"I pretty much hated Shadowbane, though: not as much as AO, of course."
I'm probably ripping someone off by saying 'a challenge this big is not meant for everyone'
AO was deep hurting. I've got some great screenshots from being trapped behind invisible walls (wooo SUDs!), and another of my character equipping a bow that still had the default model / texture (pink cube, blue writing "default mesh" - was almost the size of my martial artist).
"Sloppy coding after 4 years of development = cancelling my account."
Huh, really? Gosh, you must cancel a lot of accounts. I can't think of a mainstream game yet that didn't have these sorts of problems. Guess you were never a Half-life / Quake 3 player either
"Not jumping onto Galaxies, either, though."
...yeah, i skipped it for now, and i was a raving looney in beta. luckily, i've got this big project at work and i've managed to stay strong in the face of wookie entertainers. next month, maybe... we'll see.
