My heart grew three sizes today when Tim Cain said yep, it was official - he was going to stay and work with us full-time.


It's the best day an Obsidian fan could possibly have. (As a fan of course)

I knew my passive-aggressiveness would have worked! I knew!

..I also know that this doesn't mean they're working on a new Fallout title though, which is heartbreaking :(

Arcanum's lead designer is now working for the best company when it comes to stories and worldbuilding?
Best video games news of the year! I remembered back in the day when Troika closed his doors and Tim decided to work with Garriott on... a MMORPG. I wept that day, men. I wept.

So many ripe mind grapes ready to have their talent juices squeezed into a game.

someone from a company with a reputation for bugs joining a company with a reputation for bugs... I reserve judgement or hope they cancel each other out and result in bug free products.

Everytime an old BIS/Interplay employee joins Obsidian, another PST/Fallout 1 copy gets sold somehwere.

Yeah, Troika had a well-deserved reputation for buggy titles, and yeah, they were bad at planning. But God, if that's what you see or think when you see this news... you're an empty and hollow person son :(

Maybe so. I played a lot of games after the fact (like years after release) so my attitude is likely to be somewhat different to someone who experienced things "in the day"

@Flouride DS3 was a solid title granted. But it will take something with a bit more ambition to shake that reputation.
