Wasteland 2 Publicity Blitz: Brian Fargo and Chris Avellone Interviews

With the conclusion of Brian Fargo's media tour in Europe and Chris Avellone's visit to AVCon in Australia, a ton of new Wasteland 2 interviews/previews have been published across the Internet. They tend to focus on describing the game's reactivity-centric design philosophy, along with a variety of examples of said reactivity. A few of the interviews, such as the ones at Eurogamer and Gamasutra, also contain some behind-the-scenes information about the game's development process, including budget details, which is pretty interesting.

Here's a list of all the interviews I could find, several of which are in video format:

So, Wasteland 2 reactivity, not just Ag Center vs Highpool after all. Looks like things are shaping up nicely.
