This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Anything you can share that doesn't violate the NDA?
  1. A robot may not harm a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
   2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
   3. A robot must protect its own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Don't know I just got the email and I'm at work so I can't do anything (but brag) about it.  I can say it's a Madd Max style setting that you drive around in cars causing destruction.  From what I've read it works like Guild Wars where there is a large persistant world but it's a lot of the 'in between parts' are random and instanced for you when you leave central hubs.  

Beyond that not sure what the NDA says or what I can even really tell until I start playing.

It is a very cool game.  With highly customizable vehicles.  I played a friends betatest and then applied myself but haven;t gotten in.

The hours have varied widely throughout the beta testing.  My friend told me that the hours you could logon would vary from week to week and even chnage daily sometimes.

Yeah the whole limited play hours is extremely annoying.  I hope that's temporary until they get fixed whatever it is they keep patching.  As it is now most of the hours would be while I'm at work.  Fortunately there is Saturday, should be a glorious day for assaulting some auto's.

Dear Bagpus.  I'm not sure if you are still having trouble downloading the program or not from the ftp site.  However if you are don't just dl the small auto_installer program.  Instead use an actuall FTP program like Flash or WS_ftp or any real FTP program and have it download the 700mb program.

I'm very curious to see how this one plays out.  It really strikes me like an MMO version of Master Blaster.  It's a very different game concept, that's for certain.
