I am in a game funk; well I guess its more like an MMO funk.
The other night I was starring at my computer’s desktop, trying to decide which icon to click and none of the MMO icons appealed to me.Â My thought process was something like:
WoW?Â Nope.Â Other than raid night, I only log into World of Warcraft only long enough to do dailys,and fish a bit.
Lotro? Nope.Â I hit the burnout wall in Lotro; and when log in I have no desire to spend several hours doing things with no advancement.
CoH? Nope.Â City of Heroes was nice to visit last week, but my free time is over.Â Â The the mission maps and combat are fairly repetive and dull when soloing, but group play is great and if I did have a regular set of friends playing with me I would have resubbed for a month.
Beta game? Nope.Â See there is a game I am beta testing; but… ahh never mind.Â Â For full respect for the NDA and the hard working people working on the game, I am not going to say anything other than I don’t feel a strong force pulling me to play.
Then there the game that I believe is causing most of my MMO funk; Champions Online.
Yep a game that is not out yet, is the cause of my lack of MMO motivation.Â Â I love the super hero genre, really enjoyed CoH, played a bit of the Champions PnP game as a kid, and have been interesting in Champions Online from the day it was announced.Â Since that day I have tried to temper my excitment with the fact that is was not going to be out for a very long time.Â Well a long time has passed, the release date is set (july 14th) and in the last week there has been a lot of press about the game.Â All of that has led to my brain shorting out a bit ;).Â Â I simply find little reason to spend any time before Champions playing an MMO, since I know I will most likely be dropping whatever I was playing to play CO.
My options now are to shift my focus on some single player games, or somehow acquire a champions online beta key.Â Â Since I have little influence on how Cryptic selects their beta players I am gald the latest Fallout 3 DLC was released this week, and that I finally installed Kings Bounty.Â At least this way if a CO beta key does not appear in my email box, I will at least have something to keep me busy.
