"Age Of Conan: Hyborian Adventures"
Ever since first seeing this game I've wanted to get my hands on it. It looks amazing. With real combat and an intricate spell system, a whole range of crafting abilities, and some of the coolest looking classes, I think that Age Of Conan will have a lot to offer players. It's also good to see that they're releasing it both for DirectX 9 & 10; as to not alienate a good majority of the players at launch, but still allowing for the better graphical upgrade down the road. The game's produced by Funcom, and I've already signed up for the beta. I had a chance to beta test Anarchy Online for Funcom back in 2001, so I'm hoping they pick me again for this.  * Crosses Fingers *

"Across Hits Beta"
Well it's the dog days of summer and a raging heat wave has made things miserable. I'm trying to spend it inside, because I know the sun is trying to kill me, and hell, I gotta get through this beta.

Yes that's right, Across The Stars has entered the first round of beta testing, and I'm starting to see that there's still a lot of work to be done. During days like these it can seem a mountain to climb; but if I can weather it out I know I'll have a good game on my hands, at least for a text adventure, and we'll see. I've already entered it into the 13th Annual IF Comp and there should be forty plus games that it's going up against this year.

A few more beta tests, and we'll know if she has what it takes - D
