One can only hope J.E. Sawyer gets to ship a game this time 'round…word via the RPG Codex forums from Josh is that he is heading up Fallout: New Vegas-
Yes. I'm the project director and lead designer. I can't complain.
More information.

Pardon my ignorance but who is he?

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.

Obsidian does a good job with RPGs and Van Buren had a lot of potential. Kotor2 could have been great if it was ever finished and NWN2 wasn't really my cup of tea but it was a well put together game.

I'm cautiously optimistic at this news. I haven't even touched Fallout 3 yet, heard it was everything I feared it was going to be. Don't kid yourselves, this is going to be a FPS but if Obsidian is allowed to fix the character system and combat mechanics of the fallout 3 engine there's hope.

From what I remember of the Van Buren forums JE "gets" fallout. Also Feargus Urquhart is in charge over at Obsidian.

Best Case: This is what we all hoped Fallout3 would be when it was announced by Bethesda.
Worst Case: Another ignorable title and we blame everything that sucks on Bethesda so we don't have to start hating Obsidian too.

Fantastic news. We've yet to see any of his work released where he was given real freedom but he is a game systems scholar with good insight into systems design. And I'm sure this one will get released.
