...for example, that new Star Wars online game announced that this fall, it'll become free to play, after less than a year. And the game's initial price is also going to go from 60 to 15 bucks.

That's not the worst possible thing for them, (One company spent 100 million dollars to make a game that was cancelled 3 months after launch.) but that's still an amazingly fast time to go from "Cash! NOW!" to "Please mister Jedi, could you spare some change!"

Considering that had the best development team money (oh so much money) could buy, 5+ years of development, and a license that still has a lot of clout, I'm going to assume if they can't sell a game for 15 bucks a month, nobody can.

These are not the investment returns you're looking for...

The fact that I've never heard even one thing about this game tells me that I am way out of touch with the video gaming world.

Which, in turn, makes me very happy indeed.

Yay!

I've just spent the last month returning to Azeroth and finally leveling my Night Elf hunter to 61 (also on another server, leveling my Night Elf druid to 24 and my Worgen rogue to 23, and a Blood Elf warlock to 10).

It's a weirdly different game. Advancement goes FAST. The economy in the auction house has experienced insane inflation -- I can make more than 200 gold in a weekend from first-tier herbs gathered in Teldrassil. I can make more with Icecap and Golden Sansam. I can make sick money with Bloodthistle.

It's definitely weird not to see familiar faces It's also odd trying to spark new friendships -- the RP is scattered and sometimes good, sometimes just as dorky as trying to meet a new RP group at the game store.
