So we all know Guild Wars 2 is coming but did you know about The Secret World?

Tried the beta today and it's better than I expected. It has some problems like your character just stares vacantly when people talk to you and the jumping animation is pretty terrible BUT the combat is actually pretty fun (I was shocked) and the story is awesome.

It's kind of cool in just how different the environments look to your standard MMO and how using a shotgun in an MMO feels powerful but not overpowered!

Mention if you'll be playing!

[Roll on Huldra if you are!]

Tried it out a bit on the buddy pass and celebration weekend on Huldra, but didn't see you guys online.

Upsides for me:

- good atmosphere
- interesting stories
- skill wheel seems to offer lots of customization
- Dragon 'initiation' Wink

Downsides:

- some puzzles are somewhat generic and not tied in to lore (or common folklore); lost opportunity there, I feel.
- too much purple prose for me; NPCs all seem to be literature majors
- combat is same-y
- monthly sub (I'm cheap)
- not a particularly social game, given the verbose NPCs and puzzles (but maybe because I'm only in newbie zones where there's no particular need to group up)
