Good to see an MMO company not willing to rush their game out the door - for once.

"As they've pointed out before, "A late game is only late once. A bad game is a bad game forever.""

Whoever said that, Cryptic should hire them. The first impression is so important. As we've seen again and again, it doesn't matter how much the game is patched up later, how great it becomes in time, how it is at launch is what affects the staying numbers. Most people aren't willing to give it another chance later, they feel they tried once and were burned and that was it.

As a side note, PWE has been making some good choices lately, and various things they say show that they know the market they're making things for. They took back their Kung-Foo game for a retooling before a new CB when the reception was lukewarm about it just being a re-texted Q-World/Wulin2 to actually make more changes to the game. They're delaying things in order to put out a more quality product rather than rush things out the door to try to start making money. These are smart decisions that not a lot of people are willing to do. But it's why so many other products fail. They actually work to change the games for the North American audience rather than just port over an English version. Tho Perfect World itself was more of just an English version, since then they've learned to tweak their games to be different for the US audience. Just read this article and see the things they say, they know we have different playing styles and are working to change the games more to fit us. I am absolutely not a "fan grrl" either, I was one who gave them the hardest time about the first release of Kung-Foo, but they took it back to change it more. They're turning out to be pretty smart about the market, and gaining respect because of that.
