I tried this game, and I don't ever see it being that great. The reason? The way it's set up, internet-wise. Especially with the melee, the only way I see of having a good game is with ping of 50 or less, and since there is no server or host or anything, there is no way to filter based on ping, and thus that will never happen. Too bad, as I kinda like the concept: The Opera/Specialist mod with some combo and rpg elements.
I told him once or twice; to stop playin' cards, and shootin' dice.... he's in the jailhouse now
