Is anybody else suffering from burnout?


I was really looking forward to PS2, especially the Beta release because I like to think that I'm going to get in. But it's taking too long and I'm kind of getting over it now.

I still like the class screenshots every week but it's not really enough to keep me going.

Is everybody still super excited and drooling over their inbox to see if they get "that" email or are you all getting a bit bored?

I don't drool over every scrap released anymore but I don't exactly play anything else either so as soon as PS2 DOES hit beta I'll be all over it.

Gotta relax and be patient. It's going to be another month or two at least.

Lots of cool stuff out there to keep your brain occupied.

Interesting that you say this. I subscribed to an all-access pass from SOE so I can still play PS1 and Everquest (and other things) while still generating some station cash over the next few months so that when PS2 DOES get released I should be able to buy all the sidegrades, XP boosts and shiny things right from the start.

I think they might have started their marketing campaign too early is all.

Everything we know about PS2 has been analysed, min/maxed, computer models created, discussed and argued to death and the new information being dribbled out to us doesn't take long to be put under the microscope, studied and absorbed into our outfit models and combat scenarios.

I occupy myself with lots of other things but I do like the usual update on PS2.

I hop on PS1 from time to time, other than that I don't find any other games very enjoyable atm. :/ Do you get station cash from being subscribed?

@ NCLynx

I'm pretty sure that if you just subscribe monthly to any one game, that's all you get. PS is $13 for me, but the all-access pass is $20. The extra $7 or so for the all-access pass gets you about 650 units of station cash which seems to have an approximate value of $6.50.

So I'm spending 50 cents a month getting access to Everquest and anything else on their games list.

It's only because I play 2 soe games that I've taken this route. If it was only about PS, I'd probably have cancelled my subscription and just spent $50 on station cash when PS2 comes out.

Take this advice from somebody who essentially waits for a lot of games, dont get hungup on them pre release, dont play the shit out of beta, dont plan heaps of shit months in advance, its all a waste of time and will effect your overall longterm enjoyment for the game when its properly released and/or it could just lead you to major disappointment.

Its planetside so i have a hard time taking my own advice on that, but i stay occupied with other games, most of the time, its why you see me posting in patches of activity here....nothing to play, im here...but its been afew months since i was active here last time

Firefall beta tomorrow

Re: Is anybody else suffering from burnout?


Seems like you want the game WAY too much. I'm excited, but I've got other stuff I need to focus on. PS2 is pretty much absent from my mind, but when I get on my computer first thing I check is PSU for any info, then I go on with my day.

Go outside and get an icecream cone or maybe chase some butterflies.

I've spent enough time chasing SKYeXile in-game. Don't wanna see anymore stinking butterflies unless I have a can of bug spray and a flyswat.

The butterfly is swift, elegant, beautiful and sometimes deadly.

The insta-drool for any media has certainly faded. The "information" they give with the weekly updates doesn't actually contain enough details for me, and the ones they do give are obvious to anyone who's played a FPS with classes.

But GDC did just happen, and PAX is around the corner. We can't expect major details every week :/
