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

littlemiss what games do you play on live?
On the topic of WoW...I hated paying monthly to play the game, but it is a good game!

Yeah, annoying isn't it. I hate having 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

Erm, well the game i play alot online mulitplayer wise is Left for Dead 1 and 2!
I probably dont play enough games for it to be worth it, but i like it being there.

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.

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 .

Does this mean the 3 of us will be on WoW each evening next week?

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
