Huh, that was pretty awsome...and definetly would've made me expect this to be something else than your average 3rd person shooter, so I'm kinda glad I didn't see this 'till I experienced the game myself.
Oh shit, I had completely forgotten about this trailer. That game still sends chills down my spine when I think about it. I can't believe it even got made. I know it didn't really hit some people, but for me it was like a punch in the face.
I taught myself with the help of a some program I can't remember when I was something like 16 years old. I started once and gave up, but I persevered the second time.
The beginning sucked, at least for me. It seemed nearly impossible, but you just have to go a little bit at a time. The program I used focused on a small number of keys at first and added more as you got better. There is definitely a tipping point where you can actually produce text at a reasonable speed and after that you are just going to get better and better pretty fast by just writing.
