I'm not saying make everyone Mannerites...
Yes you are. :|

*But if true, know that you have made everyone in this thread think that you are; whether or not you intended such.

So a game-maker called Nexon went out of business. Brian Fargo, or whoever is running the twitter page, crossposted the Inexile Careers Open link.
Would you want to see a Wasteland spin-off done in the style of Maple Story? Or Godzilla Defense Force? Myself, I don't think that screentapping is all that good a control button gimmick. Maple story's side scrolling might be suitable, and it'd make a easy transition to the wl1 combat pictures.
I preferred wl1's combat system. It was streamlined to perfection.
-Wl2 and 3 are ok, but the save function still needs to be executable in combat.

Forget the swearing hang-ups. Forget the Serpioids. This has to be the most mystifying suggestion you've ever made.

-The wl3 song "Down to the valley" is ok I guess. It probably works well with whatever setting happens at the time. Yes, there was an update. Check your Inexile link on youtube or twitter.
-The release date is apparently set on August 28th.
Here's the Factions of Colorado link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI19a_UWvcU

-So the beta is over, but they shut down the beta, so we who paid to get the beta can't play it.
Did anyone open the door by the stairs in the New Base medical room?

"I can explain it to them, but I can't make them understand it."

-They've been unable to answer the question "So why is there swearing in this game?"
If they wanted to have text and speech in a game, don't complain that I expect someone to come up with some good text and speech for their game.
-They had a bunch of characters they could talk up instead of swearing in the dialogue. Instead we get this garbage. I don't care how "biker threatening" they tried to make Doresy or Fishface sound. With language like that it just doesn't work.
There was all that stuff about a church in Wl2, is there going to be no callback to that? Or anything about the worshipers of a nuclear power plant in Wl1? Would there be anything like that in wl3? Granted, Wl3 is set in a different place, but even set after the fall of civilization, there are limits to what a game should have. Just a fix-up, just a little removal of swearing, doesn't sound like a bad idea. They could have said things that were so much more entertaining, after all. Why should I, we, settle for such poor content? I hope the combat is better then the "character interactions." If that quality level of work is the same for all of the interactions, that's a heap of the game's time and construction that's going to look messed up.

Yes. The beta is over.

I once rented a movie from Blockbuster, but when the rental period was over, I had to give it back and I couldn't watch it any more.

I don't recall reading anything about the beta being rescinded, anywhere. Forum talk, Inexile page, ads and suggestions and youtube, terms and conditions, etc.

Speak of yourself; it's been asked and answered many times... you just don't care about any answer that isn't blind agreement. ;)

The other bit of news we have for you is our intent to end the Backer Beta mid-June (currently targeting Jun 17). At that time the Beta will be taken down from Steam, and we'll begin revoking Beta key access...

I can't explain how I missed that, but if you say it was there... Of course it seems that I was far from being alone in having missed that.
I'm mostly ignoring the "Dusty and Marie" and "William and Tsing" stuff for now. Anything I should know there?
It just seems like an attention grab, or a good way around advertising by being entertaining. I just don't have time for facebook drama. Still, having a low opinion of twitter is no excuse for what, if completed and compiled, would make a good choose your own adventure story. Add enough dummy paragraphs and you'd have a paragraph book. :D

If you don't believe me, go to the Fig site and look for yourself. Or look through your old emails.

I can't help it if people don't read updates. I mean, that's what they're there for: to update people with what's going on.

So am I. But they're not updates labeled "End of Beta".

Isn't that poor horse dead enough for you?

Dead? Sure doesn't look it if they're making a part three!
