Tough times for MMO fans

by manylaughs on June 24, 2013

Let’s face it. So far this has been a sucky year for MMOs. You’ve probably burned through most of the Guild Wars 2 content and gotten bored with that game, so you’re likely fishing around for something new. Sadly, what’s been released so far hasn’t exactly set the MMO world on fire:  Defiance was disappointing and Neverwinter… well, it was good for about a month, wasn’t it?

In addition to a couple of meh MMO releases, Elder Scrolls Online was postponed until next year and who the fuck knows what’s happening with Blade and Soul? Yeps, sucky times if you’re an MMO fan. In fact, once you clear away the probable dreck of F2P and just plain crap MMO, you’re left with hoping WildStar comes out this year and that Square Enix has improved Final Fantasy XIV.

You can only hope FFXIV: A Realm Reborn will be decent. You know you’ll play it, too, won’t you? After all, you’re a gamer and you’re always hoping the next game will be the one that fills you with a renewed sense of excited.

And what the hey. If that’s a bust, there’s always WildStar or maybe Blade and Soul.

Keep on hoping, because, right now, things are looking a little bleak.

But doesn’t Guild Wars 2 have updates all the time? I thought they gave new content … OK, I haven’t played in months but it should give a little more content if you aren’t bored with the game.
Guess I should go back to it … do you still play sometimes?

Hi, zeruul.

Updates are such a subjective thing.

GW2 has had regular updates and live events, which is cool, but I’d say that the updates over the last 6 months have been mostly meh. With the possible exception of Super Fun Box, which falls into a whole ‘nother category, the updates have either had very little content or have been uninteresting.

I suspect the GW2 team might be off working on an expansion.
