So many games, so little time.
We play Wildstar for the sci-fi scenario and the popping graphics. (The wife thinks World of Warcraft’s are crisper?) I’m not so sure about that. The green vegetation is awesome. And the game mechanics are very unlike World of Warcraft, requiring a lot of user movement to project and avoid “telegraph” abilities.
But, I must admit, going back to World of Warcraft too, for the “fantasy” fix, is a guilty pleasure. And 9 1/2 years on, it’s a pleasure I’m still happy to endulge in. (Three 90s, two 88’s, not even playing all that often, more long-term characters moving slowly towards Outlands, Northrend, Twilight Highlands, and Pandaria, more deleted levels than I care to admit, and my new characters, with partners supplied from the wife’s stable of characters, are testament to that.) I ground out some more argent tournament tokens and supplied my second monk with his own dual heirloom weapons. My two monks have dual maces and dual swords respectively, and a warrior has dual arcanite reapers. And I’ve got the cloth, leather, mail, and plate armor sets as well. (Two piece, alas. We’re, the wife and I, a small guild, and the perks we get are little bonuses, not gear.)
The wife and I also both build places in Landmark. It’s amusing to build things, and mess around with building tweaks, and gives us an idea of what Everquest:Next might look like should that ever materialize. (Answer: Not bad at all.)
