TabulaCast Episode 12
Thu, 21 Feb 2008 15:00:00 GMT [download/play]



Recently there has been quite a stir about a news story in the Korean Times regarding NCSoft's Q407 fiscal report, and it claims that Tabula Rasa is a sinking ship. But in addition to this was the post over at Massively.com which spun this story even further.
 
Well since then, NCSoft has responded saying this is not the case and we'll need to put our aluminum foil hats away. Massively also recanted their story, issuing a follow-up which explains things a bit better. So John and I decided to make this short episode mainly pertaining to that news, since it caused so much commotion this week. Also, be sure to read the posts by John in the Tabula Blogger concerning this issue.
 
Next week (or thereabouts) will be a large show for us completely centering around the Tabula Rasa Community. A few interviews are in the works currently which hopefully will make that episode an epic one.
 
The theme song this week is "Out of Space" by The Prodigy.

'Takes me back...' by Dathmar
Submitted on 2008-02-22 04:49:13 CST
Got all the Prodigy's albums - old and new....brings back a lot of memories of reckless abandon ( actually that would make a good TR clan name !)

So I have just got the Collector's Edition and the game is going to CLOSE !!! - Oh No
;)

I think $100 million is more than WOW cost to produce - there is no way that TR costs that much money to make....also 3 months after release there is no way to tell if the game is going to be a success or failure.
As to Auto Assault - I think that had about 10,000 players when the game was closed...so it seems TR has some way to go before hitting those numbers....
I'm guessing that NC Soft thought that the game was going to be bigger initially ...but there is no reason to think the numbers won't increase - they just need to keep adding content and promoting the game.
...and they should add buggies, quads, tanks and mechs....I would love that....

Another good show - thanks chaps.
