A Post for the Gamers
Y'know, the World of Warcraft beta testing period started a few days ago. Although I registered, I was not invited. I think I heard around 400,000 people applied, and I doubt they'll use more than a couple thousand testers.

But in the meantime, the City of Heroes beta testing has been going on for a couple months. Between Monday and April 7th, they'll invite all their pre-order customers to join the beta. With any luck, I'll get my invite sooner than later. I need a good MMO in my life.

Is there anyone else who's interested in these two games? Or am I just a super-dork?

Current Mood: dorky dorky
Current Music: Splender - Yeah Whatever

Oh, I'm dying to play City of Heroes, Frye... er, Jarrett. But I'm afraid I'll have to break into the Pentagon to get a computer capable of running it.

According to them, you need an 1.7 Ghz machine, 512 Mb of RAM, and at least a GeForce4 Ti or a Radeon 8500.

They don't even sell GeForce4 cards anymore. The next generation, the GeForce FX series, starts at around $100.

And those are just the "recommended" specs. They say it's still playable with an 800 Mhz machine, 256 Mb of RAM and a GeForce2.

You don't even need to know my opinion of these two games.

Yeah, but I'm using 3 timex sinclairs series thruogh a Brother Word proccessor with an abacus hardwired to it. I'm supposed to buy a car in the next couple of weeks... but I might also look into have someplace "frankenstien" me a new computer. I SO love superhero games. If it works right, maybe we could team up?

I'm trying to get the hookup to the WoW beta, but either way I'll be playing it on release. :-D

Cool, maybe we can hang out on the same server.

I think I'm going to be in the Alliance. Either Human or Night Elf, I think.

Warcraft can sustain my stiffy for hours on end.
