Perhaps to counter-balance the packed cast of last week, we’ve got a skeleton crew this week. As a result, no Spoiler Warning. But! Double Diecast. Here’s the first one…
How do you feel about the use of radiant quests in Skyrim? Where do you see the potential of randomly generated quests for other games or in the future?
P.S.: I don’t like Skyrim’s radiant quests but I think the system has a lot of potential.
The Unreal Engine 4 launched recently, with a very interesting pricing model. A flat monthly subscription fee and 5% off the top is an amazing direction to go in compared to their previous pricing models and removes the barrier to entry for indie developers. Do you think we’ll see a huge surge of indies using the engine? Are you tempted to try it out yourself? I know I am.
For reference, these are the Necco Wafers we were talking about when we were supposed to be answering the question. My column that will actually answer this question properly should go up on Tuesday.
What do you think of the recent announcement that the in-development World of Darkness MMO has been canceled? Is this a tragic loss, or have they just avoided a situation like Elder Scrolls Online where an MMO launches and fails to meet expectations from the fans?
What is your least favorite game in Spoiler Warning?
44:00 Romance characters in games.
We end with Rutskarn beginning a tale of his very first D&D game. That story will lead off our next Diecast. See you later this week.
