I was wrong, I can't wait to play this

I initially though this was going to be just a console game. I now think that for my small group this game could be epic. It looks like you can have your own server and form a small band of intimates with whom you strive against a brutal world without the evil of strangers asshatting you. BUT, if you want asshat excitement they have that too. I liked Age of Conan and especially it's art design and music. I think these guys can deliver a great Conan experience. 

It looks like dancers can be used to cure madness inflicted by seeing supernatural stuff, so they even worked in the Cthulhu feel and have entertainers like another favorite game of mine.  

In addition the sandstorm that can kill you was another nice touch. I can't wait to see that hulking Cimmerian with his thews of steel and animal sense of justice. Hopefully there are maidens in need of protecting.

    My interest definitely continues to go up, assuming I can find an asshat free environment to play on.

    I may be mistaken but aren't you a big supporter asshatville I mean Eve? 

    I too will be playing exiles on an asshat free server.

    I feel like they made a good choice in letting players sequester themselves if they want to do that. I imagine after I learn the game I will venture in to the environment with players I don't know in RL, but I don't want to learn the game while being hunted. I figure that I should give something like this a chance because true MMORPGs have not been cutting it for me lately, but I don't want a SPRPG. If the server that me and my friends inhabit is persistent it will be great.

    I'm definitely going to play this. Looking for more playmates and there's going to be a launch party and we'll do EA giveaways and free lap-dances by hairy men cause that's the Conan way!

    Yeah, but they are easily avoidable in EVE, not always true in some games.

    As long as there is one pimple faced Goon around, there will always be an asshat.
