Lately I find myself stuck in gaming limbo once again. I’ve reached that point where no currently-released games give me that burning desire to log in and play for hours. This weekend I had a lot of free time and ended up preferring to just zone out playing Hearthstone while watching Netflix on my second monitor. I’m not burned out on MMOs or even games in general — quite the opposite, in fact. I’m desperate for something great to play; I truly do want that ‘next best thing’.
Two MMOs are on my radar as big interests: EverQuest Next and Camelot Unchained. Both are in in the year or more left in development stage which means it’s too early to wait for them to come out. For those of you emailing me or tweeting me to check out EverQuest again, I am. I’ve dabbled once again on the old school servers and I’m debating if I want to jump into that heavily or… try FFXI with some friends.
I had a craving this weekend for something medieval or fantasy based where I build and/or manage a kingdom. My mind starting concocting something like WarCraft 3 meets Civilization. Anyone have a good recommendation for something like that? Just a random thought.
What games are keeping you busy or maybe you can tell me about a game I’ve neglected to pay attention to that might release before my big two.
