For the ESO official launch, Zenimax put up an infographic full of silly little factoids such as the fact that there are apparently something like 5 x 10^58 possible character builds.

“Bah!” say the commenters over at Massively (who are, let’s face it the MMO gaming community’s Lowest Common Denominator… or would be if the Darkfall forums didn’t exist) “90% of those builds aren’t viable!”

Fair enough… I guess that only leaves 5,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 viable builds for me to try out then 😀 Just to be clear – that’s rather more than the USA’s national debt even if it was expressed in what Zimbabwe’s currency went for just before their government had to abandon actually having a currency of their own.

Anyway, I’m far more interested in the fact that 272 bathtubs of coffee being drunk during the production of the game. Given my experience in software development, that doesn’t sound like nearly enough coffee.
