Yesterday I got home from work and downloaded the free trial of World of Warcraft. Besides pausing for beer and smoke breaks I pretty much was glued to the computer for a good couple hours.
So, is Warcraft the end all be all game? I don't think so. I am not used to PC controls (thank god I found the link to hook my 360 controller to the PC) so there are several controls/camera issues which should be fixed soon. As far as character customization I didn't see anything super special. The game looks good though the characters are a bit...cartoony is a word I've seen bandied about and I have to agree. As far as story or plot I have no idea what's going on, who's who, but then again I'm fresh off the truck. The quests, at the level I am are standard step'n'fetch, get me this, get me that, I want, I want quests. You why NPCs just stand around in games? Because they have people to do shit for them. NPCs are digitized managers/shaolin delegators. I also wish there was an icon or something to let people know that you are soloing.
So those are some gripes. On the other hand I like being a stranger in a strange land. I don't know what's going on, who anyone is, the customs and norms, and in some cases I don't know what the hell people are talking about. While gameplay is pretty simple to pick up it's all the other stuff I need to learn and I like it. Exploration and discovery is what I am about and Warcraft has it.
I think I might go onto the Role-Play section of the game and play a Dwarven Hunter/Mountain Man. Antisocial and somewhat deranged, only entering town to sell pelts. We shall see.
Last night I cleaned out my misc quest queue except for a quest to fight a dragon in case someone comes over and wants to see me fight a dra...
