    Hey, welcome to NMA! Also known as the Glittering Gems of Hatred! Good question, but as Ragemage said, direct the questions to the other thread!

    As well as Chris Avellone, could we one day get an interview with either Josh Sawyer and/or Tim Cain?

    That's if the CA interview goes down well.

    Really just depends on if they're as people-friendly as Mr. Avellone. Chris Avellone's a really swell guy, and I'm sure Mr. Sawyer and Mr. Cain are as well, but they might not be as open to the public as he is. Though Mr. Sawyer does have a twitter he frequently uses.

    Yeah, no offense to Tim Cain, he seems more kept in.
    Still, it would be pretty cool if we can get an interview with him, it'll probably be extremely hard through.

    Yeah, I think we'd have better luck with Sawyer. Still, you never know!

    If Toddie had to do an interview with us, he'd probably quit his job soon after. :lol:

    I think he is posting sometimes on the Codex. If he ever did on NMA? Not sure. However, I think they got an interview with him once. Look at the front page of NMA. There you might find the developer interviews.

    I asked him about it on Twitter a few months back, and he said that he would do it if he had an opening. Maybe we could set up an NMA podcast account on Twitter and ask Chris when he can do it.

    So I was checking out some old JESawyer posts and came across this gem.

    It was in a thread from 2004 where there was a Q&A with Todd Howard and he says this.
    Personally, it sums up everything wrong with Bethesda Fallout, but I'll let the Quote speak for itself.


    GS: Fallout had many unique elements for an RPG, including its extensive (and iconic) perk system and darkly comic tone. Will those be present in the sequel?
    TH: Oh yes. Most definitely. "Bloody Mess" is the best perk ever, where your enemies die in ultra-violent ways.

    I actually kinda want to hear what JE Sawyer and Chris Avellone think of each Fallout game, both individually and compared to the series as a whole. It'd be interesting to hear what they think of both Beth's take on the franchise but also their own work.

    I am pretty certain that you will hear mostly positive opinions about Bethesdas work. Anything else would be unprofessional.

    He actually stressed this at Sweden Game Conference a couple of months back:
    „When you are in game development, don't talk shit about anyone.”
    So yes, any question about Beth (or non-Obsidian) games would be wasted, getting neutral or evasive answer at best.
