Mindless MMORPG

Mindless banter about MMORPG's and any other game I feel like talking about.

Spellborn's Trip to Lamerton

The general consensus around the PVP circles appears to be  that there are really only 3 PVP MMORPG titles on the horizon that everyone is paying attention to for various reasons. That is obviously a pretty general statement but I hear Age of Conan, Darkfall Online, and The Chronicles of Spellborn  in almost every PVP related conversation.

Well Spellborn took a trip to some lame RPC convention in Munster, as posted in the news section of this site  and on the official site. I  won't blame them for promoting their product but when I read about one of the premier upcoming PVP titles prancing around with the fairies and knights of the round table sipping ale and chasing wenches it certainly isn't very promising.

They are talking about the success of trading cards, LARPs, and table top games....I hope this isn't something that their dev team think is "cool". Trading cards are for Yugio and Pokemon and I personally don't want that attitude anywhere near a game that I have pretty high hopes for.

So in summation.......yeah LAME.

Age of Conan Fileplanet Cryfest

I have been a Fileplanet subscriber for years and have always thought it was a great service. I enjoy being able to grab the demos of new games when they become available and getting the patches and updates I need without the creeping download speeds and hassle.

I applied for the Age of Conan beta shortly after they put up the original sign-up page but I was not  lucky enough to get in. This certainly isn't the first time that FP has come to my rescue and got me into a pre-release beta of a game I was dieing to try and there are a few things that need to be said about this $5 cryfest going on regarding this event.

A) Get a job and then re-address your gaming endeavours B) Recognize that there are people lining up to pay the $5 to get in and the fact that you are not willing to do so only states that it's not that important to you.

Thanks to Funcom and Fileplanet for hooking us up with the keys that we could not otherwise get and letting us try the game we have been waiting so long for. We are all looking forward to the Fileplanet Age of Conan Open Beta Event, and by all I mean the community of disappointed, primarily PVP oriented, gamers that I associate with through various affiliations. Here's the bottom line: The  percentage of people willing to shell out $5 to try the game, that end up buying the game, will be much higher than if  the $5 crybabies got the same group of keys. The "gimme free gimme" groups always consist primarily of the beta hoppers that we all know and love, they  rarely continue playing any game after retail release.
