Didn't even realize it was this close to release. Did they advertise or did I sleep through it all?

So for the longest time (until yesterday) I thought this was a sports game. *slaps forehead*

I'm playing a mage character in book 2. I'm hoping it gets easier (I'm level 7). Right now I pretty much have to camp after every other fight.

Don't you just drive around in tanks and shoot each other in this game? What's the appeal?

God damn that game is ugly.

Well it is pretty old. It's what I'd call the last of the 2nd generation MMOs. Or was back when I played it. It was similar to DAoC in that there were really no quests (unless you were on the trial island). Leveling skills and such as just pure grind. The skill system was great, and I loved the crafting system. However, after playing WoW, there's no way I'd go back to an MMO that was pure mob grind.

Ring may have solved this, I don't know. Haven't played it for a long time.

I hope Rift does go free, 'cause I like free games. Granted I've not played much DDO or LoTRO these days. As for GW2, I'm looking forward to it also. I'm glad we'll be able to jump this time. Not sure why it bugs me so much when I can't jump in games.

Which can be easily solved by splitting up two separate trees for PvP and PvE so one does not negatively affects the other when tweaks are done.

AKA Rift. They split it up. It's awesome. As for Cataclysm, I'd quit if my wife wasn't playing. I fucking hate that a single heroic takes over two hours to complete now. People hated how easy Wrath was, but they went way too far the other direction for casual players. I only log in now when my guild needs a 5th DPS.

Acleacius wrote on Mar 1, 2011, 13:00:
My question too, are there separate pve servers from pvp and these zone events? E.g. can a pve just play the normal game questing?

It's just like WoW (most of the game is). If you are on PvE server, PvP takes place in an battleground and you can do quests without fear of being ganked. If you're on a PvP server, I assume you can gank people trying to close rifts. This isn't the case on PvE though.

This isn't a WoW killer, it's a WoW distraction. I'm hating Cataclysm, so this is a good distraction for me. Sadly, the quests in Rift are vanilla wow flavor. No real phasing, go here, kill that. Nothing fancy about them (like getting in to a ball and rolling over 1000 evil gnomes).

Hopefully they're longer than a few hours. I show 11 hours between both Fear 2 and the expansion. On the plus side, I bought them on sale so spent only about $25.

Wasn't this a pretty hardcore PvP MMO? I recall them doing a $1 trial a while ago; not sure if it was them. If it's the same one, then I think they had a problem with the skill system in that new players had no chance in the game. People would afk-swim to train up swimming. Stuff like that.

Anyone playing it that can comment?

I thought they admitted that awhile ago, but maybe I'm misremembering. Basically I thought it came down to nobody wanting to tell Gabe just how far behind they were.

I've spent 21 hours in Fallout:NV, and have yet to get to Vegas. I took a break; I think it's time to go back.

On the plus side, the launcher is all fancy now and installs only what it needs to survive. You can play after it finishes getting the core game files and then stream everything else as you run around. The Cata install was like 800 or so megs if I remember correctly (with a few gigs to stream in).

I just can't get immersed enough in this game to feel scared. I tried playing late at night with all the lights out, but no luck.

Maybe I should find an abandoned warehouse and play there on a laptop around midnight.

The chat channels at least have a way to enlarge the text. The tiny UI does suck though. I thought I saw something about scaling the UI, but maybe I was thinking of WoW. On the other hand, my whole screen is filled with shit, so a larger UI would make it harder to see much.

It's definitely WoW with a new skin. I compare it to vanilla WoW more than anything. The quests are very similar, and there's not much (any?) phasing that I can see. No riding quests. Not much of anything fancy with the quests.

None the less, I bought it. I enjoy WoW, but I want something different. The rifts are fun, the invasions are fun, and the classes are fun. That makes it different enough for me (at least for a bit) to give it a try. It's also very polished, something rare in the MMO world.

Ok, just kidding - it's cool he didn't lose his sight. He could stand to lose a few (dozen) pounds though!

Some suggest he did lose weight:

Kinda looks like he lost some.
