We spent yesterday debating the merits of playing EQOA ($60 monthly for the four accounts – ouch), WoW (too depressing to really consider), a plethora of free-to-play games that we ultimately deemed either terrible or “might as well play WoW,” random console games we weren’t in the mood for, or re-subscribing to Netflix in a vain attempt to avoid spending the next few months staring at the wall out of boredom.
You see, we spent last night trying to enjoy a few SWTOR warzones on our lowbie Commando/Sage combo, and after the second game we sat in queue for nearly 30 minutes before finally giving up and logging off. This was smack in the middle of prime time, mind you.
After we were unable to come to any sort of choice regarding our gaming future, TG put some anime on Hulu, and I played The Sims 2 while listening to an audiobook. Oh, and I did try puttering around on Neopets too for a while. Now that’s bored.
Tonight we’ll be playing some lowbie PvE with our friends on our server. Maybe that will be a nice change of pace. I’ll have to try to remember to take screenshots.
But this distraction doesn’t change the fact that we’re coming to a point of forced decision; our billing cycle for SWTOR will be up again soon. Do we subscribe another month? The fact that we’re asking this obviously means the answer should be no, but what do we do instead if we cancel?
