Please note… whilst this post represents a real ‘pig’… it does end in a shameless plug but, for something very well worth checking out.
Well… firstly… not… it’s fucking not..!!
Oh sure… the ‘app’ is free but c’mon… who of us hasn’t downloaded the app and had a ball for like a week and then… boing..!!
You say… I nee this to get this, and the app says… oh yes… you get this here, for these ‘coins’ or ‘diamonds’ or whatthefuckever the game ‘currency’ is… so you say, right off we go… *rubs hands together, enthusiastically* and the app says… oh sorry… you don’t have enough ‘currency’ yet… but you can get some here… #99.00 of your earth currency gets you XX.00 of our own exclusive fictional currency… just click here..!! And so on and so on…
Free game..? FUCK OFF>>!!
Personally… I am sick to fucking death of these ‘free’ games and worse… trying to delete an account with these organisations is another head-fuck..!! I am actually in a fight with ‘a game company’ to remove my account after I used my earth currency to buy their exclusive fictional one and it all went to shit after that… a long story that I won’t explore because they assure me that the error I described couldn’t possibly have happened..!! You’ll have to pardon my ignorance here but after being told this… I just now assume that any bit of game code that communicates with another bit of game code… using a bit of game code is the most secure thing in the fucking world now… I am only surprised that the government isn’t using Pokemon-Go to secure all their data… but anyway… I digress…
And now… the shameless plug..!!
There is a game I play, which has been around for a long time and… I… love… it..!! It really is free.. you hear me..? FREE..!!
Sure… you don’t get to flick your balls at fictional (yet, yes, quite cute) monsters… and… yes, I hear you ask… what else would you do with your balls when faced with a cute monster..? Well, personally and because of my recent experiences… I just watch mine shrivel away and go and make a cup of tea.
Jesus..!! My digressions are becoming a problem… so, this game then… the free one… the one that won’t oblige you to buy coins or whatever to progress… yes… it’s true.. it… really…is… free… from start to finish…
Well… you need a brain (by this I really mean an imagination… you don;t have to have a fucking doctorate or anything… although some of the players do have them) so by all means, if your experience of playing online games ends at monster hunting on top of garages or wherever… just stay there… this is probably not for you… trust me… you need a brain… sorry, an imagination and some basic writing skills, and a curiosity of what it would be like to be someone else, although you can learn this as well as the game conventions as you go because, the community that the game sits in, are not (to my mind) the judgemental bastards who work for [insert name of company here: iff you can demonstrate, beyond doubt, in a court of law that this is a true representation] (Honestly… I could show you the emails).
A friend introduced to this game many years ago, and I fell in love with it immediately… it is text-based MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Play Game) and fi you like anything to do with role playing, think you can maintain a character, through their life, trying to get by in sometimes trying environments… forming relationships… just plain living (and I should mention… sometimes dying too) I urge you to just have a look..!
Get fid of these fucking corporate money sucking shit-for-brains ‘free’ games and settle for nothing less than a real but manageable challenge, and hey… if it doesn’t suit you… tell your friends… I am on a massive signing up bonus (That’s not true… I just want to see more people enjoying this game… it has a lot of players but… it’s truly a massive world..!! You’ll have to acquire a ship to see it all..!!
