Betaing Around The Bush: Wildstar Sidles Up

Behold! A sign-up page!

Brriiiiiing! Briiiiiiing! Briii-
“Hello, Alec Meer speaking.”
“Hello, is that Alec Meer?”
“Yes, that’s why I said ‘Alec Meer speaking’. God, why do people always do that?”
“Sorry, yes, it annoys me too. Alec Meer here too – you said I should give you a call.”
“You said you have so many half-forgotten interviews to transcribe that you needed to find some sort of fool-proof reminder system. This is it. When you sell RPS for $4 billion in 2027, you spent your share on a machine that could send phone calls back through time.”
“So this is your reminder to transcribe the Wildstar interview you did back in August.”
“What? Wait, that’s actually really useful. Thanks.”
“Oh, and if you post that beta sign-ups for the new NCsoft MMO are now open, that’ll further help you to remember. Bye!”
“Oh, that’s a very sensible idea.”
“Oh, and don’t play Duke Nukem Forever, it’s rubbish.”
“Hang on, I thought you said you were from the future?”
“Er… Gotta go!”

    I like my women like I like my temporal paradoxes: Fresh and delivered by Rock Paper Shotgun.

      No, wait…

    • Vexing Vision says:

      I like my comments like I like my women – punny and nonsensical with just a hint of paradoxic depth.

    • Lord Custard Smingleigh says:

      I like my women like I like my temporal paradoxes – Impossible to comprehend and capable of destroying all of space and time.

    • BoZo says:

      That’s all women Lord Custard.

    • Dances to Podcasts says:

      Writing comments on RPS is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First you think about it a lot, then you click the button and put it in. And in the end people aren’t very impressed.

  2. wcanyon says:

    Happy that they’ve started beta. Their website ran like ass on my phone tho. Seemed to be running a ton of js and railing my cpu.

  3. Koozer says:

    I read this while listening the the Back to the Future theme on Spotify. Coincidence? I think not.

  4. Gibush says:

    Wow. The art style is amazing. It makes me want to try it. The only problem is, I don’t know anything about it! The website has “Features” and “World” but it just says “Coming Soon”.

    I probably couldn’t run it, anyway.

    • Cerius says:

      Tim Cain (Fallout, Temple of elementary Evil) worked on it for like 4 years.

      Good Start?

    • Gibush says:

      Oh, I thought it was one of those dime a dozen Asian FTP MMO’s. Is this one free to play?

  5. magnetic says:

    Wow, $4 billion! In 2027 that will be worth like £500 or something!

    • InternetBatman says:

      That’s only because the pound is artificially fixed to the galleon and gold prices keep on skyrocketing.

  6. Raiyan 1.0 says:

    Glad to have you back, Alex. :)

  7. outoffeelinsobad says:

    Looks like Sky Doll. I approve.

  8. llfoso says:

    So…where is this interview?
