Games and TV

Still not playing any MMOs. In fact I'm still not gaming a huge amount anyway, but when I do I've just been on a Football Manager 2012 and Skyrim. I do kinda want to play an MMO, but there's just nothing interesting enough to warrant a sub fee and I'm not that inspired with any of the current F2P games. Sure, a sub fee isn't a huge amount to spend, but I know right now I wouldn't play any of my existing MMO accounts for more time and enjoyment than I would get out of the 3 pints of beer or whatever for the same cost. 

The Secret World did tempt me a little, but at £40? No way would I play it enough to bother with that cost. Personally I think £40 is a total fucking piss take for a game with a sub fee AND a cash shop. BOLLOCKS TO THAT! Though even if it was less, I just don't think I would play it enough and certainly I would drop it like a sack of wet turds the moment either the Planetside 2 or Mechwarrior Online betas start.

So there you go, not much to say on MMOs right now. I'm just waiting still...

In other news... I've been catching up on TV shows I didn't watch for some stupid reason before. Rome was not bad, historical artistic licence wasn't toooooooooo bad. And yeah, yeah I'm stupidly late to the party, but Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes were amazing. The British versions of course, I got warned about the US remake of Life on Mars and just have to say christ on a bloody bike! The US makes some great TV, but they really know how to screw up iconic TV shows from other countries. Just watch the originals in everything, actually that's generally a good rule in life.

    Hear, hear. The first wave such as UO were social experiments. Then we got trial runs (PS, WoW, ..) and now, we just get the ARPU maxing out games. Such a shame that so many get off the wagon without the Corps realising they are killing their golden goose.
    Ah well, PS2 on the horizon, till then, same as you, not entused to pay to grind.

  2. Looking forward to GW2 release, actually, even tough im pretty sure i'll get bored fast. But i have not played any other game since jumping off star wars way back when, and im getting a tiny bit... itchy.

    I don't dare thinking about PS2 anymore, the game cannot possible live up to my by now epic internal hype fest :P
