I just read that there is now a free trial for Fallen Earth, and I’m quite excited about trying it. It wasn’t one of the games that I was panting to purchase, and I probably won’t continue to pay a subscription, but I’m really looking forward to trying it. It’s nice to have a change from fantasy MMOs, and most of the reviews I read seemed very positive.
I quite like the post I read comparing Fallen Earth to an Old West MMO. I don’t remember who’s blog it was, there are a lot of good gaming blogs that I read on a regular basis but I tend to lurk rather than post. I’m a lurker, I’m shy. :D Anyway, although I’ve forgotten most of the points the original poster made, I do really like the comparison: both environments are generally lawless environments, where people scrabble a living from dust and rusty scraps using hard work and ingenuity.
Ok, I got off my figurative ass and googled for it: Is Fallen Eart Our Answer to a Wild West MMO? I think it might be…horses, guns and all. And I, too, quite like the idea of being a desperado.
