Wasteland 3 Fig Shares Get SEC Approval, inXile Boss to Step Down Following the Game’s Release

inXile Entertainment’s Wasteland 3 has been a crowdfunding success as it accumulated more than $3.1 million in funding and investment reservations from 17,707 fans. Fig, which allows fans to invest in game shares, has now announced in a press release that Wasteland 3‘s shares have been approved by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). What this simply means is that fans and backers who want to benefit from the game’s financial success can now own a stake. “Fig Publishing, Inc. will soon reach out to investors with details to complete their investments online,” wrote the company. “Backers should review the offering circular for Fig Game Shares – WL3 that will be available on Fig’s website and the SEC’s website.” In related news, inXile CEO Brian Fargo has announced that he’ll be retiring from the industry as soon as Wasteland 3 ships in 2019.

Torment: Tides of Numenera Fixes Are Coming Says InXile Boss

Torment: Tides of Numenera has been out for a week now and it’s mostly been met with positive reviews (check out our review here). But those playing the game on the PlayStation 4 aren’t all having a smooth ride as everyone else. Many have encountered technical issues such as the game crashing, unbearably long load times, frame rate drops, jerky animation, and game-breaking bugs. All is not last for Torment on the PS4 though as the game’s producer Brian Fargo has told Eurogamer that they’re aware of the issues and are already working on updates. We are aware of the frame-rate dropping down on a few of the larger areas with Torment and we are on the case working on a solution. The game is still quite enjoyable but we will continue to provide updates to improve the experience, as we do with all our games. Fargo did not specify if the studio was working on fixing all the issues currently plaguing the PS4 version of the game or when the updates would be released. Torment: Tides of Numenera is the spiritual successor of Planescape: Torment, one of the most critically-acclaimed role-playing games of the ‘90s. Torment: READ FULL STORY…

Torment: Tides of Numenera PC review – When tons of reading and RPG collide
