Hey, boys and girls.
What I'm about to tell you may totally repulse you (girls annoyed by their boyfriends, thus, hating that I'm playing it too); make you go "huzzah!" (boys liking that their friend is now playing it too); or nothing at all.
I'm playing World of Warcraft.
Give it a minute, let it sink in.
I was asked to try it out months ago but I kept putting it off. I think deep down I was conditioned to keep the amount of new FPS, RPG games I play to a minimum because I always get sick in the middle of game play. When I started Grand Theft Auto in Perth, I had a cold sweat and went dizzy and puke-ish. Same thing with the demo for Call of Duty. Not exactly a positive reward for playing them.
But now I've stepped in to the realm of Khaz' goroth (a realm in WoW) and I kind of like it. It's fun when you're playing with someone else, just don't do that with a trial account because half the time you don't know if your partner can actually read your messages, unless you verify that with them. Mine didn't respond when I asked if he/she could read my messages. Good healer, though.
My 10 day trial is going to end soon. Should I purchase an account? I may not even have time to play now. Why can't it be a one-off purchase, like Starcraft??!
Group quest, anyone?
(Wtf is a raid party? What do you raid?)
