And so I have a quick question


Recommended Posts

While NwN2 is an Obsidian game, BioWare made the original NwN 1 game. When teh time came to make NwN2, Obsidian chose to keep their forums here since the NwN community already existed here.

 

Now that we are closing the Legacy forums, I thought it unfair to leave the NwN2 fans without any forums anyplace, so I moved them here.

:p

I don't see anything particularly unfair in what they did. It was Obsidian/Atari's choice in the first place to leave the NWN2 forums on Bioware's site to keep a sense of community etc.. etc.. Not much will change considering the NWN2 forums will still be on a Bioware's proprietary forum.

Define "choice" :bow:

You think BioWare strong armed Atari into making the decision?

Nah, I think it was Atari pulling the strings, looking at the market, fan base exposure and economics side of things. I doubt many people outside the companies involved boardrooms knows for sure what went on though.

Even if it was an Atari's decision I'll be honest and say that I doubt Obsidian cared that much.

And it wasn't that bad as a decision imho.

It was Atari's choice. Not Obsidian's or BIO's. If I were BIO, I would have told Atari no since BIO pretty much gets niothing out of the relationship anyways.

And I suspect EA isn't terribly pleased with the situation, either.

God used to be my co-pilot, but then we crashed in the Andes and I had to eat him.
