I read a long article on it about a month ago and it really got me interested.

One of my old coworkers has been working on this game for a few years. He seemed excited about it, but wouldn't share any of the details.

SOE has destroyed every MMO they've touched so far. You couldn't PAY me to play this.

And yet, I have a feeling your geek side will prevail and you will yet again succumb to the siren call of a franchise-based game and fork over the money in the hopes that SOE might actually be able to put out a quality product... only to realize, of course, that you were correct in your assumption all along.

I got an email for the beta today. I'm not sure if I'll actually play the game, but we'll see.

Um... Wow. I'm not sure NDA wise what I'm supposed to say and not say, but best first 3 hours of an MMO I've ever had, and it's still in beta. That being said, I never played any of the CoH games, or other Super Hero MMOs.

I really have 0 idea of how the game works. I've read nothing, and skill advancement and character creation I just sort of guessed and took whatever. I don't know the level cap, or really anything about the game.

Cool:

There's a solid tutorial and mission to get you going. Sounds small, but coming from FFXI this was nice. The UI is simple, and the controls as well, but the more you level, the more complex things get.

Fast action combat. The game plays a lot like X-Men Legends, or any other fast action, Super Hero vs. the world, button masher. There's a block button, jump, and combos. Coming off of FFXI, and a little WoW, this twitchy type combat is totally unfamiliar to me in an MMO setting.

Skill Trees - My character is a gadgeteer type(Like Batman) who carries a hand axe. At my second level I chose to take a grappel type weapon, which was cool to help pull guys at me and then kick their ass.

"Movement Mode" - When you're not in combat you can go in to movement mode and fly, run fast, etc. Compared to most MMOs, your character really hauls ass.

Kevin Conroy for Batman and Mark Hamil for the Joker = Win.

I haven't done anything cool in game yet, but I saw people shouting for a pick up group because Apparently Clayface was "up".

Runs great thus far, although after about 3 hours it locked up on me.

So far I haven't really seen any downsides. The only one might be that there's the standard repetitive nature of MMOs, but thus far it's not too bad. Batman will ask you to go kick 10 scarecrow goon's ass or something like that. Of course the first 3 hours of any MMO is good.

I sent an email to my old colleague to tell him, "Good Job" on the game thus far. He says he's been busting ass, but he also said he could probably get a few beta keys.

So, if anyone wants to try it out, let me know.

I'll send my homie an email in a few days depending on how many people want in and ask for that many keys. So long as he can get some, I'll try to hook you up.

Not sure. Saw a few different things pop up, but I believe this:

OS: Windows XP 32-bit
Processor: 2.4+ GHZ Dual Core Processor
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 30 GB of Free Hard Drive Space
Video: NVIDIA 7800GTX+ or ATI x1300+ Video Card

There's a PS3 version as well, but I don't know if that is in beta or not.

In the interview I read they stated it would only be for console, not for PC.
