    i think the entire setting/plot is retarded top-down, this feels like a dopey gamecube platformer from 2002

    The giant hands on the kids freak me out. Get it together, Obsidian character modelers.

    Brennecke is the guy who went to bat for Diablo 3's always-online mode back then. I can certainly see this as his true passion project (and not Project Eternity which was a cash-in "We gotta do this or someone else will!!!!!" idea for all involved).

    Imagine if they had 12 people working on a hardcore RPG. Of course the ROI wouldn't be as good, can't have that now, can we?

    ? Open world survival games are still going strong. The iron is still hot.

    ROI won't be good for this shitty game either, probably.
    But yeah, what people really wants from Obsidian is a survival game with co-op and young kids as main characters.

    I'd be surprised if Microsoft bought Obsidian and told them to make this, but then Microsoft did task Ensemble to make a console Halo MMO.

    Hey now, don't ask for impossible. You can't get a stylized char right when you can't even make a photoreal model look good. Stylized content is difficult to work with. Especially when you're an Obisidian character modeller.

    Damn, maybe Outer Worlds was their trial run using Unreal engine. With additional experience with the engine under their belt, this must be the prime time action title that Feargus was dreaming about since the merger. It checks all the boxes, Rust like survival element with Fortnite building gameplay, light multiplayer, with a bit of wading into blue ocean with enlarged environment gimmick, ants, etc. Now the Obsidian writers can truly strut their stuff and be in touch with their kindred self contributing snappy one liners and memes aimed at kids.

    Wow. You'd have to be an advanced type of degenerate to defend something like that.

    People disagreeing with me: Other than a Souls-like or a roguelite, what else is trendy? Aside from just plain open world games.

    souls-likes and roguelites aren't trendy anymore. It's all about games-as-a-services, and even those games are dying down.

    Code Vein and Sekiro were just released this year. Jedi: Fallen Order is also out soon and it looks Souls as-all-get-out (it has meditation spots as a bonfire-equivalent).

    You guys realize this thing is aimed at preteens, right? Even more so than usual, we are well outside the target audience. Feels like when your younger sibling gets a shitty Christmas present—who cares?

    At least when Obsidian makes a multiplayer survival game, they give it the scant resources it deserves. A twelve man team with less than two years? C’mon, this is nothing.

    jedi fallen order is just another nutombraider-like highly scripted story-focused action game.
    code vein is trying to look like a souls-like to attract fromsoft fans, but it's closer to god eater.

    I feel sorry for Obsidian fans, this crap is hard to defend.
    Also, what is Sawyer's role in this?
    If it's a MP game he should have plenty of stuff to balance (tm)
