I still do not see official news from NCSoft about the NDA being droped. Curse is NOT NCSoft nor reliable. Please provide information or a link to the NCSoft site for confirmation.

Here you go! We originally confirmed with NC West via email, but this Twitter account should verify the NDA droppage for you: http://twitter.com/aion_ayase/statuses/2194347669.

It's not like it was a real beta anyway. The game is already released for over a year. It was a preview to generate publicity.

Exactly!! No offense to the developers of Aion, but I really don't get the idea of a beta for a released game (not one that is this extensive) plus the idea of an NDA? Really? For a game that is released? Even the uneducated can use Google translator to gather information about Aion.

Even if they are trying out new server code for stability beyond just localizing the text and graphics, it is obvious that the beta here is just to generate buzz. Seems to be working for Massively though!

Pssst.... Massively, you can probably get some pretty big scoops if you just look at the release.

Thank you Brooke, still wish they would do it a little more official, but that puts my mind at rest. Now to get some stuff published finally. Let's hear it for the little guys being kept in the dark :)

I wish it didn't...I'd love to play this....

Ack, it uses GameGuard!?

Well that rules Aion out for me then. Was really looking forward to it too. :'(

Aw, come on, who doesn't like a fun little rootkit with their game?

If it keeps people from cheating it's worth it. It doesn't harm your machine or keep you from doing anything else besides cheating in NCSoft games. Anyone that suggests otherwise hasn't used it recently.

Ummm, actually... No, it doesn't keep people from cheating as it's depressingly easy to get around (Google is your friend, the hows and whyfors are all over the net). And if you don't think it effects your system, then obviously you don't know what a rootkit is or how this one functions.

GameGuard's reputation is terrible, and deservedly so.

Umm, I hate to ask the dumb question, but what is Gameguard? It sounds like some kind of copy protection software. Is that what it is?
