So... I just saw the new update on FIG.... I cannot say I'm happy... I mean, MacTavish? After almost 6 months of silence you throw a 3d character?
I love INXILE, I said a lot of times that for me Wasteland 2 is a game that we play once in a decade. Having almost 7 (or 8, I don't remember) full playthroughs, I extremelly enjoyed playing it. But this update is very little... Sorry for my critisism, I love you all, just I got a bitter taste from this update that I wanted to share. Hope to see or hear from you soon. Best regards

Yeah, I am with you - it is a bit shallow. I wouldn't mind such an update after one or two months but nearly half a year later?
Well, I really hope they have something big to show on E3.
Updates are extremly dissapoiting so far - but all this will be forgotten if the game itself is really good.

I know that the Mac Tavish thing is a crumb in relation to all the time waiting, but so what. We got something. Me, I just hope they can write a scottish character without a) swearing all the time b) ripping off the movie "Brave". And of the two, 'a' is the important one. I wonder if he has his own recipe for Hobo Dogs? Would they call it something different in the UK?

A month ago inXile was looking for a new Senior Writer for Wasteland 3: Gamepur.
It is unclear at this time whether this is regular turnover or they were unhappy with their previous Senior Writer's work. The job description is potentially telling with "Ability to adapt to feedback and style requirements of our project" listed under Qualifications, and "Write and revise dialogs in our branching dialog tool, including creating new dialogs from scratch" is one of the major responsibilities asked of the new Senior Writer. This is a clear indication that major rewrites and revisions of the previous Senior Writer's work are going to be a large part of the new Senior Writer's responsibilities.

Huh. I did not know that, Executor. And here I am with a no published works, and a day job that I know will keep me away from the meetings required. And the geographical distance. I wonder if I could just whip something up? What would the page count on that be? The format? How would they want a writer to handle branching storylines? Curiosity aside, they've probably decided on someone by now, anyway. Maybe they wanted some writing done for a stretch goal segment. I hope they decide on something appropriate and entertaining. And for the new guy, remember: Every "f- you" is a missed chance to tell someone something like "Shouldn't your village be sacrificing you to Trash Slitherers? Or are you here because they put an actual drunk in your normal cell?"

I wouldn't worry to much. Let's just wait for what they show us at the E3. Maybe they just need a new Senior writer, because they decided to make Wasteland 3 bigger (loatation- and/or storywise) now that they are under Microsofts wings.
It would be in Microsofts interesst too, that the last game InXile is doing through backing is a good one, that leaves the players aching for the next games.

If it is, only the scottish can figure it out. Maybe parts of Ireland.
Now let's take a look at scottish depictions in the American-local pop culture. (English-location pop-culture seems to all hate the scottish due to hereditary snobbyness and general inherited-grudge-holding.)
Scotty from Star Trek. No swearing.
Brave, the redhead archer girl movie from Disney. No swearing.
Indiana Jones and the last crusade. No swearing, some punching.
The Scotsman from Samurai Jack. No swearing.
So all in all, it looks like a clean bill of health, yeah? I should probably take a moment to underline the Scotsman from Samurai Jack, as one way or another, that's the main focus of Scottish in American locale pop. culture: Belligerence. If you can do that without swearing, then go right ahead. Because removing your main writing crutch will force you to use your underused brain while writing the scenes. It's the belligerence that you want anyway.
Of course, this is Wasteland, so Mac isn't scottish from Scottsland, he's just some guy who went nuts and started in on being scottish and you have to kill him to stop him.

You make an interesting argument, Gillsing.

Y'know, I'd tend to agree with you. I have seen that happen one too many times.
