A few months ago I finally took the plunge and started playing World of Warcraft. What triggered this action was the fact the WoW is now free to play for the first 20 levels. Sweet deal!
I mean, okay, they already had a free trial period before that so essentially people could play it for free. The problem with limited trials is that I am a busy person. There might be days when I could play a game for 6 hours straight but there are also weeks when I don't even play for more than 30 minutes a day. So the nice thing about playing WoW until level 20 is that I can take my time and level as slowly as I want.
I have been happily playing as a Blood Elf for over a month now.
Then yesterday I found out that Rift now has the same thing in the form of Rift Lite - players can now play for free until level 20. Now obviously I think this is a good thing... except I simply don't have time to regularly play two different MMORPG games.
What to do? Rift vs WoW!
Decisions like this are so hard yet deliciously fun.

In other news, I have also been playing this great browser RPG game Echo Bazaar. PM me or comment on this blog if you play it, too because I am looking for more friends. Specifically, I need a friend to organize a theft for me. Here is my profile page.
