Basically, take half of the hard drive video and put it into a blog..it's a terrible article but it's pretty amusing.

Got mentioned in Slashdot again today.

http://games.slashdot.org/story/12/05/1 ... rter-games

"The recently funded Wasteland 2 developer Brian Fargo applauds EA's move, saying, 'Having Origin waive their distribution fees for 90 days for fan funded games is a major economic bonus for small developers. We look forward to bringing Wasteland 2 to the Origin audience.'"

Indeed, the winds of change are strong.

So, do we still get the DRM free version of the Game, or is that one out of the Window with the Origin Crap?

How is it possible to not understand that they will distribute the game on Origin among others?...
And how does it make any sense to assume that they would retract their engagement just to give exclusivity to that plateform for no reason? :roll:
What will change the world in the first place is not what we will do, but what we will refuse to do yet...

It was inevitable that EA would find their greasy way in. Scumbags. I was just hoping it wasn't going to be distribution.

Gather Your Party interviews Chris Avellone mostly on his work on Fallout/New Vegas DLC, but some Wasteland 2/Kickstarter talk as well.

GameInformer interviews Brian Fargo, not much news there but worth a read.

I hope I can still get the game another way, cause I gave my money for a "DRM free" game.

What has been posted anywhere that says there won't be a DRM-free option?

This site: games.tiscali.cz, promised to have 2 exklusive videos about Wasteland 2. They even stated to see the game running. Is it even possible?

Considering they just released the vision document, I'm pretty sure that actual gameplay footage is bogus.

As far as I know, Fargo and inXile weren't at E3.

Thus, I'm pretty sure they're lying.

Brian was at E3, but not in any official capacity:

Brian Fargo ‏@BrianFargo

Off to E3 today... I'll just be an observer this one. Nintendo will need to impress.

At best they got an Interview with Brian, at worst they are using blatant fabrication to generate publicity for themselves.
