Wow, so much arrogance that you seem to think your opinion is an objective fact. Have you ever worked on a video game development team?

First, it should be noted that Wasteland 2 raised $1…

It's the opening cinematic, not a trailer. For an opening cinematic (something I'm basically going to watch once and skip in any subsequent playthroughs) I liked it just fine.

I don't see much difference between mainstream news and pundits / bloggers, but I'll take your word for it. To be honest, I'm not really all that familiar with any of these sites and generally don't…

Would you be OK with them linking to nutjob right-wing politics websites like Fox "news"?

Regardless of one's personal political views, this is a pretty straightforward issue that any adult…

There's reportedly over 40 recruitable NPCs. That sounds like quite a few. How well fleshed out can we expect their personalities and…

One thing that's kind of puzzling to me is why there aren't more turn-based strategy games and RPGs available for mobile devices. I know I'm biased against Real-time combat as I generally don't…

I'm a bit concerned that this mish-mosh of Asian, African, and traditional European style fantasy that they're going for will end up being sort of a clusterfuck. However, the monk class does seem to…
