Wasteland 3 *sigh*

Hawkwing7423:
Wasteland is my all time favorite video game from when I was a kid, playing on the Commodore 64. I also enjoyed Wasteland 2 some years ago. So I kickstarter funded Wasteland 3 4 years ago.
My first thought was how slow they work when they already have a lot of their money. It makes me wonder how beneficial Early Access is. Maybe I am being unfair but 4 years for a game seems excessive.


I finally finished my 3rd run through Pathfinder: Kingmaker and started up this one last night. I am not very far but it seems like all the tropes of the coastal elites are already present in the game. The bad guys so far are white, inbred incestual rural hicks, talk like hicks, who kill and cannibalize people to old 80's Christian praise music. Again, not very far yet but it seems like another example of white rural Christians being the favorite targets of the literati. It's getting tiresome and predictable. But it shows a mindset of what such think of white, rural Christians.

Arkansan:
Huh, if that's the case I'll have to pass on it.

4 years for a game of that scope is absolutely fine and normal.
Game development isn't something you can just throw money at to make it faster. At least not a lot faster.

Seems like someone has gotten extremely thin-skinned here and sounds exactly like the kind of person that would go nuts if the enemies were, idk, black voodoo types because that would of course be racist.
I guess black voodoo enemies you actually wouldn't mind, but hillbillies are of course a statement of the designers and developers about how bad white Christians are, trying to indoctrinate and propagate their anti-white propa yadda yadda yadda...

I can't even really blame you, with the constant barrage of woke media presence, it is easy to just have enough of everything and see everything as preachy even if it isn't.
But you should watch out not to become the exact same type of raging extremist, just on the other side of the coin. Horseshoe says hello.

Actually reminds me of a discussion I had when they released the trailer a while ago:
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2020/07/wasteland-3-for-linux-and-mac-delayed-possible-by-end-of-2020/comment_id=185938

At some point, you have to ask yourself:
If black people are out because one side gets triggered, and white people are out because the other side gets triggered - what is still allowed to be an antagonist?
And what can you still bring that won't cause some people to get their panties in a twist?
Or, maybe, just take a trope as a trope and don't try and interpret the entire world into it?


The game is massive, and the Dorseys are just one of many factions (and actually a minor one you can't even ally/work with), including more tropes than I could list, anything from god-president worshippers over monsters and slavers to sacrificial cults:

Sure, if someone doesn't like a good old barrage of tropes, then Wasteland is absolutely the wrong game series for them. Wasteland has never been a very serious game and always took some jabs at political events.
However, I think they did leave out zombies here ;)

That's why we have zombies. It's so we can have people butchered horribly in large numbers and not feel bad about it :)


It's either that or you have those multicultural gangs you get in all those 80s cop movies.

The funny thing is that I have seen people complain about the skin color of zombies, citing that as some "obvious racism", of course.
If you think zombies are safe from nutjobs, I'm afraid I have to disappoint you ;)
