    Given the shit storm of 76, Obsidian couldn't have timed this more perfectly.

    Which one is their only good game?

    Neverwinter Nights 2
    SW Knights of the Old Republic 2
    Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2
    South Park Stick of Truth
    Fallout NV

    Or as Black Isle:
    Icewind Dale 1 and 2
    Baldur’s Gate 2
    Fallout 2
    Planescape

    And chuck in the rest of the Baldur’s Gates, Fallout 1 and everything else from Interplay if you want to include the key people like Feargus Urquhart and Chris Avellone.

    :p

    In there are not only many of my GOATs but some of the greatest and most influential RPGs of all time.

    Distinct lack of Alpha Protocol in that list . I know I'm definitely in the minority that liked that though.

    Alpha Protocol was great too. I just didn’t want to seem like I copy and pasted their release history :p figured I’d leave it to undisputed hits. Dungeon Siege was imo their weakest release but even that wasn’t absolutely terrible.

    Those Forgotten Realms RPGs left the biggest impression on me and then I spent probably years smashing all of R.A Salvatore’s books. BioWare managed the other side of the coin for me with Neverwinter Nights 1 (and of course Knights of the Old Republic) which is probably I kept the faith in their name as a fanboy for a bit longer than anyone else.

    Gee thats pretty good. Have watched the Pillars of Eternity games on YouTube/Twitch and they look fantastic, but seriously long and lots of reading. Baldur's Gate 2 gets high praise and Fallout 2 is one of my fav ever games. Can certainly make an isometric RPG experience.

    They were the kings of the genre back in the day, and proved they could do a fully voiced RPG when they had their chance with New Vegas. I guess after they were dropped by Bethesda they went back to doing what they did best within their budget limitations and that's where Pillars of Eternity came from. I actually started Pillars of Eternity 1 again just casually recently, and despite so much reading it really is a great game. It makes me miss the old Forgotten Realms universe though and I hope somebody picks it back up again.

    Some of the other key people (well at least the founder, Brian Fargo) from the Fallout 1 Interplay days have gone on to make InXile. They have made Wasteland 2 which is well worth it if you love the original Fallout games as it's very similar. In fact I think it was even developed as the spiritual successor to Fallout 2. Another of their recent games was Torment: Tides of Numenera which is another isometric RPG in the style of BG/IWD. Most interestingly though is that Microsoft also recently acquired InXile as well as Obsidian. So now they have some of the most influential people in RPG history under their umbrella and it would be fantastic if there could be a collaboration between the two companies down the track.

    Not bad, didn't know all that! I do have Wasteland 2! I bought it around the time it came out and I still haven't gotten around to playing it yet. But I see there is a Wasteland 3 coming out next year so I'll probably get into it before that comes out. Torment: Tides of Numenera looks fantastic as well, I've just wishlisted it. The future does look pretty good if Obsidian and InXile collaborate in the future. Hopefully they're given a free license by Microsoft to create what they think will be best because the two companies look as though they know how to make a hit.

    Watching both of their announcement videos about joining Microsoft they have pretty much said the same thing - it will only work if they can keep doing things their way, however now with the resources from Microsoft they'll finally be able to make they want and won't be limited by their own means. I guess we'll have to wait and see though!

    I see you're already role-playing this game and have chosen to exclusively use the [DUMB] dialogue options.

    Good to see :thumbsu:

    (this game looks bloody awesome, can't wait. Only little issue from the gameplay vid is the combat looks a little sketchy, hopefully all good though)

    The dumb option is getting a raging boner for a game from one trailer in this day and age of half finished garbage.

    All I'm saying is everyone should temper their expectations until we see actual gameplay and reviews.

    Of course, that's a reasonable line of thinking.

    But saying you "hope it sucks" is silly.

    And Obsidian do have an insane record of quality games, it fits right in my wheelhouse of open-world hub environments with deep RPG mechanics, squad-based action game that i love.

    It's nice to get excited every now and then :)
