I guess i did word that wrong, its made its money, but will it be considered a success I should have said "but i cant see how they can update the old 2D wasteland (wizardry/ bards tale style engine) and make it a succesfull (enjoyable) game, nobody else has succeded at it ."
I think you're spot on with this, but at least they're SAYING the right things. Most of us, as classic gaming enthusiasts who grew up with the stuff have long talked about, "...if they just take the original gameplay and perspective and updated a FEW of the elements to cater to modern advancements, that make an incredible game I'd REALLY want...," finally will be getting our wishes. As you say, these projects are already funded and paid for, the right people are in place, the actual buyers of the product have spoken with their support, etc., so everything that could possibly be in place is in place. Now it comes down to the hardest part of all, the execution. Honestly, if Wasteland doesn't pan out, then I see little hope for our vision of PROPERLY updated classics (not innovations, mind you, just what we know and love PROPERLY updated) ever working out since this is well and truly the perfect storm of events to make it happen. If it doesn't, then perhaps we were wrong with what we wanted and should just stick to the originals...
