Light Heart(ed)
« on: July 25, 2014, 04:19:58 AM »
So... Lark just reminded me of something I wanted to say.

My WoW account is still active, but hopefully I'll remember to pause it or cancel or something.

I haven't played in months, I think, and haven't felt the pull.  I figure when ancient Everquest tugs at me more than WoW does, then it is time to admit that the WoW love-affair is over.  Not that I've gone back to EQ (but I could!)

I've recently been tempted into trying out The Secret World, and it's pretty neat -- enticing to me now only because of the story-line.  It's a "every myth is real" game... right now at the beginning it's all zombies and death-cults and mystery and puzzles to solve.  Very cool stuff on that level.  Also has something called the Skill Wheel which is VERY much like the AAs of Everquest, so you can really customize your character if you choose to...

Not leaving, just letting you know where I am.

Ta ta!

I'm so out of touch with everything that's going on that isn't related to Shroud of the Avatar.   :o  I'll have to take a peek at The Secret World.

Well it's done - I cancelled my WoW account today.  Blizzard surveys you about your decision on your way out the back door, and I basically told them "you've been dumbing-down the game year-after-year, it's the same-old grind-grind-grind, and you haven't done anything new in the past several years.  I'm done."

Here's another bonus of a game like The Secret World....  pay once, play forever.  I think you can pay to unlock other expansions, but I've been playing off-and-on for several weeks now and haven't run out of content.  The story line has been very rich, and it's completely different from the swords-n-sorcery MMOs I've been playing for over a decade.  Yes yes, there's still the typical collect X things, and "dismember X things" but there's also lots of story arc, and well... it's different for a change.  See you 'round...

Is there a way to try a free demo of that game?

btw... I canceled my WoW account a bit ago... no point in paying for a game I don't use.

Looks like it's $30, which isn't that bad.  I'll watch some gameplay videos and see what I think.  I'd like to have a game that could hold my attention at least for a little while.  I haven't been able to find anything that can keep me interested for long, lately.

Shanni, I sent you a "buddy key" with which  you get 72 hours of playtime...

If anyone else would like some free demo time, send me the email address I should use to send you buddy keys.


"Send out an invite to each of your friends, who then receive a key which lets them try out The Secret World for free for 72 hours. You earn points for every friend who buys the game."

I'd love one of those, too.

I tried The Secret World for a while with my wife and some other friends, but it didn't grip her very much, and the medium level grip it had on me didn't survive her disinterest, heh. I'd rather play with her on a game we both like then try to forge ahead without her!
