let me introduce myself, im Steve, im in the UK, im 30 years old and i have played MMO's for years, pretty much since EQ, through to SWG to MxO, EvE, WoW of course and most recently i started out with DCUO.
Recently though i have lost my way, i think maybe im getting to old for MMO gaming.. let me explain that.
I had rift on pre-order, i was excited for it.. im not WoW's biggest fan (ok, im on the other side of the fan fence) but i was looking forward to it, i read a preview or 3 and the constant "warcraft clone" statement gave me cold feat, so i cancelled the pre-order....
Another few months past, and i got exited again, so i preorderd... again! however more and more comments were coming through.. "its just like wow" a friend told me, all be it with more polish. so i got cold feat again and cancelled the pre-order.
as DCUO hit release i got a bee in my bonnet and decided to download it, i dont know why, but i did... wow that one was plagued with issues and reminded me that very few MMOs are that great on there release day... the need a bit of ironing before they get things together.
so i resigned myself to giving rift a few months to settle down... hence this post...
Fact is, i want it, i have friends already playing the "head start" everyone telling me how good the game is, and what im missing out on.. by the time i get in now most will have had a 7 day head start... i may be 30, im still as thick as when i was 15 lol
* totally pointless post i know, but wanted to introduce myself to the community :) see you (fingers crossed) friday night!
