I'm from Pittsburgh and with the announcement of The Pit I'm considering trying this out? I love Skyrim but never really got into Fallout. I've been sort of turned off from the post-apocalyptic setting given... all of the world... but idk!
As a first Fallout experience, do you think it'll be worth the shot? Curious what the community thinks!
@nickm: I'm confused. You're bummed about the output they put out but they literally announced that May/until their announcement was going to be slow because of behind the scenes stuff. It's not like they're pulling a fast one over on you.
This is probably just jealousy talking, but it seems like the vast majority of people who leave big companies to go off on their own (e.g. KindaFunny, NoClip, etc) use the following that they garner from being associated with a large brand to build the new brand. Essentially using the company they are working for to gain fame and/or notoriety and then cash in. I mean, I would probably do the same, but I'm a nobody. There are a whole lot of other nobodies with zero following out there working their asses off who put out great content and are getting little to nothing out of it.
I'm happy I still get to hear from those guys, but I feel for the little guys out there who see this and think, "Man, must be nice to have a built-in audience and financial backing on Day 1".
I mean... they built their following up since 2008 and even earlier. It's not like they had some investor come in and throw money at them for it.
