oasis789: What happened to Bradley anyway?

He did a game with his own team called "Wizards & Warriors" which was kinda the unofficial Wizardry 8, when it became glaringly obvious that Sirtech had no intention of ever making following up on 1992s Wizardry 7. It was actually a better game in my opinion than the version of Wizardry 8 that the Jagged Alliance crew eventually came out with. Main problem with it was he was overly ambitious and and a lot of the user interface and 3D graphics were just kinda kludgy and weird. Still, might be worth a look if you're a big fan of Wizardry 7 and don't mind late 1990s tech that wasn't quite up to snuff even in the late 1990s.

JDR13: …but most of us around here actually do agree that Wizardry 8 was pretty good.

Thanks for the input, Deus Ex boy. I'll be sure to check with you again next time I need to know what a typical internet forum troll thinks is high quality entertainment.

azarhal: He actually sound bitter. It's like Brenda killed his puppy 20 years ago.

She killed my hobby, and it was nearly 20 years ago when I saw her on Compuserve pimping her silly druid adventure game and saying there was no market for games like Wizardry because they weren't "accessible" enough. And she was speaking as official spokesman of Sirtech at the time. I'll be damned if I'll let her pose as somebody who laments the passing of old-school RPGs when she as much as anyone caused the RPG drought of the mid 1990s. And watch while Deus Ex boy says something like "RPG drought in the 1990s? WTF you talking about!?". Somebody ought to slap a sign on his back that says: "Likes to talk like he's old school but Deus Ex was the first computer game he ever played", right?

Shagnak: I still supported them though, because I enjoyed Fallout:NV*, and kinda out of principal (more independently produced RPGs!).

Yeah, they've been all over the place with their results but they have developed some of my favorite games, both at Black isle and at Obsidian. And I had more fun with New Vegas than any other RPG in quite a few years.
