I know nothing about Elder Scrolls Online, but if it plays in real time like the previous entries and offers a world half as fun to explore as Skyrim I am in. I have yet to have become cynical about Skyrim, it still draws me back on occasion. It didn’t get old the same way Oblivion did for me. To enjoy these adventures with real people sounds like a good time. Ill be one of those geeks on the RP server.
Keeping an eye on Dragon’s Dogma as well. Sure, looks boring right? On inspection it seems quite deep. It has a lot of the Western RPG sensibilities, but its more than that. There are a lot of well thought out game play ideas, and a surprising amount of detail. I don’t suspect the story will touch the Witcher, but the game itself looks like a ton of fun. I also wonder what Dragon Age III is going to do. I feel in my element with this stuff.
Also, Welcome to mr. @pepperized . I look forward to hearing more of your stories. I never played R-Type, but I did have a brutal battle with Ikaruga. It won in the end, but I feel like that game taught me many valuable lessons. It was my sensei in developing a mind-game meld where I was in the game …. but not OF the game. I removed the shackles of gameplay mechanics, and there I saw a spontaneous synchronization. It was poetry my friend. I had similar experiences with Contra 3&4 In those instances I was victorious however. Ikaruga still has much to teach me.
