    Top of the Play pre-order PC chart:

    Fourth in all-formats:

    “Fans” went bonkers when those life-time subs ran out. MMOs, innit. Aion will be the same.

    So in your opinion what mmo coming out are you interested in most? ff14? champions? dc?

    Me personally? I’m very excited about CCP’s World of Darkness.

    I never played City of Heroes, so I reckon I’ll try CO, and most probably DC. Aion looks amazing, but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to justify dropping 100+ hours on another fantasy MMO. Same with FFXIV, if I’m being honest, although I’m sure I’ll play both for a bit.

    I’m interested in seeing Funcom’s Secret World, too. But World of Darkness id the one I’m really watching.

    You? Do you play them?

    Oh, and The Old Republic. I can’t believe that. I definitely will play it. I reckon it looks brilliant.

    I played Warcraft and WAR, and if its allowed guild wars, i played guild wars the most though. If anything i’m interested in dc and old republic the most but CO caught my attention due to lifetime sub, i wish WAR did that.

    I tried WAR and honestly couldn’t get on with it. Played it for a few weeks, and just got bored of the endless fighting. I was coming straight out of WoW, so I was used to more exploration.

    Guild Wars was great, I thought. Haven’t played it for a long time, though.

    Ellie: “Me, me, me”
    Steph: “That’s nice!”

    Great stuff, once again.

    Pat could you find out if a lifetime sub owner would the sub apply to both pc and console version of the game if they had both or only the one?
