Guild Wars

My character enjoying the summer breeze
God help me... I've gone and got a MMPOG game again. I've played out DAoC, I was a mod of the offical forums for Eve-Online and I still play it, not to mention the oodles of these games I reviewed and tested working for the GateNetwork... and now I've gone and bought Guild Wars.

So far I really like this game. Its great for the casual mmpog gamer like me, but I feel that it has enough depth to hold other gamers. Plus its absolutely beautiful. I really prefer the look it has to World of Warcraft which is a great game, but something about this game feels nicer. Plus its free.

No monthly fees? In a massively multiplayer game? Cunning eh? I don't know what their business model is, but I like it!

That shot above is the size I captured it at, just cropped. Looks damn good huh? There is a real attention to detail in this game that, while not quite up to WoW's standard, is pretty damn great. I'll be losing a good few hours of my day to this game I expect, at least until Miriam gets here, then I'll be gaining a good few hours with her. My character name is Quinn Lightfoot if you want to add me as a friend in game, I'd love to meet up with people in there. Hopefully I'll at least see moriarty6 in there at some point...

EVE?
You still play EVE? I'm currently fiddling about with a Buddy (14-Day Trial) account, possibly going to be reactivating my old account. That is, if I find enough incentive to. Gimmie a ring - I'm "Sleazy" (a joke account, for sure).

I find it ironic that even though I have two free WoW accounts (which I use) I still need some other MMOG.

Re: EVE?
Yeah, I've got a free Eve account, so I'm still in there. Aleksi is my usual character, but I'm not playing much as my girlfriend is over from the US right now.

Two free WoW accounts huh? lucky git ;)
