Countdown to PotBS

According to the website, release of PotBS is scheduled for June 2007. That leaves one moth to go :D
Time to start saving my money to make the switch. I foresee new video card in the works.

SiN reborn! We'll be like the phoenix!

We need a plan.

And Grue...check ur mail on WoW.

June - awesome - it'll coincide with me having surgery on my leg and needing to stay at home for a few weeks recovering :D
Lol, nice Teppic! Apos, I'm torn between Pirate and British. Looking at the map of ports on their site, either has good location around cuba (the middle of the map). I'll log onto WoW tonight for a bit, got a lot of work to do tho. We're having guests from California (friends of Gigners) for a couple days come in to town tomorrow.
Award-Winning MMORPG Pirates of the Burning Sea Introduces Swashbuckling!

Seafaring MMORPG to launch June 2007

(PENNY ARCADE EXPO) August 25, 2006 – At today’s opening of the Penny Arcade Expo, Flying Lab Software unveiled the addition of avatar combat to their award-winning MMORPG Pirates of the Burning Sea, a massively multiplayer online computer game set in the Caribbean during the 1720s.

Fighting across land and sea, players of Pirates of the Burning Sea will experience intense tactical ship combat and swashbuckling adventures, where every player is the captain of their own ship. British, Spanish, French, and Pirate captains battle it out for glory and power, engaging in both PvE and PvP game play that has the power to truly change the game world. Compete to conquer enemy ports, pursue 1000+ missions, engage in a fully player-driven economy, and earn ships, skills, and gear to become the most famous -- or infamous! -- captain on the Burning Sea.

The addition of avatar combat to Pirates of the Burning Sea’s game play amplifies the need for strategy and skill, offering melee encounters where movement, position and tactics truly matter. This new feature expands sea encounters as well, allowing players to board enemy ships, and with the aid of their crew, battle their opposition for supremacy and seize their opponent’s ship and cargo.

More than a simple hack-and-slash combat system, players move and dodge around the battlefield, wielding a vast array of weapons: from rapiers and pikes to muskets and even bar-stools! Adopt an aggressive stance and unleash a powerful combination of attacks that send the enemy reeling back on his heels, or bide your time on defense and wait for the opportune moment to launch your fatal strike. With a focus on fast action, environmental interaction, swift dispatches of minor enemies, and lengthy duels against worthy adversaries, Pirates of the Burning Sea offers swashbuckling combat the likes of which have never been seen in an MMORPG!

On land, players will explore dense jungles, Aztec ruins, and pirate treasure caves in search of adventure, fame and fortune. Players can raid fortresses manned by dozens of soldiers and battle it out for the opportunity to hoist their flag above the citadel, or duel sneering spies in swashbuckling swordfights within elegant colonial mansions.

“We already brought intense real-time tactical ship combat to MMOs,” said Producer John Scott Tynes. “Now we’re bringing the same imagination to sword fighting, brawling, and musketry through the introduction of swashbuckling combat mechanics.”

By the time the game releases in June 2007, it will have been in development for almost five years and in beta testing for a year and a half, resulting in a title with polished, innovative game play, and rich content. Flying Lab Software is currently accepting beta applicants at www.burningsea.com.

I think it's going French to be really important French to pick the right side French because it really does French make a huge impact on French the gameplay.

If we pick the wrong side British we might end up not Spanish enjoying the game Pirate all that much.

Just my $.02.

Mike, I'm German, I inherently hate the sniveling whelps we call the French. And in fact, I think I might just hate you a little more for suggestion we play them. ::

Actually, we should put it to a vote. I'll create a poll.
