Todd McFarlane and Ultima?!
While details are no where to be found as of yet, all signs point toward Todd McFarlane giving his input on the character designs for the next Ultima Online game. This is definitely a bold and interesting move on Origin's part. Even more intriguing is that this teamup with McFarlane will spawn(pun intended) a line of action figures based on designs from the game. I bet no one thought Ultima toys would ever even exist. These figures should begin appearing this autumn.
In a completely unrelated story, Larian Studios announced a new "epic and story intensive role playing game". Personally I think plain ol' RPG fits better but I digress. Anyway this new game is untitled at the moment and only bears the mysterious code name of Project C. There are no other real tidbits on the game other than it being an RPG and having a fantasy setting.
To wrap things up, you are probably wondering who is that freaky looking girl in that pic on the right side of your screen, right? Well she is Kei Sagami...who would also be me as of now. :P I changed my online persona from ^Kamui to Kei, so I'm hardly a new editor at all. And to make things loud and clear right now, I am not a girl off the net. So please, no foolish emails on that topic. :P
If you however want to point out an error in a story to me or want to ask any other non "Hey are you a girl?" related questions, don't hesitate to email me at Kei_Sagami@rpgfan.com
