Looks like Cryptic's finally put some stuff that's worth buying in the C-Store (their version of microtransactions). A Ding World has a really good analysis of all the items. Personally, there are only a few things I can really see myself spending any money on. The Retcon (respec) seems a bit costly at around $12, and I don't think I need 4 more character slots. But the costumes? Yes please. The beastial cyborg parts, especially the wings, are exactly the kind of things I'd want to use bits and pieces of on a new character. The Halloween head set is also pretty bitchin' too. I'd love to make a sort of spook-like hero using the pumpkin or the scarecrow head.
I've not had much time since Saturday to play, but I'm still chugging along at level 18. I like playing Wolfenstein a lot, but I recently ran out of quests in Millennium City that aren't too high for me, and I've been relegated to Snake Gulch in the Desert. Most people like that place. I find it boring and out of character for a superhero MMOG. It's a little too hokey for my tastes. But the quests are plentiful and pretty fun. I'm even working on collecting parts for a robot cowboy pet to tote around with me.
I also downloaded and tried out the Dragon Age Character Creator last night... and I was surprised to see it ran really well on my laptop which only has an onboard nVidia chipset for the GPU. It's just the creator, I know, but I'm hoping that this means I'll be able to run the final game on my laptop too. I'd love to be able to take DA:O with me to work for lunch along with Torchlight.
