hey, you're not showing up in my subscription feed anymore. It's not really functioning anymore :-( Have you considered mirroring everything on another platform as well?

Why are they buying companies which mostly make mobile games ? I thought the had alot of money
omgitsharrypotato! (23 hours ago)
Obsidian only made mobile games cause they needed money, but they were still able to make great games when they had time and money

PlayStation Fanboys keep going ahead and buying their s*** and making their country rich instead of investing in your own country to make them bigger and better I'm sorry Xbox has step their game up and they are going to blow PlayStation out the water

When it comes to obsidian bought by Microsoft. Atleast its not EA.

7:25 Well, with the "I gave them the most amount of cash" bundle you get a pretty big advantage in singleplayer and in multiplayer. Also, *_m i c r o t r a n s a c t i o n s._*
Tricus (8 days ago)
Why can't devs think past the smell of fortune? Why can't they see that being bought can either lead to a big bag of cash at their disposal, ready to be used. Or Microsoft forcing them to release exclusives all day long, tearing them apart -lisa.- I don't want another good company getting ruined by greedy fuxks. I don't want the world to burn more than it's already doing. Why can't we just have nice games?
Hey, at least it wasn't EA that got them.

Fans are stupid. Everyone criticizes xbox for "no games" which is bs anyway... they go out to secure studios to make games and people still whine.

If microsoft wants killer games, they'd best give those studios freedom. Look at sony, i hear they give a great deal of freedom to their studios and the results show.

Black Rose (10 days ago)
If I had my own game studio and it was up for acquisition, I'd like it to be acquired by Microsoft. Though I dont like the platform restrictions. It'll probably be locked in certain regions around the world.
SILENT FLASH (10 days ago)
This is wrong, they should make their own studios not buying well-known studios, and lock previous fanbases, this is scummy beyond belief.

And there goes the last bit of hope for another Fallout Game by Obsidian. And exspect the next CRPGs made by Obsidian, to be very console centered. If we even still get CRPGs.

William Hughes (10 days ago)
Give obsidian scalebound ip they will make a fantastic rpg, I'm mainly a ps4 guy but I have a Xbox and love rpg games also having fun on sunset overdrive at the no I can't believe it didn't sell well
the only way their going to get me to buy a next gen console is if its 60fps. otherwise il spend all that money on my PC/ give it a much needed upgrade
ooooooo! Alpha protocol! maybe a remaster or a sequel?! the only decent spy game

i guess its better for microsoft to have them at least they seem to care about creative freedom and also seem to want to actually make the gaming industry better, meanwhile over at sony they want to keep gaming in the dark ages sure they have some awesome exclusives but nothing else is progressing and they will be fucked in the next few years when consoles die, according to developers like Rockstar, CDPR and ubisoft consoles will be dead/dying after the ps5 era as according to those devs consoles are limited by price and cant keep up with the industry technology, i imagine microsoft saw this happening which is why they have started to move onto pc gaming

Avenger Shepard (10 days ago)
All of this shows that the Xbox team at Microsoft have seen what really matters with a console...and that's games. And they're gearing up for the next gen console. We know they have the team to bring in good hardware and networking now if they can bring the games It'll put pressure on Sony. At the very least it'll pressure Sony to seriously consider cross-play across more 3rd party games.

What about rare games ip
nicesed (10 days ago)
You can't blame the small studios for making deal with bigger companies, because sometimes they have many ideas but don't have funding or people to make it real, just look at Bioware when EA brought them they got more staff and money which led them to create Dragon Age series with the creation of Mass Effect and they also able to create Star Wars Old Republic MMO which is still one of the high budget games spending nearly 250 million dollars which without help of EA won't be possible. And yes big companies do shoddy jobs later but with this their future is secure even if they close the studio they still let the developers work for them on other games.

I fucking hate how low your guy's views have dropped. It's gotta be a bite in the ass to downsize because you're not making enough money, only for your views to drop even further. I hope I don't sound sarcastic, I love you guys. I hope things improve and you're around for a long time. Though I do miss Mike :( was really upset to hear he didn't accept the offer to come back.

There are plenty of games to play no matter where you play.
Fluffy Hedgehog (11 days ago)
depends on if MS has learned anything from sony. if they have and leave the studios to their creativity it would be a boon. obsidian needs money and Microsoft has it. if they go on like they have in the past, the studio is in danger and MS will only sabotage their own xbox brand further.
MetalHeadToker (11 days ago)
15 gig day 1 patch, you've gotta be fucking kidding me. How about you just release a fully finished game?

What people seem to forget somehow - this is a company, the games are made by PEOPLE. Chris Avellone and other of the most talented people from Obsidian LEFT. Because of internal politics, toxicity and hiring relatives.... So this is NOT the same Obsidian that made FNV or Pillars....

Well Obsidian know how to create a RPG game so that all be fun. But now the issue is as they are not independent they will have shorter deadlines. And could get shut down

It's like Microsoft have given up the hardware fight and are instead going to make their money from selling games
Balnazzardi (11 days ago)
Well thats where the most money in video game industry has always come from.....selling consoles themselves has never been that profitable, especially for a company such as Microsoft. If they can pull of what they are trying to do with Xcloud, their "stream and play anywhere, on (almost any device) service, then its even more focused on selling service and games and making money that way. But ofc they are still releasing new traditional console next gen as well.
Claudius Pulcher (11 days ago)
"Oh yes, the company that now constitutes our bosses are great and giving us complete creative freedom." Hey remember how Maxis said that same shit and claimed that they were the ones that decided to make Simcity Always-Online for totally necessary reasons? Yeah. Somehow I don't believe PR from companies that have been bought out.

Microsoft reminds me of the rich kid in school that has no substance. When he see's another kid succeeding, he tries to imitate him and the only way he knows how is to whip out the cheque book. For 5 years Microsoft did nothing to grow their studios and kept saying things like "single player games are dying" while releasing crap like Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 and cancelling games like Scalebound. And now that they see Sony's success they're running around like headless chickens buying studios left and right. I still remember how they purchased Rare and destroyed that company. Microsoft just has no genuine substance.

Let me ask you a question, if streaming gaming work just fine, I will have to subscribe Microsoft streaming service, EA streaming service, bethesda streaming service, Ubsoft streaming service and so on?... Thanks but no thanks, I prefer to buy my console and my game that it's mine and not just rent.

Old Obsidian is dead anyway, Nu-Obsidian is nothing but a shadow of their past, milking their brand to aging fans.
