Hahaha oh dear, some quotes from an interview with Barnett. I regret the Kotaku link in advance btw, they sound hopeful about the game but well, they suck:

"I could do the quest to kill the giant and go and kill the dragon and kill the necromancer to get the rights to go and have my boat made... or I could give them a buck and just have the boat. And I want a boat, because I want to go and sail around the oceans. I don't want to wait. I want a boat NOW."

"Can we bring BioWare stories to casual space, and can we avoid all the pitfalls that are in the casual space?"

"I mean, I'm aware that Battleship Potemkin defined modern cinema, but it's not a great view. You watch it and go, 'it's black and white and a bit crap, I'd rather watch something else.' And that's basically the problem we've been faced with, is how to reimagine and reboot a classic and make it so that there's a new generation that can have an Ultima."

Literally everything about this game sounds awful to me.

This is indicative of just how far BiowarEA has fallen from grace and the sort of shit that corps like EA think everyone wants instead of real games. Oh well, that just makes it easier for all the indie/KS crowd out there to sell their wares. In fact, they should probably glad that EA continues to shovel crap like this out the door.

"Every generation deserves an Ultima," Barnett declared grandly, "And we're giving this generation the best BioWare Ultima that we can."

Really? This is really the best they can offer? Holy shit. Just wow.

Who is the Barnett clown? He sounds like some 12 year old with ADD.
