InXile Up their Own Ass for T:ToN?

This little gem http://tormentrpg.tumblr.com/post/45838607710/colin-talks-character-creation-romance plus the fact that Patrick Rothfuss is one of the game's writers makes me feel like InXile are up their own ass for T:ToN. Like, they are aware that they're making a successor to the "best written RPG of all time," so they're layering on the pretension and self-importance for this new one. It just seems to me like it takes serious balls to insult people when they ask why you're not including some degree of character customization. Plus, the line on the game's page "you can make these people whole again" with regards to the party members seems like the same old emotionally manipulative bullshit that modern RPGs love nowadays (cough, Bioware, cough).

Besides all that, the copious breaches of storytelling and worldbuilding logic in Wasteland 2 (not to mention it's bland, uninspired "save the world" plot) don't exactly give me confidence that InXile can pull off a smart and well written title.

Whether they're "up their own ass" or not will depend entirely on whether the end product is good. If it's shit, they were up their own ass; if it's good, they weren't.

A tautological answer to a stupid question.

By definition, something can't be pretentious if it actually is great/important/cultured or whatever. OP seems to be asking if inExile hired a bunch of pretentious idiots.

Well, we'll see.

what if tton is so popular that it goes mainstream and makes inxile rich but everyone here hates it

grace returns as a fanservice biowhore romance option and dakkon is a tree

"a billion years of gender equality". What a time to be alive. As if a setting a billion years into the future wasn't stupid enough already.

They're not up their ass, because I'm up their ass. Going to go back over on Tuesday and be up their ass some more.
