I’m an IP Whore

icecream-girlI am an IP or intellectual property whore. Let me explain. I’ve was playing some Wildstar and though it had some problems I just wasn’t being grabbed. I just wasn’t loving it.  I was trying to figure it out. Am I that jaded/cynical? Has WoW tainted me beyond all reason?

No I don’t think so, I loved other games Warhammer Online for sure. Then what is my problem…IP. I have to love the IP.

Let’s look at some of the games I did champion  Warhammer Online, then I jumped on the Star Trek Online bandwagon, then the Star Wars bandwagon. I wasn’t all about Guild Wars 2, but I got on board.  All these games have some established IP’s, and long running ones at that.

So ESO has a long established IP, I should love ESO right?  I don’t, because ESO’s IP I never got into, all the way back in the Daggerfall days I just never played, then as the games grew I still didn’t like it all that much, not to mention some other problems I had with the games.

So am I going to pre-order Wildstar, I don’t know yet but I’ll keep playing maybe something from the IP will click with me, but I am warming up to the Dominion as their quite the right bastards.
