Damn it, I want to be stealthy and not say anything.  Sadly I wasn't chosen to be stealthy and silent...you know, in case anyone else has a key that would allow me to be silent/stealthy....

Yes, it does, as you're not supposed to even say if you're in the beta or not, or anything about the game, if there's even a game to talk about.

Depends if it's the truth or not. I would sue, as it wouldn't be.

Hmmm.... interesting looking game.

You know, if someone wouldn't mind accidently hitting the PM button and telling me their thoughts on what the game might be like, (based strictly on conjecture of course), that would be cool.

stupid NDA.  I guess since they don't want people talking about the game then it must suck and they don't want to lose any pre-orders by people finding out it sucks beforehand.  If they want to prove me wrong they will be lifting the NDA right.... about.....now.

the Core 2 Duo tends to trip up system detectors.  I've had install programs tell me my 2.13 isn't good enough to run games yet they run perfectly.

Yeah, but they didn't use a detector, they used a drop down menu system...

And here's a preview of the beta over at Gaming Nexus:

Quote
I'm at level eight right now, and it's got some promise -- I've played almost every game Richard Garriott released over the years -- but I'm not sure there's any way they could release Tabula Rasa this year.  There are too many bugs and too many things need ironing out that I think it will be tough to have a good launch before the end of the year.   

I'm enjoying the game a lot though.  I really like the real-time strategy aspect of taking territory away from the Bane(the bad guys in the game).  But it's currently very buggy and rather frustrating that we aren't able to get a feel for some of the back and forth so far.  I dig the run-and-gun style, but it feels a lot like Auto Assault.  What do you think?

---

Additionally, slow spawn times are creating some serious campgrounds in areas.  I had to pitch a tent in the cave below Pinhole Falls in order to nab my quota of flying, two-tentacled octopus creatures.  I do like how the enemy is constantly dropping in, knockin' on the front doors of the bases, though -- even popping up inside of the walls.  Keeps the bullets flying, even when you're in a "safe zone."  Also, the methods behind the spawning seem more natural here, too.  Instead of creatures just reappearing out of thin air, they're beamed down from dropships, they're hitting the ground and bounding out of dense woodlands, they're pulling themselves up from underground.  Yes, they're still "spawning," per se, but at least an effort's being made to make them do more than just "blink" into existence.

Why am I quoting these sections of the article? I can't say. It is a good read though.

EDIT: As to why there's a preview like this out there? This is why (from the article):

Quote
The gag order for talking about Tabula Rasa has relaxed somewhat, but overly-technical specifics about the gameplay (and anything but official screenshots) are still under wraps as the dev team deploys their bug exterminators, and generally continues to implement changes here and there through the beta period.

The difference between the previous patch and the one that went out yesterday is night and day.  It is one of the very reasons that it is hard to 'judge' any MMO until release - even then the next 6 months should bring about change that can alter the game significantly. 

I'd tell you what my character's name is but we only get to play on Tuesday and Thursday so I can't log in. slywink

Due to the vileplanet beta, you can play for the next 10 days in a row or so. Unless the newcomers are using a different server anyway. biggrin

I can no longer play. I deleted it to get the new beta version. I download the installer and when I try to run it, halfway through the cab extractions it reboots me. EVERY time no matter what. Ive tried multiple times, downloaded the installer multiple times, and tried the alternate installer recommended on their forums and it still reboots me. I gave up. No tabula Rosa for me.
