Scarlet Blade Closed Beta Ends!

As I've mentioned in a previous post, I recently stared playing Scarlet Blade. Pretty soon on March 26th (Tomorrow!) The Closed Beta (I will refer to this as CB from now on) will end at 6:30 PM PST. While Open Beta (OB) has not been announced yet, The servers will be wiped, which means I'll lose my character data :( Unlike CB, when OB starts, the servers will not be wiped when it is over, so you can keep your character.

Here is my CB Character Ibis, Isn't she cute? (I love girls in glasses)

After getting out of the training area, you end up in Enocia. Ibis is still wearing the basic armor.
During the weekend, they were giving out schoolgirl costumes to all who were playing. So, as you can guess, here's Ibis in one. (Don't get her mad...)
Shooting...
 And just standing around...
Not only are the characters pretty, the environment is gorgeous, Here is an overlook of Enocia.
 And sitting in a Junkyard with my Robot pet, who I named GLaDOS (After a certain villian)
Finally Ibis on her bike!

When OB comes around, I'll try to see if I could create her again. Either way, this game turned out to be very fun; It is fast paced, and the hotkey system is very beneficial to getting things done. The Quests are straightforward, and I love the writing and innuendo. I think this will be become my F2P MMO game of choice. Everyone who is interested in the game, feel free to join when OB begins!
Leave any questions about the game in the comments. :)

***UPDATE*** Open Beta has begun!! (That was F%$&ing fast, good work GMs!) I've already got a new version of Ibis (She still looks the same as these Closed Beta screenshots) I play on the Valkyrie server, if you want to meet up or anything.

Sharin no Kuni Funny Moment

I was playing the eroge Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo, and I ran across this line from Sachi (Redheaded girl with the ponytail), and it made me crack up.
That's all really. A great shout-out to the translators for this excellent line.

Scarlet Blade

In the US, Aeria Games is going to start the closed beta test for the Free-to-play MMO Scarlet Blade (It is also known as Queen's Blade in Korea...not related to the Japanese anime series.) It is a game with a heavy focus on fighting especially PvP battles. The game is also known for it's rather adult themes. The cast is ONLY female and as can be expected, scantily clothed. The game also lets you select from six classes: Defender (The Swordswoman), Medic (Healer class), Punisher, Sentinel (Tank class), Shadow Walker and Whipper. The game's characters are split in two factions which you can join as well. As I have said before in other articles, I love this crap, so I know I'm in. Here is a story trailer for the game:

And here's the character trailer:

If you are interested in this game, you can join the closed beta here.
There is more info and screenshots to be round at my favorite RPG website: RPGamer.

*Edit, I joined the closed beta, and I really like the game. You can play with WASD or mouse and commands are easy to pull off with a number system (The numeric keypad is super helpful for this) I chose the medic class and I named my character Ibis (After a certain SRW character) The graphics are great too, set it to best to see all kinds of fun stuff.
