New Warhammer Online Footage, Interview

Over the years I've been following the development of Warhammer Online: Age Of Reckoning, I've noticed one steady trend. It's the gradual subversion of the formerly calm, carefully paced executive producer Jeff Hickman into Paul Barnett's comedy sidekick. I blame Barnett entirely for this. That nice man, all gone strange. It's very telling that when Kieron and I went to visit their studios in Washington DC a couple of years back, I was drawn to Hickman and Kieron to Barnett. What it tells is that Gillen and Barnett are both eccentrics, while Hickman and I are calm, thoughtful and better looking. I digress. The positive result of these personalities at the helm of WAR is seeing both sides appearing in-game. WAR is looking like an MMO that will sit down to tell you a good story, then fart in your face and run away. I stress that this is a good thing. Anyhow, point is, you can see Hickman and Barnett doing their thing in the video below, along with some new in-game footage.
