My favorite part of your Wasteland characters is that their favorite brand of smokes is right up there as the third or fourth thing on their character sheet, right under religion.
I kickstarted both of those games, and have played about 2 minutes of shadowrun, and 5 minutes of Wasteland, but it might have been Wasteland 1 since it was seriously retro 80s Atari 2600 action. I think Wasteland 1 was included as a "stretch goal" to thank backers or something. Maybe punish backers?
Time you spend playing Wasteland 2, Eric, is time you're not painting Deadzone. You make the call.
