Hey y’all, Vanguard is out! *crickets*

I know we briefly mentioned Vanguard: Saga of Heroes in our rundown of games coming out this week, but when I saw the alert in my inbox today I was suddenly reminded that this game actually is coming out and that I hardly knew about it.

Now, I don’t want to brag or anything, but I’m pretty connected with the gaming world — going to events and previews and such — and the amount of press and coverage SOE has been giving Vanguard has been piss poor at best. Sure we saw it at CES, but beyond that, there hasn’t really been much action as far as a Vanguard push from Sony — you see, when most high-profile games are at or near launch, there’s usually a big to do about it from the publisher.

So, what gives? Is this thing such a complete bomb that Sony just wants to push it out and forget it ever happened? Has anyone here tried it yet? If so, what are your impressions? Wasn’t this game supposed to be the ultimate WoW killer?
