    He would know more than anyone what turn based RPG versus real-time RPG sales are like. I can see him green-lighting a low-budget vanity project if/when Obsidian's doing amazingly well for itself and can afford to.

    I wonder what voices that guy is doing, I don't think he's a professional voice actor. Maybe he's doing some monster voices?

    He's blind btw. Inclusive_gaming

    Why do I have the feeling that he was the one that pressed the idea for Fallout to be real time in the wake of Diablo?

    And by the way, nothing beats the "Veil of steel" as an item name in quality.

    What Fergus has to do with Fallout 1 ? It's Tim Cain that created it and it's Fargo that greenlight it.

    Can someone from the KKKodex ask this guy what type of character he's playing (ie companion or non-cNPC), I don't have a twitter.

    We got a new developer at least, Matt McLean. And this article is actually pretty good

    Yeah what about it? I do the occasional PE update for Cybergamer EU and AU every few months. I've done my original interview with Josh Sawyer and four or five other summary articles. Most of the people from CG are younger gamers in their teens and early 20s, and into competitive and casual games. My original interview got nearly 30K views though, so hopefully some of them will buy the game :)

    I knew Olivia Veras was a PE designer, just never had any proof (posted about it earlier in this thread). Adding to the wiki

    This doesn't look like an E3 article? Looks like they visited the studio or something maybe as it doesn't even mention E3 in the article

    [Wild Speculation]The player character is supposed to be new to the area, so maybe the game starts with you shipwrecking onto Anslog's Compass. In the video, you can see there's part of a ruined ship there.[/Wild Speculation]

    Sensuki Duraframe300 "Jorge Salgao" in that article is a typo, isn't it? It's Salgado, the Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul guy.

    Yeah they also mispelled Jeff Husges as Jeff Hughes.

    What was his writing like on MotB ?

    I recall him not liking his system design, on PE he's just doing writing.

    Matt wrote most of Safiya's dialogue which I enjoyed.

    Utterly terrible systems designer of course.

    I haven't played Alpha Protocol but he is listed as a writer for Alpha Protocol and an Area Designer for Fallout: New Vegas
