Obsidian Needs A Level Designer For A "Unique Next-Gen Game"

We're always up for a "unique next-gen game," aren't we? "Unique" is a good word.

Obsidian Entertainment has posted up a fresh job listing that pertains to the aforementioned project. It seems the Fallout: New Vegas developer has a promising next-generation title in the works...

The Level Designer position involves "planning and populating missions/quests, scripted sequences, encounters and rewards," and the game will include role-playing aspects. The qualified applicant will also be proficient in current game engines, including the Unreal Engine 3, CryEngine 3 and Source. Obsidian is also seeking a UI/User Experience Artist with previous experience on mobile or browser-based Flash applications.

This team has had some big missteps this generation (Alpha Protocol comes rapidly to mind), but they do have the capability of doing something special.

Well, we hope.

Alpha Protocol was awesome, you must have just not been playing it correctly.

it had allot of problems, but allot of people looked past those because it did some things so well.
1 thing SO many games have promised this gen and none really have delivered.
alpha protocol is really the only game that has nailed that thing perfectly.
and that thing is your choices changing the game, and actually feeling like they matter!
deus ex human revolution, dishonoured, heavy rain, mass effect 3, 4 perfect examples of games that promised this but really did not offer it.

alpha protocol is the only game that really offered that strive in a RPG, something so many games have been striving for but really have not been able to tackle.
its a shame they had to trip up on so many other things, because the story and character development really was the best weve ever seen!
of course no ones interested in that though, sadly.

It had no more "problems" than any of the bugs and glitches that are in the elder scrolls games, or the recent fallout games. Say one thing that it did "wrong" and I will show you that same thing in all the 8+ rated elder scrolls games that all the critics swoon over.

It was an RPG and people who had a problem with it were obviously playing it like a shooter. I had none of the problems that some of the critics complained about. Sure the AI was a little wonky sometimes, but so was the AI in Hitman absolution, Tenchu, Mark of the Ninja, Splinter cell, Dishonored and pretty much any other game that has stealth in it. Stealth games always have weird AI because they have to get vision cones tweaked to be fair, without making the game unplayable.

Apparently critics can give elder scrolls and fallout 3 a pass on bugs but not Alpha Protocol? So why should I listen to what critics say as the god given truth when the are usually inconsistent as heck and in some reviews they are just flat out wrong with their facts. Binary Domains review on Gametrailers for example is filled with complete lies. Not subjective things either, he is just flat out wrong about several boss fights, gameplay features, and multiplayer.

Also there are 9 8+ reviews for the PS3 version, and 11 8+ reviews for the PC version, on metacritic. So no Ben not all of the critics on earth thought it was bad. Or do the critics who rated it high not count?

I hope it's Fallout 4, but I also hope it isn't. Sure, I'm getting pretty desperate for a new Fallout game, but I don't know about Obsidian. They did a decent job with F:NV, but I want Bethesda to make the 4th installment.

I know a lot of people like to hate on fallout:new vegas, But I thought it was pretty good. I can't wait to see what they do next.

Interesting, obsidian might actually mean the unique part.

P.S. Would it be terribly strange to say I liked new vegas a lot more than fallout 3?

it wont be, but i wish it was a sequel to alpha protocol!
that has to be THE most underrated unfairly slanted game EVER made!
sure it had its issues, but it is THE ONLY game that has nailed what literally every RPG has been trying to do for years!
your choices ACTUALLY MATTER!
and i mean truly matter, not the stupid crap like what bioware has done with the ME series, i mean actually mattered!
another thing that it did so well was it always showed you the consequences of your choice.
for instance i remember a level you had to choose from 1 of 2 doors, and you have to pick one.
now most games would ask you to pick, than carry on from there.
the only way for you to find out what would of happened, what would of changed if you picked the other one was to replay that level.
but alpha protocol actually shows you what was behind the door you did not pick, and how that would of changed the game.
see, the little things, they are what turns a good game into a great game!
but the problem with alpha protocol was it did the small things well, but theres no point in doing the small things well when the big things are not.
alpha protocol was a building built on shoddy foundations.
no point having the best strongest materials out there, if what there sitting on is as strong as wet toilet paper!
