    While I don't like making fun of devs' appearances I really can't help but mention that he really removes "fear" from Feargus. Really.
    Other than that it's the same old industry not getting that replayability comes from gameplay not from vapid C&C or short games. He pretty much made a case of why I never saw Obsidian as particularly special and that they are right in with the rest of the industry in moving further into a bad/moronic/popamole/circlejerk direction.

    Other than that he seems like a nice guy. Gay, but nice.

    Obsidian - forever stuck in the mediocrity, trying to copy what big players do better and failing. And they like it there. Meh

    They still haven't passed the challenge of releasing a finished game beyond the scope of an expansion pack.

    Actually, that's a good point. Vault Dweller is to blame.
