…man. Nothing really happening out there in the gaming world right now. So…I’m just going to “blah blah blah” a bit.
Champions Online going free to play. All of this news of MMOs going free to play is no longer news anymore…it is now the norm. Looks like most of the games out there have now accepted F2P as the way to go if you’re not WoW. Good for them. Now…I just don’t want to hear any excuses from them that they’re not making enough revenue to keep things open. Given our impulse buying tendencies, they should be raking it in if they offer up reasonable buying packages. The only wild card out there right now is how DCUO is really going to handle the F2P question. I know the current line is a sub model, but I have no doubts that it is a serious runner up that can just be dropped on the table at a moments notice.
Oh…and LEGO Universe launched. Did anybody notice? There has been zero buzz on this game. As far as I can tell, not many in the blog-o-sphere have even written anything up on it. As excited as I was for this title last year, I can say that I have zero interest in that one.
Oh…on stuff I’m playing…
DCS A-10 continues to impress me. Beta 2 dropped this morning and I can’t wait to give it a spin. There are a handful of issues in beta 1 that, if fixed, can go a long way to making this my go-to game for quite a while.
WoW is now my main MMO of choice right now. My Rogue is almost ready for patch 4.0.3 to drop and for the coming expansion. In the meantime, I’ve been leveling a paladin like a mad man. I honestly didn’t think I would like a paladin, but I’m coming to really like that class. He’s currently level 28. I’ll tell ya…the dungeon finder really shines when you’re leveling a new character.
Well..that’s it for now. Until the news starts picking up, there won’t be many posts here….but stay tuned.
