"When I asked my buddy, Corvos, what he thought of Rune, the medieval game released by Loki a few months ago, he made the immediate response of, "Those are nice pics, but I'd rather play something where I can blow stuff up with a few cluster bombs, and a 'bunker buster'." I initially laughed at his response, and then I felt a wake of silence come over me. It?s no surprise, that with his background, he?d say something like that. Corvos is a bit scary.

But Corvos' interpretation of the game (or lack of) didn't persuade me one way or the other. He didn't know what he was missing.

So, when I first started playing Rune I had two initial problems -- One, I had a very hard time getting used to third-person views, and two, I didn't think that I'd get into the whole medieval thang. Ya know, I just didn't think that it would appeal to me.

I was wrong."
