Just five weeks from launch now. The hype has been fairly subdues but X Play on G4 claims it is the top selling PC game in the world. That would be pre-order since you can't buy the game yet. Unless this is a total POS I think it is where i will reside until such a time as Blizzard sees fit to bless us with Diablo 3.

I have not played my GuildWars account in 4 months and my HellGate London account has only been used half-heartedly a couple times in the last two months.

It remains to be seen if there will be any decent LLD (or Twinks as the haters like to call them).

I do hate the name Twink...

I might be getting this on 360, depending on reviews and hopefully input from people here.

Yeah, this ought to be cherry. Question is, 360 or PC?

PC is coming out like 4 months earlier, and I've heard that you have to pay a monthly fee on both, which I simply won't do. Paying for XBL and Conan is ridiculous.

I'm a Mac user anyway, so I couldn't get the PC version anyway. Not that I'd pay...

It looks like a decent MMO. I probably won't get it but it's cool.

I guess it'll depend on two things for me:

1. How tech-intensive the PC release will be. My computer is pretty decent, but if I can't get comparable graphics and framerates I'll probably consider the 360 version.

2. Censoring. If they "tone down" the 360 version I'll definitely take a pass on it. I fully support the "all games aren't for little kids" effort these people are pushing forward on. Frankly, if someone wants to put a chainsaw through the head of a random stranger while getting head from a goatwoman, I say more power to them. Better online than in real life. Plus, I like to think that every time someone sees a naked boob in a video game, James Dobson gets another rectal polyp. Twisted Evil

They just announced a PvP beta for 15,000 for April 18th -20th. You have to enroll at Gamespot.com and then apply to get into the Beta. Worth a shot!

Bah. American pre-orders can't get the War Rhino? That's the only damn pre-order item I wanted. Screw the bow and the mammoth - I want me some rhino destruction!

Best Buy has the Killer Rhino. I have both the War Mammoth and the Killer Rhino on my account.

I played the PvP weekend and enjoyed it despite some serious bugs that were exploited by some groups. It is amazing how quickly guilds can find an exploit and communicate it to all thiee members so that they can break an area of a map or a mini game.

Also there were some mistakes made with certain characters that made for greatly overpowered classes that were quickly found and exploited. First, it was the Ranger with the high level bow that did way to much damage to level 20 opponents. That was fixed with an update. Then it was the assassins stacking skills that resulted in on hit kills.

Still it was fun and I pre ordered it. Hopefully, it will keep me going until Diablo 3 hits the store shelves. When that happens I will have gone full circle and I can die a happy gamer.

Yeah, they've supposedly fixed the Ranger thing. I also caught the War Rhino at BB, but by then I didn't care. Mammoth will be good for Siege Warfare, hopefully.

It's a pretty technically demanding game (computer-wise); I'm hoping the beta is just more monstrous than the release will be. I hear it is. My computer can fairly comfortably handle medium-high settings in beta, so if release is less stressful then I'll be golden.

Well we are down to the last week before release. I will be playing on a PvP server but unfortunately I have a lot of real life obligations in the next few weeks so I will probably lag well behind on leveling and be gank bait by the time I get off noob island. Two of my sons quit WoW to play this game but I think the driving factor of that was that they want to kill me in game. I got the early access so I will begin downloading on Wedesday and hopefully be able to play a little bit next weekend.

I joined an 800 member guild that has over 200 PvP players so I guess I will be calling on my guildies for protection as I try to catch up leveling.

I will be playing a Guardian main and a Tempest of Set alt character.

Yep, I can't play computer games as much as I used to when I was addicted to D2 (got re-married) but this game is pretty awesome. Obviously it has a few bugs and rough spots here and there but it is still head and shoulders above any sword and sorcery type game on the market today. I am only up to level 21 at this point (some are above 60) but I am enjoying playing on a PvP server despite getting ganked by a higher level every once in a while.


Great game. Check it out! It will hold my interest until Blizzard pops D3.
