Its been quiet. Too quiet of late. I’ve found myself busy IRL and a variety of things have conspired to keep things rather uninteresting on the game front of late. Not the least of which is the impending start of the Lord of the Rings(tm): Shadows of Angmar(tm). Open Beta started on Friday, March 30 for pre-order customers at least with release scheduled for April 24.
I got some characters rolling that first weekend in LotRO on Windfola and have rolled up a few others since, but with vacations and movings and work schedules, play time has been a bit barren. In addition, RL work travel has left our WoW group in a bit of a sticky situation: continue to make progress as a foursome (presumably outside of instances) while we await the return of our fifth (and risk leaving them too far behind) or dive into LotRO and see if it is the one-true game and scuttle WoW in its entirety? For some of us, juggling more than one MMO is not an option. Sure would be nice to be able to turn off the XP switch once in a while in order to keep everyone in synch…
And of course, I keep hearing good things about Pirates of the Burning Sea (great find Darren) which is on the horizon as well and looks to be super cool.
Fortunately, the clouds are clearing and the end of the month is looking much better on the gaming and schedule front than the last two weeks.
