UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

Even though this interview didn't reveal as much new information as I would have liked, it was a great read nonetheless. In addition, it is nice to see that the game is getting such mainstream attention from websites like MSNBC.com, which I am sure will help to get even more people interested in the game. I think that this is exactly the kind of approach the game should take to ensure that it is as successful as possible, and I cannot wait to read more articles similar to this one!
It was a little weird to just have the same 30 seconds of video just looping through the whole story. Is it too much to ask even to just give the exact same content from different angles? It wouldn't really reveal any more, but it would make things a bit more exciting...
