I am sure everyone has seen the World of Warcraft commercial that seems like it has been in every commercial break. You know the one coupled with Mountain Dew where the two people go into the grocery store, turn into orcs and start attacking each other? I doubt you’ll need it, but I’ll put it into the post below. The thought occurred to me though that this commercial is probably well loved by WoW fans even if it is an amazingly annoying and awful commercial.
Lately I’ve been getting back into to ToonTown for some reason. I know I know it is a kids game. Really that has never bothered me though. I’ve always looked for top quality games regardless of who the game is targeted at. To me, if the game is fun it is worth playing. And honestly, ToonTown is fun and thus it is worth playing. Well at least for short bursts it is. It is kind of like City of Heroes where the repetitiveness comes up really quickly in the game.
I haven’t done an MMO Laws post for awhile and looking Raph’s laws again last night I made a realization that a couple of his laws really connected in an odd way. In fact I thought that one law was in conflict with another law. In particular I want to talk about Koster’s Law and how the Community Size Law basically counters it.
Last week was SoE’s yearly fan fest where they have fans from all their games get together to have fun, talk about their games, and make announcements for the year ahead. I have never really been too excited about many of their other games, so of course I want to talk mostly about what they talked about in reference with [amazonify]B001EPZD7A::text::::EverQuest 2[/amazonify]. The big announcement was their yearly expansion announcement. It isn’t ever really a surprise that they announce them, but just more what exactly will be in it.
Every now and then I get a hankering to play City of Heroes again, lately I’ve been getting into this urge again and have reactivated my account just a short time ago. COH (I realize some call it CoX since Villains but come on, you can’t do this to an established name) is actually in one of the more interesting positions in the MMO market. At launch it was met with rave reviews. It was fun, it was bug free, it used new concepts that were just starting to take off, and it innovated. What could go wrong with such a stunning game?

After long last, I finally got into a new zone in EoF. The jump between Steamfont and Lesser Faydark is huge, you can’t really go straight from one to the other, you really need to stop over in Feerrott, Everfrost, Lavastorm, and Sinking Sands first. There is a dungeun instance that you could go to instead named Klak’anon, it seems to be the main bridge. However, it is rather dull and uninteresting and has few quests and is more group oriented. So if you want to do quests, gain AA, and solo, you are bessed served in one of the others. Read more “EQ2: Lesser Faydark”
