    "In this version of Tyranny, and hopefully there will be many to come..." "As we develop the IP further..." Sequel already in the works?

    They're still playing on Very Easy difficulty. Boo.

    Confirmed that the girl with the white hair is a potential companion. So that's at least five companions.

    That's what I'll play it at, unless they have "story mode" or "enjoy the story you rotund faggot" modes, so this is informative.

    lol microphone off

    No different C&C. Boo again.

    There's no voice acting because they hadn't recorded it yet. The next stream will have it.

    Different C&C! He betrayed the rebels.

    Still attacked though lol

    Yay, he replied to my question about C&C.

    This scenario doesn't have as many choices as others, Brian says.

    Oh god not the mic again

    Next stream will focus more on combat, with higher difficulty

    And it's over. Hey, new music.

    It was basically the E3 preview video, but with a lot more explanation. This is the new best gameplay video now.

    So is C&C mostly cosmetic? Disappointing if so.

    If you're referring to what I said about getting attacked even if you betray the rebels and try to return to Kyros' side, then not quite because the rebels still hate you too. So in theory it's an entirely new path where everybody hates you.

    I very much doubt this will involve 'completely new paths' akin to Witcher 2.

    Thanks to Something Awful, I've discovered that Tyranny has undergone Bioware infiltration:

    http://www.alexanderfreed.com/bibliography/

    "Editorial consultant" = a very blatant "We want the Bioware audience." :D

    I'm only familiar with the Dragon Age comics he scripted. He nailed "Alistair is a big whiny baby."

    Why would they hire a freelance editorial consultant? Mandated by Paradox, perhaps? Like how Ubisoft brought on the Bioshock 2/Magic Circle guy Jordan Thomas to help with South Park.

    It could have something to do with the recent departure of an employee who fulfilled a similar role. :M

    BTW, Roguey's source: http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...06905&pagenumber=845&perpage=40#post462152094

    Also, apparently the name of the white-haired chick was mentioned somewhere? http://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3780898&pagenumber=6#post462152384

    Roguey ,thanks.
    I've stated before that classes reminded me on KOTOR ones and rule of the two has similar equivalent in Tyranny. So, this is some kind of proof I've got the right vibe of the game.

    You know, first I thought that Obsidian developers were like “Ok, I want to do something really good, but since most players are illiterate popamoles, we need to dumb down everything in order to survive”. Now, is more like “Ok, our target audience is those guys, the Bioware ex-fans. We need to hire that guy that worked for Bioware to keep the juices flowing – dude makes “a cha ching!” song of cash register and laughs. Let’s put that “thing” those grognards called cRPGs out there quickly, because I need more time to do really important stuff, like watching football and stuff”.

    Back in the day I used to salivate at the prospect of a new RPG, especially an isometric one. Nowadays, the anticipation just isn't there anymore. I confess, I don't know much about Tyranny and it might very well be mint in every regard. Looking at Obsidian's recent track record, however, makes me doubt it. That's all.

    Obsidian really should be everything I want. Or should have been, at the very least. News of an upcoming Obsidian RPG should galvanise someone like me, instead of mildly prodding me and make me involuntarily shrug my shoulders.

    I think they mentioned in the recent stream that VO recording was underway.

    I like that guy's voice but it's always kind of a disappointment to hear voiceactors "repeat". I hope the other companions won't feel like "oh, that's Edér, and that's Sagani! And that's... etc" More variety please.
