The Elder Scrolls Online beta is absolutely nothing special

I've always had a profound antipathy toward the Elder Scrolls franchise.

Massively Exclusive: The sweet and sour of ArcheAge's third closed beta

Forgive me for getting this out of the way up front: I frickin' hate betas. Loathe them. Avoid them like the plague, usually. Why then, did I find myself foregoing sleep for the better part of last week to log into XL Games' third closed beta test for ArcheAge? Curiosity, for sure, and maybe jus...
