    Thirith? What about the children? What about ME!?

    This is pretty much the continued rape of Origin's long-dead corpse. I don't care if Bioware's doing it. Fuck off, EA.

    You're just an also-ran. Sorry, that's how it works.

    Oh look, another classic game series gets a pointless shitty sequel/reboot for a quick cash grab due to brand recognition.

    Nice to see videogame industry catched up so quickly to the movie one. They grow up so fast

    Hmm, yeah.

    Next up: Real-time strategy Monkey Island 6.

    RTS is deader than point & click adventure, actually.

    I keep reloading that page but it's still not showing the third RPG archetype. I'm going to email the webmaster.

    Didn't Starcraft 2 shift over 5 million units? I think that's slightly more alive than point & click.

    But you get my drift - I don't want to see Ultima/Monkey Island/Loom/Insert Classic Title Here Reanimation Cash Cows either.

    My blood pressure's too low for a heart attack. Instead this just makes me deeply sad. And I'm only half joking, like that depressing episode in Finland in Jarmush's Night on Earth.

    EA may be doing it just to spite the fans. It's brilliant.

    What does cross-platform mean in this case? Browser-based? Tablets and phones? XBLA and PSN?

    Oh yes. Playing Prince of Persia on Hercules. Hell, playing NSNIPES on Hercules! If you left the screen on too long, the text would burn into it permanently.

    "Accept the challenge from Lady British and save the land of Britannia."

    LADY British?! WTF?! Political Correctness in action?

    Why are there multiple classes and why is it Multiplayer? There is only one Ultima protagonist and he's some blonde male douche from Texas.

    Anyway:-

    Garriott has the rights to the name Lord British and he likely has little love for EA so I guess that's their solution.

    Ultima did have multiple classes though, especially ultima 4, even though it only affected starting stats .

    Also:



    The sad part is: not only will they screw up building something on ultima, they'll also screw up doing something on what made ultima online one of the most unique mmos still.

    UO still exists to this day. I don't see the point of reinventing the wheel. All they need to do is transfer it to a "freemium" model and boom, you'll have fresh blood.

    Actually, it also affected allowed equipment (you can't give plate mail to a shepard) and whether you could cast magic.

    I'm definately in "wait and see" mode.

    Although in other news, I'm currently replaying Ultima 7 and loving it
