    Does this mean there's a chance that an Obsidian game may release thats playable without a ton of bugs?

    I've liked quite a few of Obsidian's games, and even I'd admit that I'm fairly happy if they arrive with only marginally more bugs than 'A Bug's Life: the Game'.

    It has been delayed 3 weeks, not 3 years.

    It is truly sad that Obsidian is the only developer in the entire world that releases buggy games....

    Hopefully they'll release a demo soon. I'm curious about this game.

    With this and the many problems Human Revolution has been having I'm wondering if Square Enix is exasperated with the total ineptitude of western "RPG" developers. It'd be grand if both failed to meet expectations and they gracefully and quietly bowed out of the genre.

    I tried playing Diablo several times over the years and gave up but I actually got through Dungeon Siege 2. Probably because I was drinking a lot of beer and had no internet connection.

    Why anyone would look forward to this as more than a desperate diversion, I'm don't know.

    I'm sure previously sharing a release window with the Witcher 2 didn't influence the decision to delay it.

    MCA smegma addiction.

    MCA is not working on Dungeon Siege III. George Zeits is however.

    MOTB, NV ring a bell? The trend of him getting most of the praise for other people's work is even mocked in the codex' latest year in review. Hopefully I won't have to explain that no, writing a couple of characters is not enough to be credited as the man behind the game.

    He's turned into some sort of anti-Gaider, with Gaider getting blamed for all that's bad in any game he touches - even if it had nothing to do with his work- and MCA getting praised for anything that's good in his games, even if he had little to do with them.

    I haven't seen them, not bothered by cocksucking if it goes on behind closed doors.

    I just wish Saint was still here, and could tell us all about his favorite game of all time Dungeon Siege, as well as what he would hope is in Dungeon Siege III. *sigh*

    There are quite a few openly on the codex and in other places.

    Actually the name George Ziets does the same thing. People actually credit Mask of the Betrayer only to him and leave Kevin Saunders completly out.
