    Tera Online is getting some enthusiastic discussion here and there. Apparently you have manually target a la an FPS, and the graphics are getting good reviews.

    There are some gameplay videos and screenshots in this thread, and, in the same thread, a detailed review of the first closed beta.

    Game goes live on May 1st, subscription fee like WoW and SWTOR.

    The skill requirement for targeting has me intrigued. Apparently the fifth and final closed beta weekend started today, accompanied by a wipe of all previous beta characters.

    I won't be doing anything until mid-May anyway (final exams on the 14th and 15th), but it sure would be nice to find a summer game that comes close to the enjoyment that WoW once provided.

    Another idiosyncrasy: there are no factions, so on a PvP server I guess it's dog-eat-dog.

    I pulled the trigger on the CE download. I figure it's worth another $30 to find a game that will entertain me during the summer break. This and D3 will get the big tryouts, and I have Skyrim waiting in the wings.

    No GW2?

    That's definitely in play and might even wind up being "the one," but there's no release date, and speculation says Christmas.
