Wasteland 2

Wasteland 2 will be done 'when it's done'

inXile's long-awaited sequel is still in Early Access

Development on inXile's Wasteland 2 continues to rumble on after its release in beta form at the end of 2013. There's still no news on when the game will be complete and an update from inXile head Brian Fargo confirms that old videogame chestnut, "it'll be finished when it's finished." Yes, it's the oldest cliche in the book but Brian says that inXile has been working on 2,300 bug fixes and suggestions and addressed almost half of them so far.

"We know better than to give an exact date at this point because in addition to pushing the game in the ways we'd planned," Brian confirms. "But we are in the final stretch, and are thankful our backers have consistently agreed we should take the time we need." Brian also mentions that there's work still being done on things like animation and AI and that backers will see more changes in beta updates.

Like a lot of Early Access games, I've been playing Wasteland 2 on and off since its initial beta release and whilst it's still rough in some spots, the core game is there and works just fine. Some of the changes have been really small, like a re-worked inventory system but the game feels pretty complete so far. Still, it's always good to see a developer sign off on a project and give it the "yes, we're done" stamp of approval but I'm okay with waiting.

and bleh, it seems like there's no way to edit quick posts and for whatever reason, it's cutting off the last two characters of my last post? Tried it 3 times and left it because of it. Well if you saw my previous one: "m!"*

Hope everyone had a good day today regardless of whether you're celebrating valentine's day with someone or like me, sitting by yourself at your PC in a warm dressing gown with a cup of tea :) Mine was okay. Unexciting but I do very much like being warm!

So I bought Xenoblade Chronicles X like 2 months ago. I think maybe today I'll finally take it out of the wrapper.

Splatoon and Undertale fans, please do not walk the path of Sonic fans and Bronies. You are both very young, yet you are dangerously close to that path. Naught but ruin lies down that road.

Played SMESH with RadicalYoseph - had some hilarious matches like this one.

Redesigned Dtoid is super-fancy, but scaling is still fucked and Heavy Reading has odd-colored backgrounds... Still, it's fancy & a shitload more lightweight and that's enough to make me happy.

Here it is as promised, my valentine's day gift to you all. My 2015 Reflection Series comes to a close with my Top 3 Movies of 2015 (I know, it's not games, I decided to try something different). As always, I'll have a blog version uploaded later!

Also, I think my Wii U gamepad is on its last legs... the NFC reader is still kaput, the screen is rather smudgy and the L button is started to stick like a motherfucker. Sooner or later it's just going to stop working altogether methinks. :'(

Nintendo just sent me an email to say "Congrats on your new Wii U!". It wasn't new it got fucking FRIED and now all my stuff's gone after repairs - I was in Chapter 9! Chapter 9! 70+ hours on XCX! And that's just one game! I was- *walks off ranting*
