    USGamer has an interesting article in which Feargus Urquhart remembers the last days of Black Isle Studios back in 2003. It also has some bits from J.E. Sawyer as well.
    Here's the article:

    (Thanks @Buxbaum666 for the link)

    Also, a nifty interview with Sawyer.

    Obsidian is definitely working on something with this latest media boost...just publicity for Pillars of Eternity 2 or something else?

    Passion, motivation and drive are contagious. So is work ethic.

    In BlackIsle's case, it goes even further, as they did something they loved and knew it was threatened if they didn't perform.

    Probably nothing Alpha Protocol-related, as the trip is paid for by Paradox and last time I checked, Paradox had nothing to do with this IP.

    They don't have the rights to it. Sega does.

    Which is what I wrote, except for not mentioning Sega.

    Which is why I mentioned Sega.

    Not sure. They are doing too much PR to keep up.
