Talking exclusively to Play, Obisidian CEO Feargus Urquhart talked honestly about Obsidian's reputation as a 'buggy' developer and why Dungeon Siege III will avoid the same fate.
I enjoyed both AP and KOTOR2.
I think New Vegas was mostly a result of Bethesda's engine. I mean, Fallout 3 was buggy as hell too. AP was simply rushed by Sega. A real shame too.
I trying to platinum AP, need to play it thought 1 more time.
I wish Alpha Protocol hadn't been rushed out by Sega, it was a stunningly well thought out game with tons of potential... sadly, they'll never get a chance to correct it. That doesn't excuse Obsidian, their games speak for themselves.
I enjoy New Vegas but it is prone to glitching and freezing. Sadly my save data hit 1MB last night and now the game runs like ass. Which makes me sad as I just bought the .50 Cal Sniper Rifle.
I will not buy another game with obsidian's name on it.
Failout: New Glitches Alpha Failcall Both games were good in their own merit (AP was ok with the multiple story paths, and Fallout had far too many damn bugs) however they should have took the time to either polish the games (delays) or stop trying to hype every game as the second comming! My biggest piss off about New Vegas - you can't continue once you beat the main story. In 3 after the Broken Steel DLC it was possible but I hate how you gotta do everything before starting the final mission.
I tried about 20 times on my PS3 copy but I never got past the 15 hour mark before the game irreparably crashed and I had to start over, so I never beat it. I could barely even start it. Never buying a Obsidian game again.
I got frustrated the minute the game wouldnt allow me to complete a mission... I was 30hours into the game. I wasn't gonna start all over.. no way. From now on, no mercy for games with glitches .. I won't bother.
Yep. Same here.
I enjoyed Alpha Protocol and Fallout NV but Obsidian needs to test their games more,too many damn bugs
I enjoyed New Vegas for the most part but Obsidian needs to do the Fallout series a favor and NEVER let it get back into their hands. Its just that simple. Someone else can do a better job.
