Anyone try/buy this game yet? I was in the beta and compared to the old City of Heroes, I thought it was better. I like the rapid click-action to perform moves, keeping the user attentive while thinking there is more action than just clicking spells and buttons in a regular mmorpg. I like the familiar actors they used for the voice acting and the mentor-hero setup. For what few quests I did, they seemed varied and fun. I don't have a lot of bad things to say about it from my limited experience.

Anywho who played the beta extensively and/or purchased it Tuesday?

The game is very fun, but holy crap is the UI terrible. Then again, I'm playing the trial on the PC version. Since the game mirror's the PS3 version, I'm really not too surprised.

Say hello to Wayland.

I've been burned too many times and for as complex as an MMO can be, I simply can't play them inside 3 months of release. I'm tempted but I'll stay away. GW2 is about the only mmo I'm looking forward to and that I think can pull off an entire new world with relative smoothness of launch. Keep us in the know with your likes and dislikes - if it turns out to be worthwhile it might pull me away from WoW until gw2 is out.
