I said it in the comments on Update #6 on Kickstarter, and I'll repeat it again here -
Please no social aspect. I don't personally find multiplayer ever adds to my fun with cRPG's... and even "no balance altering" message and item sending is turning me way off
. With one update I've gone from unbelievably euphoric to suddenly cautious. PLEASE if social stuff is added, make a toggle or some such so we can completely remove it from being noticeable for those of us "Luddites" who don't use Twitter, Facebook and who still get together, OFFLINE, with friends to socialize and play multiplayer games (table top.)
The update doesn't mention Facebook or Twitter (or any other social tools), no, but most often interactivity with such tools are what developers mean. And even if inXile means using the Wasteland 2 forums or some in-game method of connecting with friends, I DON'T WANT IT.
Again - I don't play cRPG's to interact with other players. I listed the common ways games do this - Facebook and Twitter integration, social games on social networks or forums ... I hold that multiplayer really doesn't mean what it used to, and now any game where you interact with other players in ways beyond maybe just leaderboards and forums should be considered multiplayer (Mafia Wars, Dragon Age Legends, Farmville, etc... you play largely by interacting with others... MMO's, deathmatches for shooters, Dark Souls, Mass Effect 3... if interacting with other players will change the single player experience, then it's multiplayer as far as I mean)
So, yes, I read the vague "social" mention and the update to the update - and I'm still meaning what I initially said. If there MUST be some ability to interact with other players, I IMPLORE INXILE to make it able to be completely shut off so I never have to see "Joe is now playing Wasteland 2" nor "Naomi sent you a sub-machine gun!" nor "Brian has sent you a friend request." I'm not on Facebook for a reason. If there's anything I despise about Steam and XBOX Live, it is this default crap.
Give me a toggle to turn that off completely, make me invisible to others who ACTUALLY ENJOY that stuff, and then I'll be tolerant of it existing in the game. I don't want it, I vote it's not included period, but I can tolerate it if I NEVER HAVE TO SEE IT.
cRPG's, for me, are solo gaming experiences. Period.
