Practice Lap

Remember when we talked about Empire of Sports, the upcoming athleticism-based MMO? No, of course you don’t. You never remember anything. Bet you’ve even forgotten when our birthdays are, haven’t you? You heartless monster.

Man. Stats. Man-stats.

Anyhoo, the beta’s just started. Yes, today. It’s happening right now. You’re missing it – hurry! Five sports are in there already – tennis, basketball, skiing, bobsleigh, track & field and bear-baiting – and this free closed trial is running until early next year. Limited places unfortunately, but mention Rock, Paper, Shotgun and you’re guaranteed to… have exactly the same odds of getting in as if you hadn’t. Where? Here.

    Not sure what I did to get this, but has anybody else noticed what the Deus Ex 3 text link at the top of the page says?

  4. Cigol says:

    Alt-text if the image doesn’t show :D Classic.

  5. Mike says:

    Are there RP servers where you can flaunt out of drugs tests, though?

  6. TedTheShred says:

    Well, I signed up, but there is no link for a client or anything. Is it that I’m too late?

  7. Saul says:

    Bear-baiting? Really? Sometimes I’m ashamed to be human.

  8. Jim Rossignol says:

    No, not really.

  9. Saul says:

    Well, you got me. I wouldn’t put it past some American developers, tho.

  10. Janek says:

    It’s lucky they’re French, then.

  11. Saul says:

    Ah well, we better watch out for the old guillotine-the-croissant game, then.
