    Okay, so this is a 2.5 hour interview, but really, I started tuning out around 20 or 30 minutes into it.

    Lots of contradictions, and lots of old school eq2 arrogance. But it was interesting to hear him speak on eqnext.

    Edit: One of funniest parts of this interview (paraphrasing and summarizing)....

    "You have to have someone who can go to the board and say "I know the game people will want to play in 4 years.....You can't get caught up in market research, the design team knows what players want.......Anyway, I think we went through six or seven iterations on eqnext; building it and then scraping it like 6 or 7 times.....It had so much potential...."

    Second funny moment:
    "Next wasn't actually Dave's creation. But he did a really good job of taking it and making it his own....."
