A Guild Wars 2 First Impression November 19, 2012Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, Guild Wars 2.
Guild Wars 2 had a free trial this past weekend. My friend Gaff, who has been playing it, sent me a code for the trial. Apparently you had to get a code from a current player to be a worthwhile prospect, which isn’t a bad theory. If you know somebody who is already playing, you are probably more likely to want to keep playing after the trial is up.
So I spent Wednesday night patching while I slept and then patched some more after that because ANet had an event planned and since I was being handed a full version of the game for the weekend, it was theoretically possible I might get to it.
I did not.
I will point out that if you look at my Raptr profile, it will tell you I have spent 15 hours playing Guild Wars 2.
I did not spend 15 hours playing Guild Wars 2.
More about that after the cut, as this gets long and has pictures and the usual.
A SWTOR F2P First Impression November 19, 2012Posted by Wilhelm Arcturus in entertainment, Star Wars: The Old Republic.
One of my friends who played Star Wars: The Old Republic… until he ran out of content and unsubscribed… news flash, I know… decided to to check it out now that it has gone free to play. He left me a few messages on IM about the attempt.
so i logged into swtor. it is ridiculous
you have to buy hotbars. you get one. you get 2 character slots, and i cannot find anywhere to purchase additional ones
past that i said the hell with this and logged out. the other highlight–you have to buy the ability to toggle whether your head gear displays or not
I thought they had canned the single hotbar thing? Didn’t that cause a huge blow up on the forums?
And it sounds like they haven’t gotten the store quite worked out yet.
So much for first impressions.
