I like to fish in MMOs. Which is strange because I don’t much like to fish in meatspace. My favorite MMO fishing mechanics were in ArcheAge, which is too bad since you can’t do much fishing in ArcheAge without getting stealth ganked by people who enjoy killing defenseless fishermen.
Maybe I’ll like World of Fishing better. Probably not, since it’s free-to-play with a cash shop, but I can hope, right? World of Fishing styles itself as an “online big game fishing simulator,” and it promises over 30 locations and 360 different fish, as well as a large variety of gear and boats.
World of Fishing is also in open beta as of… well, right now! You can see a trailer after the break.
