By now you’ve heard, WOW is going free to play (at least the first twenty levels..). Love it or hate it, World of Warcraft was (and still is) undoubtedly the most popular MMO in history. World of Warcraft was so popular at one point that it boasted an insane 12 million subscribers. That’s 12 million people paying a MONTHLY fee of $15.00. Blizzard and Activison were making so much money that they could probably feed a hungry 3rd world nation sloppy joes on a regular basis (yum).
October 2012 will no doubt go down in video game history as one of the most insane release months of all time. The funny thing is, it’s not just the quantity of October’s releases, it’s also the diversity and quality. With Borderlands 2 still wub wub-ing in trays everywhere, early October also saw the release of Resident Evil 6, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Dishonored, and the 4th episode of Telltale’s incredible Walking Dead adventure game (which was one of this year’s biggest surprises for me… it’s so good). Later in the month we’ll have the releases of both Dance Central 3, Assassin’s Creed 3, and even more Borderlands 2 DLC. When are we supposed to sleep again?
If you’re intro strategy, shooting, dancing, stealth, or adventure, October 2012 will probably eat your soul and have your family asking “what happened to you!? You used to have such potential…”
What October releases are you playing? The correct answer is “ALL OF THEM!”
