Saw this article this morning: New challengers lining up take down Warcraft | Games Blog - Yahoo! Games I couldn't help but notice there is no mention of EA at all.. Except for a brief mention of Star Wars The Old Republic. They briefly glossed over the fact that most reviews I've seen, both independent and on their own forum are calling the game a dismal failure. One can only hope the investment they lost on that game will not effect UO. Also.. what do ya'll think of the upcoming releases they mention in the article? None of which even remotely resemble the open sandbox style of Ultima Online. I can only wonder.. with the 15 year run of UO, (making it "successful" in my opinion) Why nobody else uses the Ultima playstyle as a template for new games?
