Tabula Rasa!

Finally a new online game set within a Sci-fi story!
After playing at the whole Easter weekend (and a bit more) my opinion on the game is that it’s just great! And it has a lot of potential for the future. Right now there are lots of rumors out there about new updates and expansions, I won’t discuss them here, because it might just be talk without substance. And all would be nice and fuzzy if it hadn’t been for a lot of strange comments in the general chat, from players that was constantly cracking down on every little detail. The comments all have one thing in common: they come from people that play a lot of World of Warcraft. But the funniest comment I snatched during the Easter weekend must have been the following: “can you roleplay in a sci-fi game?”, followed be the discussion “how do you roleplay in a sci-fi game?” *sigh!* Well, you do like you always do! You play your character. Just like you do in your favorite game WOW. Just because it’s a Sci-Fi game doesn’t exclude the possibility of playing your character. It’s strange that people believe that you can only roleplay your character in a fantasy-setting. After all the badmouthing I can’t stop to wonder: Why do people pay to play a game they don’t like? And at the same time criticize the games’ story and mechanics… I will never understand that, I’m only glad that there are other games out there than WOW. The only drawback with WOW, that it has so many players out there, is that people tend to use the game as a benchmark. But maybe it’s not so strange that it has come down to that. With so many people playing WOW, it’s unavoidable that players start judging other games by the same standards they are used to. Myself, I don’t play WOW, have never tried it, have no interest in it and I will never install it onto my computer! There’s just too little Sci-Fi in WOW to accommodate my needs!
