Who are we to question a nobleman
So as we were playing hide and go leave SOE with Raph Koster today, we had a big stroke of luck. Fresh from winning the GDC "Lifetime Achievement" award, Richard Garriott was available briefly to talk to the press! We quizzed him on Tabula Rasa and MMO trends. And just, you know, generally basked in the aura of greatness.
Toward more present matters, Garriott was asked if he was happy with the new version of Tabula Rasa. "Oh, totally. We're confident we have a winner on our hands. What we're not confident in is how fast we can get it out. It's really the same game, it just looks totally different... more manly, for better or worse."
