In between my adventures as a clumsy siren in Borderlands 2, I have also been dosing myself with shots of MMORPG through Guild Wars 2. I have been loving every minute of it. A mini review for those who populate the crevices on the edge of civilisation: Guild Wars 2 a nice alternative to World of Warcraft. Graphics are nice. Classes are interesting. You can pick up the storyline when you want, level capping makes every area a good challenge, and people are ridiculously cooperative. It is a game that I can pick up and grind for about 30 minutes and be on my away to another level. (I’m on level 25. Yes, this demonstrates that I have been busy).
But more importantly, this is the first time that I have actually played an MMORPG with other people.
It seems in my life as a gaming lady, I constantly have to keep apologising for all of the games that I have missed out on while I was doing other interesting things like … finishing a university degree, or … learning how to braid my hair. So it is refreshing when I say with all of the pride in my heart:
I make no apologies for not playing the first Borderlands. Not. A. Single. Apology.
In the last week, I believe that everything that I have touched has turned to gold. Or at least rhodium-plated silver.
For the last 3-4 months, my Nintendo 3DS has been gathering dust, and this has been largely intentional.
I have discovered there is such a thing as “reading furiously”.
