    This... I don't know. I wish he would drop the multiplayer bullshit and make a full-on Ultima spiritual sequel. It looks like he has it in him, but he's so fucking bent on chopping lumber and playing lutes in pubs and picking eggs out of bird's nests. Just make a huge, awesome world to explore. He's still trying to straddle both sides of the fence and it's pretty sad.

    It just looks like an MMO for babbies with some Ultima throwbacks at this point.

    Sorry, I looked in the CRPG forum and didn't see a thread. According to Garriott, SotA doesn't fall into the category of MMORPG, and he is credited with coining the term.

    I agree, but tell that to Jaesun and DarkUnderlord.

    So the first alpha is coming tomorrow. I ended up backing the project because my Ultima nostalgia made it impossible not to. Here's hoping it's interesting, at least. By the way, is this the closest we have to the main SotA thread? Hmmm, probably not since this is in News. What is the thread this sort of thing should be posted in? My search failed me. =/

    I'm fully expecting shit, but hoping for Ultima with some silly side distractions. Let us know how it goes.
