    From what I gather it's in closed beta?

    This topic is sorta pointless then, the majority of people don't wanna wait for a game, and when they do, they forget.

    I tried this game a while ago. It looks good however it is still a tech demo and not much to do except for chatting and collecting gems. I have the website bookmarked and whenever (and i emphasize whenever) they release the public beta i will try it again.

    on another note why do they do direct x, 3dfx, and software rendering. open gl is good enough isnt it. i always thought 3dfx was old and obsollete and software rendering isnt capable of doing the basic level rendering of modern games. and direct x is just evil. it is only usable on a windows platform. if they are already doing opengl shouldnt that be good enough for all os's?
