http://www.gamespot.com/test/ageofconan/

I know some of you on this forum are interested in this new mature online game.. so here is your chance to try it out!

And now for the bad news.. you have to register at GameSpot and win an entry.

D'oh! That's not an open beta... And I'm busy that weekend aswell, double-d'oh!

I'm actually looking forward to this anticipated game, made by the Norwegian game developer company Funcom.

Has some great music as well. Some voiced by Helene Bøksle (who has an amazing voice).

Here are some songs from the website

Sounds like the music from Planet Side!

(Actually, that brings back some of my fondest gaming memories. I don't know why, but I loved that game back in the day!)

Blah effort. Count me out on this then.

PS : Read their worthless forums and wonder about how "mature" the game populance is really gonna be. Xp

Registering took 2 minutes! I used my spam address, so I don't mind if they want to contact me with fancy newsletters.

And the picture after registering is very nice :-o I wish I could get her on my desktop.

I changed my mind and signed up a while ago (60 year old from Estonia, my email is the most you'll get out of me!) and got promptly annoyed because the sign up form was broken (u must register hurr durr cousin bob broked interweb wait a bit while we shout at it) for a day or so.

Id make a poll thread to see if a) anybodys gonna play, b) on which prefered region (EU/US) and c) what type (PVE, PVP, RP-PVP), not anonymous for obvious reasons, so we could probably get a loosely guildish thing going like in Guild Wars but looking at my Thread making history most of em where horrible failures and stupid so im afraid >_<

I myself will be playing on a PVP server (possibly roleplaying.. but who knows). Which region will be difficult for me. I know a few people this side that will possibly be joining AoC plus i also would like to purchase the Collectors Edition .

PVP, can play US/EU (would prefer EU tho :p).

About the RP, i think i already have a character figured, Legolas Aragorn Starchild Trueshot my night elf assassin he has an enchanted bow called Blugudufufu'z which can see into the future so he never misses and he has a really troubled past because he was an orphan he is also very emotional and deep and has trouble making friends but if he does hes very loyal and hes married to Galadriel Flowerhead Shitdribbles (PS : If you play female toon and wanna marry me ingame msg plz) and his parents were wolfes and he is on a quest to avenge blablablaaaaa

Eh shouldnt be too hard to pull some make believe stuff out of my ass, but if there arent breathers and you get jumped by the RP gestapo each time you dont say "thou" ill pass.

Registering to Gamespot had a (expected) mine: It automatically subscribes you to their newsletter, without giving a chance to opt out when registering.

At least you could unsubscribe afterwards...

Wot! I though you were going for Priest or at least a Mage class... if i see Legolam Greenleaf my assassin will have to stab someone a few times, in the eyes.

And no, Hyboria isn't Britannia.. so no "Art Thou's" and all that stuff.

That was supposed to be a bad example. >_<

Assassin, so lame. They should make the class extra good at hiding but extra poor at spotting so when everyone makes one at launch they can sneak after their own dumb asses all day long without finding something ????

You get a lot with the collectors edition.
Didn't have an account, just checking if I can now. Might just buy it if you think it's worth it after playing the beta lads.

Well calling the class rogue would be too much like all the rest of the fantasy MMORGPs out there. They need something to set themselves apart.

They said they're staggering the e-mails. Even if you're accepted, you might not get the notice until tomorrow.

On a relevant note, the beta got extended by another 24 hours.

It also has the advantage of nobody being able to misspell it as "rouge".

Actually, there is a Rogue class in Age of Conan. The Assassin, Barbarian and Ranger falls under this.

Yay, I got the beta key e-mail.

"There are four downloads totaling 6.9GB waiting for you."

Now, since I absolutely despise all MuhMORPuhGuhs, I wonder how this one will stack up.

Yeah, like your average english malhandler gamer can actually pull off "assassin" correctly? Instead of "rouge", you have "asassin", "assasin" etc...

I'm going to create an assassin with an emphasis on kick attacks.

Need a good nickname for it, though.

Nuttin either. Should have trusted my "Dont sign up for crap" instincts in the first place.

Four downloads totaling 6.9 GB? Ive read elsewhere that it would be a totally humongous download, about ~30GB. I had a lot of snide remarks prepared regarding game download services, now i have to send em to the salt mines never to be seen again.

Did you have to sign some NDA disclosure stuff? Can they link you from Gamespot to here? Because if not, secret knowledge and pictars plox

"asassin", "assasin" etc...
Thats way less gay than someone saying "My rouge" tho.

MY ROUGE CAN BEAT YOU *puffle* TAKE THIS *wristslap* OH you *huff*

So, nobody else has gotten into the PvP beta yet?

There's an NDA, but does that stop me from saying, "It's a MuhMORPuhGuh, and therefore it is awful."?

Have to wait until Friday at 1600 hours EST, either way.
