Wasteland 2 Is Selling Very Well, What A Shocker

By - | Views: 19,204
Making the rounds at the moment is the fact that Wasteland 2 is selling very well. Well that's a shocker isn't it!

Reports from our caster Samsai are that it's very good and I think he has a bit of an addiction to it brewing.

Thanks to our friends at IGN we have learnt that in the first four days of exiting early access Wasteland 2 earnt a tidy $1.5 million! That's amazing considering they also gathered nearly $3 million from their Kickstarter and no doubt made a fair bit during the early access days too.

Wasteland 2 is a sequel to the amazingly popular 1988 RPG Wasteland and the post-apocalyptic predecessor to the Fallout Series. It looks good and you should check out Samsai's extensive post and video on Wasteland 2 right here on GOL, or just see the video below:

I bought it to support the Linux release, but I don't know if I'll ever get to play it now that CS:GO is out for Linux ^_^

Day one Linux support so they got an immediate purchase out of me. Also works very well! I've actually had no crashes as opposed to a colleague playing on Windows, so I get to tease him about it a little.

is it a full game tho? with a real story, voice acted dialogues for important characters, hours of gameplay that concludes in a good ending to the plot that has been built up before?

i ask this because i played fallout for the immersion it had with its interesting characters, fun and random encounters and its very satisfying endings. im very sceptical with crowd funded "semi indie" games if they can deliver me that and not just ride the "sandbox crafting is cool" hypetrain. i would buy wasteland if someone tells me it has the same level of love for design, lore and details, but not if its just "fallout battlesystem in an open world where you can do what you like trololo".

i like really classic game, is this one? :(

I'm not really interested in this game, but as soon as I get paid next week I'm getting it, we need to bring Linux games sales up as much as possible if we want to keep getting games on it...

Seriously, this game has all of that. Hours and hours of gameplay, cool story (so far, I'm 20 hours in), good voice acting and basically everything else you could hope for. The guys behind this game surely know how to make a post-apocalyptic RPG and I'm fairly sure you'll be happy to hear that they worked on the early Fallout games and the predecessor of Fallout.

- Real story. Designers and writers from Wasteland, Planescape, Fallout series, etc.
- Important characters are voice acted and fortunately not too much. More text > voice acting.
- About 80 hours of gameplay with multiple routes.
- I don't know how is the ending because I have played only 20 hours so far.

If you have liked isometric PC RGPs so far I would recommend to check this game. Personally I think there is nothing wrong with crowd funded games. After Destiny, Watch Dogs, Skyrim, Far Cry 3, etc. I'm surprised how excited gamers are about AAA games nowadays.

The battlesystem is more tactical and hence better in my opinion.

Watch some gameplay videos and read reviews from PC gamers.
