Dinosaurs and dungeons... we're looking in-depth at two games a lot of people are excited about releasing.By Michael Byrne - 3 weeks ago
We both bought the game at around the same time but i was left to solo and make my own way...which probably was for the best.
As for introducing new players....WoW had to be the go to game, most MMO's were fantasy based and the ease at which you got into WoW was incredible, just a shame the butchered themselves with each progressing patch...to the point that WoW players trying any other game were twisted in wanting it as easy as WoW made it.
Two da bombs...make that three
One Da-Bomb for (you guessed it) Path of Exiles new patch...been playing for years and these big (but not new act adding) patches have managed to excite me yet again with what is being added....especially the latest and last sub class announcement for the Scion class.
Second Da-Bomb for Disgaea PC...nostalgia is strong with this one and very happy to see it finally ported to the PC (even though it probably deserves an A-Bomb for it's issues)
And third, Da-Bomb for the PS2 network adapter...never did get to play FFXI in the UK but for some of the other games (TOCA and Star Wars Battlefront) good times were had
QOTW: I believe my first MMO was technically Flyff, although the first MMO that I really devoted a significant amount time into was Adventure Quest Worlds. I've since, more or less, stopped playing both games. I'll occasionally jump into an event on AQW . but you couldn't get me to touch Flyff with a 10 foot pool.
BTW: A bomb to the guy who mentioned "Trekkers" for reminding me of the goddamned lectures my aunt used to give me about the difference between them and "Trekkies". Seriously, she got really intense about it. -_-
