 I just got my brand-spanking new gaming machine and  after some time of being denied good gaming, I decided to take my new toy through its paces, and find some good  gaming content to satisfy this void that has been left in my soul for the last year or so.  With this in mind I picked up several games including  Age of Conan, Only to be throughly disapointed from the get-go.

Here's what weant down.

I am  not terribly picky about how game(s) set up their content markets, after all they gotta' make their money too. But, I am adamently against restricting classes off the bat to players... What age of conan did, wasn't even to create premium classes. They just locked most of the chocies of regular classes to users.  This left me a sour taste in my mouth from the get go, I was already disgusted the game told me I had to fork over cash to be a ranger or a different kind of mage!  So, already feeling like I was going to be nickled and dimed to death playing the game I, set out trying to forget and forgve and enjoy the game.  For the first few minutes I got to admire some of the scenery since I was now playing the game with an HD-monitor and a graphics card that can eat top of the line graphics like candy and  ask for more :)  But beneath most of that impressive scenery was a ordinary game play... nothing really stood out about the game action.  so, finding it hard to get exicted about this game, I decided to turn some of my  thoughts to their forums, only to find i needed a "key" to register on their forums...

 

" so let me get thist straight" I thought...  The game has limited free users to  all of about 3 choices... and effectively silenced them on the forums...   Together, this simply turned me offf and  tried that I might  to pay no attention to how this game chose to make its money... I just couldnt help but feel like I was beong preasured to fork over cash form the moment I installed it, it's kind foa  cheap and dirty feeling like coming home from a visit to disney world.
