I watched that interview a while back and honestly, there are bits of it that makes me think they may have been an issue of understanding or maybe even outright lying by the dev team. AJ asked about the number of monsters (he's refering to the big ass guys like the swamp mammoths i'm sure) and the guy said 300. I call bullshit. I'm sure they're confusing the monsters with the total number of units that you can command. Then there is the whole build your own nation thing. It's a cool idea and i hope it's true, but it comes off as odd because it came out of left field. It makes me wonder if it's really true or if there was a translation issue>_>.
If what they're saying about the amount of time it'll take to finish the single player story is true then i can only hope they managed to keep the gameplay interesting. Namely, as long as i can keep the Circle of doom gameplay to a minimum, i could probably roll that 300 hours easy. especially if i can find a good guild with active, talkative, and helpful players (so hard to find them tho).
I was thinking there would be a paladin class as well. It's pretty much a given for pretty much the same thing mingolo said and it seems they'll throw in classes based on the main characters in the KUF story. So I'll be expecting either and ogre and/or a half vampire class as well (oh leinhart, why did they screw your character up so much?:( ).
Gotta love AJ, In nearly every interview he does you can expect him to ask a question that makes the dev stumble, in this the release date. Obviously there was a bit of a commotion at the end lol. I was surpised that blueside was even at E3. I saw the trailer and assumed that they just sent it to sony and were not actually there because i couldn't find a single interview with them until i looked at AJ's channel.
Glad you posted the link. lord knows i tried, but due to me using a computer that my sister must have stolen from a freaking museum (my poor laptop LCD died:( )I couldn't post anything:/.
