After a couple of weeks playing a ton of DDO and getting a variety of alts about where I’d like them to be, and bearing in mind that we now have regular groups playing two nights a week, I’m taking something breaklike by playing something else during the day.
So what else am I playing?
Guild Wars lasted a couple of days and about 6 hours in total before I got frustrated with it again. I’m not uninstalling it but I have no desire to play any more of it right now.
There’s also World of Warcraft, which I’m playing about once a week. My subscription runs out in a couple of weeks and if I were making the decision right now, I would let it lapse. I’m just not playing it enough, and while I was playing a ton for a while there, I needed a (non-permanent) break from it.
I scored a 10-day trial key for Star Trek Online at Origins. I just activated that and will be giving it a whirl in the next few days. I’m sure I’ll have something to say about it.
I think that the NDA allows me to reveal that I’m in the LotRO F2P beta. Can’t say anything else, although I’ll tell you that I’ve spent some time with it.
Lastly, there’s Champions Online, to which I have a lifetime sub and which I figured this would be a good time to get back to. I spent a good chunk of the morning playing it and it’s just as fun as I remembered it, although the pace of its action is very different than that of DDO and that took some adjustment. I’ve been playing Matterhorn, my might-based brick, who is feeling incredibly badass right now.
So right now I’m primarily playing DDO and CO. Here’s hoping I’ll get out a post or three on one or both in the next couple of days.
