Delayed Responsibility

I Shouldn't Be Gaming Right Now… But I Am!

Obsidian, I Love You Again

Posted by deckard47 on April 20, 2009

For two reasons, not just one. First, Owen, being a villain, started playing KotoR II again. Unsurprisingly, I couldn’t resist, not after realizing that there was some unplayed modular build of a character I’d previously played that I could try out. I’m so weak. Anyway, my new Dark Side Sentinel will be busting out of Peragus soon enough. The game looks really good, especially now that I’ve figured out how to trick it into widescreen. It really shouldn’t be that difficult, but it is. More soon.

What else do I love about Obsidian (and it isn’t NWN2, sadly)? The fact that they’re working on the next Fallout game for Bethesda. Shit. I don’t think it’s a secret that I think that Obsidian are some of the best writers out there, and that while their games may not always be as polished, their stories are often more nuanced than those found in Bioware games. Anyway, I would love to see the skills so amazingly honed in KotoR II make their appearance in some kind of Fallout universe game. I’ll be honest with you, it would make me actually interested in the series again. Fallout 3 languishes in its case, wondering why I’m playing older, less polished RPGs. Its because I can’t stand your writing, story, or tone, F3! I hope it didn’t hear that, I don’t want to hurt its feelings. Go Obsidian!

  1. +1, the writing in Kotor 2 was totes better than 1. They did a good job of adding complexity to the morals, instead of them being so straightforward.

    That said, their level designers might not be as good as Bethesda, and Fallout 3 gets pretty boring visually and kinetically as it is. Here’s to hoping!
