    Read books until GW2 arrives...   ;)

     

    My recommendation (since people seem to be doing this) is the author Robin Hobb..    very good fantasy fiction.

    Don't let the negativity of the rubes on this forum tell you otherwise.

    and don't let fanboys blinded by their fanboy love tell you otherwise. If you have to ask such a question it probably means read a book. Also by the time you get bored reading tsw might be f2p.

    Trying to decide if I should just take a flier on TSW, give SWTOR another go...or my other option which was my original plan, was to take all of July off from gaming to get caught up on my pleasure reading.  Just picked up The Covenant by James Michener at the library yesterday.
     
     
     

    I play TSW and read books too, it is quite possible to do the same. Currently i am trying to finish all books by Paulo Coelho. Currently reading The winner of solitude.

    Multitasking.

    Same here.

    Read A Game of Thrones

    It's better written, more engaging, easier to follow and doesn't cost $15 a month.

    Can't go wrong with reading books.

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

    Book it up, man.

     

    I recommend the Malazan Book of the Fallen series from Steven Erikson.  Great storyline(s), memorable characters.  Can't go wrong.  Enjoy!

    Wow, I expected a lot more pros and cons of SWTOR resub and TSW feedback...but you never know where I thread will go :)  Thanks for all the reading recommendations, always on the look out for something new I wouldn't have otherwise thought to try.

    TSW is a lot of fun to me, some people get different mileage from the game I like it. I just finished reading "The Conquest of Gaul" by Julius Ceaser very good read, now back to sci fi and the Gaunts Ghost's series from Warhammer 40k, then back to War and Peace I promised myself I would read that this summer.

    read a book for sure. Or watch some paint dry. Either would be a far better time than your other options.

    Unfortunately SWTOR is DEAD until the freemium model for it rolls out. TSW is great. I played the betas and will be playing it all this month for sure. The only problem I have with TSW is it feels like a single player game sometimes. But I'm hoping that will change as I get deeper into it. A regular book that I have been reading is the Barnes and Noble HP Lovecraft leather bound collection, it is fantastic. As far as a interactive book, LOTRO is still a great game that feels like you are inside a novel and I still play it.

    But not the Soldier Son series, I would say.  Unless you like reading books where nothing happens to the protagonist except for his constantly being shit upon.  It wasn't depressing so much as just... dreary.

    Personally, I've got to put a few books on my list as well.  I just realized the other day that I've never read Fahrenheit 451, for instance.

    I'd say the jury is still out with TSW.The combat,to me,was boring.But the atmosphere/theme was awesome.

     

    ToR? read a book...hell, read the dictionary instead.

  • khelbonkhelbon plaquemine, LAPosts: 102Member

    You can never go wrong with a good book!

    I just finished reading the Hunger Games. Good book and was a good read.

    Also maybe look into some of the older D and D books....I still am a huge fan of the Forgotten Realm and Dragonlance books. Just start out with the older ones and you will have tons and tons of reading to do!

    Book would be my choice.

    I picked up TSW last night so I haven't got far in it yet, about a dozen quests through Innsmouth. It's not a bad game really, but don't.. I really push this point.. DON'T go into the game expecting a typical MMO experience. Play it as a single player game with co-op, otherwise you'll be disappointed. I read a few threads around here stating that it was basically a single player game with co-op and that's the mindset I had going in, so I'm not disappointed. If I'd gone in expecting an MMO I would have quit by the end of the night. It's a good single player game though.

    Jsut because I fucking like a game doesn't make me some kind of a bad person.

    In my opinion TSW is the best themepark game out there at the moment, nothing thats due out this year is going to come clsoe not even GW2..

    For me TSW feels fresh and for a themepark MMORPG thats awesome..

     

    I am not the biggest fan of this type of MMO but i think its going to keep me playing for some time..

    Reading 7 books at the same time? I never do that! Not that  I read a lot...most of the books I read are course books :D

    My book recommendation would be Flowers for Algernon. I confess that I cried at the end... Such a sad story, but still so great. :)
