A few weeks ago I posted some thoughts on Out of the Gate MMOs where the super ego goal with gaming giants seem to be, get as many sales as fast as you can before you wring the title dry and take a paring knife to the team that created that title.
What role do we play in that mindset as gamers? We seem to have evolved into an ADD gamer society where SQUIRREL! we're always looking to see what's next? We take morsels of undeveloped, still in beta MMOs and say, "This is the one I've been waiting for! Did you SEE this? I will rule your face with my velociraptor claw hand and double squid bow with magical arrows!"
We just know that this will be the game that finally keeps us playing longer than the 6 month introductory offer where we stay up 24/7 the first week of release and NEVER reach end game after we level 70 in 2 weeks because we called into work and said we're in rehab yet again and it should last oh about (checks with guild roster) another 4 days going into a weekend.
And then it happens, that honeymoon is over melancholy feeling when we walk around in our slick suit, that we achieved first by the way, with no one to duel because of the new release of Gods of Utopia your guild mates have been talking so much about and moved on to. You had thought of getting that one but in two more weeks will be the release of the new title you have really been waiting for, Samurai Guy. Did you see that sick armor? And dude the pvp is off the hook!! SQUIRREL!
On to the Next
