I agree they have their faults, they aren't perfect - but I can see the potential behind those companies.trunkage said:CDProjeckt have been hemorrhaging staff due to mismanagement. It might take another decade but they'll have the same problems as BiowareAbomination said:I think their death throes started somewhere between Mass Effect 2 & 3. Ever since they have haemorrhaged so many of the KOTOR/Jade Empire/Dragon Age: Origins staff that they're just Bioware in name only.
Sad to see what happened to them, I guess I'll be paying more attention to iNeXile, CDProjekt, and Obsidian for my future "good" RPGs.
Ask Addendum about Pillars to see how well Obisidan is going. Me personally, I wish for the days of Alpha Protocol when they showed they could write well. Because I've missed that type of Obsidian.
Inexile's Wasteland is utterly boring compared to even Fallout 4.
None of these companies give me hope of replacing Bioware. But, as I said, Bioware was never that great. Baulders Gate would be a side quest in most games. Looking back, its surprising how lacklustre it was
CDProjekt has been releasing games that I have loved, but I am concerned about their working conditions. Wasteland II was boring but I played it as though it was a tech demo for what their potential is, Wasteland III is looking right neat. I genuinely loved Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny, Microsoft buying Obsidian has the potential to do some wonders (but of course has the potential to ruin them completely).
