* MyGuyGames EQ2 Interview

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
MyGuyGames has an interview with a level 50 Everquest2 beta player up today.

The most interesting part? Even the beta testers admit that the game's still got problems with level grind, and incessant "zoning."

MGG: What was it like building your character? Did you feel like it was a grind?

Wrytched: Different stages of the game are definitely a grind. There's really no way to avoid it. You have to kill countless creatures to gain the experience necessary to level. Early on in the game you move quickly. They want you to be acclimated to the basics of your class/subclass. After about level 25, the game seems to slow to a much more natural pace. You continue to grow and learn and discover new aspects of the class you play. The largest part of the experience comes from the interaction of the players around you. This is in no way, a solo player's game.

The series also goes on to World of Warcraft, and then to a comparison between the two games.

Lots of information in there, and plenty of reasons why someone would love, or avoid, either game depending on their playing style.
