Timothy Cain YouTube channel

Just want to give a small tip here. It seems Timothy Cain of legendary games such as Fallout and Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura has started a YouTube channel where he answers questions, and goes over development issues on the games he has worked on.

Usually, those titles start out okay, but then eventually turn into a masochistic experience of pure suffering. I believe a review can be worth it in both of these cases still, maybe to act as a warning or to just get something out of the wasted hours in front of the screen.
