Black Isle Studios Name Revived

A Black Isle Studios Website has popped up, sporting an image stating: "Our goal has always been to make the word's best RPGs. Black Isle Studios is back." The idea that the studio behind Fallout and Planescape: Torment is returning is certainly appealing, but of course almost eight years has passed since Interplay shut the studio down, and true to that, Kotaku notes a tweet by former Black Isle mainstay Chris Avellone confirms that Interplay is getting the band back together in name only: "I know nothing about the Black Isle Studio news announcement, doesn't involve me or Obsidian... or well, anyone that I know. ;)" NeoGAF points out the revived company's Facebook Page and Twitter feed are also now live.

Just like in the case of Blizzard nowadays, the name means nothing. It's who is behind it. I'll wait for the original Black Isle developers to release some kickstarter projects.

I think your 'solution' is just as ignorant as your complaint...

What I mean is... Even if you got 'the whole team' back together to make something, doesn't mean what they put it isn't going to be shit...

Explained another way, it's just fixating, or minimalizing other important contributors, such as timing, funding, the market in general, the weather, etc...

Plus, you're really just saying the name of a developer/celebrity matters, which is precisely what you're saying doesn't... I'm a big Edward Norton fan, for example, but he has some (recent) crappy movies, and his personal performance is substandard...

I read and re-read your reply three times and - not trying to be a dick here - I haven't got a clue what you are talking about. The only thing that made sense was the extremely self-evident concept that a new game might not necessarily be as awesome. Well duh!

I'm betting I have an infinitely better chance of seeing a REAL follow-up to the original Planescape or Fallout games via kickstarter. That's it.
