The game is officially in open beta! Just go to the website and download.

Main site: http://vindictus.nexon.net/

Vindictus isn't your standard MMO, but more of a Monster Hunter/Phantasy Star Online type thing. You start in town and can group with others and hit up dungeons to slaughter things. Like Monster Hunter, most of the armor you get in Vindictus you will make yourself. Instead of enemies/bosses dropping gear, they usually drop materials that you use to craft armor sets (though some gear does drop from bosses). Of course some materials are very rare to come across, but luckily there is a fully functional auction house available right off the bat!

You can download the game here:
here:http://download2.nexon.net/Game/Vindictus/Downloader/VindictusCBDownloaderV002.exe

System Requirements:

Things of note:

-Most PAers seem to have gone west but a few of us are on east, west is most likely the way to go. Will update with guild info when I get a chance.

-Evie is now playable for NA servers!

-At the moment, there are only 3 classes available for the American open beta. There are at least 5 known classes for the game right now, two of them, a Druid and Giant, are pretty much non existent at the moment, but will be in the game at some point. Pics of the giant have surfaced, so he will most likely be next.

You can score a sweet in-game Gnoll Chieftain Hood if you participate in the Open Beta:
• Log in to the Open Beta
• Head over to the Traveler’s Shop and speak with Kirstie.
• She’ll give you a special quest to bring her some items which will only be found during the Open Beta.
• Once you’ve completed the quest, you will receive a Gnoll Chieftain Hood for your character and a special title: “Swag Owner.”

Make sure you grab one!

    So...there's more than 2 classes but only 2 are available for now?

    And when the hell is it actually going to turn on? I thought it started today.

    Why would they use a service named so aptly? Pandora's Media Booster?

    Sorta kinda but not really here and there.

    Basically it is a hack and slash game where you murder hordes of monsters to death and spin and jump and dive and roll and block and all that and generally do the awesome plundering murderous hero gig and orphan as many baby monsters as you possibly can just because you're a bastard like that.

    Kinda like Dante in a kettle helmet. Possibly wearing frilly striped underwear as well, but nobody will see it unless your metal pants fall off.

    Now and then something a little tougher pops up. Something that wants to take your kettle helmet and chew on it. Those buggers are where the monster hunter style OH GOD RUN FIRE FROM THE SKY IT BURNS GET OUT OF THE WAY ARGRAGLEMYSPINE boss fights come in.

    Unfortunately or fortunately, you're not making armor and weapons out of specific monster bits. These are too scrunty to make things from.

    If you have the same problem you just need to go to the install directory and run the exe there. It will run the update.

    While the servers are experiencing their opening rush I've been checking out the settings. The game is pretty - and there is a setting for 'Xbox 360 controller' so that's pretty neat.

    Someone with a wired controller check it out when things smooth out!

    There is also an in-game video recording feature. Hit scroll apparently.

    Yep Starting Pando really speeds it up. Bah.

    err..i've been patching it with pando from the start and have yet to go over 4 KB/s\
    edit: i'm also pretty sure only the initial client downloader uses pando and the patcher doesn't, pando just runs in the background seeding the initial download and rapeing your upload

    I played a little bit (did two missions, one solo, one with a group)...this is actually pretty cool. Feels more akin to Guild Wars in terms of the "MMO" part...lots of instancing.

    But the combat is fun and fast and not like 99% of the MMOs out there, which I quite like. It feels more akin to a Dynasty Warriors game so far.
