Aion, Aion, AION!
July 31st marks yet another Beta event for NCsoft's much anticipated MMORPG, AION. If you were lucky enough to get a Beta code, you can join in on the fun, if not, you're gonna have to wait until the game comes out.
I finally got my beta code from NCsoft at San Diego Comic-Con, after having no luck at Gamestop with my pre-order.
I played Aion for a short time at the convention, and I liked what I saw. So I'll be playing this weekend and trying to see how much I can level up within that short window of time.
WoW wasn't very engaging for me, perhaps Aion will be a different story.
On my never ending quest to find an MMO that hooks me as much as Phantasy Star Online for the Sega Dreamcast did, Aion is looking like a strong replacement candidate. I'm willing to bet that the gameplay style, and design as well as the Asian influences in it's aesthetic will make Aion a winner.
See ya online!
