JackFetch Posted December 13, 2008 Report Share Posted December 13, 2008 So it's out now. Technically it's an open beta, but that's just in the same way everything Google makes is still a beta. It will always be in beta. I played with it some last night, and here's my thoughts: 1. Sometimes it won't log in. Only took two tries for me, but some are having more problems. 2. It's very crowded. They need to use more than one server because it's shoulder to virtual shoulder everywhere you go. 3. Some things weren't as promised. Main thing is the movie theater. Last year they showed an area you go to and there are many choices you can go in that show different things just like in real life. In reality there is one theater showing a movie trailer. Imagine 100 people all crammed together all talking and you can't get them to shut up. Also, there are ads around that you can make full screen, but you can't make the movie screen full screen. That means you have 100 jackasses all dancing or standing in front of you while you are trying to watch something. They also said the videos would stream in and start right away. Instead they load the whole video before it plays. I sat there and waited to find out it was a movie trailer for that Vampire movie all the girls like. 4. They charge real money for every little thing. They took the idea that MS introduced and ran with it. I can't see spending .49 for a cowboy hat for my avatar when I wouldn't wear one in real life. 5. I'm an adult. I should be able to turn off the curse filter but can't. Also, the filter isn't very good. Sometimes people will say something that gets blocked that obviously isn't a curse word.
