It may not be the case for all, but my gaming life has been pretty stagnant lately.
Let's see, the last game I bought was Age of Conan. I've been wanting SOMETHING to dethrone World of Warcraft forever. Sadly, nothing has really come close in matching that feeling I had in my first year or so of playing WoW. Many games have come and gone that had potential but never fully realized it. I think Age of Conan will be another one of those tragedies. Who knows, I may have just been turned off by the rocky launch that AoC endured. I do know that AoC has potential, and if I see some updates or enhancements to fix the problems in that game I might even consider going back.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a WoW hater. I was a loyal player for near three years. While many argue that WoW is oversimplified and is the "every-man's" MMO, there's really no denying the fact that it is a solid game. The truth is, I love WoW (maybe a bit less after The Burning Crusade). But I'm sick of it. It's old. We're coming up on the 4 year anniversary of this juggernaut and STILL not one game has captured the essence that keeps players coming back for more that WoW possesses.
I want a game like WoW....that isn't WoW. I've lost count of how many times I've renewed my subscription only to play for a month and just get bored of it.
That's not my point, though. I've been bored in terms of games.
In fact, the only reason I renewed my WoW subscription is to kill time until the 10th of June. That's when Dragonball Z: Burst Limit is released. I'm a huge Dragonball Z fan, and it's a shame I'll only be able to give it my full attention for only a day or so, until Metal Gear Solid 4 comes out on the 12th.
So...I just got done ranting about how I have too much time on my hands and need games to play.
In near a week I'll have too little time to do anything else.
Been really keeping my eye on this neat little gadget. Don't know if you guys have heard of it, but it's called the iPhone. It's pretty low key, so don't feel bad if you don't know what I'm talking about.
Only thing...the monthly fee would really leave quite the sting when it meets with my extremely limited income. The minimum is $60 a month, which may seem like chump change to some of you guys that make more than $6.15 an hour working at Gamestop.
But yeah, do you guys know anything about the iPhone. Any advice? Any experiences?
Supposedly Steve Jobs is going to unveil the *EDIT*2nd*EDIT* generation of iPhone on June 9th...just in time for this potential buyer to sink his teeth into a $500 cell phone.
My name is Robbie Chance. I make videos. Some of you have seen one of my videos.
Featured in Geoff Mendicino's hit show, The Gameboys, was my Sonic the Hedgehog skit.
It was fun to make, and I'm extremely pleased you guys enjoyed it. It's in the same vein as Mega64, and the fact that people compared me to them means a lot. I draw a lot of my inspiration from their style of humor, and I'm ecstatic to have one of my videos mentioned in the same sentence.
Ass-kissing and fanboy wistfulness aside, I look forward to keeping all of you guys updated on my video projects and my work on Freezecracker.com, as well as some of my opinions on the industry's happenings.
Also, do you guys like podcasts? I thought so. If you guys are finding yourself wanting to listen to yet another podcast, check out Freezecracker.com's podcast. I am in charge of it, and I'm always open to new suggestions and new fans. You can find it on itunes under "The Freezecracker Podcast", or you can click the link at the bottom of my post.
I look forward to getting to know the Dtoid community, see you guys later!
