    I was thinking that while we wait for the game we could have a wish list.

    Here's mine:

    - Less traps

    - Total rebalance of skills

    - Please make perception part of awareness

    - Fix armor system

    - Moar skill checks. Not just the various "ass" but also Checks for Demolitions, weapons, traits (Psychopath would open up a lot of interesting opportunities), "SPECIAL" checks (charisma etc.)

    - dialogues with companions and companions quest

    - Better quality writing

    { I'm not saying it's bad, but it lacks characters standing out like Caesar and House or even as funny as Raul. I really miss Caesar talking about dialectics)

    - an original plot with an interesting antagonist with compelling arguments on his side

    - less judgmental companions and more opportunities for egoistic/evil rangers.

    - more and better perks

    More reactivity and less linear would be the top priorities for me. Also choices that matter and give consequences later on.


    I would also wish for better exploration and random encounters. And maybe a better mutated fauna? I mean in WL2 you fought giant frogs and badgers but I would like something more unique and terrifying than that.


    And Scotchmo as a companion! He could have traveled north, he's a hobo after all.

    Yeah, random encounters should really be a thing in this game. Location wise I'm happy with the number of places you can visit, though I admit that some secret spot or a bad ass military base would be interesting.

    Most important thing regarding exploration is that there should be a greater number of fighting scenarios as they get old pretty fast. However I believe that this game needs more quality than quantity

    PS I'm new, which way to the bar?

    I waited 26 years for a sequel to Wasteland, and when it finally arrived, it gave me motion sickness (a good metaphor for the whole RPG renaissance, but in the case of Wasteland, I mean it literally).

    I'm not entirely sure what was wrong with it, but there's something dodgy about that camera. My only wish for Wasteland 3 is that they fix whatever that was.

    That's a big one I forgot. Fix the damn camera.

    My wish list:

    -less scripted sequences in the game (Arizona suffered from it way more than California with everyone dying in Happy Valley, some unsavable NPCs and destruction of Highpool/ Ag Center)

    -absolutely no fucking escort missions ( those with Red and Bart in Damonta made me quit a game for few weeks)

    -better crafting (weapon mods' effects weren't noticeable and I didn't bother leveling in that skill)

    -better companions' skill set (I didn't use anyone outside of Angela, Scotchmo, Vulture's Cry and Pizepi as everyone else had really bad skills or were inferior to those companions)

    -better antagonist (Matthias felt interesting at the beginning and at the end, in the middle with all his mass killings his writing felt kinda lazy, also his questline could be a little bit more than "kill everyone armed in every major settlement)

    -better difficulty curve (I played on hard, up to Damonta I had no major stops, but there I've had to save scum all the way through it- partly to those giant robots with saws and escorts. Then I've had rather easy time, until I've met God's Militia. They and salt dealers from Hollywood were a bit challenging. Matthias boss fight on the other hand was nothing. Beat it on the first try with only my team and Vargas)

    I've had problem with Ag Center/ Highpool due to it's bad scripts. After saving Highpool I set off to Ag Center without even using elevator assuming that you can do both if you're fast enough. When I got there I got the message that they can no longer keep them away from control room- but the place was already destroyed. I thought that I'm experiencing some kind of bug so I spent around an hour reloading saves.
