Delays, windows, hype, and cake.

Warhammer Online has been delayed, again. Not a huge shock really, especially considering the whole ‘we are not making DAoC 2… ok fine we are’ design change, something I fully support. Hopefully at some point ‘soon’ anyone who buys a pre-order will get access to beta; that would be a nice summer diversion.

I was going to say this opens a nice window to return to LoTRO, but their expansion is also set to release in the fall. Depending on how long WoW remains entertaining, perhaps that LoTRO window will happen anyway. And of course there is that return to EVE that will inevitable happen (and the pull grows stronger daily).

And oddly enough, my remote interest in Age of Conan is rising. Hopefully they have an open beta soon, so I can go in and see what it’s all about. Somehow all the hype and pre-release info about that game has done nothing to spark my interest, and I’m not sure if that means I really don’t care or I’m just too focused on WAR and whatever game I’m currently playing.

Oh and that whole ‘cake is a lie’ thing is still out there…

    I tried LOTRO a couple weeks ago, when I noticed it was $19.99 to buy, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I was enjoying that more than the WAR beta, which I wouldn’t have predicited.

    If you’ve already given LOTRO a try, then yeah, makes sense to wait until the expansion to return. I think it’ll keep me busy for quite a while, though, since it’s all new to me. I’m wondering if I’ll have to choose between WAR and Moria next fall.

    And yeah, I have Portal on my short list. I have a birthday coming up, I think that’s going to be my gift to myself :)

    Want to share that WAR beta account? :)

    Yea I got to 35ish in LoTRO before, had a really great time at launch. Some technical issues caused me to leave. With new hardware, time is really the only thing limiting the return. 67 in WoW right now, and if Arena sucks as much as people have been saying it does, I don’t know if I’m not going to jump from WoW to LoTRO at some point soon-ish.

  4. Eve waits patiently….

    i might be mistaken, but I *thought* that the latest newsletter this afternoon said that a collector’s edition could be pre-purchased (online, brick & mortar; pick your poison) and would include a free beta key and a couple of free unique in-game items that vary depending on which retailer you bought it from.
