Quote of the Day

It’s the idea that the developers behind any given game are an idiots. According to commenters, they’re all blind, non-gamer morons, bumbling around in the dark without the slightest sense of what game mechanics are actually fun.

Why are these bumbling morons in the industry? Why don’t they listen to the endless array of golden ideas that pop up on game forums? Don’t they realize that these revolutionary ideas will turn every game into double-rainbow-crapping unicorns?

The trail so far

Sadly, we don’t know a lot, and this path we’re wandering down is taking us places we don’t know about. Our only option is to enjoy the ride and see where it drops us.

We know that Andy and Carrie have been doing a stupid amount of interviews while in the land of Germany. They’ve obviously talked to onRpg.com, GoHa.Ru (Russian site), WAR-Welten (German), Gamereactor, @70MS (Meghan Rodberg from Turbine), and  Massively. What we know from those various sources is scant indeed.

As we found out yesterday, onRPG told us that the renown cap is increased to 100, Skaven will be introduced in some fashion (possible player controlled), and thanks to a friendly reader at Werit’s blog, we know that the blurb at GoHa.ru does indeed confirm a new zone of some sort.

Information is scant, but Andy Belford assured us via a forum post and a tweet, that we can expect a lot more detailed information this weekend. Also if you read any of the so-far interviewed articles/sites, they all are pretty much in lock-step at having more information forth-coming. My guess is from the need to actually, you know, write and edit things. They can’t all be free-wheeling, non-sensical bloggers like me!
