Jumptown Girl, she’s been living in her alpha world,
It’s gonna be revised more with tricks
Beyond the state it’s in in 3.16 –
But that’s a fix.
That’s all in Star Citizen’s post mortem-em-em
About the patch you can learn of again-in-in
You’ll see it’s got some stuff, free fly tough, they’re in love with a Jumptown girl!
Will the rest of this week’s beta news reference Billy Joel songs? Maybe.
- Mad World has an alpha coming on February 23rd, and it wants you to know about it. Give us a trailer, you’re the alpha test.
- Alpha 4 has officially gone live for Ravendawn. You need to know about this because they had to be a big shot.
- Sunset World Online used to be Element Quest but it’s relaunching with a new name. You can call it whatever, but it’s always an MMO to me.
- Embers Adrift is moving toward beta. Everybody’s talking ’bout the craft game, quest game, it’s still MMOs to me.
- Last but not least, Palia is going with a free-to-play business model. They didn’t start the model shift, it’s been always going since the competition’s showing.
Yes, I’m aware most of those lines don’t scan with the original songs. That’s just what you’re going to have to deal with. Look, why not relax and take a look at the full list of games in testing down below? It’s not that big a deal. Unless something shifted test states without us realizing it and you’re going to let us know in the comments. That’s a bigger deal.
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.
