Earth Day? Pfft... Trion Day!

Sort of a short little blog today in light of the fact that I’ve got to get packing.  Tomorrow I’m off on my first trip for MMORPG.com to meet with the fine folks of Trion World Network.  That may not be a very recognizable name yet, but something tells me it will be in the months to come.  With investors the likes of NBC/Universal and TimeWarner fueling the development of several AAA games, it’s likely only a matter of time before we put Trion right alongside the likes of 2K and EA.
 
One of TWN’s premier titles is the forthcoming MMORPG Heroes of Telara which was unveiled during last year’s E3, but has since been rather dark in the terms of media exposure.  I suspect that tomorrow’s press event is something of a coming-out party for the title.  The company also has Petroglyph Games currently working on an MMORTS.  You may recognize them as the developer behind the forthcoming Mytheon, as well as the cult hit Universe at War.  Lastly, Trion is partnering up with the SyFy network to produce an as of yet untitled MMO Action-RPG. 
 
Looking at that list, little is known about all three of these titles, and since I’m taking off for San Francisco early tomorrow morning I’m probably not too far off in assuming that I’ll likely be getting some demos and presentations on the company’s forthcoming products.   I should have some face time with the games’ developers as well.  With that in mind, I’m wondering what you all might want to know about these games.  
 
Got a question for the developers behind the ambitious Heroes of Telara?  Let me know and I’ll toss it at them.  Want to know more about the RTS or the SyFy game?  Post it here in the comments and I’ll try to torture them into answering it.  
 
In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and pray there’s slight jetlag for me.  Though I’m sure I won’t mind getting out of the still chilly Ohio to see some sunny Californian skies for a day or two even if I sleep away my Saturday. 
 
Cheers!

I was really looking forward to Heroes of Telara because I heard they were attempting some really groundbreaking, dynamic-world technology far beyond the "phasing" semi-instance crap that some games use.

Unfortunately, since then I've learned that they lost thier vision holder and a number of key designers, and are down to making another WoW-clone.   Exceptionally sad and disappointing.

The money in this industry seems unwilling to take many risks; imitation trumps innovation, and the players lose, again.
