You know I rarely pre order anymore, but the "fun with weapons" content swayed me to preorder. Was really looking toward to this.
Matt and Tray are gamers hopefully they slap the Viacom loyers around a little.

Good first order of business should be to take obsidian off the project and put a competent developer on the job to dirt fix all the bugs obsidian would have ignored and pretend like they weren't there, then finish the game making it fun, playable and with a good amount of qa behind it, again something obsidian never does and then blames the world for when everything goes bad.

Obsidian are good developers... IMO They've just been screwed a lot by publishers in the past.
Felinox  +   990d ago
Yes people like to talk a lot of smack about Obsidian without knowing all the circumstances.
Obsidian are usually given extremely short development cycles from publishers among other factors. If they were given three year cycle they would produce something amazing.

Good, can we get Stick of Truth on Wii-U now ????

Hopefully they allow Patrice to do what he was doing, and for whatever reason he left Ubisoft back in the day for has been resolved.

I was thinking exactly the same thing when I read the blurb about the article. Isn't it strange that he's going back to the company he was trying to get away from in the first place?... I sincerely hope they can learn to work together again because I have high hopes for Patrice's new IP. :)
