Welp, it’s time to hit the ole dusty road. Foton, the Guild Wars character, needs a vacation.
Just a change of scenery. A summer project, as it were.
Maybe a few weeks carousing in Booty Bay. I do miss stumbling home from the local tavern to my shack high above the bay. Obviously I’d need some drinking money … goblin snort don’t come cheap. But, a few hours in Blackrock each day for a night of debauchery in Boot-ay seems a small price to pay.
One of my drinking buddies is trying to sell a romp in Camelot. Of course, I explained that I wouldn’t be “romping” anywhere, thankyouverymuch, but a few weeks fighting the good fight for Albion, Midgard or whateverthehell that last one was wouldn’t kill me. Actually, fuck the last one, I didn’t hit max level in that realm so would be Albion or Midgard. Not to mention all the expansions I don’t have and if memory serves, my toon is dirt poor. And probably has shit equipment by today’s standards.
Norrath is never out of the question. I learned long ago, my friends, Norrath is never out of the question. The new and improved Norrath, that is. I have far too much pride to log into EverQuest as a level 65 that’s 239,058 expansions behind the 14 people that still play. Heh, thank god for EverQuest 2 or I might have to swallow that pride.
Usually, when I’m feeling overworked and under-entertained by the current MMOG offerings, there’s a beta on the horizon that I (foolishly) hope to get in. WHERE’S THE DAMN BETAS? I mean the big boy betas … I’m not a niche player. I’m mainstream.
I realize that Foton might raise a red flag on a beta invite (if Foton tells the truth on the NDA app), but Whiteblo, the late 20s, employed, mild-mannered American with a long resume of gaming characters and subscriptions could squeak through.
God Bless Internet Anonymity!
And for the record, if I did squeak into a beta, I’d keep my fool mouth shut on the blog, especially if I hated the game. I would remain UNCHARACTERISTICALLY silent. *nudge nudge* Fair is fair, their house, their rules.
Once I’m paying the bills, then I can open the poison pen; when I’m a guest, I’m silent as the grave.
Anyhoo, I’ll probably wander over to Azeroth for a few weeks. Check out the Battlegrounds that I’ve heard one good thing about.
Two million boxes out the door, that means it HAS to be good.
