Jeez, convincing a state to fund an MMO? Mind control or ignorance? You decide, Tonight on CBS

Looks like WoW 1.5. This feels like what you get when you have a wealthy uber WoW fan like Schilling, trying to come up with his dream project, which is to get paid to play more WoW......I hope it works out. I wonder if the game world is larger than the state of RI....hmmmm...an E3 mystery perhaps?

I bet this game will never see a public release. Reckoning was supposed to help pay for this, but I don't think they met their mark.

The graphics engine is dated, but the environments look really really nice and unique. Less copy and pasted than WOWC was. However, I'm not going to play an MMO for a company that's in financial ruin. I'd have to worry every day about trying to log on to find my server no longer exists.

An MMO? They are doomed as a studio. The MMO train has left the station. No one cares anymore.

That wasn't a very exciting video to watch. The only compliment I can give it is that the art style was lovely.

You would think so and I would wish so, but the amount of income MMOs gain in total is continuing to rise. There seems to be a population that plays each new release of an MMO then migrates to the next thing that brings up its ugly head. Further more MMOs are primarily played by social gamers and that means casuals which = more wallets to investors. So ya the string of bad MMOs will unfortunately not be going away.

Looked kinda cool. Too bad it was an MMO. It'd be cool if someone took those assets and made an RPG with em.
