Hope you are doing well. Been pretty busy lately both with work on jury duty… bah. Also football season has started and I really enjoy watching football. Not sure where I got it from. My Dad is a huge basketball fan… he even keeps the score of some games. Since I’ve been so busy I’ve decided to let my Rift subscription lapse. Yeah I know sometimes life gets in the way of having fun.
I am still definitely looking forward to Guild Wars 2… although nobody knows when it will be coming out, although I bet it will be sometime in 2012. I have also been checking out a few different games as well. Path of Exile looks like a pretty good time waster.. but I am having not very much luck in getting a beta key. Hopefully it will be going into Open Beta pretty soon. It seems like it has been in the closed beta for a while.
I’ve also been reading up some on Star Wars Galaxy. Again game play looks pretty fun from what I’ve seen. I’m not a huge star wars fan [gasp] but again we’ll have to see what happens.
There has been some news from Korea and the beta for Blade and Soul. I watched some very interesting game play footage and the graphics are definitely nice. You can check out this Youtube video. It takes you from level 1-4 and is about 35 minutes long.
It does look pretty heavily instanced. There are also some very long cut scenes. During one of the cut scenes I was tempted to go get a bag of popcorn. But… the scenes are nicely done and it wasn’t like I was saying… come on already and get back to the game play. I will be definitely watching this game.. but the sad thing is it will probably be a few years before it is available here in the U.S. Kind of reminds me of Aion and the wait for it.
Enjoy your weekend.
