#TSW – I am hype!

RAR! There’s also a new website! You haven’t seen this. I didn’t link it.

There’s a trailer. You can see it here, or you can clicky below. Yes, you’re allowed to see it today without risk of tentacly death. Well – not much risk.

The gameplay, if such it is, looks reasonable (and I really don’t pay much attention to that shiz till I get to try it myself). The character models look great — not elongated or plastic-wrapped like in EQ2, not cartoony, not uncanny-valley that I can tell. I’m actually looking forward to hauling ass into battle in a pair of jeans and sneakers — or a Chanel suit, if that’s what I want to do. But NO FREAKING SHOULDER PADS!!

The voiceovers are zomgwtfbbq hype, but that’s totally okay. I kind of like it when designers seem sincerely enthused by their own product, especially if it’s a product I plan on acquiring. You don’t really want Marvin the designer-android standing there telling you how great his game is when he  patently doesn’t believe a word of it. (Course, the trailer producers should just pick better actors, but I’m going to stop being so cynical now).

I just have one more word for y’all — well okay, two: ZOMBIE T-REX!!!! Pure, unadulterated win.

I am now officially frothing at the mouth again. Hey, #Ragnar — I can haz beta nao?
