Syp’s August MMO goals and game update

Every month or so I want to do a quick post here to bring anyone who cares up to speed on what I’m playing, what I’m not, and what goals I’m going for.

What I’m playing

  • SWTOR: Right now this is the game that I am the most involved in, probably because I feel compelled to get the bounty hunter storyline done before the 12x thing vanishes in October. Apart from getting her to 60 and gearing her up and her companions, I would love to max out companion affection on both my BH and Agent before the fall expansion. So lots of gift grinding right now.
  • WildStar: Still making my way through Malgrave. Trying to focus on just playing the Engineer until I get to 50 and wrap up some of these endgame zones. Might consider playing another alt once I’m done with that.
  • Project Gorgon: Right now, just exploring and taking notes. When the game comes out with dwarves, I will reroll as one, so there’s not a huge rush to level up skills so much as simply explore and learn.
  • Marvel Heroes: I’m focusing on a single hero at a time to get him or her up to 60. With Doom done, I’m back to Ant-Man (and here’s hoping that today’s MM will really help, because I’m falling out of love with this character). I do want to get more and better summoning gear for Doom, but that’s just a side project.

What I’m not playing but am thinking about

  • The Secret World: Waiting on an update with new soloable story content, so that might be a while. I might go back from time to time to finish up the Orochi Tower and see the floors I missed previously.
  • Guild Wars 2: I’ve been meaning to uninstall but can’t quite do it. Yet. However, I simply don’t see going back to this game, even when the expansion hits.
  • RIFT: New calling looks… neat, I guess. Wouldn’t mind trying it out. Still letting RIFT go fallow so that any eventual return will be more exciting than not. I think if I came back I would probably do 100% instant adventures and dungeons.
  • World of Warcraft: Always keeping this game in the corner of my vision. No justifying another sub on top of WildStar/SWTOR right now, tho.
  • Trove: I love the idea and concepts for this game, but whenever I have free time I can’t convince myself to play this over something else. Maybe one day.

    SWTOR worth getting back into? Had a F2P account a long time ago, but it never really got me hooked.

    I’m in the same boat with GW2 – it is a good game, but I can’t put my finger on why I don’t feel the need to play, and I’m not even at cap. I end up on the fence, then jump into Marvel Heroes instead…

    Out of curiosity, what do you feel it is about Ant Man that has you falling out of love with him?

    Llokki — Just can’t find a fun rotation with him. That’s usually a tipping point between liking and not liking a character for me.
