Since all the other blogs about seen to be hung up on War beta shut down and the merits of Gods and Heros going under I though I steer clear of that .. just for the sake of not jumping on the band wagon.
However I’m feeling a little unfocused today, mainly as its day 2 of my journey towards giving up smoking. So i thought i would just ramble about a new passion I have found in the mmo world. No its not EQ II or Wow or any of the myriad of wow clones.
I love pvp and have done since my early days back in eq 1. However it was not until Daoc and Guildwars came out that I really got hooked. Daoc was great but lost it novelty after a year or so of pvp, so i turned to Guildwars for the pvp areans and had a blast. Even got to play a few rounds in the 24 vs 24 areanas with a few of the players from the top ranked guilds. However over time the novelty wore off, not as it was bad pvp but I could never find a good enough but casual pvp focussed guild.
A year later along comes a new pvp mmo and I’m hooked, Fury has landed on my desk and damn is it not a fun game. Deep as well if you like to just play around with builds, which incidently is almost as fun as playing the game.
If you have not tried it, keep an eye open for beta open play however it is getting very close to launch so they might not be any open. It is a great pvp game ala 2142 with swords and spells. No monthly subsciption if you dont want to, however it is there ala Hellgate if you want a little extra bag room, guild halls etc
Anyway I lost track of where i was going with this, damn nicotine withdrawls, anyway have fun and if you try Fury keep an eye out for Pixey Styx .. you will probably find me running the other way screaming like a girl ….
