    I try to keep up on the upcoming MMO games, though to be honest I probably won't be getting into any of them. I know Asheron's Call 2 will be out pretty soon, and the one I might play - City of Heroes - is a ways off. Based on previous experiences with Diablo 2, I'm not holding my breath to see World of Warcraft anytime soon.
    Having said all that, I thought Galaxies was going to beta earlier this summer? Anyone know if that happened? If the gameplay was good and the price was right, I'd have to at least consider giving this one a try.

    I wanted to sign up too. Is there still a prayer of getting in?

    Kelley, are you a beta tester? Either way, have you heard much about the game? I figured it would be followed pretty closely but I'm not hearing much about it at all. Also, what's the current target release date?

    It's a very small closed beta at this time. They just entered beta 2 and will be adding more people in waves. Starting out with the same hundred folks and ramping up to filling one server (5,000 peeps?)

    After that would be a beta 3 or 4 that would be the one most anyone else could get into.

    This is the beta for the PC version I assume? Not the PS2 or XBox versions.

    Here is a link to the official website. This game is being followed very closely. Ive been waiting for over a year and following this site. The release is sometime in December.

    I really doubt SW:G is going to make a December release date.

    It doesn't seem likely that it will see a december release date when its only just entered into beta 2. I would guess a march/april release like EQ had.

    My English teacher's husband is in on the beta. She's told me all about the game and it sounds really cool. If my PC was good enough, I'd try to get into it, but I'll probably wait for the PS2/XB versions.

    I think he's been in it since the beginning. She wants to get into the beta so she can start an account and everything, but for now she has to wait.
