the website makes your cursor look like it is when running an old PC game

That's kinda cool.

my cursor gets stuck that way even when I leave the site and close the browser

That's less cool. How the hell do I fix this?

EDIT: Rebooting at least changes it back, but I'd like to be able to visit the site without having to do that every time.

Fargo: Would you like to see one of the Synths from Wasteland 2? These guys are going to cause much grief for you.

They were in the first game, but their presence was never, ever explained.

I was talking about new people who check the picture fast and don't notice gears because of the darkness.

Wait, are they in old game with same name? I can't find pictures with search and only things referring to Synth and Wasteland is that pic tongue

Not the same name. IIRC they were called Newmen or something like that and hung around the Vegas sewers. They're supposed to get Character Development in WL 2.
Slightly unrelated but according to this blog post by Colin Mc Comb (he was Chris Avellone's second in writing Planescape Torment and is a writer on WL 2) and some investigation by a number of RPG sites it appears that Brian Fargo/inXile has the rights to Torment but not the Planescape setting.

Mc Comb says he'll follow up on what that means in a later blog post.

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the Eternity thread but I figured it was more relevant here since it's inXile who owns it.

That's interesting. I was sure Obsidian had the rights.
WAR NUG
I think it was Atari or something after Iply lost the rights for whatever reason but either way it's shifted over to Fargo somehow.

If inXile pursues a Torment sequel we'll probably get another inXile/Obsidian collaboration like with Wasteland 2.

Another WL 2 screenshot.

There was also an update recently giving some details on the skill system. Hope you like toast.

Did the original Wasteland come up with the idea of having starting skills based on stats (which is also used in Fallout), or is that even older?

Well, all console and computer roleplaying games share a common ancestry in Tabletop Games like Dungeons & Dragons and so forth.

Just got done downloading it, don't have time to play it, but I remember people calling it funny.

I almost didn't even remember I funded this way back when but now it may be the best $15 I threw away yet.
A love that crushes like a mace.

New update in the email this morning. Posted in full just in case you missed it in the flood of manhood enhancer spam, 8-)

"Project Update #22: The Update Before The Update

Posted by inXile entertainment

The team at inXile is filled with nervous energy to show off what we've been working on. As we're now in full production, we've been making some great strides with the game’s systems. There is still quite a ways to go, but we're near the point where we can show you all a bit of what you pledged to make a reality.

Within a month or so, you can expect a new update which will show a few minutes of actual gameplay. The video will follow a slice of the Agricultural Center, which was designed by Mr. Chris Avellone. You'll see a team of four Rangers running around in the world, some early working HUD elements, a few combat encounters, a taste of dialog, and the ranger team using some of their skills. We’ve been working on each of these systems separately and this is the first time we've put them all together to get a small sample of the gameplay experience. It's beginning to look like a real game!

Keep in mind that this is an early build and is intended as a progress report, not as a demonstration of final gameplay. As always, we want to hear your feedback! It has been a cornerstone of our development up to this point and we beg that you keep it coming as it will only result in a better game for everyone. We follow all channels available to us so let us know with a comment below or on Facebook, Twitter, our blog, forums, or by simply shouting very loudly.

We hope you'll see the potential.

If you'd like to get periodic details of the development process, you can also follow me on Twitter @Ranger Keenan. Thanks and we look forward to hearing your responses!

If you fail some action, like breaking down or unlocking a door, what happens if you just try again in the original Wasteland? Does it have another chance of success, does it prevent that specific action from that specific character, or is it guaranteed to not work because its based on relevant skills with no element of chance?
