Procrastination Amplification: Punditry on MMOs and games in general.

Quickie: So, Back To LotRO?

Lord of the Rings Online finally became free-to-play for Europeans this week and I’m thinking about returning in some way or another. A good friend asked me about a good free-to-play RPG the other day and I told her that I didn’t really have any recommendations but that checking out LotRO might be worth it. Now Codemasters sent me an email about the game being free-to-play and I decided to login in, see what changed and check out the store.

I seem to have some bonuses as an owner of the Mines of Moria and Siege of Mirkwood expansions (Not that I ever had a character at that level, but I picked up the expansions at some point.) but I’m really confused as to what I can and cannot do now. The store is an awful piece of software that gives no overview whatsoever over what’s available. I really don’t know whether playing LotRO F2P is going to be fun, especially when considering that I never really played the game much when I still paid for it. Then again, it’s Lord of the Rings and I haven’t played an MMO in a long while…
