And, Im very excited to say that we are now opening the OnLive Beta to outside gamers who signed up on our website. Its not too late to sign up if you havent already. We are very much looking forward to hearing from gamers all about their experience with the OnLive Service.

But first, let me tell you a little bit about OnLive Beta and how we are rolling it out.

One of the key challenges that OnLive technology addresses is providing a high-quality, fast-response gaming experience over a wide range of situations: different speeds/locations/types of broadband services, a variety of different PC and Mac configurations, several kinds of input and display devices, etc. So, a major focus of OnLive Beta is to test as many of these different situations as we can.

Age of Conan Beta Review Part 3

Submitted by: jamesjimmy @ 08:10 PM | Friday, May 9, 2008 | (url: http://bittdaily....)

Your basic initial attack is fire, sound familiar? It's not. I was thinking "big deal, another fire mage" nope.

Age of Conan Beta After 24 Hours

Submitted by: jamesjimmy @ 03:32 AM | Tuesday, May 6, 2008 | (url: http://bittdaily....)

I rolled myself a Priestess of Mitra. So lets start with character creation. Overall I thought the variety of options for customizing my character was quite high. I wont say Im in love with the final product. I guess guys will be thrilled with the ability to make a hot body for the female avatars. I was not so thrilled with my best efforts to make a cute face. I realize this is not a huge issue, I am merely providing feedback in the order in which I experienced each aspect. I know the Hyborian life was a tough one so the people probably werent overly cute anyway. This was only cosmetic and not a big deal.
