After a while away from WoW, I've grown a little bored of it. And with my first year at uni almost coming to a close, I feel like reminiscing and moving back to an old MMOG of mine for the next few weeks.
Only problem is which game to go for:
There's Planetside, which has its troubles apart from lag & that bloody overpowered chaingun. But there is something fulfilling about attacking an enemy base on all sides (especially if you're in a Liberator bomber over said base, chucking down anti-personnel carpet bombs like rain )
Then there's Star Wars Galaxies. Yes, it's ended up being nothing more than bloody Jedi Wars. But the space battles are pretty cool, and then there's the Rage of the Wookies expansion coming in the next month or so
Another alternative is Neocron II. God knows who would decide that the same game with better graphics should be considered a sequel (except maybe EA), but actually pointing a gun and firing it is more relaxing (especially after a tough day) than targetting a mob and selecting 'Attack'. Only thing that's stopping me is the piss-poor accounts system that ReaKKtor (NC2's developers) decided to use.
Then, there's EVE online. Mining is about as relaxing as meditating on tranquilisers but there I can always write a macro for it Still, it's decent enough to fly around in beautiful space.
And last, there's WoW again - A decent game, redoes everything established from past MMOGs and does them well, but in the end there's nothing really new - Except maybe better landscapes & graphics and the such.
Only problem is that I can't decide which to go for - I'll do the Lounge thing and post it here So which should I go for?
