 years to create your own world/game Chris? Even simple graphics with tiles would be great, as those are still my favourite presentation style due to clarity.
