    I believe the OTHER (2nd) game Obsidian is working on is a collaboration with BIO?

    Can you comment on that squish? :P

    Umm - apart from the unnanounced game they are only working on NWN2 at the moment, which is definitely in collaboration with Bio.

    Sorry VD, I wasn't trying to be a dick about anything. You know how these things go - we won't talk about stuff before it's officially announced, so you weren't going to get any more information about the game. And like Exitium said, my original reply was simply to stop any rumors that this game is connected to Bioware in any way, including technology - I thought that would have been pretty clear to everyone when I said "no connection to Bioware whatsoever". Not a lot of room for interpretation there.

    Kick his ass, squish! You can do it!

    Actually, I haven't read any of the thread, but I figured I should post something here anyway.

    I will be a very happy person if it won't turn out to be an action rpg, and IMO action rpgs are beneath Obsidian considering the staff they got.
    But if they want to work with a 3d shooter engine ( malleable or not ) they'll want to focus alot on combat and shiny graphics.
    Troika did that with Bloodlines , the litlle beast that could, and they almost had it. But I have some boring memories about long lasting 3d shooter like episodes.
    I just hope they make an rpg, I don't care that much about teh shiny graphics.

    Btw, don't know why but none of my top 5 games of all time are 3d.

    I don't think they're aiming for a first person experience. Most of the games being developed under UE3 aren't.

    And just to clarify the comment about NWN2 being a collaboration with Bioware. We got the engine from them and some updates about a year ago and that is pretty much the extent of their current involvement in NWN2. If we needed help, I know they would be more than willing to pitch in, but it hasn't been necessary.

    How about the time when you didn't finish KOTOR 2 properly?
    Edit: Not that I'm not thankful for all the other content in the game.

    Although Bio is hosting the NWN2 message boards...which would seem to indicate a continuing involvement in the project.

    In any case, perhaps I should have used the term "involved with" rather than "collaboration"...might have been more accurate.

    I'm certainly glad to hear that your 3rd project will be a new and original title (even if it is a D&D game).

    Does Obsidian even have the art talent to feed that beast of an engine? Oh well, willing to give Fearg the benefit of the doubt. COUGHLITHTECHCOUGH

    If you watch the Nvidia launch video where they first showed the Unreal 3 engine, the presenter mentioned some FPS project to show off the engine.

    Im sure thats the subject of this thread.

    Whats amazing to me is that the convergence of movies and games is going to have to come a LOT faster...the cost of taking an Unreal3 game to the edge with so close to life-like architecture and characters...is going to need more of a movie budget than a "games" budget.

    I'm little bit surprised that nobody of you guys mentioned it or I just missed it due to my badly hurting tooth. Seems like Obsidian is aiming for the big money.

    Yeah, I saw that earlier. Hopefully it's just a mistype. I'd hate to see it developed only for the console.

    That sucks. I think most people here agree with me that most console games have driven people to suicide.

    maybe they can make an ULTIMATE IRON MAN game and get OSC to write it. :buttrock: What the hell right? The Bioware style of RPG is pretty much a dressed up adventure game with your generic character. Might as well make a cool adventure game with a bitchin character.

    What you're saying is you don't need BioWare there for the assist before the SLAM DUNK, right?
