Matt Chat – Interview with Brian Fargo, Part 3

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 31, 2011

Here is the exciting conclusion of the interview with the man who created the company whose motto was, “By Gamers, For Gamers.” And, alas, the story of the fall of said company, which brought us The Bard’s Tale, Wasteland, Fallout 1 & 2, the Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale series, Planescape: Torment, Battle Chess, Star Trek: 25th Anniversary, and of course – Boogerman: A Pick & Flick Adventure.

And as far as his comments at the end concerning an upcoming Armchair Arcade Radio program: Yes, it’s true.  I get a little adventurous.

    I love Brian Fargo, Even with his “Princess Bride” Bard’s Tale game.

    He was the only person to feature himself in a boxshot. I can’t really recall what it was, but I do remember he really liked his body 😀

    Now with that said if he doesn’t do anything with the Wasteland IP he has acquired I will personally fly back to America to punch him in the face to remind him he needs to do something with Wasteland.

    Seriously, with the success of Fallout 3 and NV, he is an idiot to be holding onto that IP and do nothing with it.
