The Daily Grind: Do you MMO on the road?

I am traveling again for Massively OP, and that means not much in the way of MMOs for me for a little while. When I get back, sure. Right now, no. It’s a bit of a shame; my laptop can’t really handle most of what I play, and even if it could I don’t exactly trust it.

Of course, these days there are mobile MMOs and more powerful laptops designed to game on the go. So perhaps in this, as with many things, I am so far behind the times that it’s laughable.

Tell me, dear readers, what about you? Do you MMO on the road? Or do you get your online gaming in at home and nowhere else?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Only at home, MMO or gaming in general.
When i step outside that front door, gaming takes a back seat.
Gosh, i even forget taking my mobile half of the time.

I have my modest desktop set up “just so”; I can’t imagine trying to feel comfortable gaming on a laptop or travelling anywhere. And trying to game on a mobile phone just doesn’t appeal in the slightest.

I don’t think a true mmos will ever work on mobile, it always feel like a gimp version of the PC version. Games that are better suited for mobile like RPGs and touch screen games like Terra battle are great

I tried a number of mobile MMOs, but for whatever reason they didn’t hook me. I don’t know what the issues were but I just couldn’t get into them. I think I will eventually find one….but I think it’s going be an ongoing process to find the one Mobile MMo (MMMO?) for me. I am content to play other genre of games on mobile platforms, such as Clash of Clans, Real Racing 3, and Candy Crush….yes sadly I play that game. LOL

Maybe if i was in a room by myself, where I could really get immersed in the game without distraction.  For me MMO’s are all about immersion, it’s one of the few reason I play the genre as much as I do, and being around other people, noise, etc breaks that immersion.

This is the same reason I don’t play MMO’s on mobile devices.  Not that I don’t/can’t game in public, I just chose to play simple games for those situations (angry birds etc)

I game on a laptop but it is way too heavy to lug around. I used to be able to run Glitch and AO on my HP netbook that had an Nvidia chip in it. But TSW and the other stuff I dabble in have graphics demands that are way too heavy for the netbook, which leaves me with nothing for the road trips. If I’m on a long business trip with co-workers, sometimes I will pack the heavy monster just so I can get some down time away from them.

My hubs travels quite a bit for 3+ months at a time so he usually has his laptop with him. We recently spent 5 months out of state so I just went ahead and brought my desktop. At least gaming is a fairly compact hobby. I also usually have my 7″ tablet for out of country trips, it’s good on the planes and trains, although that’s not for MMOs yet.

Normally I don’t but the last anime convention I went to had barely anything going on during the first night so I just said “forget it” and retired early to my hotel room to play some Tera with my brother and other guildies.
