    Well, what I thought it would happen (MCA writing 1/2 companions and contributing more as a supervisor) confirmed itself.

    Let's just hope Paizo will edit the (probable) clusterfuck or it may be a second coming of TTON

    I'm really curious to know who the other writers are now, who worked on the game before MCA joined. Are they Russian Owlcat employees? People from Paizo? If they've got people who can write well in English why aren't they pitching in with these Kickstarter updates?

    Zero curiosity here.
    I want a game on which MCA writes everything, from the menu to the credits (like he did in PST), I don't care about anyone else.
    But sadly it seems I (we) will never have it since he is busy working on 10000000 different projects and his iconic writer status is just being used to get attention and, sometimes, money.

    It seems his role is relatively small, as most expected.

    Other quotes:

    About Kingdom management:

    They should be careful when selling the kingdom management mechanics. Something "pretty Game of Thrones" would have to resemble CK2 at least. Then again, the kingdom management stuff is the best shot they have at standing out, so I don't doubt it'll be a big part of the game.

    He really seems on board with the whole thing, already talking about working with them long term.

    That'd be the only way I'd be sold on this since I got a little taste of what something like that can be like in the last act of Witcher 2 & PoE's patched in stronghold content. But I'm not willing to bet on if they could deliver since their marketing is manipulative so far, its all about what PoE was praised & lacked/criticized for, I don't find them all that genuine. Will see when it releases.

    Nobody really cares if there are gay characters, I actually find it amusing if I run into some flamboyant gay guy while adventuring. It is the Bioware style major faggotry (of companions) that is annoying.... or random NPCs lecturing the player about homosexuality or trannies.

    That said, the Witcher 3 was a huge success and had absolutely no faggotry to speak of, and nobody even cared. That is something the devs should consider.

    Well there was this drag queen dude who sold you the mask and the suit for the ball. I also dont get this whole discussion. Both sides are so obsessed with wether or not gays are in the game. As long as the game doesnt become preachy i couldnt give less of a fuck.

    Huh, they finally found out how to sell The Gay Agenda™ to the Codex.

    I wonder what'll happen when MCA announces that he's actually an Ethiopian Jewish Communist.

    More seriously, MCA, for all his antics, sounds like the kind of person who is very inoffensive politically. He probably voted for Hillary in both the primary and the general election.*

    He doesn't seem like the type to vote at all.

    *yawn* if you thought this was an MCA game you were an idiot from the start. If the Russians do a good job, it'll be a good game.

    So it is DRM-free, after all? Damn, now I'll have to upgrade to a higher tier since almost everything in that AMA info dump sounds great and the few things that don't aren't major minuses, either.

    Is anyone really expecting him to write the whole game again?
    Now that he is respected and well known, he does not need to do such crazy stuff. None of the other big names do.
