So Bioware is making the new MMO, Star Wars The Old Republic, and I must say I’m hopeful. Bioware is a great company and has pushed out some really great games in the past (KOTOR anyone?). Lets keep our fingers crossed
I’ve been playing World Of Warcraft for almost a year now. Kinda crazy to think that I’ve played one game for over 10 months and not get tired of it. However, all good things must come to an end. Why did I quit? Family and time. I love the game however when you get to the “end-game” it just requires too much time. Seeing as how my free time is a commodity as it is, I’d rather spend it with my family. So to all WoW friends out there, I bid you adieu.
I purchased World Of Warcraft about two weeks ago and all I can say is WOW (punn intended). My first impression of MMORPGs was from Ever Crack…er Ever Quest. Let’s just say that I didn’t want to be associated with “those people.” After all, they would spend more hours in a day playing a game than working, sleeping, or anything else. With that kind of negative image who would want to play MMORPGs?
About a year ago I purchased Guild Wars while I was traveling. I figured that since I’m away from home, I have time to spare to play/try an MMO. While I liked Guild Wars, I wasn’t really into it. Most likely because I didn’t have any friends on at the same time. A year later I decided to try it again and for about a month I’ve had fun with it. Wasn’t “blow me away” but it was fun. Some of my friends suggested WOW so after contimplating the idea of paying a monthly fee to play a game I decided to try it for a month.
To my surprise, I have been blown away by WOW. It just offers so much content, my friends are on it, and it’s just a lot of fun. I’m now asking myself, “why oh why did you not buy this game before now?” If you haven’t played it, try it.
A travesty has occurred. The fan on my GeForce 3 Ti500 has died. This really sucks for me since it was my best card. For now, I’m stuck playing UT2004 on a 32Megabtye TNT2 Card at the lowest possible settings…
