    No silly magic and not elves. Also, high tech.

    Space opera is good enough for me too.

    (inb4 the production of the epic Elves in Space)

    I would welcome PoE2, provided Obsidian does another pass on combat mechanics and possibly character development.

    Also, please be Bloodlines 2 (alternatively, something Arcanum-ish).

    If Cain/Boyarsky creates Bloodlines 2, I will seriously consider buying an Obsidian game.

    I'd rather have just sci-fi without that space opera part.

    They should do a cyberpunk-ish/high-tech low-life futuristic game before it gets old too. Seems like this is the new trend in the cRPG scene(Copper Dreams, VD's next game, Cyberpunk 2077...)

    I actually enjoyed PoE's writing for what it was worth (I know I am the minority here). I enjoyed the infighting and backstabbing between the gods, the way the dialogue changed based on your background, and the fact that your character's soul has run into Thaos over multiple lifetimes. Where I think PoE fell short was the companion and the Watcher rpg elements (in contrast see Mask of the Betrayer).

    For PoE2, I hope the RPG mechanic is essentially what Thaos did over the course of the plot. He manipulated cultures over lifetimes and could possess people.

    Edit: Perhaps I deserve shit for this opinion, but I would kill if Obsidian made being a Watcher akin to Ravenor/Eisenhorn from 40k. Just let the player investigate a town with mind/soul reading and manipulate events with possession/mind control.

    I assume that's the theme tune to their new Fallout game.

    Fuck. I did think I would be the one to bring the good news. Still, it was posible me who made him split the bean, he had another interview after mine, it might be this site. Using for the game the Unreal engine increases slightly chances of it being WoD game, you will see that after I made transcipt of my interview.

    Feargus speech apart from being pretty good speech on how to do bussines, brought 2 new informations. Breaking PoE expansion was a mistake, it generated costs and more work, PoE 2 will have New Vegas style DLCs. Obsidian is using time to improve thetools for PoE 2.

    Funny anectode: before his speech two polish guys siting in my back said to each other:
    -Who is this guy?
    - I know only he made South Park game.
    :)

    I would prefer they blow my mind with something new, like they did with FO, Arcanum, Bloodlines. Sequels are great, but their best stuff has always been new shit.

    The Dying Earth sub-genre has been seriously ignored by crpg creators so far.

    Funny, when you consider how much influence Vance has had on rpgs in general.

    Not strictly fantasy, not strictly sci-fi, not strictly post-apocalyptic.

    It's a wonder to me why nobody has done it yet.

    (Although T:ToN is pretty much Dying Earth, I suppose...)
