Topic: What Are You Playing?
I could have sworn we already had one of these, but I couldn't find it.
Same rules as the What Are You Watching Threads, but for games! Board, video, mind, take your pick, what are you playing?
I managed to snag a Beta Key for the Closed Beta that was happening this weekend for WildStar, so I spent some time yesterday and today playing and recording (let's play, for those that don't know that about me) for about 4 hours in total.
WildStar is an MMO due to be officially released on June 3rd. I've never been an MMO guy, I never really understood the appeal, but most of that was based on WoW and the community/RL mythos around it and just never having it be a part of my life. I tried Guild Wars 2 during a free play weekend they had a year or so back, but wasn't really impressed and just kinda forgot about it. But I gotta say after just the little I played this weekend, I am thoroughly surprised. I had sooo much fun. The style of it is great, the humour is awesome without being too intruding, and looking through a couple of minor glitches (it is still beta so to be expected) the gameplay and mechanics are all great.
I started off saying I would probably play it for the weekend and then forget about it, and ended saying I could see it being a regular feature for my channel I was enjoying it so much. I still don't understand the whole idea of getting addicted to an MMO, I don't really get how that happens, but that's probably just my personality type more than anything, but it was definitely very fun and I could see there being a lot of great stuff coming in it.
