Chamber of Game: Wasteland 2
Platform: Windows PC
Developer: InXile Entertainment
Publisher: InXile Entertainment
Release Date: 9/18/2014
After the usual drought that is being a video game fan in the Summer (or is it – read Summer is for PC Gaming) the Fall season has begun in earnest. One of the most anticipated games of the year is the Kickstarter-funded, Brian Fargo produced sequel to 1988’s Wasteland, one of the original harbingers of the party-based, tactical computer role-playing game. Wasteland introduced the concept of the post-apocalyptic RPG and eventually birthed the entire Fallout series, which then went on to become something else entirely.
For those of us that still yearned for that classic isometric gameplay of the golden age of the infinity engine and early Fallouts (late 90s-early 2000s), the time for rejoicing is here. This year saw Shadowrun: Dragonfall, Divinity: Original Sin, and now Wasteland 2.
In this episode of Chamber of Game, Chris and Eric suit up as desert rangers patrolling the 80s wasteland of Arizona as they show custom character creation, dialogue and some mid-game turn-based combat.
