About This File
To coincide with the release of Ultima Online: the Second Age, this issue features a lengthy interview with Richard Garriot in additional to a feature covering the game itself.
There is also a 21-page feature on flight sims.
Always a pleasure, this month's "English Conversation For Network Games" article teaches Japanese players how to speak in the faux Shakespearean English used in Ultima games. As someone who teaches English in Japan, it amuses me to think of Japanese players barely competent in English trying to greet foreign players using some of the phrases covered:
"Hail, honored knight of Chaos!"
"Well met, sir!"
"Fortune guard thy steps, m'lord!"
