Even with a bounty of games to play, right now I feel as though I’m in a holding pattern, playing a waiting game.
I’m waiting for WildStar to announce a release date and get here already.
I’m waiting for Lord of the Rings Online to come out with Update 13.
I’m waiting for The Secret World to drop in new missions and open up Tokyo.
I’m waiting for Guild Wars 2 to get done with the Scarlet Briar storyline and do something else for a while.
2014 may be shaping up to be a significant year in terms of releases, but so far it’s been a wasteland. We haven’t had anything significant since SWTOR’s spacefighter expansion in December — and it’s been a long, long winter. Studios going on vacation for a few weeks there definitely slowed the works down, and nobody seems too eager to put anything around the April launch window for Elder Scrolls Online. I think ESO is really going to benefit from so much quiet before it, because I can’t be the only MMO gamer who is champing at the bit for something new.
I guess I just want something to happen, already.
