Fury Beta Signups

Fury Beta Signups are now underway, as closed testing for Auran's upcoming action/RPG will commence on July 6:
BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA – JUNE 29, 2007 – What is War without Fury? The Age of Fury is drawing ever closer and players wishing to unleash their competitive spirit can sign-up now at the Auran Closed Beta registration page [http://www.unleashthefury.com/beta/signup.php]. The first phase of Closed Beta testing is scheduled to commence at 3pm PST Friday July 6th. Invitations for players who have already registered will start being sent out in the coming days, so keep checking your inbox to see if you have made the cut. We’re expecting thousands of new players so make sure you keep your calendar clear for next weekend.

Gone are the days of level grinding and countless hours spent wandering the barren terrain of your typical “MMO.” Fury is a fast-paced, online, player versus player game that blends the speed and excitement of a First Person Shooter with familiar MMORPG combat and character advancement. From the minute you log in, Fury keeps the action flowing at breakneck speeds, never letting up and pushing you to your limits. This Closed Beta version includes 3 game types, a new Tutorial, new vendor areas, new gameplay balance and a host of bug fixes and tweaks.

This is your chance to get an edge on the competition. The Dev Team is already hard at work adding the finishing touches to the Open Beta version, where players can look forward to significant performance and graphics improvements, loads of new content and major updates to the game economy. So what are you waiting for? Fury is a game of skill, not brute force, twitch or time played – the only way you’ll succeed is by mastering the game itself. Here’s your chance to become a master before anyone else. Are you up to the challenge?

Jerykk beat me to it.


How can you hail the Wii? Listen, I was one of the absolute biggest Wii supporters here pre-launch. But when the "secret of the Wii" was disclosed I became a bit concerned. Motion-based gaming didn't sound like fun in most situations.

Now that I have a Wii? It's true. Motion-based gaming is a bit of a fad and isn't ideal for traditional games. Which is why there are next to no traditional games on the Wii.

The Wii is not a revolution. The Wii is an endless stream of terrible minigame collections, most of which repeat. If you have Wii Sports and Wario Ware you already have all the content in nearly every Wii game. And I do have those two games. I haven't touched the Wii in months. Months! Since St. Patrick's Day, to tell you the truth. There's been no reason. Overpriced VC games that I already own and would rather play on a save-anytime emulator don't draw me in. Minigames don't draw me in. Smash Brothers will, but that's being designed around the Gamecube controller!


How can you compare an endless stream of minigame collections to Gears of War, Dead Rising, The Darkness, Overlord, etc? How are those more about graphics than gameplay?
