Ok... just got done playing for a few hours (am only off because I crashed )... made it to level 17 (start at 15) and it is pretty nice. I love how if you want to do a quest you don't HAVE to find a group... you can get NPCs to help you with the quest which is nice. I also love how you leave footprints so you know when you are running in circles.

I'd buy it for this simple reason:

I'm a level 15 (still) Ranger/Wizard (I think) called Profion Mirrorshade.

Profion - evil guy from the DnD movie (crappy movie, but it was funny/interesting in a cheesy sort of way)
Mirrorshade (Bentley) - level 25+ illusionist/thief gnome from baldur's gate 1, owned the bar at the Friendly Inn Keep (or w/e it called)

Talk about a wierd way of marketing..
2-3 day tests? What are they thinking?
And the game doesnt even come out until the 2nd month of 2005!
Why not have a test for the gaming community a little closer to the release date? It only makes sense, with hl2, eq2, wow and all the other stuff that is coming out, i dunno, it just seems odd to me.

Wow this is crazy, I just downloaded and started playing it... I thought it would be an all night download. It took less than 5 minutes

I guess its because it downloads areas as you get to them, so it makes it easier to deal with.

I like this, im going to play it some more tomorrow

BTW, it looks pretty nice considering how fast it downloads and how smooth it runs (with bloom on).

Can someone post some screenshots please? The ones on the website look like cutscenes or cinematic shots to me.

Woah! It looks amazing even on my Radeon 9000. 1280x960 w/ 16xAF runs smooth as silk! The whole game just flows better than it did back at E3. When is the release date?

February 2005. Don't have an estimated date yet, but I think their timing will be very good because by that time, a lot of us will probably be Halo 2 and Half-Life 2'd out.

I've been playing this pretty solid and I'm having a blast. I can't wait for this game to come out. Seeing how the product evolves over the next couple of months as they do more beta events should be very interesting. Now if I can just figure out how to upgrade my weapons/get new ones, I'll be happy. Apparently, no one sells plain weapons; you have to craft 'em. Once I get that figured out, that'll be awsome, but until then, it sucks - I still have the weapon I started w/and I'm lvl 16.
