LOL! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Here's a hint: They can't spell to save their own lives. They complain about every aspect of the game they see as unfair as if it were the end of the world. They form clans in order to more effectively pick on people who don't take games as seriously as they do. They consider any strategy that they can't easily defeat to be "lame" or "cheating." And finally: They're all 12 year olds who think that swearing makes them sound like adults.

Great article. Not a review, but a good preview to be sure. Hopefully it generates some hype, and makes more people who played Myst aware that there's new islands to explore!

Good to see the marketing machinery moving, but shouldn't they have included *Spoiler* in the headline? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

We will have to talk to their mods!

Cheers

Oooh, I don't know about their Mods, but this one goofed and should have put *SPOILER* in there.http://www.photobucket.com/albums/0903/Which2/smilies/action-smiley-034.gif

Sorry.

No worries Whitchy-Poo! It is a public article after all!

i am a [H]ard core gamer and tweaker. i was unable to interest anyone from the gaming community to play Uru.(imo) i think they have no curiosity. they say "i just don't get it". well, to be fair single player is a little slow, yet i can't wait to get online and see what this might become. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
