So? Its not a CRPG. I am more interested in J.E.'s work in CRPGs than anything else.

Didn't two other Obsidian dudes join Midway to work on that game too?

But Visc, does JE do anymore RPGs ? I got the picture he's done with

You mean Tom Hall, John Romero and Warren Spector ? None of them are from Obsidian though.

What kind of game is it? Ive played the old c64 Gauntlet but I dont think theyll just rehash that concept.

I am sure that is the case but I liked J.E.'s work in CRPGs. He has a good head on his shoulders for the most part even though grenades aren't melee weapons.

Probably not my cup of tea, I'm afraid. It's like everything else, if folks manage to pull out the interesting facts and post about them here, I'm far more likely to take a real look at it. Otherwise... well, maybe a magazine will have an interesting article or a friend might discuss it with me. Since I follow development more than my friends, though, that doesn't seem likely.

I hope it does well, though. I like to hear about folks succeeding.

I am sure it will do fine. Maybe not a blockbuster but enough to warrant its existance.

Tom Hall, John Romero and Warren Spector are all working with Sawyer on a Gauntlet game?

Wow.

Barring Romero, Midway now has too much talent for it's own good.

And to think it's all wasted on a mindless gauntlet hack n' slash. The gods must be crazy.

Maybe they'll all work on the newly announced Blitz: Playmakerz next!

I thought JE made clear awhile back it wasn't a CRPG

Doesn't mean he can't work on a CRPG in the future. Common, Midway needs a kickarse Sci fi CRPG with J.E. in the lead. Warren can stop him from making grenades into melee weapons, but It would be so kickarse. :D

J.E. Sawyer (Icewind Dale 2, Jefferson, and Van Buren)
Dave Maldonado (Fallout 2, PS:T, Icewind Dale 2)
Tom Hall (Anachronox)
Warren Spector (Ultima Underworlds, System Shock, Deus Ex)

They need to rally together and make something supa.

Together they could make that one cyberpunk sci fi game that I have always wanted.

May their powers combine! (w00t)
