Default Wasteland 2 - Gameplay video next week?

February 2nd, 2013, 03:09
Catching up on Brian Fargo's tweets, hopefully we'll get some video of Wasteland 2 next week:
I can't wait to get our video game play demo into your hands. It's looking super strong with lots of detail. Feels like next week for that.
…and Chris Avellone is impressed:
We showed Mr. Avellone the Wasteland 2 game play demo today and got a big thumbs up. We got some laughs along with some oohs and ahhs.
More information.

Already? I'm surprised that they're far enough along to have gameplay footage to show off this soon. Definitely looking forward to seeing this.

They seem to be well on schedule. I think they prioritized one area to polish up a bit for showing off, but most importantly the HUD is functional and working, as are other gameplay areas.

The area they'll show is the agricultural center, written by Chris Avellone, and they'll show the HUD, dialog, skill tests, combat. Should be good!

I keep seeing various folks tweeting about it. I'm really looking forward to seeing it but I wish they would just release the video and stop talking about it!

Because Brother None is The Man. He's the NSA of RPGs. He's the "Pssst…" in a trenchcoat under a street lamp. The innkeeper easily bribed with digital gold. He's your conscience personified in 1s and 0s. The nasal-voiced 1920s telephone operator of the interwebs. He's the paste eater on the other end of your soup can on a string. The muted voice of static on your cordless home phone you think might be a neighbor. He's your brother at midnight on the matching plastic walkie talkie, who you begin to suspect might be under the covers with a flashlight and a porno mag….

That's because he has connections.

That's right, or at least being aware of what's going on. And it's not luck. It's about legwork.

Yeah, this is like the fourth time I read about the video to come. Stop teasing already and show it to us!!! On the other hand, if the video is as good as I hope, that means that the game might be as good as I hope. And then the waiting for the actual game to be finished will be even worse. Maybe I shold just lay off computers for half a year or somehing…

Haha, funny thread. But to be clear, this information isn't insider, it's been publicly stated here and there, I just happen to follow it all closely enough to know. I did also see the video script and will get to see the video before it's out, but that's just to gather feedback.

I help em out on a bunch of stuff, yeah. It's good to get news quickly that way, but able to clarify and get inside stuff, but obviously as a journalist that also means I can not write previews/reviews for WL2 or any inXile product, and don't intend to. Don't get me wrong, they don't pay me or anything, but I'm way too vested in this product to give it an unbiased look. But that's fine as long as you're aware of it and act responsibly, as a journalist.

We're excited about a pre-announcement to a preview of an unfinished game? Ah well…

It's not an "unfinished game" it's Wasteland 2!
