So I got into the DC Universe Online beta, and while I cannot technically comment on the game itself, I suppose I can reference stuff that is already publicly available. The cinematic opening, which debuted earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, was brand-new to me. Let's just say it was a lot more...intense...than I was expecting. I mean, it was GREAT. Better than I had been led to believe. But, man oh man, when Lex Luthor impales Superman with a kryponite-tipped spear, I could just hear all the parents ushering their preteens out of the room. This game is clearly trying to crib from the WoW crowd. Obviously, the opening cinematic does not reflect actual gameplay but rather attempts to set a tone, as all good opening cinemas should. SoE has achieved this goal, no question.
However, the game was a 15.5G download. Are they KIDDING?!?
