Plan me not, Bank HolidayMay 4, 2010 at 3:35 pm | Posted in General | 2 Comments
Tags: fallen earth, not good things happening
It was a Bank Holiday weekend in dear old Blighty this weekend, so of course it was a perfect time for rain, traffic jams on the Motorways, a bit more rain, visiting relatives and friends, getting those big nasty chores done, and of course, even more rain.
As well as all that, I had some semi-sort-of-possibly-might-be-plans-if-you-squint-at-them-funny plans for some time with a number of different games, but then the whole Icarus thing broke. I’ll let Ysharros tell you about it, if you didn’t catch it at the time.
I’m not very good at expressing sympathy at the best of times, and quite frankly I’m worse in print. I’ll just say good luck to Icarus’ ex-employees, and that way I can stay away from any duck-billed platitudes.
But the upshot is that my plans to take Wol through to the end of the extended tutorial suddenly turned into going all the way through the Midway starter quests, getting to level 5, and starting the quests in Odenville.
Part of it was that I was enjoying Fallen Earth so much that I didn’t want to fire up anything else. The other part was hearing that Fallen Earth was dead, then hearing it wasn’t, made me want to hold on to it and not let go.
I suppose that’s one of the reasons why I hate making plans. Something always comes up…
