Why I Should Stick My Neck Out For You Is Far Beyond My Capacity!

by Rainier on July 9, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

I've been trying to get into APB this week, and there seems to be nothing wrong with the game at first sight, but I'm still having a hard time getting into it. Graphically, it is better than CrimeCraft for sure. It's also more stable and better populated, but yet I find myself playing more CC than APB. Several of our gang members have already migrated over, so grouping up with them to run through the missions adds to the fun, but once a few have to tend to social matters, I instantly get bored and leave.

This weekend, we have no major plans apart from going to an art & wine festival, so we can catch up on some Netflix movies and TV shows on the DVR.
