Yes, I've heard it all before but why force the character into my party in the first place if I can immediately discard it? Hoping it'll grow on me if I'm shackled to it for long enough and I'll have a change of heart?? Bah! There's nothing quite as loathsome as a game designer attempting to use salesman-esque manipulations on innocent gamers.
Once you leave the Garden of the Gods, Wesson asks for your help and gives you the choice to keep her as a companion or not.
Game-design-wise, it just made scripting for that one section easier.
Well if all they were trying to do was save time, then game-design-wise it would make scripting for that one section easier if they removed it altogether along with Sandy Cheeks and that could only stand to improve the game and maybe even make it playable. Assuming there wasn't some other cringe shit that would piss me off immediately afterwards (unlikely).

It's a load-bearing tutorial area, can't do that.

Oh right I guess now that I think about it more, it's actually impossible to make an rpg at all without adding the classic reddit cowgirl character and making sure it gets into the player's party at all costs. I don't know why I thought that you could even write a plot without adding that character to your party, I must be high or something.

I finished this game recently and mostly enjoyed it, including the gonzo humor.

Angela Deth is really the big problem. She's just so dumb it can't be ignored.

When it was over it felt like the sole reason my group of Rangers had to come to Colorado at all was to finish the job that stupid slattern was supposed to do in the first place.
