What R.Garriott did in his career is outstanding and can never be taken away from him.  But again, what has he done for RPGs / MMORPGs since UO?  UO is a 90's child.  Bill Clinton was still President of the USA!

And he did not have sex with that woman.

(You can't win with Garriot. He's Deity Incarnate, or he's a Has-Been. But either way, the argument usually churns on for days.)

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Well if Mark Jacobs can pull it off, which remains to be seen, then I'm sure Garriott can do it too.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Im pretty sure that this is just the release of Ultima Forever. http://ultimaforever.com/ EA said spring 2013. Or am I wrong?

I like how the game captures some of the original Ultima art style, but I can’t say if it is any good gameplay wise. I believe that Richard Garriott has lost all interest in video games, and this is just a marketing thing.

Richard Garriott isn't involved whatsoever with Ultima Forever, apart from the game being inspired by Ultima IV, which he did make. He doesn't have the rights to the "Ultima" name anymore, either. He does have the rights to "Lord British" though, which is why Ultima Forever has a Lady British instead.

Currently playing: Divinity: Original Sin, FTL, Hearthstone and Skyrim.
Eagerly anticipating: Camelot Unchained, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

It just says that he presents something not that it is something by Richard Garriott. Maybe they just hired him to boost the release.

I think it would be a big coincidence if Ulitima Forever gets released and the same month Richard Garriott makes his big comeback with his next big thing, after keeping himself out of game design for almost 20 years.

   UO Pre trammel, Pre stat loss for reds.

The test server for factions.... when you could macro a switch completely changing your character from mage to archer to tamer to solider was the bomb-whoa-shiznit.

 You know it's fun as hell when there are 30-40 corpses laying around half looted, because you never even had the time to loot before some enemy was comming by looking for revenge/blood.

 

Anyway, I still remember the day when Lord Bristish was Pk'd

I was not there, as I had to work, but I still remember My guild being all abuzz about the whole thing

and how everyone thought it was so cool that even Lord British could be Pk'd

This is not on Kickstarter yet? In that case, yes, I think there will be a Kickstarter. It seems that loads of MMO vets have come out of the woodwork once they saw the first MMO kickstarter getting of the ground.

This is a good thing, but the MMO market is saturated up to its eyeballs, can any MMO get traction? And the more of these alternative gameplay MMO's that are launched, the more likely it is that none of them become a big success.

RG is still my childhood hero, even if he hasn't been able to get his s$%# together since EA killed UO2.  He's recently been backing away from his silly comments about "social games" being the future, so I have a tiny shred of hope regarding this announcement.  Mind you, only a tiny shred.  His $28M wrongful termination judgement against NCSoft was recent upheld, so he really doesn't need to be kickstarted....

I'm sure it will be an announcment for http://www.portalarium.com/index.php/ultimate-rpg .  It is the project he has been working on.

This game has nothing to do with Richard Garriott. Ultima Forever is a game made by the empty husk known as EA Mythic.

Im not diging this force new trend from some people that mobile gaming is the next big thing.

 

We use mobile devices because, well people are on the go.  Then you get this idea that they are going to have time to dig into a game for more than 5-10min (which btw all the popular mobile games cater to)

 

This idea that we are going to get people playing mobil games for any longer than a brief stint is ridiculous.  I game over watching tv, if im going to game its going to be in comfort not on public transportation, in a cab, on lunch, ect.  I would rather sit in my comfy chair, with my nice desk, a cool beverage next to me, and game for a few hours.

Im not going to want to pull out my 5inch screen and get treated to an akward sit while playing for a few.

 

As far as facebook is concerned yeah its a big market segment of non gamers/quasi gamers who sit at the computer all day looking at what other people like...could be tapped into and get these semi-computer junkies into full fledged mmo fiends...but even then client base mmorpgs are just better than the goofy web browser games.

 

In short, i hate when "industry thinkers" try to push their half asses vision as to what the future will be. Like with my tv example, sure people watch tv on moblie devices when they can, but all would prefer to watch something they really enjoy in comfort on nice technology made for viewing...not some cellphone.

This is not about industry thinkers trying to push a vision of the future. It is about gaming companies seeing a new market. Just as years ago they saw console players as the new market for MMO's. They have seen the numbers on people who play games on mobiles and play games in a social network. They want some of that action.

So what will happen? Well I predict it will be like what happened when they started making MMO's with consoles in mind. Simpler control systems, simpler UI, less interactive elements on screen, graphics not as top notch as it could be.

If he can bring Raph Koster onboard, I'm backing for sure, even if the game is about pink fluffy bunnies.

There's been a lot less of that talk ever since Zynga began its death spiral.  Mobile has its place in gaming, but it's the wrong platform for any game that can't be played start-to-finish over the course of a bowel movement.   The industry is starting to figure this out; we'll see if Mr. Garriot has done the same in a few more days.

I actually enjoyed that game, and, at times, miss it, i never got to endgame though, so cant say if it was bad.
