It just appeared to me that this could be only a marketing stunt to compensate for the news of firings and leavings. After all he was on load already for a year, so all his work is already in the game and he was kept, and even hired, during the same time when they fired Mitsoda and Ellinson left. Also so much for the theory they want to save money.
I don't think anywhere near enough people would care about this to make it a good marketing move (I don't think his name has mass appeal). But yeah, it does throw shade at the "saving money" theory.

Well, at least he was already working/helping there, so there is some continuity. I played the first Shadowrun game, and it was enjoyable overall (although the game never felt too "wide", and kept getting narrower toward the end, with a rather tedious final section). I think the budget for their games was always quite small, however, so that probably affected how many alternative paths some sections had.
I figure his role would be more about designing interesting setpieces, maybe small dialogues to open alternative routes, where to allow certain skills to have an impact, and so on, right? The "gamey" end of quests and world design.

Is Carnivore Peter Steele's first band?


No, it's his second, Type O Negative was his third and Fallout his first band.


Aye, this one was written back in Fallout days




Where's my New Vegas...

Whoops, you mentioned they developed the Shadowrun games I've heard about them.
Are those not isometric games? So whatever experience this guy has, it can't help with the first person view gaming which most people found lacking in the demo. Also if he is working on content, how can Outstar claim that everything from Brian Mitsoda and Cara Ellison is still in the game and they are just polishing things?


Yes, they are isometric games.  As for your question I do not know.  I haven't been up to date with Outstar.

If I want to not wait so much for another whisper what should I do?
This is the only way. There are some specific whispers during dialoge too though...

@Barabbah:  As for your favorite Peter Steele song. :rofl:


As for the bands I did not know he was in three bands.  I will checkout Fallout and Carnivore.

Well if he is good at what he does then that's great news.  I never heard of this Harebrained Schemes or their games.  But I will check them out. Thanks for the news!

Edit: Whoops, you mentioned they developed the Shadowrun games I've heard about them.

If that's the case I as Paradox would have offered Obsidian more than Micro$oft to keep them on board.  Well I am not going to panic I will just wait and see.
