Though the comments are making me laugh my head off, one cannot deny what ever awesome stuff he has done in the past and his at least apparent drive to continue or attempt to make more of what he loves.
I love all types of games but mainly play RPGs like Ultima..etc..I grow tired of the wussynessss of games now so even though we don't really know what the heck he means by the word "hardcore" it caught my eye.
I must admit I like it that he has this type of attitude in this day and age. At least he has (or had mattering your view) skills to possibly back it up in the future. What's the worst that can happen hahahaha
