I am. I hear Beta isn't so hot, though.

Character customization isn't so great, feels clunky, not stable (thought that's from a stress test, so...), the shooting isn't tight.

I'm kind of immune to that, after many betas of other MMOs. I mean, there's something to be said for criticism and critiques, but some people just want to hate, and beta forums are a great place for that. However, I've done enough betas where I know beta to live isn't always some massive leap in quality or mechanics, so that's where I'm wary.

All that said, I just don't care until I play it. I want to try it. I get a Mercenaries vibe and that's enough for me:

Also, if anyone has MMO experience, RIFT was great, and the game is essentially RIFT meets Starship Troopers.

Here's a nice recent infopacket for ya:

That doesn't sound too bad. I was expecting gameplay/balance complaints. My main concern is why all the other MMO shooter projects fell through and this is the first one actually getting a release? If these games are possible on the 360 why are we only getting one at the end of it's life cycle?

I'm guessing it's SyFy's involvement. They're out of sci-fi franchises right now, this could be a great way to build one, and if they can make money on a game on the side, so much the better.

I haven't see a lot of Syfy shows, but I would play a game based on Alphas.
