I truly think that Ziets surpassed even Avellone in some areas regarding video game writing. It's like a dream-team split apart and I really hope that Ziets lands a job in a team that caters to his talents.

 

(I even more hope that I'm completly wrong and he just changed positions or something like that, damnit. Though it seems unlikely as it just fits too well.)

Maybe he's now at Zenimax Online again? IIRC Chris L'Etoile is there too.

 

I noticed recently in the Dungeon Siege 3 forcum section that George Ziets was no longer marked as Obsidian developer, but thought it was a forum issue...

The ending of the words is ALMSIVI.

I think "Crap" would be the best and most eloquent way to demonstrate my feelings at this moment.

That's sad, I loved your work on MotB. Besides, Obsidian always felt like the best company to allow writers to shine.

 

I hope your next position will permit you to make good use of your excellent writing.

This just goes to show you all what I have been saying for sometime now. If you trust person whose last name is shorter than their first first name, all you're going to get is heartache.

I wish you'd told me this a couple of years ago, it would have saved me a lot of trouble.

 

Also, my best wishes on all future endeavours.

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

I think I'll actually swing by. I've always thought you were ridiculously talented in video game storytelling, you bastard! lol

 

You swine! Karate rap. hahaha Oh well, you got me. Still, good luck in the future, no matter where you end up. I think you worked on.... LotRO or one of the MMORPG titles. I don't know if that's where you go, but you'll undoubtedly do a good job no matter where it it is.
