The Secret World

Any BuFers playing it? I picked it up this past weekend, and it's pretty amusing thus far. The cutscenes get a little old, but are at least good enough to be nice to watch (and are skippable). Not like many MMOs; I'd say it has quite a bit in common with Guild Wars, just.. better.

Yeah, I don't know about that. Guild Wars is purely a PvP experience. If you went into it expecting a PvE experience then you went in with the wrong mindset.

It doesn't matter if you like music. It doesn't matter if you like demolitions. It doesn't matter if you like games. Doesn't matter if you like sports or swearing or drugs or even pirating. This forum has what you need.

It is also going to fail hard unless it adopts a free to play option as well.

People doubted me when I said Old Republic would go free to play within a year, and now I bet they are eating their own words.

The MMO market is saturated and The Secret World will not last long if it doesn't offer something unique for that price point.

Have you seen the game at all? It is CRAZY unique. Very seriously, I have never seen anything else quite like it. Will it be enough to justify $15/mo? Who knows, but it is certainly interesting as hell.

Go **** yourself."
