The Human Side of WAR — this is an easy to ready two-page interview, and I recommend it. Lots of great quotes, and exciting descriptions of the ‘living world’ they’re working on with Warhammer Online, but this is the one that got me:
WoW is The Beatles, who changed music forever. You can’t be the Beatles; they already exist. You can’t copy them. If you try, you become The Monkees. You’ve got no chance. We’re not The Beatles. We’re Led Zeppelin.
Having played a lot of Warhammer back in college, both on battlemats and as an RPG, that stuff got me excited. That’s always been Warhammer — heavy metal.
Heavy, sharp, slightly rusted metal.
Check out the trailer at their website (http://www.warhammeronline.com/english/home/index.php). See if the orc and the catapult make you laugh. If so, this might be your kinda game.
((If WoW = the Beatles, what’s CoH? Shinier, with a smaller, much more niche-oriented fanbase, and more system resource requirements… I’m going to say something like the Cure. 🙂
