    Back then we only thought Cleve was crazy. Afterwards we began sympathizing with his addled, literally raped, mind.

    This whole thread looks so different now, knowing that Fergie was opting out on being an owner just as it happened.

    It's beautiful.

    Does it count as thread necrophilia if it's a thread devoted to him? :M

    I seem to remember Sawyer specifically stating the framework of the story was done by John Gonzalez. At first I thought it was Fenstermaker but he was just a designer on New Vegas. .

    Also if Sawyer was such a driving force behind New Vegas then how come Pillars is bland in so many ways when he had such a heavy hand in it?

    So Sawyer was responsible for the worst DLC and had little to nothing to do with the things that were actually good in the main game. Why did we listen to this fraud again?

    If ye invoketh Chris Avellone with a tag, ye canna be surprised when Chris Avellone then appeareth.

    Useth the magick circle sparingly, thus sayeth The Tome of the Wyrd.

    I would marry anyone on the first date if they said they liked Darklands.

    He was the director (thus responsible for everything) and he says he had more direct control over F:NV than any other game he’s directed, even describing his management style as dictatorial. It’s not the director’s job to write everything; his job is to make sure other people execute his vision. For all his later failings, he still deserves a ton of credit for New Vegas.
