    I managed to sneak in an hour ago. Seems like it was just blind luck.

    Yep, just keep going through the loop and you'll get there in the end. Another beta signed up for I will never actually get in!

    Aye, took a good few goes before my registration stuck. Then I could sign up for the beta.

    I'm not going to feverishly wake in the middle of the night to check my gmail.

    I caught a comment on the forums that filling in both phone number sections helps. I managed to complete once I did that.

    Arg, was tempted until I remembered how the game looked. Can't stand it's graphical style at all, it's like they've tried to find a safe middle-ground between KoToR adult awesomeness, and the kiddies Clone Wars style, and ended up making everybody just look fugly.

    I actually cannot wait for this game! I really love Mass Effect and I think its going to be a 'WoW Killer'

    I had problems when trying to scan my PC when using Safari and Firefox so I tried IE and that worked after the 2nd time.

    Well I finally managed to get it to stick on "Yes I do want to be considered" tick box but not it keeps saying my contact details are incomplete. This does not bode well;)

    Indeed. Yesterday I've updated my details, ran the scan (which worked only after a Java update) yet when I tried to submit the results the site always returned me to the "become a tester" page. And on top of that each attempt to go through the process seemed to generate about 3 emails stating that my account info was changed.

    And now I can't even log in. Brilliant.

    Gah! Uttering this phrase should be an offence... public flogging sounds like suitable punishment.

    Anyhow, what are the first impressions? Is it yet another timesink with a Star Wars theme tacked onto it? Or does this one actually innovate compared to existing MMORPGs?
    And are the KotOR/ME comparisons justified or is any resemblance to those games superficial at best?

    I'm gettin a similar login issue to other peeps...but to be honest if they saw my pc specs they wouldn't want me to test it...i'm sure they don't need to know how crap it can run on an old piece of crap :p

    A little late to the party, but just to clarify.. this isn't a beta, it's game testing.

    i.e. playing through specific segments of the game over and over using pre-made characters to test different aspects of the game/servers. And of course, you won't be able to talk about the things you test without being sued.

    The beta is likely still a few years off.

    Usually developers would pay people to do this.. I guess they figure why bother when there's so many willing to do it, just for a chance to try the game?

    Ha, my contact details are apparently STILL incomplete except...they aren't.

    It's probably a good thing. If I'd been testing Dragon Age I'd have been constantly saying things like "So...I've got four choices ALL saying 'okay I will join the Grey Wardens' and none saying 'Hell no!! Fuck you guys, I am getting out of here!' " or "Drink Darkspawn blood?? FUCK YOU!!!!".

    Not completely sure why they bother with the ND on these games, as leaks pop up constantly.

    Interesting footage. Graphics look nice, cartoony but suitable, and combat looks reasonably pacy. All very... wowy... though. It's not a bad thing, of course, but very obvious.

    Some interesting screen caps of character creation (linked from the comments on vg247) with origin choices, races and body types mentioned. I like the look of that stuff very much.

    Lost interest in this when I found out the classes follow the standard mmo archetypes (healer, rogue and tank).

    Load, see the comments on that page for another link.

    I argee Figgis. That was a bit of a shock really, considering they specifically said that it wouldn't follow that format. Even so... looks cool... I'll struggle to resist at least trying it once.

    Be nice to try the beta rather than shell out for the full game.

    So, I'm now commenting out of the completely fictional belief that this game will be utterly adored when it is released. Some beta's have shit mechanics or tedious quests. This game might (possibly fictionally) have gotten all that right and it's just polish from here on in.

    Finish the game. 9/10's I say.
