I have re-subscribed to EVE Online, but Empire space palled within a week and I am not ready for (or really interested in) the PvP areas. This may be my last month here ever. But I am religiously making sure that I do not waste skill points, carefully switching skills as appropriate. Why?
On a different front, I have a new little free browser-based game, Rule the Seas. I know that I will tire of this fairly quickly, as I have flirted with a dozen of them. Kingdom of Loathing is the only one I keep going back to. Don’t get me wrong, there are worse things in the world than being a pirate of the high seas in a shallow, text-based world that revolves around soliciting donations and one-click PvP. It will be amusing for a little while, which is about all I can ask. But why is it interesting to click through some levels in these things? I have already done the math to figure out the system, so it is just a matter of making a few clicks every 20 minutes if I want to play.
Do I just want a database somewhere out there to register, “click, Zubon is hereby a slightly cooler guy”?
