    Wizardry Online

    There are about 300 beta keys left on MMORPG.com. It's an F2P MMO from SoE supposedly for the hardcore players. I'm downloading it as we speak.

    I'm not sure why they would put that in the official web page, but the game looks like if it were trying to emulate the looks of Korean games.

    Here is the official web page, I just singed up for the beta directly with my SOE account, lets hope they take on account my previous experience with their games.

    Wow. That seems incredibly lame.

    3 great reasons to play:
    1. Hardcore MMORPG Players Rejoice! (How is that a reason?)
    2. Avoid Permadeath!
    3. Amazing Anime Characters and Creatures!

    In the text at the bottom of the page:
    With the risk of permadeath always looming, players group with trusted allies to survive. Using skill based combat, and a little bit of luck, players battle to defeat amazing anime creatures, cheat death, and live to tell the world!

    ... What?

    Outdated graphics, and what seems to be hack'n'slash mmo. Wow. I'd go play vindictus... :S

    EDIT: This has to be a troll...

    Perma-death is sort of fun.

    It sure is, but when the website can't even tell us whether there's perma-death or not...

    I think it's based off an IP that's thirty years old, so...they're correct if you think about it in a really strange way?

    Played it a bit a while, ago, first 2 hours were enough to make me lose all interest. One of the worst intro's to a MMO I've ever experienced.

    Already deleted it. Talk about flushing good memories down the drain.

    Yes, there is permadeath, and the website does tell us. What part of that was ambiguous to you? Avoid permadeath? Yea, that kind of is the point- you don't really want to lose your character, although the danger of it does make things interesting. With the risk of permadeath always looming- this really seems like an explicit confirmation to me.

    And for the record, permadeath isn't a certain thing here either. When you die, you have 2 chances to earn your way back, at great personal (in-game) cost. Even when you survive, death is a really bad thing- chances are you'll have to sacrifice some of your good equipment.

    This'll definitely be a niche game, and the graphics aren't really the best, but it certainly looks interesting (coming from someone who got a key but hasn't had a chance to play yet). I'm looking forward to trying it- I miss games like FFXI and Everquest where death was a big deal.

    Are there things to do besides combat? If not, throw it on the body pile.

    Tried it for just a little bit today, and I'm really liking it so far. Sure, the graphics are outdated, but it's not that bad. I certainly don't mind the anime style- it kind of reminds me of FFXI, so I'm actually liking that. I'd give details, but the beta is under NDA.
