Having played the beta - apparently the characters I created are still hanging around online because I received and email offering for me to have a free weekend 16th to 19th April - next weekend. Obviously a way of tempting me back. Apparently I also registered for the console beta because I got an email about that yesterday. Back in the beta (I know, beta isn't the finished article) I got quite frustrated but maybe I was trying to do everything too quickly. Wandering into something as lvl 5 and getting slaughtered by 2 or 3 lvl 7 creatures attacking me all at once was irritating. I also balanced out how much enjoyment I got from the beta to the monthly cost and how it would affect my other games. So here I am, thinking about taking the leap now I don't need to pay the monthly fee. While I am a PC gamer at heart, several of the other guys and girls at Grownups Gaming are thinking about the console version so I may end up with that. For those of you who have played - an honest opinion if you please. What's it been like playing it ? Learning curve, quests ? Anything. Cheers.
