Perhaps there is an alternate reality in which Sony (and thus SoE) would not have been hacked.
In this other universe, Everquest II is not offline. The game servers hum away, pushing their bits to the beast’s trapped users. (Naturally, that doesn’t really matter since I gave up evercrack — again — a while ago. Honest.)
Perhaps, somewhere out there, in another dimension, there’s another me. He looks like me, walks like me, talks like me. But for all our similarities, there’s one difference between us. A big difference. An absolutely huge, vast, immense, space-and-time-warping difference.
The other me has not encountered Journey Quest.
