EA can sure promote a game when they put their evil minds to it!

    I'm starting a bumper sticker campaign that says ...

    "Honk if you hate leveling!"

    Leveling isn't TOO bad..
    how about "Honk if you hate grinding!" ?

    Then again... that depends on the type of 'grinding' ... ....

    How about ..."UO: Even your mom would approve! (I just asked her!)"

    Perhaps... but reading the reviews it comes across as fun early on then just plodding repetition or boring puzzles later.

    Sort of like how fun UO can be early on until you actually decide to work on a skill through GM or Legendary. UO is tough to market because the graphics don't lend themselves to building a campaign.

    It's really tough to get someone excited about a little pixel mage that you can't even look closely at. And environments that are essentially the same blocks hooked together. When we are walking through waving grasses to get to a battle between dozens of mages, warriors, bards and tamers, both on the ground and in the air, spells sparking, creatures flapping, screams and battle cries surrounding us as we ready our swords.... they might be able to put something together then.

    I read the entire Dante's Inferno Divine Comedy trilogy. Utter trash! jk but it's not my kind of thing... The game, on the other hand... well, maybe I might play God of War III instead, Ive heard its a GoW clone basically.

    Anyways, yeah, UO wouldn't look out of place at all being advertised, everybody would rush to their nearest game shop to join in on the 56k fun. /sarcasm

    WAY TO USE THE :gee: OP. lol

    they cant promote uo.. if they do then more people would play, that means they would have to put more money into the computers.. that means they wouldnt make as much as they do now with there old already paid for equipment.

    I just wanna see how they make a sequel to Dante's Inferno - it's not like the REAL literary sequels will work...

    More Ultima swag people.

    Cloth maps...please? Or another wave of statues, as much as I detest McFarlane's work these days.

    bumper stickers...

    "My RL house is in felucca"

    "By day aeronautic engineer, by night chop trees in Yew for brilliant amber"

    "Homemaker by night, Dread Lord by day"

    "Does fishing up sea boots in UO count for community service graduation requirements?"

    And it was ever so much better when UO had "M" for Mature! Uhhhhhh, yeah. Better.

    Maps! Yes! Gad I miss the maps I had years ago. Heck, even the early Ultima games on Atari 8-bitters had a flipping cloth map!

    I think I'll assess how 'central' UO is to the EA thinking if the marketing approach talked about here is seen to be happening with UO.....

    i love Cal's charming sarcasm :thumbup1:
     
  24. If you're 16 and pregnant you probably have never heard of Ultima. Now...

    "I'm 32 and living in my mom's basement" I would believe.

    What i REALLY hate about EA is their marketing for Mythic.

    - European branch is out of GTC's (90 days) for UO for months now. My trusted retailer has to sell US imported ones. (Which are unluckily slightly more expensive.)

    - A visit of www.electronic-arts.de proved me, that there is not even a single word about UO or DAOC.

    - Why arent there low budget versions around of UO? There are enough boni around, to make it worth buying. Maybe 9'th anniversary house tiles and 6'th char slot? The prices for War got dropped into low budget regions. (Europa/Germany at least)

    - Where are my informations about reopening of the european DAOC servers by Mythic? I got a confirmation email from GOA about them closing and an invitation to the last days for free. Now I ve read by accident that those servers are up under Mythics control and that there will be a free month. Where is my email/invitation about that?

    - Are there any changes to get combi abos like Sony is doing with their mmo's? Simplest idea would be something like pay 2 and get three. Natural combination would be UO + DAOC + War for one price. (Thought I would prefer to get 4 for the price of 3 for 2 times DAOC and 2 times UO.)

    UO is not a game for kids, it's for grown up, just look at the age of it's players.

    Lets drop the Teen Rating and go back to Mature Rating.

    How about... "UO: Even your mom, dad and grand parents will love this game, maybe they will allow you to play it with them. (Ask your grand mom or grand dad if they know about it)"
