You realize many of the key creative team from Black Isle, who made Fallout 1 and 2, are also on the key creative team for Obsidian, right? Obsidian is what Black Isle became after Interplay tanked. So if even if you didn't like New Vegas, if you liked Fallout 1 and 2, then you enjoyed an Obsidian/Black Isle game. Just FYI.
I know that Obsidian is made up of former Black Isle people, and it makes the situation all the more sad. Sometime between the fall of Black Isle, and when they went to Obsidian, they apparently lost their ability to make a working, complete game.
Obsidian is like an actor who was in like several great movies, then when he got old he didn't stop being in movies, but then doesn't seem to notice that he is old and the movies he are in arent the same types of movies he was in 20 years ago, and each one gets progressively worse. I feel like they are trying to relive their glory days, but at the same time they forget what made their good days good.
Black Isle Studios games are some of my favorite ever, one the other hand, there isn't a single Obsidian game I don't regret buying, and if they didn't survive by making sequels to other people's franchises, I probably wouldn't buy any of their games.
It was only my love for NWN1, KOTOR 1, Fallout 1 and 2, and DS1 and 2, that got me through Obsidian's broken sequels.
