Richard's Ramblings

Just because sometimes my mind overflows its brainpan. Figured this would make as good of an outlet to catch those overflows as any. No set theme, topic, or schedule, just whatever and whenever. :)

Good morning all! Sorry I didn't get to make a final update on yesterday's entry. After hitting up the SOE/FLS and Cryptic fan gatherings I ran into some old friends and long story short, there was drinking, there was dancing and there was a very early morning trip to Steak & Shake. So anyway, on to today's events.

1645: Wrapped up with interviews for the day and spending some time seeing the show before it closes. Yes, Bioware has a presence here, but they're only talking about Dragon Age, so unfortunately no chance of getting any info about their MMO. Couple more after parties to attend tonite. We'll be crashing Turbine's player gathering and Cryptic is hosting another event we'll be making a presence at. Also SOE/FLS's event was such a hit last night they've decided to have an impromtu followup tonight so we'll try to make an appearance there as well.

1600: Interview with Flying Lab Studio's CEO Rusty Williams. Great amount of info here about Pirates of the Burning Sea from someone who obviously loves what he does and the product he's working on. As with everything else we'll have a short article leading into the video interview being posted.

1500: Interview with Cryptic's Lead Designer of Champions Online Randy Mosiondz. There will be a short teaser article followed by the video interview.

1100: First interview of the day is with WAR's Community Relations Director Robert Mull. You can expect some great video from this one, definitely the longest interview of the show, primarily covering community aspects of the game.

0900: Awake, breakfasted and convention hall bound. Today we hope to squeeze in interviews with Cryptic, FLS and WAR. We'll see how that turns out though. Oh, and I'm on the hunt for more swag, my swag collection so far for this con is abnormally low. :(

GenCon- The festival to which we see who takes the less showers? DAYUM! Kids you can stink at home all you want in your gaming chair but please when you come outside and great the sun please be clean when you do so. The inside of the main display area didn't smell anything less of a crusty armpit. Other than that GenCon was the shiz.

Champions online people said they hoped to have the game released by spring next year, he hinted though that beta will be early 09. I played a little of it and CoH/V doesn't stand a chance so there is something you can look forward too
