Well, I never thought it’d happen, but I somehow let Chad talk me into trying a new MMO. Rift. It’s been getting good reviews, most saying it’s the first real competitor with WoW. I quite enjoyed Aion for the short time we played it, but it had its issues. None-the-less we’ll see how long we play this one for. I was certain I was done with MMOs altogether.
It’s pretty fun so far, and the graphics are beautiful. While I can run it comfortable at Ultra, makes me realize I should probably start thinking about an upgrade or new PC soon. This computer is almost 5 years old now, with a few upgrades keeping it alive. I rarely game on PC anymore, so it’s not a priority, but even in just every day use it’s starting to show its age.
It is nice having an MMO to play again though. I don’t have much of a social life for it to interfere with. I still plan on trying to meet people, but that can only fill up so much of the day. And it’s a great way for Chad and I to spend some time together. Although the 3 hour time difference between Halifax and Edmonton makes it hard to schedule a decent chunk of time to play together. But we played tonight and it was good fun. One of the guys at work plays too!
