    Once upon a time there was this great land called Britannia. Then Elizabeth and Abraham appeared and it all went to hell.

    Also WTF with the 2D graphics? When did MUD text games fall out of fashion?

    Yeah, which is why I wouldn't be surprised if he'd spent all his money by now and wants to follow his friend Chris Roberts into the old game again.


    Poland treats me like shit and I hate them as a result of it

    He was batshit insane always. He was just lucky that it led to some innovation that noone thought about before. Does that qualify him for success now? As time has proven, no, initial success followed by daikatana-esque failures.

    Because, as Yahtzee made the point, the kind of person who cares about a standard MMORPG with grind, quests and all that, and the kind of person who cares about territory control, tend to be two VERY different people, and there's not much crossover.

    Yeah proably right I don't remeber the grind but it wasn't really up long enough to get to far into.

    I played it, good fun whilst levelling (shooting aliens with lazors) but no endgame so it died as subs dropped. NBS.

    My thought was:


    Lord British presents another desperate attempt to stay relevant.
    I tried to be cool and all I got was a lousy warning about my sig being too big.

    My top tips to Lord British on how to regain his previous success:

    1. Stop calling yourself Lord British and return to reality from your insane fantasy world
