Gods and Heroes Beta Testing This Week

I am going to participate in the closed beta for the new Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising, a new MMO being developed by Heatwave Interactive. I created my first character last night and was kind of impressed with the character creation process. It was very detailed oriented and you could customize facial features really well. I will keep everyone updated on the beta testing and give other thoughts about questing and gameplay. I need to see if it's okay to post screen shots of the game, so as soon as I find out I will post the screen shot of my character.

I'm entering month two without World of Warcraft, but it's nice to pick up a new MMO and help the developers come up with a great game. Will Gods and Heroes be another "WoW killer?" No, I don't think so. The concept, however, is neat for me because I absolutely love Roman mythology and have studied classics for several years now.

I will say one thing though. The UI is very familiar. Even the keybindings. I was able to instantly get acclimated to that aspect of the game.

I'll play a bit more tonight and write an update!

I just wanted to share this. It's absolutely hilarious.
