Personally, I am quite looking forward to playing Majestic. Aside from
anything else, it sounds like quite a novel experience! I don't like
being bothered on my cell phone generally, but if they do the episodic
plots well, I think I could really start to look forward to the next
time Majestic phones me to involve me in a story. Maybe I have too
much time on my hands, I dunno.

In any case though, believe that some of us are excited about it.
