Well a beta is now opening up for Miner Wars, a space sim mmo. This is something i've been incredibly excited for (well any space sim shooter gets me excited, since they're so rare these days). It's got everything I could ever want, destructable terrain, indoor and outdoor space combat, huge asteroids to mine and fight around. Should be a blast.
Problem is the easiest way to get into the beta is through a rather annoying affiliate program, get 250 people to click your link and you're in. So I've started up a link trade thread over in the miner wars forum if anybody is interested. I'll be clicking on any link posted there. :D
This post is just for the quest reward, BUT here's hoping I continue writing in it.
Who misses space sims? I know I do, there's a bunch of MMO style projects in the pipes Black Prophecy and Jumpgate Evolution being the most prominent i've been looking forward to. Eve Online isn't quite what I'm looking for, I like that game in theory everything I hear about the game is badass. Problem is once I start playing it gets pretty boring pretty fast, the combat just isn't engaging to me and it takes a colossal effort to get anything cool :\. I look at Eve online as the Ultima Online of space sim mmos, yeah it's cool you can do all of this stuff but when 3/4 of it is so boring, what's the point.
