(Don't) Give me that old time RPG combat

Joystiq: The Kickstarter success of Wasteland 2 may be one of the most important developments in Western role-playing games in years. It could re-open the doors to bringing back party-based, less cinematic role-playing games of the sort that have been largely gone since the mid-1990s. The trick, however, will be in using a style of combat that assures both quality and popularity for Wasteland 2. Because if it simply follows in the footsteps of the original Wasteland, it may have problems on both of those fronts. (PC, PS3, Wasteland 2, Xbox 360)

This article makes a whole lot out of nothing. Brian Fargo - since day one - has explicitly said that the game will use tactical, context-sensitive combat similar to the Fallout and Jagged Alliance series. There's no risk of the game turning into an old-school menu-based cRPG.

Yea, IMO it should be complex and old school like Fallout/BG/Planescape, with some modern touch, the last thing anyone wants is another Dragon Age 2.

Come on Joystiq ... those project happens ans are funded because of what old time fans wants . Unless they manage to get funding elsewhere from a big publisher and decide to compromise , dont go expecting that "simplified/dumb crap" that is so trendy right now .

There is a big difference between giving a modern lifting to something that works , and ditching the soul of a game for what's popular now
