Last time fantasy author/misogynist/honey-glazed ham of a man Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series graced the Topless Newsfeed, it was because Universal optioned his books for a movie. Apparently, film studio Red Eagle Entertainment has an arc of the wheel (little geometry joke there), because they have also announced they are part of the Wheel movies, and more importantly, will be making Wheel of Time videogames.

I really want to play the first one. You know the troubles I went through to download that bugger only to have my computer crash? Yeah, not fun. Crime never pays.

Are these new games going to coincide with the release of the films?

A WoT MMO would be rad but I don't think it can be done well. Just thinking about game balance and character classes makes me cringe. You'd probably have to weaken the One Power and channelers considerably. RPG or action/rpg might work though. I talked to the producer of the coming movie for a few hours, seems like it might be pretty good, but hard to say. Game and movie are the same company but different teams I believe.

I see people mentioning a "first one". Is there one already?

Yes there was. It was a FPS style game, and it was kind of clunky. I never did finish it. I should give it another go and see if my patience holds out this time.

Oh wow very interesting, thanks for the link.

It came out before I even heard of or started reading the book series, so I guess it's no surprise I hadn't heard of it.

I just don't see how the time constraints of a movie could do justice to the story. I would much rather see it as a long running animation or at the very least live action. So long as they didn't butcher it the way they did with the Sword of Truth series.

I think an MMO in the Age of Legends would be pretty cool. It would give them the freedom of writing a game in an unexplored WOT universe.
