Gotta restart somewhere. There is no shame in making something like this to get some cash flowing for bigger/better projects ~ like for instance the Ultima remake Garriott has spoken about.

Oh true, everyone has to. But he's got two games already that don't break any new ground (ones a poker game) and he releases this? And mind you, he yaps on his blog how "Blizzard doesn't get it"?

I may be applying my sense of decency too much to him (but I would think, hearing about the man, he would have some).

He should either shut it *until* he has something to show or not "brag" about something he doesn't have yet.

I laughed at Joystiq, now I shall laugh here.

Bwa-Ha-Ha-Ha!

Please, Garriott, all your blogging and posturing and you release this? A sorta chat-room client that is more similar to a social lobby game like IMVU than anything else (along with player housing features, sponsored by Real-World retailers it seems)? Will this game even be connected to any other game you will make?

Okay, half-a-point for it being better than your Portalarium Portal game but please, to release that after your "mad blogs"....well, you shot yourself in the foot.

Try harder next time. VERY, VERY MUCH HARDER!

Ya know after all the crap richey has been saying for most of the year I expected a game with depth and quality. This...what ever the hell this is has been a big dissapointment. At least now I can hope this site puts to rest talkin about this guy every week.

I was actually thinking he was going to pull another MMO and not something like this after reading his now famous facebook post. But when I saw this I nearly facepalmed. How does he go from Ultima Online and Tabula Rasa to this?

@Raikulxox After checking the official site, it seems the Ultimate RPG is still unnanounced. I can only hold on to a sliver of hope now =/

Wait wait wait wait...so he spews all this bs about how this and that are dead...and then releases a game called Ultimate Garage Collector?

I bet I can predict his next titles:
Ultimate Purse Snatcher
Ultimate Cat Sitter
Ultimate Dumpster Diver
Ultimate Seller of Lame Things
....and so on!

My grandmother will love this!

Garriott is a genius -- of the ninety-year-old set.

I kind of think it could have that Sims feel to it. The Sims is one of the best selling video game series ever because people love to build and furnish houses ... and torture helpless virtual humans, but lets say mostly the first. Maybe he is going for that, in a kind of a multiplayer environment.

But i think that's like a tenth of a proper game. I have to ask myself why would i build and customize a house and avatar and go and collect stuff at garage sales, and why would i even spend money on that. I can't find a reason.
