So confession my dear readers (all…four of you?). I almost forgot to write this article because I was playing the game it’s about. In fact it took Tophat to remind me that it was Friday! We talked a bit about the latest MMO to hit the market, The Old Republic. And I think I said something quite telling about the game in that conversation, without even thinking about it. When he asked me how the game was, I responded with “I’m enjoying the single player.” Wait, WHAT?! This is an MMO. Massive Multiplayer is in the genre. As it stands now though, the game seems very divided. It’s this division that makes it both a unique game in the MMO space, but one whose power to retain a player base for a long period of time is in question.
