FireFly Reborn!

Browncoats everywhere can rejoice that their favourite SF universe is in the process of being reborn, albeit as an online RPG.

Like Capt. Mal Reynolds stumbling in after a bar fight, the short-lived but much beloved sci-fi series Firefly will soon make an unexpected return, not as a TV show, but as a massively multiplayer online game.

Now that's shiny.

Shiny, indeed! While I am no fan of online role playing games (comes of spending many years of the original style of RPG's) this could very well change things. My only hope is that they produce the game for consoles rather than PCs alone, (or at least make a Mac version). I'd hate to have to upgrade one of my Windoze boxes solely to play a game.

At least there'll be one game out there for folks like us! A libertarian/freedom lovers 'verse with an implacable statist enemy. Man...I can hardly wait.

(Thanks to William Gillis for the heads up on this one!)

I just rented the FireFly series from Netflix. Damn good yarn.
I don't game, but I do like good sci-fi. Nice anti-government theme they got goin' on.

I wonder what would happen if a bunch of virtual browncoats got together to re-ignite the war for independence?

Warren,
Do you honestly think that wouldn't occur? Shoot, if I were to play it then that would be my ultimate goal. Hopefully the designers won't make that an impossibility.
