You Can Play Rift For Free, Now
For a week, anyway. There's a 7-day trial up on the main Rift site, which allows you to play the dimension-bleeding fantasy MMO for no pennies. I've still not got around to dabbling, but I understand from Dan's review, and also from a few of you lot who are playing, that it's one of the more interesting takes on the MMO business of late (despite some issues with the big public events...)
Anyway, go take a look!
