Best MMO I've played in many years. Keep in mind it is a lot different than your typical MMO. It's a sandbox MMO, there's no real "end game goal". It's about farming, raising animals, crafting, building, creating your own businesses. For example I spent a solid 2-3 weeks doing nothing but trying to get my low level boat so I could start chumming in the ocean rather than fishing off banks. I spent like my whole time after that doing nothing but fishing for gold to support my farm/land. You can get to max level doing nothing but fishing for example.

There is combat and there are quests, but you can level up by farming/mining/fishing/crafting just as fast as you can while doing combat and it's not the main focus as it is in other games. I only did the tutorial zone quests, once I got my mount and got my first patch of farm I barely did any quests. There's a lot of PvP especially out in the sea. You can craft a ships and become a pirate, attacking people and destroying their ships and getting their trade boxes worth a lot of gold (doing trade routes is another business option that many people go to, but it's a risk with pirates). There's even a court system in place where actual players go to trial against people who are notorious PvP players, and the PvP player has to spend actual time in jail if they are caught and found guilty.

In other words, go into it thinking it's a sandbox MMO where the core of the game is being anything you want, farming/crafting/fishing/trade routes/pirate/what have you, getting new ships/boats, crafting houses on your farm and buying farm animals to use so you can build up more money to support your other adventures or whatever you want to do. You even have to pay weekly taxes on your land and other property you own, it's pretty in-depth stuff. At "end game", fishing out in the open sea on your fishing boat (multiple types of boats suited for different things) is just as good as doing PvP or quests or anything else. End game is whatever you want it to be.

I am looking forward to it. I have always looked or a true sandbox MMO. Something like WoW that is more than PVP/PVE at the end. Don't get me wrong, I highly doubt anything will ever make me quit WoW. But if this game delivers, I could definitely see myself playing alongside it for sure.

Already cancelled Wildstar. That is the biggest WoW clone ever. It is literally the same game but "harder".

Never heard about it but pretty excited for it now. It's like you were describing Star Wars Galaxies in your post, which is widely considered one of the best MMO's out there. Not sure what to think of the game setting though.

Hearthstone expansion came out. Adds some interesting gameplay to singleplayer. Game is extremely laggy right now though.

If you play a rush deck in hearthstone, please know you are terrible at the game and should probably play something else. That is all.

I thought Episode 4 was pretty good, albeit very... unemotional? I guess what you'd call it, compared to some of the other episodes.
