There are my top 10 reasons to play! Ofcourse you might be saying to yourself, 'Alucard, you just picked the skankiest pics and put them here'. And to that I'll say, 'Nay! There are many more....'

Anyway, if you want to see the rest of the 29 pages or whatever it was of pics, and read up info, check out videos, blahblah, heres the site for it.

And for you lucky BASTARDS in America, heres the official site where you can slap your name down right now for a beta test place. Game SHOULD be out in the next couple or so months.

What is most amazing to me is that this game runs on a modified version of the Unreal engine and that there are no loading "zones" in the entire game. I'm really curious to see how they will deal with lag if thats the case.

Oh and yes, elven wenches in underwear is always good.

You know I been eyeing this game for a while now. I even checked out some trailers on gametrailers.com yesterday. Alucard maybe you can answer this, why is it in these types of games characters and cameras seem to jerk around?

Thats to do with lag. Depending on the persons connection speed and also how much is happening on the screen at once, ie 30 players around in a town area, people will get lag spikes. You'll see them jolt now and then.

Should be ok. these games are designed for 56k connection. Ofcourse you'll get pwned no matter what if theres a zillion people on screen. Fastest way to fix that is to drop your graphic detail down in towns or something if your system isn't super spiffy. You should be ok for most of the game though.

No need for horse. You can have these cool beasts or Dragons for traveling. They're actually quest items. You breed them from eggs and they get bigger and stronger. They can even fight for you aswell. So its very cool.

Heres another reason to play the game!!

Ok, I dont really know much about Lineage 2. But Im looking to get into 1, maybe 2 pay to play MMORPGs. And you seem to like this game a whole lot Alucard. So what is it exactly that you like about it and how does the game play?

Playing 2 might not be a good idea spiff. Once you start on one you spend hours and hours each day playing it and nothing else. They're addictive as hell, and not like normal games.

Alot of things interest me about this game. The look is the first thing as the character models are awesome. The castle seiges are another very cool aspect. The character system is also cool, where once you reach a certain level you can branch off onto a slightly different style of character, ie one who casts spells more or heals more or attacks more etc. Theres alot to like. Just go to the main website, and also do searches for more info, especially at the site I keep posting up, and you'll get heaps of info. This one and FFXI are the ones to play this year.

Ummm, I have an objection to the right around the corner remark... I've seen a little bit of the US Closed Beta ((which their still in by the way)) and while it does run a smooth silk, who ever they got to do the text translations for the NPC names AND actual interactions must have been on crack at the moment, point in case, in one quest your supposed to met this guy, Darin, well apparently he went and got a G adding on to his name and lower cased the begining of his name (daring) any ways, it doesn't stop there because he wants you to deliver a letter to Roxxy, Roxanne is apparently her name actually. Now yoursaying, hey Ren. thats just one quest, sorry, every NPC seems to have their name miss spelled, Guide Lancelot apparently likes to Cancel because he's now named Guide Canelot. I know this stuff can (hopefully be easily changed) but it's gonna be a while before we see Lineage 2 on shelves, Sorry to bust the party, but good news is, it's a heck of a lot better than any other Fantasy MMORPG out there today.
