Default Vindictus - Awesome hack'n'slash online RPG

So what do you get when combining these elements:
-Combat system akin to Devil May Cry
-RPG and quest structure ala Monster Hunter
-Online structure similar to online RPGs
-Physics for just about everything
-A mysterious NPC which is a talking cat in disguise
-An armor set called "sweetie bear"

You get awesomeness! And probably the best online RPG ever created. *throws spoons at WoW*

I've got a video recorded of the game here:


It is a bit buggy and it has some lag issues, but considering it's in closed beta right now, I think that's excusable. It goes into open beta around 6th October so people interested should check it out then. It is limited to US and Canada right now and it uses an evil IP block if people elsewhere try to access it, but you can do fancy proxy stuff to get around that. People can ask me if they want help with that.

not violent enough, I need more action... why can't you kill something while resting or why can't you kill something while running from one monster to the next...

I added that music myself, since the game usually has no music during dungeons.

Well, it is a beta afterall. They're up to episode 7 on the Korean version, and 3 classes will be added down the road, so there's plenty of content incoming.

I'd like to try out the open beta, but I'm getting an "Authentication Failed" error trying to log in. Is anyone else getting this?
