    Recently, I was able to go hands-on with Wasteland 3's pre-alpha PC demo. Even in this brief slice, it seems like InXile is on to a winner fans of classic CRPGs will adore.
    In 2018, Microsoft unveiled that it had purchased InXile Entertainment, led by the legendary Interplay co-founder Brian Fargo. InXile was founded in 2002 and has since been a trailblazer on crowdfunding platforms, building games like Torment: Tides of Numenera, The Bard's Tale IV, and Wasteland 2.
    Wasteland itself predates the Fallout franchise and shares a common ancestry. While initially similar, Fallout eventually ended up in Bethesda's portfolio, turning into a first-person shooter with RPG elements. Wasteland 2, however, felt like a true successor to both the original Fallout and Wasteland games, retaining open-ended story choices (and consequences), and tactical combat that Fallout has gradually stripped away over the years.
    Thankfully, Wasteland 3 plays to the strengths of those classic genres and has the potential to ascend above the crowd-funded roughness of Wasteland 2, injecting some triple-A star quality into the mix that has frankly been rare for games of this type.
    This is Wasteland 3, the most addictive demo I've played in years.
