So I saw via John Davison’s Twitter feed that What They Play was giving away beta keys for Ether Saga Online, a free-to-play MMO based on Journey to the West. If you know anything about me, the latter-most part of that description would be enough to get me to sign up.

I downloaded and installed the game this evening. This was the first time I’ve ever laid eyes on any MMO for longer than two seconds, and the first time I’ve ever actually personally played one, myself.

WTF is all this…?! How can anyone make sense of this kind of screen? I’m so lost.

Back to quarter-circle-punch for me.
