    Lmfao. I remember the days when you could decapitate/dismember people, and cook their body parts into jerky and eat it. EA ended up removing that because Germany threw a fit over it, and threatened to ban UO. At the time though, Germany had recently discovered their own version of Jeffrey Dahmer (which actually inspired Rammstein's "Mein Teil" song), and so cannibalism had become a sensitive subject there. Which is kind of ironic now, since WoW is allowed in Germany, and there's a race that specifically has Cannibalism as a racial ability.

    WoW's is sort of different though because they are undead, and zombies eat people, sooooo...

    UO actually let you cut up and dismember corpses and decorate your homes with the body parts of the dead. Which was...really cool. sucks it got removed.
    You'd think they could put it back now since games aren't physically sold anywhere anyway. Germany can ban UO all they like it doesn't stop german gamers from downloading it off steam or various other sources now. =]

    Couldn't you just get killed by the Harrower? He still blows up your corpse. Though I admit I didn't stick around long enough after getting res'd to find out if it was even possible to pick up the pieces. Clashing with him 1v1 isn't exactly something most players would even attempt...but I'm absolutely insane, so I gave it a shot.

    Only watched the pre-interview so far.

    Hm. So RG thinks WoW is great, he never wanted "shards," but had to because each shard only supported up to 10,000 players (and subscribers were in the millions), and hoped to one day have the shards come back together. So he would be a fan of merging shards. He also says he feels the UO: Renn split hurt the game, so whenever we have an argument over Fel/Tram, we can now say for sure that RG is on the side who says UO: Renn made the game less appealing ;P.

    I like the item crafting system in SotA, and how they are working with minimal stats. I haven't played much except some Alpha. I'll have to see where it is now.

    Maybe its time to change UO from a Teen rating to an M rated game...I dont see any teens picking this game up like when I first started. Have an M rated MMORPG and bring back the mayhem and dismemberment! Rawwwr!
