So... I've been extremely engrossed in SWG, my first highly graphical MMORPG (I've played in MUSHs and MUDs in college) and thoroughly enjoying it. So much so that I've started to look at other games that I might be interested in and two have caught my attention. URU, the next in the MYST line, and Middle Earth Online, where hopefully, I can play a hobbit! Anyone else interested in either of these two? I've been trying for the past couple of months to get in on the URU beta and no such luck (sigh!). I loved the MYST games (Riven being my personal favorite, since I thought the plot of the story was so well interwoven with the puzzles) and the graphics look fantastic for URU. MEO is far from the beta stage, but it looks interesting and, well, I like hobbits. The only problem I have with MEO is the fact that a user can have multiple avatars on a single server. I really like the way SWG is structured that you can't have multiple avatars per server (the FS character being the exception). I guess it's an unfair advantage for powergamers: you can create many characters whose sole purpose is to buff one. Hmm. Anyway, just wanted to put a shout out for these two new games and wondering if other TOGers will join me in URU when it comes out at the end of this year.
