Har! So I was totally wrong in my prediction as to which would be the most popular dimensions. Grim & Daemon are still looking for players. Could this be the one and only game where FluffyBunny server would fill up faster than EatYerBrains server?
Granted, looking purely at the list of gamers I hang out with (e-hang? meh), Arcadia-RP is the place to be. Granted also that that may not be a representative sample of any kind…
Not that I’ve seen a vast amount of (or indeed any) RP going on in Arcadia yet, but I’m sure it’s around. And nobody I’ve seen isn’t RP-ing, so to speak – griefing, being an asswad, that sort of thing. Though as usual, I’ve shunted faction and general chats over to their own tabs where I don’t keep being forcibly reminded that 99% of people in chat channels become inane wankers the second they put the cursor in the chat box.
In any case, it’s nice to be able to say Et in Arcadia ego. Considering the game and all.
So it’s been a week since early access… doesn’t feel like it from here. I’ve spent far more time lusting after playing than actually playing – except yesterday, when I finally got in a good solid 4 or 5 hours. That was fun! And now that I’ve been paid, I’ll finally be able to spring for that lifetime sub; yeah, I’m going for that, for no other reason than that it’ll be nice not to have to sub and I want to support Funcom.
The Secret World may dribble into nothingness after the first freebie month is over, but I’m hoping it’s going to turn into a SWG-like sleeper hit with some people playing it for years. And there endeth the comparison – no NGE please, Funcom!
It might be a little late for reviews, especially since I think most people reading this are also playing or have found reviews elsewhere? Let me know if you want an Ysharros Special (TM) (i.e. not very objective and rather waffly).
I will do a quick and dirty post on crafting, possibly later today – I’m off to yoga (no seriously – I’m hurting already), because it’s a lot less complicated than it sounds and it’s a lot more useful than you’d think and it seems people might like a gentle intro to it. Crafting that is. Not yoga.
Gotta go. Some French woman (not me) is waiting to bend me into improbable pretzel shapes. Apparently I’m limber… “for my age” (I was fine until she said that last bit!).
PS: MMORPG are giving away free in-game T-shirts! If you want one, hit the place quick, there aren’t that many left.
