The SPL hasn't had any credibility for a long time
. They did important work once upon a time but frankly have been a joke for awhile now and it's well known.
And let's be clear here, they only "go back and correct things" because they lost a huge lawsuit for 3.3M when they included a counter-extremist Muslim group in their smear journals. They have a long history of basically targeting anyone who disagrees with them on both the left and the right, it's happened so many times now and as jdreyer said the scope is just appalling. They are a perfect lesson in checking your sources before using them in discussions as context is everything.
Getting back on topic, The Outer Worlds looks absolutely awesome and I really like the tighter scope I'm seeing here in previews. The worlds seem to have a lot more reactivity as a result and it doesn't have that usual Obsidian bugginess going on.
