So, like, apparently some game is headstarting today? There are people excited about it. I'm not. Don't get me wrong, it looks like a great game with a beautiful visual style. In fact, it looks exactly like the type of game I would love to play.
But I'm not going to. Not yet.
Call it the 'TOR Effect.' I simply cannot let myself get excited about another game. Not for at least six months. I guess I'm just so gun-shy of diving into yet another MMO after giving TOR as much love and attention as I could spare. I've been following TOR developments since 2007 and the past few months have been pretty rough on me.
So yes, Guild Wars 2, you look interesting. You look like fun. Hell, maybe even one day I could play you. But not right now. I'm still too wounded, too raw. Jesus, I sound like a Twilight character.
Anyhoo, I do plan on checking out Guild Wars 2 at some point, but I'll wait for the inevitable 6 month sale at Amazon. They get to work the kinks out, I get a lower price, and I don't get emotionally crushed by my lofty expectations again.
Next week, I'll be posting my impressions of the Mists of Panderia beta. And of course, I'll be reporting any and all Old Republic news that I can get a hold of!
**UPDATE: Of course, as I write this, there's some SWTOR news! Looks like extra character slots are on the way. I fully expect them to be part of either the F2P conversion or the huge HK-51/Cathar patch.**
