@ChrisAvellone Where you ever bashed on and told you wouldn't succeed when you were wanting to get into the video game industry? Competition

 

 

 

@ImanJavanmardi Absolutely, several times & still to this day. ;) Also happened in PNP game writing (more often). It's why I freelance now.

Don't see much of a point in posting sly, vague tweets, to be honest. It's just fuel for more trolling and flames.

The guys at Obsidian probably deserve it tbh

There's a really cool module he did for Dark Heresy here.

the more chrisA posts such stuff, the more he yields whatever moral high ground he mighta' once held a claim to. the twitter and interview sniping that chrisA indulges in, knowing full well that obsidian has not and will not respond, is getting extreme old.  am actual curious why, given the 'mount o' time that has elapsed since his obsidian departure, some folks keep posting chrisA's one-sided slappy fight with his former colleagues.

 

HA! Good Fun!

You know what I like about Avellone compared to other Obsidian devs? His honesty. He's never afraid to say what he thinks. It was fun back when he was still there and posted a bunch of behind the scenes stuff (like the Metacritic bonus, which was a smart move from him that had improved Obsidian's reputation incredibly).

Whatever the guys at Obsidian may deserve, there's nothing in that post that indicates he was talking about them.

Exactly, he says even to this day. Meaning he constantly gets **** for his writing, but that's just part of the business. Retards gonna retard, no matter how good you are.

Can't find it. Was the topic title supposed to be the joke?

I think he worked on the following for the CHAMPIONS line:

 

Dystopia

Heroic Adventures Volume 1

Heroic Adventures, Vol. 2: Six Adventures for Dark Champions

Underworld Enemies

Lol, honesty from the guy who recently just said that he was jealous of Siege of Dragonspear's writing?

One could interpret Chris' tweet so that people's dissing of his writing has given him motivation to improve his writing skills in level where he can choose which companies he lends his talent.

 

Of course one can also interpret it as dissing towards Obsidian, although in that case reference towards PNP writing don't make that much sense.

 

But drink your tea as you like.
