Any requests? I'll try my best to make one this weekend.

I was going to do a breakdown video of:

Character Creation
Questing Methods
Combat Mechanics
Grouping

Can anyone get into the beta if they pre-order? I am on the verge of cancelling SWTOR so I may just pre-order this and see if the beta lives up to snuff.

In recent memory, betas so far have convinced me to buy BF3 (+), SWTOR (-), and avoid Diablo 3 (TBD).

Yes. If you pre-order than you get into all the Betas and headstart. Today's beta starts 12:00 p.m. PST. However Amazon pre-orders seem to be having an issue with getting beta keys out. I pre-ordered with En-Masse. Link below for additional information. Can I be DSLR's #1Tera FAN!?!?! j/k.

Be careful, that may cause you to post nekked pics to DSLR, then have Archivis post pics of your wife and say he's been banging her for a year, and shortly thereafter you ragequit DSLR.

Ephrata, PA? Wow I live near the King of Trolls. I'm a fan of your work. Tera seems to be adding movement and targeting to the MMO genre. You must target attacks and you must move to actually dodge attacks. No auto attacks.

I'll let you know after this weekend.

One of the interesting things about this combat system is that you have to actively block attacks (think Batman Arkham or Witcher 2) and you can't just tab-target to passively "lock on" to someone.

Whether those minor adjustments to MMO mechanics and the execution of the rest of the game are enough to set it apart remains to be seen.

Wow, you guys aren't far from me at all. Allentown here. Always interesting to find people close by.

Kris, I'll be looking forward to your report after the weekend. I'd preorder and jump in the beta this weekend if I wasn't going out of town. If its good though, I may jump in during the week.

Wifey is working 2nd shift this weekend so I'll be on pretty much 3-11 p.m. When she's home I get too much aggro and I won't do group related things as groups my suffer as I afk.

What's a good video editing program other than the Windows one?

Everyone says Sony Vegas Pro. I have it, but haven't had time to work out the kinks in it.

Doh....

Here's a flashback for you.....

Perhaps it was too much of the stuff Kwito was running around the office at Elink trying to figure out who left their bag of a particular thing in the bathroom?

And about 150 people who had to double check to make sure it wasn't them.

Vegas works great.

I liked Vegas, but I was having a problem with getting a separate Audio file to play with previously recorded video. I could add the audio file fine in the Windows Movie Maker, so for the project I was doing I needed speed vs. professionalism.

I'll eventually tackle it again once I get free time.

Adding a separate audio track in vegas is almost painfully easy for anyone who has ever even peeked at a NLE.

What do I know though? I did edit a two camera wedding without having external timecode or the luxury of a clapboard... Audio syncing manually! Then overrode the on-camera audio with a recording from the soundboard.
