    WoW Bargin@Game

    I've just popped down the bank and on the way from teh car park walked past the Preston branch of Game. Now, I've been giving quite some thought as to dipping my toes in the WoW environment, especially since Shaun showed me it at his house last month.
    In Game they had teh WoW Battlechest marked up for £19.99, which includes the WoW install, the Burning Crusade expansion pack and 2 stategy guides. 'Not a bad price' I thought, so took them to the checkout. It turns out they are currently in their sale. For £9.99. I'm now a very happy chappy

    I'd quite like to play WoW, but i find the fact you have to pay to play it online a bit off putting, especially as i pay for XBOX live

    Yeah, annoying isn't it. I hate having to pay to play online.

    Oh wait, I have a PS3 - I don't have to pay to play online

    WoW never held my attention for that long, i hate the fact that theres limited player numbers per server and that it costs (If memory serves) to copy a character onto another server.

    EVE on the other hand keeps me intrested and i get a genuine feeling of acomplishment when my bounty prizes come in and my salvaged goods fetch a good price. Plus the EVE universe is huge and everyone plays in 1 universe

    I love the Fallout series, but have recently got into Borderlands (not sure if it's PS3 only though, so sorry if it is) - I was a level 6 last night, but I invited my level 33 brother into my game, and within half an hour I was a level 12. I believe that's a feature in WoW where others can help you level up, and it is definately one of the better features in Borderlands - just wish Fallout had something along the same lines.

    Join usssssss!

    Do find out what server your friends are playing on before you sign up though. I'd suggest an EduGeek clan but then people would be spread everywhere .

    In all honesty, I prefer "lord of the rings online" As it's free to play and has a proper storyline to follow, whereas "World Of Warcraft" has nothing to it. You can download and install the game straight to your computer without having to go out and purchasing anything. I don't play it as much anymore because of Xbox/ps3, but if i had people to play it with, id get back into it.

    Just giving my opinion

    I find the storyline quite good in WoW tbh. Admittedly you don't have to follow it but it is there if you want to

    Make it four!

    I never liked the idea of paying monthly for a game, but once I started I got hooked, dread to think how much money I have spent in the last 4/5 years.
