"stab myself in the face"

That's exactly what I feel like doing whilst playing WoW atm, gonna check this out this week when the next CBT opens.

I'm going to prepurchase from NC this afternoon, assuming you're happy without a box the price is pretty good compared to EB (about $75 for CE vs $120 from EB). I'm just hoping the beta key delivery is all online and fairly instant, I want to have it downloaded and be ready to go for this weekend.

Was discussing it on Vent last night and quite a lot of the non-downies in my WoW guild are interested in trying it as well so it should be a blast.

Seems pretty polished for a beta. I was invited for the first beta weekend and have participated in both events so far.

Even though I probably will be playing an Elyos on release, playing an Asmodian last event was surprising fun. Count me in for any Aussie guilds.

Where's everyone else preordering from (if applicable)?

I'll probably jump on this as soon as its released.
It's looking great. I was a heavy Guild Wars player and this looks a lot like a pumped up version of GW.

Whats the verdict guys? I havn't heard much feedback from the beta testers.

It's very asian. That's the only "downside" at the moment. All the voices and animations are very "japanime" if you like.

It's a little annoying to have your character squeal like a little oriental school girl everytime she casts a spell. That said, it's an English remake of a Korean game so if you're not into asian stuff then some little things like this will bug you. It doesn't detract from the actual gameplay much it's just a little nit picky really.

I hope they redo all the voices still. So far the actual localization has been pretty good. The graphics are solid, being an MMO you can't go too overboard. It's based on the old Crysis engine so naturally it's better most MMOs.

Can't wait for this beta weekend - really keen to keep trying it out.

Aion is first generation CryEngine. First generation CryEngine was used for Far Cry 1.

Crysis is second generation CryEngine.

The standard between the two is pretty distinct when CryEngine 2 makes you wet your pants.

Same shit different smell. I got the names mixed up . It's based on the Far Cry engine, not too shabby.

Hey if we buy a local copy, would it be tied to the US servers or the EU servers?

NCSoft usually market game releases in Australia as part of the EU group. Guild Wars and CoH both set me in the EU region until i changed them to North American servers.

With that said i'm still a bit on the sidelines on whether to play Aion or not. The visuals dont phase me all that much. and open pvp everywhere.... whoopeedoo. i've had my fair share of open pvp everywhere. its not my taste.
