Hmm, I am using Firefox. Maybe I'll try it at home, try a few different sizes, etc.

I set it years ago in Opera - but Opera now won't let me change it, so I'm off to FF for a sec to follow alucard's advice too.:D

Lets see, you stick your hand in a dark bucket, and you get your hand bitten. A devs comes along and says "the new bucket is better, stick your hand in"........would you?

That's what people been doing with Funcom as well...
It's an independent company that launched their first title.
I guess they can't make it worse.

Guess again. It's the same dev team that made the first version right?

How many times will players fall for the relaunch of failed games? At least they don't have the option to pre-order them yet. Pretty soon we may be required to pay for the priveledge to anticipate them.

I'd kill for a proper sandbox game. And by "proper" I mean something that is complete in the term of actually creating a world where it isn't about rampant murdering one another or gang ganks.

After years of posting extremely large essays on potential game systems to help emulate player making more meaningful moral choices (including in the Darkfall beta forms), I just want to point out again that you can make a sandbox that isn't just about who has the biggest stick or the meanest group of friends.

Completely agree. Why does sandbox automatically mean world PvP?

Sorry rant incoming.

Every few weeks we get an announcement about another new Sandbox PvP game from an indie developer. I understand many people love themselves a bit of PvP, but a vast majority prefer there PvP in small doses or not at all. I'm not saying PvP has no place in sandbox games, but focusing solely on world PvP as your main content is, in my opinion, a mistake.

So am I to read this as them remaking Darkfall? Like starting from scratch as opposed to patching it up and revamping the mechanics, graphics, etc? I don't understand what it means to be a relaunch, and also a new game.

"This relaunch is not an expansion"
Yeah, okay, maybe you can start by saying what it is, instead of what it is not.

" It's a new game we've been developing.."
So.. it's new. Wow, I didn't see that coming. Really.

"The scope is massive, and it has been difficult to stay on schedule.."
Without knowing what they're up to, I can't appreciate what they mean by massive scope.

Tasos should just go run for political office. It seems he's really good at saying nothing at all.

Not to be mean, but why would I have confidence as a consumer to try a different game designed by those that are admitting their previous game design was flawed?

Really? Does it take a lot of brain power to realize that having an open free-for-all gank world sand box game would not be popular enough to support itself?

My confidence is low...

Isn't this the second or third relaunch of Darkfall? How many does it take for a game that launch in July '09?

To me it is quite clear that he is talking about a REAL re-launch. They will change several foundations of the game and playing it after the re-launch will give you the feeling that you are playing a new game.
I think it is quite clear that it is not really a new game!

I really doubt that Darkfall would go f2p considering, it's darkfall, it wouldn't really work and IMO smaller games like this ( smaller then 50k subs ) is most likely better of keeping a subscription.

They probably didn't want to launch the game when they did but the current subscribers made the re-launch possible.
