  1. […] I have a new page, available through the sidebar to the right. […]

  2. I haven’t played any MMOs, but I have been gaming online for a. Still, when I’m playing some form of RPG, it’s traditionally been i solo act. I’ve played Diablo and Baldur’s Gate online in conjunction with friends, but that was behind I’d completed the game on my own. I guess you could say I play primarily for ones story, and it’s hard to completely appreciate the story if you’re grouped with a little bit of other people who have agendas all of their own. The Old Republic have to be my first foray towards the MMOs, not because the genre attracts me but rather I want to see the next chapters on the go series that sucked me in and wasn’t brought to a pleasant conclusion.
