I am very hyped.
I played DF for 6 months. At the time, I had a really crappy computer, and I could barely run the game. I eventually quit solely because of my pc's performance, but I fell in love with Darkfall because it brought back the feelings I had in UO. By the time I got a new computer, DF1 was pretty much dead and Darkfall 2.0 was looming around the corner, so I've just been waiting.
One of my favorite memories was finding a remote little island close enough to the main land that I could swim to it. It was covered in ore. I would alway hit that island for a nice quite place to mine without getting ganked.
One day I could hear someone swimming up to shore, so I pulled out my polearm. An Ork came running over the hill carrying a two handed axe, and attacked me. I was a fat little dwarf, and I accidently wedged myself into a crevis in the rock. I was stuck, and the only exit was through the Ork!
The Ork came at me, and I swung with my polearm. Each hit, I could actually see him get knocked a little. He got a couple hits in on me, but I got the kill. I dry looted him and banked.
I can still hear the *tink tink tink* of a miners pick vividly in my head.
