As things are going now, if I were Obsidian, I would release it DD only, in a non-crowded month and rely on word of mouth.

Not that they could, with SEGA(most likely) owning the IP. I think some game developer said that the first thing to do was to make sure that you own the IP and not the publisher.

Also it wouldn't work too well with the whole multiplatform thing.

Last I heard Obs owns the IP, but it was secondhand info IIRC.

Also, where is the link to the big SEGA announcement that AP is delayed indefinitely? And no, 8 different dates and publisher silence isn't an indefinite delay.

@Raithe: Third person combat and "cinematic dialogue" = Mass Effect. The only thing missing is the stealth and the spy stuff.


Oh I do get why a lot of people get a Mass Effect vibe.. just my personal one is much more Deus Ex. <shrugs> Points of view and all that perspective. It's just the way it feels to me.

Sega holds the trademark registration, which is usually (but not always) a good indicator of ownership.

And Feargus said in a Gamasutra interview that Sega owns the IP.

Ya I certainly see a big ME thing. The combat mechanics seem very similar to me.

I hope Obz doesn't have to delay the game on account of some vague instructions to make the game more like ME though. Ugh.

Thank God for 24 hour Walmarts. I picked up my copy 1 hour ago, and I have to say that so far it's pretty disappointing. Worst frame rate from any Obsidian game. I've uploaded a gameplay video so you can see for yourself:

Review to follow shortly!

What the Christ...? How did they get it to slow down and speed up like that? That is not right at all.

Tell me about it. It's almost as if the software code was written from vapor!

Out here in the Wasteland, I was raised by Deathclaws. I had to fight against blood thirsty Radscorpions and rabid Molerats to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Canada.

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves Cat's Paw magazines.
