ArcheAge - Day 2 - Following the Road

The Experience:

Day 2 was pretty much a rinse and repeat of the game time from Day 1. I found myself doing the same "Kill # bad things" and "deliver this thing to that person" quests. I did get to use a glider in one quest which had some neat steering mechanics.

Otherwise, I only managed to level 14 and just wasn't into the questing so thought it better to call it a night.

My Opinion:

While I didn't play as much on Day 2, I did learn a few things. I learned the Labor Points do not accumulate while you're logged out which made me regret having logged out with just 1. Apparently, Labor Points accumulate at a rate 5 points every 5 minutes of game time. Not sure if this changes, but as is, that seems pretty crappy and further rains on my idea of being primarily a crafter.

As for sandbox elements, I see I can raise some crops and there are some hints that there is more to the game, but the experience so far is firmly themepark. As I mentioned previously, I had heard it opens up later on, so going to try to push through some levels to see if that's the case.

All-in-all, short update, but the game hasn't really 'hooked' me. I've been trying to read every quest and keep up on the story, but find myself having to resist the urge to just hit F, F, F. The story line, for me, has just been forgettable. 

Even being a short update, I'm disappointed that it seems so negative as I'm trying to keep an open mind and maintain some optimism. Here's hoping Day 3 is a bit more fun. :)
