I have him in my friends on facebook, I didn't know, that he is hiding his profile. I can post a screenshot if you want.

I wonder if that wouldn't ruin the point of hiding it :)

Good point, so you will have to believe it, he is indeed working for Obsidian now as a senior programmer. :(
I guess the next Fallout made by Obsidian, if there will be any, will be even more Fallouty than New Vegas. :D
I also hope that Tim will be doing some design work, besides programming.

I believe you. Not saying "don't share the info" either. Only consider the whys and wherefores first, then act upon it :)

Okay, does that mean we get gay romances in future Obsidian games now too?

I wonder if he will be made a Project Director in the next few years? He's got the experience for it, I suppose!

Project Director of the next Fallout game on the West Coast. Make it happen Bethesda/Obsidian.

Anyway this is great news. One step closer to a Troika/Obsidian dream team.

For now I'd just be satisfied if it worked better than with, say, Mitsoda.

Oh yeah, me too. I don't express it, but there is always that fear that maybe things won't work out. Cain knows some people in the team already, that should help I suppose. Also, the ones who are making a very big deal out of this are the fans, not Obsidian or its employees. To be frank, I wonder if we're not blowing things out of proportion. Well, at least those who have played Tim's games.
