    Anyone else playing this? I pre-ordered to get into the beta. Regretting it now though. One of those games with a very flashy UI and stuff but very little in the way of combat mechanics or animations.

    I like some of the stuff they are doing, like only being able to pick up a few missions at a time, focuses you on whats going on in those particular stories but it means you are running around for aaaaages back and forth to the same couple of folk.

    You do get to fight Cathulu at one point, and some of the modern day myth stuff is pretty cool. I just can't seem to get in to it.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    I had a friend say exactly the same. Just couldn't get into it and ultimately turned it off after a couple of hours

    Cathulu? Is that Cthulhu's sister?

    I think editing has gone to Pete's head... he seems to be correcting people a lot now

    I was the same with Secret World. Got into the beta, and by "got into" I mean I was given access to it, but even after a couple of hours playing it I couldn't actually "get into it". Looks lovely, and I really DID love wandering around London and going "ooooh that's nice!" but as far as gameplay is concerned, I just couldn't get it.
    Oooooooh it's an invisible signature... oooooooooh!!
    "If you want me to 'act professional', I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    Halloween necrooooo. I'm going to give this another go. See if they've improved it in any way. Anyone fancy giving it a go?

    I've bought it when it was on sale last summer, enjoyed it a lot so far. I'd fancy a game, but I'm very busy lately and I'm not sure how long it'll take to get internet at the new place. But yeah, wonderful MMO, especially the Spy missions where you actually have to solve puzzles and think, instead of WoW-like "Kill 20 Squirrles and bring me their nutsacks."

    The stories are great, too. But I'm a Lovecraft fanboy, so yeah...

    Mrs Blucey played this shit for a while.

    It looked wack as fuck but she sort of liked it. She loves that MMO shit though.
