Well, I bought a copy of The Secret World, and so far I really like it. Only been playing for a few hours, but so far the game is fun and very fluid. While there isn't traditional leveling, you do level up skills and abilities by earning points to put into things. What I've seen of the world so far, it is very rich in content--you actually want to listen to the quest givers because they give you important information, as does the lore. Also, the horror elements are done right--this has a very Lovecraft look and feel to it, and I like the modern day setting.

I'll post some screenshots eventually.

I have a few friends who play it and are quite enthusiastic about it too. I might dabble.

Well, for players who love to play around with stats and combos, this is probably the game for you. You have access to all the game's abilities, but you can only have 7 active and 7 passive abilities available at any given time. It's a little mind-boggling. I'm using blades for soloing right now, since that's a good set for high damage and self-buffing with heals and defense. But I'm working on a couple of official decks, including Paladin and Exorcist.

I moved into the next area, The Savage Coast last night and had a rough time of it on the beach near the hotel. It was very satisfying to finally complete the quest, however. Smile

I believe I may cancel my SWTOR account shortly. TSW is so much more fun right now. It's a shame, I had fun in SWTOR, but I feel like it's already a little stale, and I was never able to connect with other players, and it was too much like WOW in the end for me. I've already found a cool cabal in TSW.

I'll keep an eye on SWTOR, however, and maybe play it again further down the line.
