No more keeping quiet.

For three weeks I've been in the process of writing a post about the game launch, but I kept stopping myself because I think that the people who read this site (whoever you are) will eventually get sick of how much I talk about Warhammer.

So I've been waiting for something else to happen to me, which it hasn't because I'm working 80+ hours a week and completely obsessing about the game. To recap what has happened in the past three weeks:

*Five-part-zomg-this-girl-talks-a-lot interview at Ten Ton Hammer

*We announced our launch day: SEPTEMBER 18TH MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR MY SANITY

*We lifted our NDA today, and the internet appears to have exploded.

*Incredibly edited, amazingly humorous, horrifically embarrassing video interview between Jeff "I <3 Circuit Breakers" Gerstmann and Paul "I EMBARRASS CARRIE FOR A LIVING" Barnett

...and then it happened. Something finally happened to me that didn't involve Warhammer. But it does involve games. This story is just...too...awesome.

Toy maker Hasbro Inc. has updated its classic Clue game for today's tabloid culture to include younger characters, more weapons, and new rooms, including a spa and guest house.

The six characters' last names remain the same, but their first names and bios have been updated. For example, Miss Scarlet is now Kasandra Scarlet, a famous actress often featured in tabloids. And Mr. Green is now Jacob Green, an African-American "with all the ins."

Colonel Mustard is now Jack Mustard, a former football player. The professor? Now Victor Plum, a billionaire video game designer.

Carrie - now that the NDA is down I'd just like to say - The ToK is an amazing feature that adds unbelievable layers to both the PvE and the RvR game.

Cudos on a job VERY well done.

Nobody can ever get sick of hearing about Warhammer. I bet you alone have sold about a dozen people here after throwing WAR out there like the Bush Administration cramming "terrorists, terrorists, terrorists!" down our throats day in and day out.

Seriously though, I probably never would have looked at WAR if you didn't make it and EA Mythic sound so fucking awesome.

Ya know, if people don't like hearing about WAR, then that's just too bad, haha. As long as it's still on it's way out, and being hyped as much as it is, as long as we watch the internet at all, we're hearing about it. But, still, good to hear from YOU again.

Oh, and, that story on Clue... DEPRESSING!! We still have an ORIGINAL... I think. And now, I'm NEVER getting rid of it! Oh, society and you're need to update, wwwhhhyyy.

I'm not sick of Warhammer at all but the breaking news about Clue is stunning. But doesn't think happen with Monopoly occasionally?

Perhaps one day you can be a Victor Plum

I don't get it... what does the story have to do with you, Carrie? I can't see the connection.

Always enjoy your interviews since you give out a lot of information without all of the fluff.

Hey Carrie. I wrote an article on you and Peter B., Josh D and Jeff Hickman that I think you'd like.
