A Rift in the Rift

When I started playing the trial period of the massively multiplayer online role playing game Rift for the Personal Computer last week, my initial impression of the game was so positive that I almost thought of actually investing in the game. Direct2Drive had a one day special for the game where the price was cut in half if I remember correctly but that occurred way too early into the trial period that I decided to just wait it out and play more of the game. With the installation of Windows 7 that occurred on Tuesday of this week, I haven't even reinstalled the game into my computer and being so active on Justin.tv lately streaming League of Legends gameplay took me away from going back into the game. I regret wasting the free time that has been granted to me like this and I pretty much have only one day left of the game so at this point, it would be a waste of time to download it again. The good news here is that it is apparent that I do not need to invest in a MMO right now because I probably will not commit to it since I did not even bother getting the game reinstalled immediately after I switched my operating system. The bad news however is that I still feel a bit of longing for some MMO gameplay so I should find some means to satisfy that. Maybe Guild Wars again but I tried so hard to get things going with that game and every time it just wouldn't go anywhere. Perhaps I should head back to those so-called "free to play" MMOs again...

Even Steam has the game on sale right now but I'm afraid it's all too late...

Hehe, I'm finding it hard to just update. If I wasn't playing WoW I probably would be still in the Rift.

But yes, League of Legends has come along now and blown that out of the water haha.

So glad that you are into LoL now. We have Garen to thank for this perhaps? Hehe.
