Ok, so im sure some of you have heard of the MMORPG Age of Conan (Known here on as AoC). If you haven’t then you really should look into it. The game looks incredible, and certainly worth checking out. My only complaint is, unlike on other MMORPGs AoC does not offer a free trial from their website.

This sort of bugs me. Why? Because I desperately want to play this, but I have heard the controls are clumbsy and things that the game could be improved on in various areas. Some people however dont know what they are talking about, however I don’t want to purchase this game and end up finding out…yea, ok…everyones right…it kind of sucks.

Also, the fact that they dont have a trial on their website available like most games….kinda sends up a red flag that the game sorta sucks….and that they kinda sorta know it sucks too.

If however the game isn’t as bad as I have heard…I will happily buy and subscribe to the game. As it is though, I am happy with Lord of the Rings Online, and at least I know that doesnt suck….so, until I can see if AoC sucks, im just going to play it safe and stick to LotRO………..But…….

PLEASE put out a freakin AoC trial!

    This game is definitely worth purchasing and trying out for the free month. Don’t make a decision based on what you hear…. the controls are actually smoother and more exciting in AOC than they are in WAR. The end game is the only downside of AOC…and they are working on that.

    Otherwise, you’d be missing out on a big chunk of MMO culture by not leveling a character 1-20 in AOC … that part alone is worth it. It has one of the best 1-20 game experiences I’ve ever been a part of. I’ve only made it to 60, and am mostly playing WAR, but this game has it’s reasons to bring me back, even if part time.

    ok, now i feel like an idiot, but I am going to ask this anyway….WAR? What’s this?

    OH! After viewing your Blog, im assuming WAR is Warhammer? See, i’ve seen THAT game in action, and not really my cup of tea. While it looks nice and has a nice feel, it just doesnt have enough of a story to “Drag” me in and immerse me into this epic fantasy world….And that’s what keeps me hooked on a game. It’s like a good movie or book….you want to keep going til this incredible story had reached it’s epic conclusion.

    I get this feeling with Lord of the Rings Online, as well as the first Guildwars(Unfortunately the ‘Expansions’ just didn’t have the same charm as the first one.
