The day is drawing near - The 19th of September, Wasteland 2 is officially released for PC, Linux and Mac OS X. Much in the same spirit as Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics, Wasteland 2 is a sequel to a game released 26 years ago. Now.. Let it be said: I deliberately know very little else about this game. I have avoided Steam early access and any other outlets as to avoid spoilers as much as possible, to make the game more worthwhile.

Sweet! I got a cheap key from eBay but held off playing to get an idea how complete the game was. Yeah, I'll be starting it soon now. :)

I've been following this for a long while. Want to play the first one before I play this... Too bad most Fallout fans will skip over this thinking it's got no relevance to the series.

Yeah, it's a great leap for newer fans to make. But also one that can be highly rewarding. It's one of those games you'd gladly revisit every year if you got the chance. Rich on choice, humor, and you don't have to choose between good story or good characters (personal view point from FO3 and NV). :)
