    Age of Conan - Hyborian Adventures

    Is there any feedback on how good the Age of Conan game is expected to be? Apparently there there are beta keys out there somewhere.

    I like the look of this one but may hold out for the WarHammer MMO instead, theres nothing like running around with a BFG as a Kick arse Space Marine :D

    Warhammer isn't that good, I've been in the Beta for a while and just can't get into the game. I know it's not a finished product but still hard to find that Groove, Conan seems to interest me more and I am keenly awaiting that one. Also the Stargate MMO interests me a lot :D

    I think Conan has too limited appeal for todays gaming market, unless you grew up with the books :D or at the very least saw Arnie doing his bit then I cant see al ot of gamers leaving the safety of established titles. I will continue to keep an eye on it and would love to hear more about it Hicks (of course after the NDA has been lifted :) )


    SGW now that is probably a whole different kettle of fish , I do want to see this one up close and personal :)

    Conan's main interesting feature is when you walk into a Tavern, everyone is reduced to the same lvl of skill with no weapons, this is so you can have fights in the pub and everyone can join in the fun. I just hope this is being left in the game :D

    Looking into it but it's a massive 32 GIG machine eater and that doesnt include the latest patches

    From what I have heard so far, I will probably buy this game this week. Seems a few guys I know are playing it and loving it.

    Mate I think the Spacial Edition sold out about a month before release, it's already broke the record for Pre-order for any game release......

    No we had 2 in store, no pre-orders on them at all. I did pick up the last 2 normal ones today for me and Tails. Love staff prices :D
