  1. Microsoft will own Fallout franchise after March 2021 so my GUESS that Josh will be working for Obsidian's Fallout (may be New Vegas 2) because internally they knew MS is going to acquire ZeniMax.
  2. I believe Avowed is 1st/3rd person game like Grounded. As initially grounded was showed as 1st person on XO19 trailer and later it has the option of playing it also as 3rd person. The only reason it will only be a 1st person if 3rd person gameplay affects the game design which at the moment it doesn't looks a main reason
  3. For me both 1st and 3rd person camera is fine but a game which could be heavily based on armor modification make no sense to be 1st person.
  4. Mate I have an Xbox and to be very honest Xbox Game pass is a must have subscription service.
  5. Tyranny is an amended version of XBOX ONE launch title Stormlands which got cancelled. So we could expect that Obsidian will be making a spiritual successor for Tyranny and it could be multi platform (XBOX & PC). But I don't think it could be isometric as it didn't do well, a 1st/3rd person game could be a possibility.
  6. To be honest I was really disappointed at first but considering its a project from a small team and the majority of Obsidian is cooking something else. We recently have The Outer Worlds so Obsidian has done their job till next whole year. As the game is coming to game pass so I'll try it at least.
  7. I thinks its not only melee focused there will be some sort of ranged weapons
  8. To be honest I didn't like these Co-op games but looking at the Artwork from Craig I'll try this game as it is coming to Xbox game pass.
  9. Tyranny was released on 10th of NOV, 2016 so it could be Brain Heins project and the post suggest release in 2020. It doesn't mean JAN 2020 it could be NOV 2020 or also a launch title of XBOX Scarlet.
  10. The isometric view only appeals to likes of us who had played the crpgs in the 90's. People who started playing RPG from Fallout 3 to onward like 3rd person or 1st person games. Its not bad to bring a change to the series as first two Fallout games were isometric and Fallout 3 was a full 3D with both 1st and 3rd person camera. I could be wrong but in my view games like POE will do great in 3rd person camera prospective gameplay.
  11. Well we spent more or less than 30 mins to create our character for these games and love to see the player move in 3rd person camera prospect. Fallout and TES has the option of both 1st and 3rd person camera and recently RDR2 also have the same option. I know that THE OUTER WORLDS is a low budget game so the production cost might exceeds the allocated budget but now Obsidian is owned by Micro$oft so we hope that the next iteration of the game is a true AAA RPG game.
  12. I give the reference for RDR2 as its a great game else horse shi* game Fallout 4 & 76 also have same feature.
  13. An RPG game which is focused on character creation, armor and weapons look great in 3rd person playstyle prospective. It didn't that mean 1st person doesn't look good but if they can provide both 1st and 3rd person camera like Red Dead Redemption 2 then the gameplay will suit huge number of players.
  14. Well if you guys think TOW is a mediocre wait till Bethesda release Starfield.
  15. Mate can't disagree with you, my first impression was also same that either this guy is a PS fanboy or die heart Bethesda lover.
  16. Yes looks very odd that you are talking to some one on gun point.
  17. I am also waiting for Pillars to come on Game Pass, really enjoying Game Pass Ultimate.
  18. Congratulation team Obsidian. Although I'll playing this game on Xbox Game Pass but also going to buy this game. Its a Gem I need to own.
  19. Just a little question is The Outer Worlds coming on Xbox Game Pass
  20. I agree with you on most of the points but there are some real issues we need to understand. Pillars 2 from Obsidian & Bards Tale from Inxile didn't do well commercially and there was no guarantee that The Outer Worlds and Wastelands 3 could preform well. Its not easy to make a game and more difficult to produce financially. Let me be a devil advocate first: If Microsoft wants to force Obsidian to make a looter shooter then they could bought Gear Box or any other studio who has an expertise in making a looter shooter or the next 343 and Collation game would be a looter shooter instead of Gears & Halo. As the next gen console are on the horizon and Microsoft didn't want to repeat the previous mistake by letting Sony play without any competition so they are focusing on what Sony strength is which is Single player games. Microsoft knows that they are lacking Single person story driven games and they need it in their inventory so when someone is going to buy a new console it will be difficult decision for make. In my view Microsoft bought Obsidian, Inxile & Ninja Theory for story driven single player games and the new Studio Initiate would also focus on single player the team they are hiring has a background of these games. Plus due to game pass Microsoft need content to sell the service and to have content they need a good amount of in house studio to produce. Now on the other side of the coin: Now let's consider Microsoft didn't bought Obsidian and one day you wake up and heard news that Obsidian is closed due to Bankruptcy is this fine for you. Let say Microsoft do the same with Obsidian which EA did to BioWare (I am not taking your example of Ensemble as it is a different story) then we loose interest in Obsidian games and Microsoft has to close the studio or ask them to make what they are best know for. So in my opinion support Obsidian as long as they are making content which they are know for and Microsoft will know that it is in their benefit to let Obsidian do what they want.
  21. I was also thinking the same that the next Obsidian game will be a looter shooter but my friend(who is a Sony Fanboy) told me that if Microsoft really wants to make a looter shooter then they bought Gear Box or ask 343 or Collation to make a looter shooter. They bought Obsidian because of what Obsidian is for not to make them what MS desire. Is he right or wrong I don't know but what ever he said makes seance.
  22. Well every company has their own philosophy to operate their business. Xbox was never considered a bread & butter stuff for Microsoft and will not be for them as they have lots of other accounts but currently we have seen that they are investing money in their GAME developing department either buying or opening new Studios. There are many friends saying I can play Microsoft game on PC, mate you are wrong you can only play these games on XBOX and WINDOWS, both are Microsoft platform. Microsoft doesn't care either you play on XBOX or on WINDOWS as long as your preferred platform is owned by MS. This is why they introduce play any where, game pass ultimate and Xcloud, the way they operate it never looked that they consider Sony & Nintendo as their competitor but want to be in GAME business through different points.
