    I thought you could play wow on custom(free) servers?

    You can, but it's kind of lame. You can play "Blizz-like" and take a chance getting to 70 without some homegrown server going down. Or you can get to 70 in one kill, get all the gear and mounts you want, and raid for no reason at all.

    I don't know. An alternative to WoW for me is REAL LIFE. There's perils, victories, money to be made and lost, and I don't have to look all over the place to find a hot girl because my wife is all I need.

    Yeah but you can't ride flying animals and wear cool shoulder pads :( lawl

    Anyway, I'm impressed with the Hellgate London demo. I think I'm gonna buy it.

    ... and you can always bribe a Wife/Girlfriend/stripper to wear some pointy night-elf ears! ;)

    *whisper* Someone's wife was looking on while he posted this, I bet! */whisper*

    Remember, Hellgate's online component is still a "work in progress", so expect a lot of bugs and server downtime...

    Yup... fuckin Hellgate... it's so bugged. But if you think you can bear with it, be my guest.

    I don't know...I'm really liking WoW right now, and I'm guild-less!

    Time is on my side since I work from home. I study like crazy and still have all the time in the world.

    can anyone tell me if guild wars can be played casually? i'm an ex Wow player as well and i can't just go back to playing (especially since i deleted my toon and DE'd all my gear to make sure i didn't start back up again.) i know GW is no WoW, but if I can play for a few hours a week and still get some enjoyment out of it i might consider playing

    I fear and have avoided WoW and Everquest. I'm a casual gamer, and both seem pretty time intensive. Which is why I like Oblivion so much - it's single player so I can take my time.

    You can also kill a whole damn town. You've always got some faggot GM or all powerful NPC in MMO's.
