Slow day

Not a lot happened today.  I did a vanquish in Guild Wars and played some DDO.  Saw some stuff about FFXIV, which wasn't flattering, but since it seems like they're in open-beta mode I might as well check it out (if it's not open, I won't be checking it out).

I've also been playing Recettear, which has been fun.  I can't really point to anything new or interesting that it's doing that I haven't seen before; it's not like I've never been a merchant in an RPG.  The dungeons, although fun, don't seem all that out-of-the-ordinary except that they're random (which isn't even a new feature in gaming).  But the game is fun, and I can't help myself.  I've been pleased.

I also thought I'd share a video one of my friends showed me today, if I can figure out how to do it.  It was a review/comparison between FFXIV and GW2, and their showing at PAX.  I could summarize more, but the video speaks for itself better.
