Funcom fucked me pretty badly with Conan, I was hyped as shit about that game and to this day still love the shit out of it as much as I hate it.
I'm very interested in the Secret World, but like an abused girl friend I have a hard time going back to a company that lit my dick on fire.
I must say that link you posted khel was entertaining.
If you at launch create "Sephiroth1337" then you will be the only "Sephiroth1337" in the The Secret World universe!
Got a good chuckle out of me, and whilst i love the idea of a single server mmo (one of eve's great selling points) I still can't shake off funcoms barbed wire penis.
If this MMO still appears interesting to me a few weeks after launch I might give it a try, but we will see. I'm far more likely at this point to go back to SWTOR which I only stopped playing after a few distracting weeks in real life that left me with little desire to jump back in straight away.
