Going Blank Again

Just in time for Space Week Jason Ford, Mission Designer for Tabula Rasa talks about a Mission in Tabula Rasa. Who’d have thunk it?

Thanks Gametrailers! You’ll be first pick for our high-level raid party.

It’s actually an updated mission in a forthcoming update. It includes AI becoming self-aware and – as everyone knows – that’s rarely a good thing for more carbon-based Self-aware things. If RPS became self aware, you’d be in trouble, mark our words. The video is called Patches to Ashes, after the unlikely name of the AI in question, which brings to mind Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes (Which is very Space week) and Clarence Carter’s Patches (Which isn’t very Space week).

    such a charismatic voice over.

  2. Will Tomas says:

    That, I believe, is a perfect example of “reading voice.”

  3. Janto says:

    Sounds like the Turing Police should investigate the NCSoft offices for the ‘Ford’ replicant…

  4. Wozza says:

    That’s the most players online ever, and they are all doing the same mission, amazing.

  5. Noc says:

    Also Kelly Vivanco’s Patches, which isn’t Space Week at all.

  6. roBurky says:

    I thought that was Microsoft Sam at first…

  7. Man Raised By Puffins says:

    But Tabula Rasa is not in space!

  8. Kieron Gillen says:

    You have to go through space to get there!

    god I loath that game. every second I played it in beta was a perfect example of my lack of willpower and my need to be eradicated by a self aware computer.

  10. Zell says:

    Did you follow the ‘related’ link to the WoW illustrated version of Patches? There’s just no escaping that game!

  11. Sal says:

    still no speeder bikes, lightsabers, or Bounty Hunters.

  12. Mooey Poo says:

    Excellent Ride reference so early in the morning.

  13. Winterborn says:

    I was lulled into a trance by that guys voice.

    Really not a good choice of voice over personal to get people excited about the game.
