I was moderately excited to see a beta invite to The Secret World appear magically in my in-box (Sir!). It's a new MMO which states that is going to be different, not like all the others, and not like all the others that also say they are going to be different but end up the same. In any case I followed the links and ended up at this:
Brace yourself (and not in the Australian sense of the phrase, right Sheila). Ready? Okay.
I don't fucking use Facebook and I'm not going to start to try a new fucking game. There. Rant over, or as others have stated more humorously, my nappy has been flung. It's now safe.
I may not, because I refuse to use a third party social site that harvests personal information for business' and is used by all sorts of enterprising predators (sexual and financial), get to play what could be a 'new' game. Oh well. I also fought Steam for years and did without some games I really wanted until I caved. That was mostly due to the good sales they have and the fact I'm not required to broadcast my personal life to the world to use it. I can guarantee you I will not be caving in to Facebook- ever.
Oh, I also managed to not get invited to the Salem Beta even though I referred the correct number of people.
Where's my nappy damnit, there's more flingin' to be done.
