I hope you guys are proud of yourselves

Because you should be.  My sister and I just played through Episode 1, and our jaws were on the ground.  I can hardly sit still long enough to type this, so let me just say it in bullets, so that way I can go bouncing down my street in glee as soon as possible:

- The adventure style has not felt this sincere and crisp in over a decade.
- Your KQ-innovations (convo trees, panning screens instead of cutoffs) were inspired.
- The characters were among the most fleshed-out I've ever seen in a video game (H, L.A., and the CKs sound awesome, not to mention S giving me the willies).
- Related to above, the dialogue was sharp, and felt human.
- And, last but not least, the game looks GREAT!

I.  Cannot.  WAIT!  For the remaining episodes!  You have done the inconceivable - you took a franchise that was already great (after all, it wouldnt have been worth the attention otherwise!) and vaulted it to stratospheric new heights.  It's no wonder Activision/Vivendi caved not once but TWICE and gave you the go-ahead.  Talk about a labor of love!

I am actually, for real, starting to tear up a bit writing this, and I'm not exactly a heart-on-my-sleeve kind of guy either.  =P I really hope that, maybe not today or tomorrow, busy as you all still are, but someday, you take a step back and look at the magnitude of your accomplishment.  You deserve all the praise in the world!

One HELL of a loyal fan,
Voidsoul

Thank you voidsoul! And welcome to the forums. :) I'm so glad you enjoyed the game so much! Aww, I'm getting a little teary-eyed now myself.  ;]
