They aren't hiring Amber Scott. She quit last year. They did hire David Gaider last year though. That is a full-blown SJW too, but he isn't a bad writer at all. So I guess they replaced a really bad SJW writer with a very good SJW writer.
David Gaider is an excellent writer. Dragon Age was amazing and no character seemed forced, or ideological. I went through all their stories & quests, and loved every minute. Maybe Leliana was a bit Mary Sue, but she was likeable enough.
Dragon Age II, for all its flaws, had really, really good characters too. Again, went through all their stories & quests, and again, loved every minute. The main story was something else entirely... quite boring.
I have Dragon Age 3, but I haven't had time to played through it yet. I heard that it was full blown ideological, guess I'll find out this winter. If the rumours are true, my opinion on Mr. Gaider might very well change.
Hopefully, David Gaider will stick to writing entertaining & believable characters & leave his ideologies aside.
Just to be clear, I don't care what sex or political leanings the characters have. My favourite characters from Origins are Wade & Herren (gay couple), Awakening is Anders (filthy communist hippie), and 2 is Aveline Vallen (conservative). I have no problem with any character, as long as it's well written. As long as they're believable, I'll like them.
So I was fucking furious when Beamdog insulted its customers.
Mrs. Scott BRAGGED that she didn't care if her writing felt forced - what kind of serious, professional writer THINKS that, let alone boast about it? Any two-bit writer SHOULD care if the writing is forced - that's the whole fucking point of being a decent writer!
Regardless, Trent Oster is a fucking piece of shit for all the stunts he pulled. Give me back my money, Oster. I regret supporting your scam operation.
