    Sugarbombed released the second part of the recent Chris Avellone review. This one is quite a bit more interesting. Does anyone get the idea that the Obsidian/Avellone split wasn't entirely amicable?

    I honestly wonder what be relationship between Chris and Josh is like now to be honest.

    I don't know how friendly they were with one another to begin with, but I guess something happened between then (according to RPG codex anyway).

    Following the Codex's log on Chris Avellone's comments regarding Obsidian does bring this idea to mind often so I guess this interview adds more fuel to this idea.

    It's a real shame to see the extent of their falling out in these interviews. Hopefully a reconciliation occurs at some point (unlikely as it may be at this point).

    I would like Avellone to take over the writing for Fallout. With him working for them maybe it is possible...

    That would be good (though an additional measure would be to keep Emil away from the writing desk, keep Todd solely in handling promotions, make sure Hines does not handle PR and change the way they've been approaching the franchise).

    So basically what your saying is, it will take a giant sized miracle from the gaming gods in order for us to get a good fallout game.

    The gaming gods are dead since the early 2000's.

    They wouldn't be called miracles they are expected to happen. Emil is an award winning writer in an industry with hacks like David Cage and Ken Levine. They really have no reason to replace him. While better writing would help a new Fallout title, it isn't going to fix it. I rather have Fallout die; in fact, take Bethesda with it, take the entire industry with it, have all of the non-fan gaming news and review site die off from lack of ad money, and have E3 get less coverage than someone who is throwing a handful of pennies on the ground to see if anyone would pick them up.

    Not a bad interview so far. Still it's Sugarbombed, so this is about as good as I expect them to be.

    Nobody has ever questioned the quality of Bethesda's Marketing. The issue is the garbage they're spending all that marketing money on.
