It’s been a fairly quiet summer for MMO updates.
Which is why LotRO’s considerable Isengard expansion, DDO’s Update 11 with new Artificer class, and City of Heroes’ freemium Issue 21, have all decided to launch now, within a week or so of one another. Because they’re all trying to kill me with MMO overload after several months of deprivation, clearly.
Living with current MMO release schedules is like existing alone on a deserted island which is visited once a year by five different carnivals, all at the same time, for one week.
I remember the release season of 2009, when 5 or 6 MMOs launched simultaneously and we were overwhelmed with what to play. Compared to that, this summer has been fairly uneventful. Here is to hoping we get some new titles shortly.
Captcha word: Xesturgy.
That’s a lot of carnival “strange” there – go get some!
Talking of carnies… can’t wait for CoX to go freemium :D
