EQ2 opinions that count!
If you aren't aware of who Aggro Me is, you've missed out on an insightful, honest, straight foward, and sometimes humorous look at EverQuest 2 and the MMO market in general. Slide infiltrates the Aggro Me Elite Ninja Death Squad to unlock his secrets.
SLiDE: What was it that motivated you to start a MMO related blog spot?
Aggro Me: I’ll let you in on a secret I don’t think I’ve ever stated publicly. It wasn’t money (good thing because there isn’t any), fame (haha), or the desire to get a job at a game company that got me started with Aggro Me. I conceived the idea for a novel, entitled “Aggro Me” before I ever started the site. The blog was really a research tool to help me with that novel and maybe act as a launching pad if I ever finished it.
Of course, things change. That novel is still mired in the second chapter and the blog has several hundred lengthy posts. I started to really care about EQII and I wanted to change it for the better. That normally took the form of blasting perceived imperfections in the game, and believe me there were plenty in those days. Lately, I have taken on a more positive note not because I’ve changed, but because the game has. I’m as honest now as I was then and if I tried to be negative just for the sake of it, I would be doing myself and my readers a grave disservice.
