I think my favourite thing about Fallout is the determination of raiders and freeside thugs. Like they see you stood there wearing power armour mowing down their allies with a Gatling gun that shoots laser beams and they think “I’m going to hit you with this pool cue”
In case anyone missed it this busy holiday/con-filled weekend, this is an interview with Steve Jaros, Creative Director at Volition, about his thoughts on critiques and criticisms of the Saints Row series.
He speaks for himself, but his views reflect those of our company (anyone that attended GaymerX’s Designing Inclusive Games panel will recognize the position). And it’s something that many people at Volition, not just Steve, believe strongly in and are actively working on improving.
We’ve made mistakes in the past, we’re trying to do better, but we’ve still got a lot of room for improvement. Critiques like Anita’s are an important part of our continued improvement because “it’s fair to be called out on your shit.”
