Awful lot of these MMOTPSs coming out lately. Not necessarily a bad thing (especially considering the huge glut of traditional MMOs on the market), but an interesting trend nonetheless.

Good on them for tapping OSC. He's an amazing writer even if his politics are positively repulsive.

'Ender's Game' is the only really really good one he ever wrote, and to be quite honest he should have all the awards he won for it revoked due to the mass of quackery that was 'Empire'.

I would strongly disagree. A lot of his earlier stuff is quite good as well. I haven't read much of his stuff from the past 10 years or so, but then I generally stop buying people's books when they randomly turn into raging, hate-spewing homophobes.

Still, he could be a good asset for them so long as they make sure he keeps his politics and religion out of the writing. Even his worst book is better than 99.9% of the rest of the market.

So basically it will be his daughter doing the writing, with his name attached so she could get the job and people care?

I enjoyed Ender's Game and all, but has he really had success writing a game's story yet?

Dear FireFall Devs,

Your armor models are very stupid.

Ugh, no thanks. OSC is such a jerkwad I don't want to support anything he touches.

I'm annoyed, I was really looking forward to this game. But OSC is too much of an asshat to ignore.

Besides, book writers rarely make good game writers.

My interest in this game just sky rocketed. I loved the entire Ender's series, especially Children of the Mind.

Knowing what I know about his politics makes it hard for me to support/enjoy anything he writes. Even if it doesn't make it into the actual text, it still ends up colored with "Hmm, this person would make life harder for me and people like me if he could" and that's really not on, you know?

So you will pass on Firefall because the writer has a differing political opinion than yours, which doesn't make it into his writing. That's interesting.

If I had to boycott every project that had a writer disagreed with I would have to avoid virtually every movie ever made, most songs, and books.

Or I could enjoy movies, songs and books, and just accept that the author has a valid opinion the differs from mine; which I can learn to respect.

Well to be fair the post says he's just working on the manga coming out before the game. I don't care for tie-in comics/cartoons anyway.

lol but the manga will probably be "LDS SuperSquad vs. the HomoCommandos: A Firefall Tale"

If HomoCommandos were a playable faction, I might--might!--reconsider picking this up.

@Irem considering its completely free to play and download you don't need to reconsider anything!

Why Manga? I would appreciate a book much more!

I assume that the villains of the game will be gay socialist scientists then, huh. =/

Guess I'll be passing on this one.
