Brian was on stage at MCM London earlier today showing the Wasteland 2 opening movie and talking about the game and crowdfunding (you can watch the presentation onResero Network’s twitch through this link).
Of course we’d like all our backers to see this opening movie, so we put it up on Youtube for you. Enjoy!
Brian Fargo, creador de Interplay, quien mantuvo el grupo Black Isle dentro de su empresa, ahora vuelve para cerrarles el orto a aquellos que hoy en día, crean juegos que consideran fríamente RPG.

Guys… It looks like we are getting Wasteland 2.
I can’t even tell you how incredible this is to see. Everyone at Interplay deserves a lot more than the shit they’ve been getting, and with Brian Fargo spearheading this, I think we’ll really get something amazing. I’m so sick of Interplay being down on its luck. I know this isn’t actually TECHNICALLY Interplay, but still, it’s most of them.
For those of you who don’t know, Brian Fargo was the founder of Interplay, which created Wasteland, Fallout (which was the spiritual successor to Wasteland), and Baldur’s Gate. Interplay has been down on its luck lately. They recently tried to make a Fallout MMO, because they were just letting Bethesda borrow the right to the franchise, just for three games, but Bethesda sued their pants off over it, and ended up winning, gaining complete control over the entire Fallout franchise. Since they lost Fallout, obviously, they decided to go back on Wasteland. And now we’re almost definitely getting the sequel.
Now, Wasteland came out in 1988, so it’s a bit odd to make a sequel to a game 24+ years late, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s worth it. And knowing Interplay, it will be incredible.
If you’re a fan of Fallout, definitely check this out. And even though they’ve passed their goal, THAT DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULDN’T CONTRIBUTE! :)
Fallout: When and How to Protect Yourself (1959). This 1950s film describes what fallout is and how to protect yourself. Watching this is almost like watching the opening sequences of the Fallout series of games. Don’t forget your Pip-Boy.
