Hands on description of Ultima X: Odyssey

http://www.reallifecomics.com/stuff_uxo.php

I had not really read much about this game yet but it sounds like they have some very cool ideas in there. Now Greg Dean, the guy who wrote this, is a complete Ultima Onliine and Ultima whore but the features sound interesting. Quests coming to you, the virtue/desciple thing, multiple ways to complete quests, and real time combat with no freaking rats or bats to kill all are good things IMO. I will definitely be keeping my eye on this one from here on out.

It’s gorgeous, no doubt about that. And I do admit that it sounds pretty cool. (I never got tired of UO, though. Probably still be playing it today, if I could.)

I love this shot, though. Look at the little nick in the sword! I dig that.

Yeah, okay – I’ll consider it. At this point, I don’t have the time or money to devote to an MMORPG, or else I’d be on Galaxies all the time. This one sounds really cool, too, though. Maybe by then, I can afford two…
