Wasteland Reboot in the Works

"The fans started pinging me first," says Brian Fargo, CEO of inXile Entertainment and developer on franchises like Fallout, A Bard's Tale, Wasteland and a host of others.

He's speaking about his recent decision, inspired by the success of Tim Schafer and Double Fine's Double Fine Adventure, to make an all new Wasteland game. Ultimately it was his decision to start having preliminary meetings about the new project, but it started with vocal fans. Wasteland, for those too young to remember, was the 1988 RPG based in a world ravaged by a nuclear apocalypse. They didn't have the rights after making the first game, and thus he and several others went on to create the Fallout universe. Having recently reacquired the rights, Fargo wants to bring Wasteland back to the forefront.

I loved this game back when I played it on my first IBM PC... 8088 processer? I forget but man was this a wicked fun game. It just pissed me off that when I got close to the end... I was in this rail station or something and the only option I had was to get on the train and then the game would crash No internet, no way to really find out WTF was wrong... I never did get to finish the thing. A new one could be way cool though.

1. I hope they don't go fallout 3 on us

Fallout 3 is an allright game I guess but it isn't a turn-based adventure game.

2. As much as I hate to say it, I doubt you'll ever see another turn-based game in your lifetime.

Too much of their profit relies on the brain dead button pushers (usually on xbox or ps/3) who, if they aren't pushing a dozen buttons every second, get bored. Having to thing out strategy ahead of time is simply over their head.

3. My all-time favorite gaming experience

I hope they find some way to keep it turn based.
