There and Back Again

With the cool days of spring settling upon us and the anxiously awaited games of summer yet to arrive, many massively multiplayer gamers may be caught between games. What game should you play while you wait? How can you pass the time? If you're interested in our recommended games, but you're looking for a second opinion, you need not go any further than Ten Ton Hammer's own membership base. One of Ten Ton Hammer's premium community members, Jay "Medeor" Johnson, has re-entered Lord of the Rings Online - Turbine's vision of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-Earth - and has written his experiences of the event. Check it out, then make sure you leave a comment in our forums!

Forty quests in a log – Woot! and Ugh! all rolled into one! Being a completionist, enabling me to have 40 quests is like dumping the sunflower seeds in front of a vampire (see X Files archives for more info). I can't move on until I have clicked all of the "done" boxes. The quest log has a nice segmentation between the different quest types and so far the quest log itself is quite handy.

LotRO's new class comes late to the party, but it is certainly an interesting choice.
