Well, Obsidian Entertainment has decided to join the 21st century by hiring a PR manager. Matthew Rorie, formerly of Gamespot, has joined the Obsidian Collective to fill our heads with news of how awesometacular and epic Obsidian is.

He's already hard at work. Look (http://forums.obsidianent.com/index.php?showtopic=49618&pid=851515&st=0&#entry851515):

"Needless to say, I'm a big fan of Obsidian games and am pretty pumped about contributing to the future projects"

Provided this doesn't lead to Molyneux-esque boasting then I suppose this can only be good. Obsidian's track-record on things like updating its website to show awards, interviews, and reviews is pathetic.

Is it some sort of capital offence to not include the OBE after Mr. Molyneux's name?

Now if they had hired a great and famous designer for example, that would be some good news. But a PR guy? Couldn't care less.

Though I suppose, if that guy improves their sales, that could have a positive impact on Obsidian's games. Good thing then I guess. :D

One thing Obsidian needs is a new website. That thing looks like it was made by someone new to web designing, which, I believe, doesn't leave newcomers with a very good impression. I'm not saying they need to make it look fancy (I actually dislike Flash)... just more professional and informative.
