    Ok, so, with AoC out now, sort of, I'm wondering if I should give it a shot. Anyone here played it yet? Any details/gamer perspectives? Will it beat out WoW?

    I'm wondering this too this is some of what press has to say about it:

    It's a dirty, sweaty, decadent universe filled with mighty heroes, hateful villains and all sorts of cool stuff to see. Let the bloodletting begin!

    - GameSpy

    Conan wins Best of E3 from IGN

    - IGN, Best of E3 2007

    Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures awarded Best Online Game at GC

    - GC 2007, Best Online Game

    Conan takes another at GC, with the Online Media Games Award!

    - GC 2007, Online Media Games Award

    The combat is amazing, with fast action and lots of blood! No more boring combat with this massive online game!

    - WinMagazine, Italy

    Ten Ton Hammer awards Age of Conan Best PvP Experience at GC 2007

    - TTH, Best PvP Exp, GC 2007

    Combat as a whole is looking to be a new defining standard for online gaming, and perhaps PC role-playing titles in general.

    - Hyper Magazine, Australia

    This is the new era of massive online games! We can't wait to play it again.

    - PC Jeux, France

    This is the most anticipated massive online game in development right now.

    - Micromania, Spain

    Let's be honest: we're looking forward to this like little school girls!

    - PC Player, Denmark

    This is the game that will break the mold!

    - PC Juegos, Spain

    This was all found on Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures

    Also gamespot.com is having a 3 hour live gameplay marathon may 23 at 6 pm PT.

    Heres the link:

    Finally got the damn game to work!

    So far I love it. Its tough getting in the city
    (cant just walk in) but that makes it more fun to me. The collision detection is a little wierd tho after playing WoW.

    The single player missions at night are cool because it is like the first movie where he was a thief.

    Well, the old adage, you get what you pay for really applies. I don't even waist my time with "free" mmo's any more. They are either, horrible waists of time, or advertisement platforms to get you to buy something. I'd rather be upfront with my gaming and pay for the service I actually want. However, free trials are always a plus. I don't think AoC has one yet, but I can't wait!
