Bethesda are to be commended, doing such things to show that anyone can work in gaming.

Now they need to fire Todd and I may start believe in Bethesda... never thought that getting owned by SmallMeak would be considered a step up...

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Yes firing Todd and Pete but keeping Jeremy Soule (His talent is wasted on Bethesda) and maybe some of their more talented crew members would be the best.  With the disaster of Fallout 76 could be a real possibility especially if they fail again.

I can honestly say I didn't see that coming.

With Outer Worlds and Avowed I don't think Obsidian will be doing Fallout again, but who the **** knows at this point? Maybe Microsoft will scoop up EA and Obsidian will end up making KOTOR3.

Dear Microsoft, for Christmas, could I please have an Alpha Protocol 2?

 

Who owns the AP IP at the moment??? That would have been my preferred MS acquisition 🤔

Sega.

Now that I think of it, Obsidian could have been working on Dungeon Siege 4 this whole time as Microsoft already owns the ip.

And hire Carmack!  I know Doom 3 was a disaster but Carmack doesn't have to be the lead designer.

Oh, the Obsidian making a new Fallout hype is real!

Dishonored is my favourite game series of all time as well, so they'd better take good care of that fantastic IP!

And I'm just relieved that it wasn't Epic and their Epic exclusives. I'm for one is perfectly fine with Microsoft acquiring Bethesda. I like what they did with Minecraft and Mojang for the most part.

With games like The Outer Worlds and Avowed, I wonder if it makes sense for Bethesda to continue working on Starfield or TES sequel. Obsidian should come up with its own post-apoc shooter and then they should finally stop copying Bethesda and start working on PoE III.

Considering that Microsoft now owns both Obsidian and ID Software... Doom meets Outer Worlds sounds like a nice blend to me.

I almost wanted to ask what disaster Doom 3 was but then I noticed... well, never mind then.
