    I must say that DS3 is beginning to grow on me. The gameplay’s not my cup of tea, and I probably wouldn’t have bought it if not for the Obsidian label, but I’m having fun with it.

    There’s also that bloke who was soul-forged with a chicken.

    In all seriousness I did actually like the art of DS3 but... basically everything else was mediocre at best. At least in terms of comparison to other PC ARPGs -- I realize it was designed for consoles first but the problem was that influence seeped into many significant areas of gameplay. And, honestly, while losing your job is not cause for celebration I think the actual talented people at Obsidian are better off elsewhere versus working on something like DS3 again.

    The good side to this is there's now a chance that ziets, cherry and other employees from obsidian who were fired (or are about to) may start their own indie ventures, kinda like molyneux, free of all the corporate bullshit and free to do whatever they want. I just shat myself just by thinking about it.
