Picking the Right MMO: Thoughts on SWTOR

Picking the right MMO can be a bit tricky. You have to weigh in every factor to figure out which MMO is for you. Some based it on the community while others enjoy playing solo. For any game, MMO or not, I believe the main ingredient is the story. Without a good story, a game can fall flat. Of course it also needs to be fun but fun is measured by personal preference. For some, the story of a game matters not if the player enjoys simply shooting the bad guy, for example.

In a regular game, playing to just shoot each other might be enough but when you have to pay a monthly fee for a game, you want more and you should have it.

My MMO journey started with Everquest II, which [...]

Thirty Days of Video Games: Day Five – Who Would You Be?

First character that came to mind was the female lead in Dragon Age: Origins. After some thought however, Gray Wardens only live for another thirty years after drinking the blood of dark spawn, so that’s a bit of a turn off.

I haven’t played that much of Dragon Age 2 to say Lady Hawke but from what I’ve played so far, I wouldn’t mind. She is a strong character who is looking out for her family and friends.

I wouldn’t mind being female Shepard since she simply kicks ass and came back from the dead to kick more ass. It’s during a time where space travel is the norm and technology is on the rise.

Thought about Lara Croft, [...]
