FOOL will be Hilarious

Edge is dribbling out more of their interview with Interplay president, Hervé's Brother.

"An MMOG must be a lot deeper than a standalone game. It’s not a shooting game we’re making. You can shoot, but it’s a very small portion of the game. The game itself is about reconstructing the world. What is unique about our project is how we’re trying to get it into many communication systems.

"This is a big problem for World Of Warcraft, because the fantasy universe is not compatible with modern communication systems. It would be odd to receive an SMS from a troll. But in a post-apocalyptic world…"

... it would be almost as odd considering that text messaging requires a functioning telecommuncations infrastructure. Might be better to have a shaman contact the player in their dreams: "Once again my spirit touches you from the void. Chosen{limpbizkit84}, our crops fail, our reserves are meager. Return to us with 10 Gecko Pelts, 5 Cat's Paw Magazines, and 1 Fuzzy Painting. Your failure is our lost light."

And now for the money quote:

"We appreciate some portions of [Bethesda's work], and we’re not necessarily fans of everything. I think they miss a lot of the humour, and the fans seem to agree with that. Fallout 3 was a little bit too serious - that’s definitely not where we’re going. Our Fallout MMOG will be extremely funny."

Thanks to Jaesun, Tycn, and riverqueen for pointing this out
