i know this is probably of topic but if they did make an oddworld rpg Just a thought. And it just hit me.
Since an Oddworld FPS game (Stranger's Wrath or whatever the name is) is on its way, why not a RPG set in the Oddworld universe?
There are many reasons:
1. OI is open to games and genres/styles other than adventure/platformer. (Thus the Stranger, which is apparently a FPS.)
2. OI has a well established universe (characters, history, etc.) , which is perfect for RPG games.
3. Xbox is lacking in the RPG department. We have a few good ones (Morrowind, KOTOR, Fable, etc., but are still lacking.
Again, just a thought.
