Free Realms Beta

This is a good move by SOE.

When I first looked at it I said to myself, “Why the heck would I play this?” Well, I probably wouldn’t, not alone. My son, however, might be into this. In fact, I picked up a (PC) video game for him that involves dungeon delving and exploration. This sort of thing might be better suited for him so I might take a look.

Bonus of it being free (Ken, you reading this?) is that I could play along with him or my wife or my wife and my youngest son. It could be interesting and fun for all of us.

I’m not saying Ken is cheap, I just know he reads this from time to time and his daughter takes an interest in some of our D&D sessions – at least, when we weren’t playing evil characters – so it might be something they could enjoy doing together. Being free helps a lot when you’re trying to see if a kid is going to enjoy something.

  1. Oh thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰ Making me look bad here…

    I’ll take a look at it. If it’s kid appropriate, maybe we’ll give it a shot.

  2. Making other people look bad is what I do… ๐Ÿ™‚

    The whole idea is that it’s aimed more at kids with a lot of protection devices in place. One thing was no free text chat for kids under 13, instead they get to pick from presets and they’re isolated from free chat – that avoids obscenities and predators. Sort of like Webkinz only there is supposed to be a whole lot more to do.

  3. I am so excited for this game. I have been waiting to try it for a long time. it looks very promising.
