    interesting idea for those who are hesitant to jump into the
    MMORPG realm but rather pricey IMHO...

    If you’ve got blue hair and a huge chest then you probably qualify for GamePal’s new rental service. For $199.99 per month you can rent a leveled-up character in 1 of 14 popular MMORGS. What a deal!

    I've got the chest, but my hair is pink. Tsk :winkgrin:

    But goodness, I wonder who *would* rent a character for $200 a month????????? Any testimonials??

    Their level up service is kinda silly. You pay them to play your character and level it up for you while you go off and do something else? Where's the fun in that??

    i guess if you were to try and buy all those games and fund the accounts in one go then it would be a bargain... just to "try" them...
