This is Cricket.
No, I'm not kidding. Booty Cryo. Seriously. She'll freeze your house down, gain the attention of the gods, and be the best freaking immortal out there...just in style.
Something that I found kind of strange, however, even if simply on my romanticization of how MMOs should be, is that everyone is strangely all out for themselves. Except for once, where I had a short conversation about quinoa salad ingredients with someone in the regional chat, I haven't really interacted with many other players, especially when trying to formulate a plan or get coordinated in an instanced area. As it happens, a lot of the community on the NA servers, it seems, is international, so I don't understand most (if not any) of the non-English languages being spoken. I'm not too fed up with this, but I didn't really notice much English conversation going through it, either. Maybe over time this will change?
When it comes to the plot in early game, I have to say that I'm...well, not really impressed. Besides my backstory being pretty interesting, things start out pretty slow with me just being put into the workforce of the immortals and told to go do what I am told. I may be starting on a path more related to my backstory, but things didn't pick up very quickly and I've found myself kind of sluggish to meet my goals.
All in all, I feel that I've only gotten to really enjoy Skyforge for the aesthetic so far. With my fingers crossed, I'll keep playing and be able to talk a little more about the whole fight spectrum and my thoughts on how I'm enjoying it or otherwise, but at the time, I just don't really feel qualified to talk about it or even compare it to other games. I guess I'll figure that part out on my own. What I'm really hoping for is that the storyline will pick up a little more and that I'll find inter-player interaction a little bit more approachable, understandable, and...well, there.
TL;DR - Looks really pretty, booty could be reduced, still not sure on whether or not I'll stick
