Here we effin' go!

Aw dang, check out the big brain on Torchlight Frontiers! First the game teases us with forts, which get to be our homes in the wilderness, sparking immediate appeal for those of us who appreciate having a home adjacent to the wilderness. Then it announces that it will start its alpha testing on November 16th, pleasing everyone who writes lists like this and wants to be ready for new games entering testing.

Also, you know, actual alpha testers. Never mind, let’s just move on and cover some other beta news from the week, shall we?

There. Are we done? No, we have our full weekly list just below, because that’s also what we do here. Notice something that shouldn’t be down there? Let us know so we can address it! Also let us know about your thoughts on beta news or about the betas you’re playing. The usual stuff, you know.

As always, we consider an MMO to be in open testing if it features free, public signups and will server wipe prior to launch. An MMO is marked in closed testing if it’s running a private test phase that cannot freely be accessed by the general public; it’s usually under NDA as well. Early access and crowdfunded MMOs whose tests we deem legitimate will be included. So-called “open beta” soft-launch MMOs with cash shops, no sign of launch in the west, or limited interest for our readers will not be listed; we also do not list expansions, with occasional exceptions.

I am watching the interwebs for a good sale on a Oculus Rift, and if they hit a sweet spot where I can rationalize it to myself, I will give OrbusVR a try.
