  1. Hi all. I worked at UTV for a bit on Faxion, and while some old Wolfpackers and Stray Bullet Games employees were there, Todd was still at King's Isle at the time, I believe. Update after reading more on this topic. While I've never worked at ACE, I have worked with Todd, Gordon, and some others at Wolfpack, BioWare, etc. ACE never had any affiliation with UTV Ignition (nor did UTV with King's Isle or BioWare, etc). I'm fairly certain no one from UTV is at ACE although many of us have worked together in previous companies. I think the only person who worked at UTV that was at ACE is Jona
  2. It's been a while since I looked but I'm fairly sure they are in MP3 format on the discs if you have them.
  3. Well, I have to admit, it's a great name for a guild
  4. I just wanted to say thanks for making sure these are still on the audio podcasts, too! It definitely helps with my commute down the 360 hwy in Austin, the hurry and wait in line city
  5. hehe, I fear I have more time to listen to a podcast in traffic than I do to watch one at home. Well, that's not necessarily true... just at that point, I tend to play games instead of watching them
  6. Are you still doing these as audio podcasts. Last one I see (for Android, at least) is Ep 6 on 4/12. Have to admit, they are great to listen to on the commute (oh Austin traffic.... hurry up and wait to get anywhere, especially on 360).
  7. Yep but I imagine they are staggering them out due to how many people backed the project. Just keep your eyes peeled for an email entitled "Claim your backer rewards!" from no-reply@crowfall.com.
  8. Mine ultimately worked when I received it but it took a few refreshes before it would. The first two times I'd put in my code and it would do nothing... but third time was the charm! Already sent my repro steps and OS/Browser stats to Support in case it helps.
  9. I actually had a toon in DHL; Spjorn Skullcleaver. And unfortunately that was a problem quickly on for that server. DHL dominated it early and, after a bit, pretty much owned that world. I also played on Mourning (with a few toons) and it had a better sampling of guilds and never really got into the same state. One of the reasons it'll be interested to see how the campaigns work out in CF... it is akin to a server reset or server up for SB.
  10. It was always part of the plan... but I think it took on a life of its own. When I first started, I think my title was "Internet Relations Manager" because there was no industry standard of "Community Manager" and only a few people doing those kinds of things at the time. I also remember early on we did a Fan Gathering before the game launched at the Copper Tank (I want to say that was the name of the place). Most of the devs were a little hesitant to go because of how, ahem, passionate the community already was. Luckily, the event went REALLY well (outside of some technical glitches) and I th
  11. Yeah, when I started working on Shadowbane, the only things I had played (MMO-wise) was Ultima Online and Everquest (I did play DAOC while working on SB, though and a few other MMOs). Around that time there was Asheron's Call and Anarchy Online and I believe Eve launched shortly after SB. But everyone was looking at making their own MMO. Sure, some of the RPG elements were similar but there was a lot of differences between them, too. One of the greatest things for the industry was also one of the worst (imo) - WoW. Great in that they made a fantastic, highly polished product that really br
  12. I imagine what made Shadowbane so memorable is different for various sets of people. For me it was the social aspect of things... the political intrigue, the alliances, the backstabbing, the friends, the in-game lore (such as the Feature Character System). While you say you don't feel it was captured, what do you think was missing? What made Shadowbane so great for you?
  13. The other day, someone was wearing a "Smells Like Teen Spirit" t-shirt and she was in her early 20s. I said "You a big fan of the band?" in which she replied, "What band?"
  14. I was beginning to wonder when you'd show up!
