So I got the email many of you I’m sure have gotten as well, that The Secret War (TM?) has begun. And gosh, while we got your registration for the Beta, you know we can’t guarantee anything, but hey, if you sign up for this new phase of the process, including linking us on Facebook, you could play our many games and maybe earn yourself Guaranteed Beta Access (TM?)!
So now I’m trying to decide if its worth it or not. As time has gone on, I have been less and less impressed withe what (little) I’ve seen from TSW releases. Partner that with the problems that faced Age of Conan (including some questionable design decisions) and I’m both more and less anxious to follow the game. More because I want to see if Funcom has improved their proverbial “game” any (pun intended, and I think they may have) and less because I’m just not really into using Facebook for games. I know its like, a billion dollar industry now, but…I think the games are hideous and they bore me greatly. So there is that stigma to overcome as well.
Anyway, if any of you decide to sign up and give a run, let me know. I’m interested to see how it works and I’m at least open to the idea. But I’m also a little irked at the suggestion that my beta access sign up is worth less because I’ve been following the game longer. But hey, that’s apparently a common trend in the MMO industry right now.
