    Secret World Temptations

    Hmmn….this is tempting.  If I re-sub to Age of Conan, there is a promotion running that offers:

    • 3-month sub: Beta access to The Secret World
    • 6-month sub: Beta access + in-game helmet that boosts experience gain by 10%
    • 12-month sub: Beta access + helmet + a free copy of Conan expansion Rise of the Godslayer

    I would really, really like to be able to play in the beta of The Secret World.  But I’ve been thinking about resubbing to EVE, as well. What is a (poor) girl to do?  I’d play Dragon Age if I could wrest the game from P’s hands, but I would probably have to kill him and stick him underneath the floorboards in order to be able to have a turn.

    Decisions, decisions…murder, going back to my Tempest of Set, or venturing back into New Eden.  Hmmmnnn….


    Oh, my –  look what I just found in my spam folder:

    Your level 41 , Dravven, awaits your return to Age of Conan!

    Now you can play Age of Conan again for 14 days completely FREE of charge! This offer does not require any purchase as long as you act before November 27th, 2009. There are also some amazing rewards available to you if you purchase game time now!

    I frickin’ love two-weeks-of-free-play offers.

    Fallen Earth


    I’ve been thinking about trying Fallen Earth. I’m playing Warcraft very casually, but I’ve seen all of the content so many times that I simply cannot do it again, or at least spend a lot of time doing the same quests. I’m still playing Aion, and without the pressure to level it’s much better, but I know the wall is there and quite honestly that bothers me. And other MMOs? Well…

    Warhammer is a consideration. I’ve always had a ton of fun there. I just wish that I could convince friends and family to give it a try.  :(

    EVE Online is another option…I may re-sub, but if I don’t do any PvP I’m kind of faced with mining and missions and ….well, meh.

    If the new expansion was live for Age of Conan, I’d definitely re-sub. I think it sounds awesome.

    No release date on Star Trek yet. If it’s reasonably soon, then that’s the decision made right there.  :)

    LotRO calls, but each time I’ve played it I’ve been left rather cold.

    Darkfall? No way…I’m too much of a weenie. Kill me and take all my toys away and I’m likely to cry like a little girl.

    Hmmnn…..anyway, Fallen Earth. I like the idea of sandbox-type games, as long as you don’t find yourself wandering aimlessly for ages without being able to find anything to do – which I understand is an issue with Fallen Earth. I don’t need my hand held, but if I somehow manage to miss all the content, I’m not going to sub. But it would be nice to have a change from fantasy-based games.

    Decisions, decisions.  :D
