Wizard 101 and Free Realms: Too much fun!

Last night I took another look at Wizard 101. It's really been a long time since I played it, I've been hearing a lot of good things about it. It's had a lot of changes since I last played, so I wanted to give it another go around. Plus it seems the biggest competition for Free Realms, I figured I may as well see which one I like better. I ended up making another character since the ones I had made ages ago didn't appeal to me. I went with a necro type character.

It's really a cute game. When I actually sat down to play it my brothers had stopped by to hang out for awhile, one ended up watching me play. We had fun laughing every time I ran into a battle by accident. While I don't like card games very much in these types of games, this one didn't actually feel like the norm. It was pretty awesome, there are some very cool moves when you attack. I also liked that you could join a battle that was starting or already started. This game has some good music and really nice voice acting to boot. Player housing and mounts are just icing on the cake. I might keep messing around with this game, on the side.

It really is a very good game. A few things I didn't like were the controls, maybe those could be changed around.. not sure. Also how you have to find a wisp (which I only saw the city), or play mini games to get health and mana back. I'd just rather it regen out of combat. Not anything really bad though. This game has a real unique feel.

While my brother was watching I decided to show him my Free Realms character. His computer lags with the game, too bad to play it. He's been wanting to see some of the Halloween stuff. So he ended up playing the racing games a few times, which he really liked, and was impressed with how fun it was. He liked this one out of the two I showed him because of all you can do in Free Realms.

Thats is what I've been having fun with, all the things you can do. Bored fighting monsters? Go deliver some mail, play tower defense (hard makes me want to barf... too many rounds to get my snowhill suit) or train your pet. I still need to find a guild. I'm currently leveling up the mail job. I want those fast boots you get from the higher up quest!

My Aion account expired yesterday. Oh noes! It's either this or WoW I will reactivate. I still have not decided, so I'm kind of waiting around a few days to make up my mind. For now I'll just keep playing Free Realms as it has my interest. The Halloween event is probably one of the best I've seen in any game. There are a lot of good ones out there though. Tough choices! That is about it on what I've been playing.

Till next time!
