Quote of the Day – Firefly Universe Online

We’ve been had.

Owen Good of Kotaku, on Firefly Universe Online

Friday there was buzz about an MMO based on the Firefly universe being a possibility again.

The "FU" part is right...

The “FU” part is right…

Today though, it seems like the world is singing a different tune.

In something of an odd twist, my wife and I just watched the series again… all 14 episodes… we have it on DVD… so we could ask aloud once again to nobody in particular, “Really Fox?”  And yet, even in that state of mind, I wasn’t at all excited about Friday’s announcement.

Not because I somehow knew it was a hoax.  I am not that insightful.

No, it was just because I have heard enough, “Hey, we’re going to make an MMO on popular property X” over the last few years to need to see something substantial before I can generate any enthusiasm.

See Planet Michael and that Wheel of Time MMO for examples.

Addendum: Nothing is ever simple.
