Wasteland 2 Update: Camera, HUD and Dialogues


InXile's latest Wasteland 2 update deals with some of the concerns people had with the recent gameplay video. They discuss the camera system and HUD, and also the biggest point of contention - the keyword dialogue system that many people felt was soulless and restrictive.

InXile is addressing those concerns based on feedback they've received from the community, including adding full sentence previews for every keyword in order to give players a better idea of their conversation choices. They also go into detail about how keywords and skills can affect the outcome of conversations and quests, giving a lengthy example involving an NPC who appears helpful, but may be hiding a sinister motive. Click here to read the update.

that previous trailer bored me to tears, i love actual rpg's, but that game just seemed like it was watching molasses through a fog.

The underlying mechanics to the dialogue system look pretty cool to me. If nothing else, it means that my girlfriend and I can vastly different interactions with the same NPCs during the course of our playthroughs.
