Post EverQuest II Adding Vaguely Terrifying Voice/Facial Tech

OK, so I actually sort of love the ideabehind EverQuest II's latest bit of technical wizardry, but well, when I say 'wizardry,' I mean less Gandalf and more the really clumsy kid from Harry Potter -millenniabefore he became improbably talented. Basically, though, EverQuest II will ' via mic and webcam ' soon be able to read your vocal and facial cues and translate them 1:1 into Norrath. Conceptually, that's great! So long, demons of anonymity. Meet one of mankind's most primal, utterly essential roots of communication. But, uh, can we maybe try this again in ten years or so? And without the frog person?
