We get to put our hands on Richard Garriot's shiny new toy.
Although E3 may have been drab and flaccid compared to years past, a shining star rose above the ranks of the other MMOGs and shone brightly. The originality and innovative gameplay of Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa made John "Boomjack" Hoskin wish he had more time with the game, but he was eventually pried away from the keyboard and has written up a terrific preview of the upcoming MMORPG. Take a look!
Make no mistake about it, Tabula Rasa is a role-playing game. It may include ranged combat somewhat like a shooter, but this is a role-playing game through and through. The game has what I call "snap targeting", much like you might find in a console shooter. As your targeting reticle slides over an enemy it locks on so the player doesn't have to keep the enemy in his sights.
